Review of Beach Club Bar & Grill
Reviewed 1 day ago

I walked along the beach and ended up at the Beach Club Bar and Grill.
It was a really nice setting with a little breeze coming off the sea.
The menu was pretty extensive with a great choice of local cuisine. It did take a long time for our food order to come- 'Island Time' but it was worth the wait.
It was a nice touch that the bar had an iced water dispenser too as you would expect from a beach resort.

Amazing stay at the Fairmont
Reviewed 4 days ago

I stayed at the FRP in Barbados in March, and I couldn't be more happy. I had a beach front jr suite, which I highly recommend. These rooms come with a butler.... I am usually very self sufficient, but they were outstanding. They even went into town to get me some Gatorade as I was feeling dehydrated. The beach is spectacular and the water calm and clear. I loved the pool; great bar service, warm water and close to restaurant and the bar. The rooms were modern, spacious and new. Was an outstanding stay, couldn't be better and I will definitely return.

First Class Fairmont Experience
Reviewed 5 days ago

The newly refurbished Fairmont Royal Pavillon exceeded all of my expectations! A truly beautiful hotel with lush manicured grounds, lovely, spacious, clean and freshly appointed rooms overlooking the oceanside, warm and friendly staff, and good food. Most importantly to my wife and myself was the exquisite beach with soft white sand and clear warm waters. No problems getting lounges in the morning and plenty of space between the next umbrella setup and ours. There were even some snorkeling spots right by the hotel (although I'm sure better ones exist elsewhere if you're into it). Room had a sizable balcony from which to watch the waves lapping at the shoreline, and the A/C worked great (and not noisy). Had to turn it down or we'd freeze!

As a very picky traveler with unfortunately expensive tastes, I'd come back to this property in a heartbeat. Kudos to Charlene, the charming and gracious concierge who took care of all our needs with a smile and a hug.

Family Holiday

The Fairmont is a fabulous hotel set on the beach. We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was on the beach and pure luxury. We love the lush tropical gardens the hotel is set in. The staff are so very friendly and helpful. We would return.
