It’s a wonderful resort, nice rooms, beautiful beach. Good food but expensive. Te personnel at the breakfast destroyed the good feeling though with their attitude, made us to feel unwelcome. That feeling followed us all days so we left 2 days earlier than planned.

Alexander E. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Wonderful stay, overall totally positive. NOT happy with the departure / check-out service. Aside from Glenn on the front desk, the rest of the team were not as friendly or helpful as the rest of the entire hotel and let all their other colleagues down - it was a very sour note after a fabulous 8 days at the hotel. We were told at the airport on 24th August 2022 that we would be compensated for the airport shuttle... and yet the front desk wanted nothing to do with the BD$ 64 bill , despite confirming to the Platinum Customs Handler that we could settle it with the hotel. Great shame , to what was otherwise a wonderful wonderful stay. A small bill after the thousands we spent , but the front desk squad left us feeling disappointed after such hard work from all their colleagues and manager (Jean Christophe) who all worked so well and hard to make the rest of the experience enjoyable. We would have returned to the hotel but this has seriously made us think twice about it .

Dear Alexander E., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion. I am sorry that there were parts of your experience which did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Fairmont, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Justin Clarke, Manager Digital Marketing & Communications.
