Things to See and Do While Staying at Fairmont Royal Pavilion

Your options at this location will include some exciting recreation opportunities, so your vacation is filled with non-stop excitement and comfort.

This resort is luckily in close proximity to the water, so the fact that there's no pool is not even noticed by most guests who can instead head for the beach just steps away. Even when they stay at a vacation spot with a pool, many visitors have such a good time on the beaches in Barbados that they make little use of the pool during their visit.


This resort is an especially fitting place for tennis buffs, because vacationers staying here can choose to play a match or two on the property. Guests will find 2 tennis courts on-site. Evening matches are also a possibility here, since you have the option of using a lit court.
