Frank world traveler.
I’ve stayed at The Royal Pavilion a few times the service and staff are exceptional your beautiful room is right on the beach and minutes away from many top restaurants.

What a view!
This was our first trip to Barbados. I loved the location, close to Holetown. The beach was serene. The best part of the hotel was the beautiful balcony & view from our second floor room. The Barbadian people are so kind & welcoming. Being it was our first time to Barbados, I was a little shocked at the high prices for food, drinks & taxi service. That would be my only complaint.

Awesome place to call home for a week (or more)
Great stay. Everything you would expect from Fairmont. However, dont be fooled that the "meet and greet" service at BGI Airport is an actual transfer to the hotel. Noooooo. Its just someone to walk you through immigration and then you are still on the hook for getting to the hotel yourself. They make a big deal about knowing your flight info for this which is silly - it is a meet and greet only. Big deal.

Delightful hotel
I have stayed at the Royal Pavillion in the past and it is always a pleasure to return. The staff are all charming and the new rooms are elegant and comfortable. I notice that the menu now includes more Bajan food, which I found a little too spicy for my taste. Also the live music was rather intrusive at times. When sitting in the bar it was sometimes difficult to hear what people were saying.
