"Stayed for our honeymoon "
Beautiful beach front suite with our own butler Canapés served on our own private deck each evening which led on to the beach The service was 5* and the setting and grounds stunning Chaucer service also a bonus
"A week with impeccable service"
I stay at the Fairmont quite frequently, over a hundred nights per year, so I had high expectations when we arrived at the Fairmont Barbados. I have to say they "hit it out of the park", from the welcome we received, to the personalized service the whole stay. The beach location cannot be beat. The food was fantastic. But it was the personalized service that really stands out to us: Ryan at watersports very patiently teaching my wife to paddleboard and having a kayak ready for me every day; Erskine and our conversations each day when he came by to stock the room; Kirk the chef with some cooking tips I'm going to try when I get home, and Jennelle at Taboras who gave us all the details of our local dinner of fritters, flying fish/cou cou and rum cake, Don't think you will find a friendlier and more dedicated staff anywhere.
"One of the best weeks of my life"
I stayed there last year for my brother and his wife's wedding. I didn't think to write a review until coming across this app. Where to start' This is an absolutely majestic property, I can't imagine a nicer location. The layout of the facility and its location adjacent to the ocean is literally from a dream. The staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly. The rooms are absolutely beautiful with breathtaking views of the beach and the sea. I would recommend to anyone to treat themselves to a stay here. It is definitely worth the cost and you will be counting down the days until your next visit.
"A very friendly hotel"
My wife and I have just returned from an 11 night stay at this hotel. It is in an excellent location, on a beautiful beach, blue warm seas and very friendly staff. This was not a cheap break and we knew Barbados to be expensive. The current exchange rate of $1.20 makes it VERY expensive. The rooms were nice, but have stayed in better, breakfasts were average and definitely not 5*. The bar was generally empty as it was so expensive. We had 8 evening meals in the hotel and they were all excellent. Many of the staff had been there 20+ years and they were exceptionally pleasant and friendly. This hotel is not posh. In fact some areas are quite tatty and in need of modernisation. Highlights of the holidays were watching the baby turtles hatch and make their way down the beach at night and a trip on Good Times Too. A luxury catamaran that picked us up on the beach.
"Beautiful and relaxing but not 10/10"
We've just returned from a lovely 5 day break at the Fairmont. The location is super, about 30/40 minutes from the airport, right on the beach and not too far from Holetown. The staff are polite and friendly. Our room (one floor up) was bright, clean and had a very comfortable bed. The shower was quite weak though. Our sons had a ground floor room and this smelt a bit musty and damp. The beach and sea were the best bits of the place, truly stunning. Warm and perfectly clean sea, golden sands and plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas to laze under. Breakfast was okay, although flies became a bit of a problem as the week went on. Lunch and dinner were very expensive and really nothing special. Service was very slow, something we found everywhere in Barbados. Once you've checked out of your room there is no place to go with air conditioning, which is a shame and unusual for a 5 star hotel. The complimentary afternoon tea was a nice touch, but again food was nothing special. Taxis are costly eg: 30 BBD to Holetown which is 5 minutes for £12. We wouldn't rush back as we have had better value for money for 5 star service and food elsewhere in the world. This doesn't mean we didn't enjoy it though, we felt relaxed immediately and a had a great time.
