At a Glance

A family-friendly resort vibe pervades this pink-hued hotel, set on one of the prettiest beaches in Barbados.

Indagare Loves

  • The long, wide beach is one of the island's most beautiful, and calm surf encourages hours of swimming, lying on rafts, snorkeling and stand up paddleboarding
  • Two restaurants, one formal and one casual, offer excellent dining options on property
  • Ground floor Junior Suites have private decks with chaise lounges allowing direct access to the beach


The best value on Barbados must be the Fairmont's Royal Pavilion, located toward the northern end of the island's west coast. The property boats 72 large, chic rooms and 24 Junior Suites that open to terraces that lead directly to the beach. The property also has a three-bedroom villa.

The sprawling entrance and lobby are a study in open-air, flow-through architecture. The pink façade, terracotta roof tiles and tiled floors add slightly old-fashioned grandeur to the relaxed beach vibe. Guests have access to the excellent Royal Westmoreland course nearby, and nonmotorized water sports at the nearly mile-long beach are complimentary. However, the property does not have a spa and the gym is limited.

Who Should Stay

Those looking for good value and visitors who like to be slightly removed from the action. This is a great option for families as all of the rooms connect.
