  • 8.0.Very good

    The location and the beach are beautiful and quiet as are the rooms which are great and the property in general. Staff are very friendly and generally attentive. For the price I would expect more convenience offerings to be included in the rate. It comes across as a bit cheap for such an expensive hotel for example that airport transport is not just included for all guests. The food is also good (especially breakfast) but expensively priced for what it is, would exceed expectations more if the price was say 20% less. Generally speaking though we had a fantastic stay and would recommend to others.

    Delightful hotel

    I have stayed at the Royal Pavillion in the past and it is always a pleasure to return. The staff are all charming and the new rooms are elegant and comfortable. I notice that the menu now includes more Bajan food, which I found a little too spicy for my taste. Also the live music was rather intrusive at times. When sitting in the bar it was sometimes difficult to hear what people were saying.
