  • 8.0.Very Good

    The rooms were very clean and well maintained. Loved the view from the balcony and the proximity to the beach. The food in the restaurants was very good. Access to the beach recliners was awesome. My only critique was the lack of communication. I had to go to the front desk a number of times to ask questions, when I felt there should have been written material left in my room detailing the specifics about the amenities available to me, my airport transfer, high tea, etc.

    Excellent stay! Thank you

    The staff friendliness and personal touch was what is immediately apparently at the Fairmont. They made us feel like we were the only guests they had staying with them. If you’re looking for a party atmosphere then this isn’t for you. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, a stunning beach and luxury then the Fairmont is perfection. We moved onto a different hotel on the south of Barbados for the remainder of our trip and it’s fair to say we didn’t appreciate how good the fairmont was until we left!

    Bedrooms was spacious and all see facing with direct beach and sea views. All staff were very kind and the service was exceptional from concierge, dining, beach, and in room. Water sports were great with an efficient and friendly team.

    covid affected review

    We stayed at the Fairmount over New Years. In terms of location and beach front, it has to be one of the best located on the West Coast. Amazing views. I don’t think we can rate the hotel service accurately as due to covid, it seems the hotel was short staffed. The service was extremely slow. Staff were friendly and attentive but everything took a long time. The beach has access to water sports. All rooms have a similar beach view. A really nice pool area. There is no spa at the hotel.

    Charlene, the concierge is amazing. She was so sweet and helped us plan our itinerary. She answered every question we had and acted like a friend. The rest of the staff always smiled and said hello. The room was gorgeous and always clean.

    Beautiful and quiet beach. Provide a butler service but I didn’t now use it much. Room was well appointed. Food selection is limited at the hotel but close to very good restaurants and it is easy to catch a taxi.

    I like the location and the closeness of the rooms to the beach. I also like how quiet and comforting it was. The staff are very nice and helpful. I didn’t like the restaurants because it was not only expensive but the food was not that great for the price.
