We have been to Barbados many times, and on this occasion chose the Fairmont Royal Pavillion for it's stunning beach location and many excellent recent reviews. The room we had was a ground floor beach suite with our own sun deck just a step over to the beach and the warm blue ocean. All the amenities, clean and up to date.
From the moment we arrived, the staff greet you warmly and call you by your name. The service was simply surperb from the waiting staff, the chambermaids, the bar staff, the concierge, the doormen to the water sports team. The reason - the excellent management.
During the 9 nights we stayed there, the Manager was very visible around the property at most times of the day and evening. His morning management meeting was conducted in a corner by the pool, standing up! (could we all learn something here?)
Admittedly, we eat out most nights - Barbados and in particular the West coast has some terrific restaurants. The food in the hotel was good on the two nights we eat in.
For a hotel to enjoy a lovely r&r break, no children (this time of year) with such a fabulous ocean side room - then this is the place.
