Great hotel

Posted Aug 29, 2017
Pros: All the rooms are ocean view
Cons: Hotel could use some upgrading
Location: Location is about half hour from airport and Bridgetown. There is a mall about 7 mins from the hotel along with great restaurants
The hotel is in a great location right on the beach. The hotel grounds were very well kept, everywhere in Barbados seems to be well kept which is great! The beach is amazing, waves are very calm, all rooms face the ocean. Rooms are always cleaned, restaurant Taboras was great for lunch and dinner. They have different themes every night to try to diversify the menu. Staff are all so amazingly great and helpful.

The staff makes the difference!!!!

Posted May 17, 2017 on Hotels
First trip to Barbados so I chose the Fairmont....didn't want any surprises on such a anticipated vacation. The grounds and the buildsing are excellent...it is a Fairmont after all. The difference maker was absolutely the staff!!! Although I am in the middle of a two week stay, I felt compelled to tell everyone just how great the service has been at this hotel. From the moment I checked in, everyone has gone out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and every need taken care of. I will update this review when vacation is complete but I want to mention Dawn and Shane who have both been unbelievable! Dawn brings a huge smile everyday when she drops by to see if I need anything.....these are the type people every hotel/resort needs!

hotel was perfect

Posted Mar 14, 2017
Pros: it was all very good
Cons: very little
Location: you are on top of the beach and can walk along it to Holetown You need to use transport to get anywhere from the hotel
You felt that every staff member wanted you to have a good time and couldn't do enough for you. Any issues or requests were dealt with and with a smile

Great south shore resort.

Absolutely excellent hotel facilities and service. Food is overpriced. Water activities hours are needlessly short.

Super duper staff and fantastic location

Posted Sep 10, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is on the beach which I believe there is not many hotels that are situated right on the beach in Barbados. The staff are ALL so friendly, welcoming and do their very best to keep you happy. They were so good to my son ( who is 1 and a half). They offered to prepare special meals for him. Heat up his meals and provide extra entertainment to keep him occupied. They even created a bumper for to cover the corners of our side night table. In room dining - great, staff come with a crisp white table cloth, fresh flowers, basket of warm bread and of course served with a lovely smile....we loved it! All the staff are great, I can't mention their specific names because there are so many to mention and I am afraid I may upset someone should I leave their name out. We had a great time and my son had an even better time!!!!!
