Fairmont Royal Pavillion

Fairmont is a great hotel brand with quality hotels all over the world. Based on my research it could be considered a light Four Seasons, but I need more hotels to judge that myself.

I arrived in Fairmont Royal Pavillion after a nice experience in Cobblers Cove which is located 5 miles away on the same street. A welcome drink was served before I was escorted to the room. The one checking me in wasn’t very enthusiastic as one should be. Especially in a small hotel where you don’t check in a lot of people on daily basis.

I stayed in a beachfront junior suite which was recently renovated. What I liked most about the suite was the sea view and the beach right in front of it. The design was comparable to a Four Seasons, but the bed was far from Four Seasons standard and not very comfortable. The room also had a 42 inch flat screen Tv and nice artwork.

With only 72 rooms I had high expectations for the personalized service. I already knew the service level in The Caribbean isn’t very good because of their mentality, but by their standards I expected a great experience. I got what I expected. Friendly, well trained staff made a difference. The facilities were acceptable, but could need an update.

Overall the best of my experiences in Barbados and highly recommended.

My opinion: Great experience.
