Dawn

DawnHertfordshire_uk (Hertfordshire, uk) on Jan 21, 2023

This has to be the friendliest hotel in the world. The management & staff go out of their way to make your holiday special. The rooms all overlook a beautiful beach with a warm clear blue sea to swim in! Both restaurants offer excellent food & entertainment. The gardens are exquisite & you occasionally see monkeys & humming birds. There are two bars and the Lone Star restaurant on the beach within two minutes walk, so no taxis needed! The sound of the waves & a rum punch all make for the perfect place to relax. Can’t wait to return!

Definitely will be back. Great hotel

denisetaylor (St John-in-Cornwall, United Kingdom) on Jan 20, 2023

Fabulous hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Amazing food. Rooms are great. Nicely located to get around the island My only negative is the pillows. Too large. I always travel with one, but purchased another from the Waitrose supermarket, cheap. Recommend the Calypso Catamaran with Nick. Lots of food and booze. He owns the boat, so more personal touch Tips; you don’t need loads of clothes. Beach wear and shorts I took an inflatable and sunbathed on it. The sea is safe and there is a good swim area We hired a lovely car from a local. Loads cheaper than the airport 150 Barbados dollars a day Lots of taxis and regular buses. Just stick your hand out and they will stop wherever. Supermarkets sell everything.

Another Outstanding Stay

IrishFan-80 (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) on Jan 19, 2023

On our 5th visit to Barbados we enjoyed our 2nd stay here for a week in a beachfront suite and did not want to leave. The RP sits on the best stretch of beach and is now walkable from Holetown to Saint Francis during the day. The staff here makes any visit terrific, starting with housekeeping but including all of the dining. A special mention to Tremayne at the front desk and Richard at Taboras who went above and beyond! We loved the Palm Terrace breakfast and this trip no birds! Ha. The Wednesday Managers cocktail reception is a highlight. As was seeing that "Sir Douglas" is still in residence!! We actually had our most delicious dinner at Taboras--and yes that includes Tides & Lone Star. As Americans we enjoy the NFL football games which Flow limits. Also we missed the FOX News Channel which is the preferred news site for most. Hopefully they will be included on our next trip. Highly highly recommend.

I'm not reviewing the hotel....

danielj69 (Norwich, United Kingdom) on Jan 12, 2023

whilst im aware this is a hotel we didn't actually stay here so my review is for the terrace and beach club only, but my, what a wonderful place. My family and I were staying in a villa complex over the road from the Fairmont and boy how lucky were we. The staff at the restaurant/terrace and the beach club were amazing and made us feel so welcome, and the food was absolutely delicious. We also used the watersports here on the beach and they were so helpful with our kids (13&7) with jet skis, tarzan boat, Big mabel and tow floats and we just left them to it knowing they were in safe hands. We loved this place and there is such a relaxed and friendly vibe..... Just wish we could afford a couple of nights in the hotel to finish off an all round review.

Perfect Fit for Families

Dee252 (Dublin) on Jan 09, 2023

Very attentive service especially as we were a large family with 15 plus dining daily for lunch / dinner. Kids served fast and food always good with plenty of options for everyone. Did some superb Turtle / shipwreck trips arranged via Derek. Rooms very clean and spectacular views of sunsets from each one. Overall staff very helpful with JC (General Manager) always visible and attentive.
