Glitter Bay vs. Royal Pavilion

We are planning to stay at Fairmont Glitter Bay (B&B package), but was wondering if the Royal Pavilion is worth the extra bucks?

thanks

Definitely stay at Royal Pavilion. We toured it and Glitter Bay in July (for write-ups I was doing), and Glitter Bay is sadly in need of extensive remodeling. The grounds there are pretty. It recently was sold to investors who they are hoping will really fix it up.

Royal Pavilion was totally redone in 2003 and the rooms are all fantastic - facing the ocean. You'd be much happier there.

We honeymooned at Glitter Bay May 2003. We were supposed to stay at teh Pavillion, but after we made our res they called to tell us that they would be closed for renovations. They made up for it by giving us a penthouse at Glitter Bay for the same price. Glitter Bay was great. The staff and service was great. The grounds are pretty, but the rooms were OK. Nothing great, and it wan't cheap. If it were me, I would stay at the Pavillion. It's practically brand new. Enjoy!

Since you stayed there in May 2003, the Royal Pavilion was totally redone and is gorgeous. You were fortunate in that Glitter Bay gave you the penthouse, or you would not have given such a glowing review of Glitter Bay. Just a couple of months ago it was sold to investors who hope to totally redo it and make it nice once again. But currently, other than the grounds, it is very much in need of refurbishing. Puddlejumper is much better off at Royal Pavilion.
