The hotel is simply superb and we will be returning yet again for another two weeks in May 2017. Everything is well managed, the staff are friendly, food is sumptuous, ambience is too good for words and I could not find much wrong. The hotel manager is a Canadian gentleman who is very hands on. Knows his stuff and leaves...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Just returned from 3 weeks in Barbados staying at Sugar Hill with membership at the Fairmont Royal Pavillion Beach Club. Having holidayed in Barbados 20 times previously we obviously love the island, it's people and have generally received excellent customer service wherever we have stayed. However this year the membership of the beach club and the level of customer service...

We stayed 2 nights and loved it. Wish the ocean had been calmer as we could only enjoy the view but still, very peaceful on our second floor balcony. We went to the gym twice and found it to be adequate. We also ordered room service for dinner both nights as we just loved the view from the balcony. We...

First and foremost the staff is terrific. Everyone from the concierge, to the front desk, to the housekeeping staff and waitstaff (maybe save one) were incredibly accommodating. We've been to islands before where you get the sense that you are unwelcome. That isn't the case in Barbados and certainly isn't the case at the Fairmont. We loved the concierge staff....

Great location on west coast. Hotel has beach which is excellent and better than majority on Barbados. Sun loungers available for all guests which is not the same with certain resort chains. Staff are so friendly and helpful, all the way from check in to room attendants and beach club staff. Particular reference to Romario at Beach Club - so...

The Fairmont Royal Pavilion located in St James is situated on one of the best beaches in Barbados. The sea can be a little rough at times, but when this occurs there is entertainment watching the surfers. The hotel pool is superb and the hotel gardens & grounds are immaculate. Beware of the resident monkeys! Restaurant is fine with some...

I stayed here with my wife and literally everything was first class. The staff throughout the hotel were very friendly, the rooms well furnished and bright, the food in the restaurants excellent and the towels and sun beds first rate and good quality. We were both sorry to leave.

Location. The position of the hotel is excellent, facing a nice sandy beach and surrounded by well-kept gardens. Rooms. We choose an Ocean Front Deluxe Room because the Beachfront Junior Suites, although larger, have a deck which is overlooked by the rooms above. My request for a top-floor room which I sent twice by email was not acknowledge and we...

Beautiful spot for a casual lunch. Good selection of food items, well-presented and cooked very well. Inexpensive for the West Coast. Friendly staff and a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. Will definitely return and recommend.

We have been to Barbados several times, bot only once before stayed on the West Coast. Having decided to travel during half-term, accommodation was scarce, and we ended up at the Royal Pavilion by default. I was slightly concerned upon reading some of the negative reviews on this site, but i need not have worried because this is an excellent...
