Beautiful setting. Pool heated. Fantastic Happy hour at Luana. Staff goes out of their way to make your stay wonderful. Great benefits with presidents club. Beautiful bathroom with lots of amentities. Hale Kai restaurant is reasonable and right on the beachside for watching the sunset. Browns Deli for breakfast and lunch is fast and great food.

My wife and I stayed at the Orchid for a week with a company event in February. The location of the hotel is a delight. You feel completely isolated but can easily get to supermarkets, restaurants, etc. We loved the room. Every room has a view to the Pacific. We'd happily stay there again and again. I have been on different islands in Hawaii on several occasions. I have never found better and more accessible snorkeling. You can snorkel from beach in front of the hotel and see turtles and a va...

Great place; would stay again. Great working with General Manager's assistant--couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Housekeeping needs some work though. Baseboards throughout the hotel were grimy and dusty. Never vacuumed the room. Requests for flipping mattress (bad back) and unscented toiletries took three tries before corrected. One day we came back to a tropical throw pillow on bed--other days, housekeeping never brought out of closet after turndown. Room itself was large. I usua... Read more

Okay, so it is a fancy resort on the west coast of the big island, but actually it was great! Very nice staff, beautiful view of the sunset. I would come back in a heartbeat. We did not eat there, but would have.

Five friends who have attended many luaus through the years all agreed that this was the best luau all of us have every been to. The food was great and the show provided the history of Samoa, Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii. It was an exciting journey throughout Polynesia and an expansive feast all rolled into one. The production featured fire, stilted warriors, drama, traditional Polynesian music and dance that are all set under the stars at the beautiful KalahuipuaÔ??a - the land area where k... Read more

I love list hotel. You can not beat the friendly staff, beautiful grounds, and comfy beds. My favorite part is to rent a cabana (join the Presidents Club for free and get a discount) on the beach to just relax, read and enjoy a good book in all with an awesome view! Do not expect this resort to be cheap but if you want to spoil yourself this is the place for you. There is a resort fee also but you do get parking, 2 small bottles of water, wi-fi and a few other things for this fee.

We booked an ocean view room for one night. After getting to our room we noticed dirty dishes outside our room door. Thinking that someone might still be in the room we called the front desk. We were assured that no one should be in the room so we went in and there wasn╩╗t anyone and the room was clean. That is when we noticed that our view was of the golf course and not the ocean. Called front desk again, this time Chantel shared that she would relocate us and also grant us a late check ou... Read more

Loved the pool, the room was lovely, and the service was wonderful. They even left a book for our daughter when they turned down the bed. The only downside was that food was overpriced, especially the buffet breakfast.

What an incredible hotel experience. We stayed in a fabulous suite on the 3rd floor for our first few nights and then a regular room with an ocean view on the 5th floor for the last night. The service was impeccable, the food amazing (especially at Brown's Beach restaurant for my wife's birthday celebration) and we were catered to like royalty for the entire time. We would like to point out the work of the Director, who went out of her way to take care of us, in particular during the two days... Read more

Stayed there a week for work. Staff was great, super nice and friendly. Food and bar service was great too. Having just come from the Four Seasons Hualaia (also for work) it's a whole different atmosphere. This is definitely a large hotel, and it's on a beautiful spot. The property used to be a Ritz, and you can see this from the size of the guest rooms. The cove was man made but great to snorkel, I had the afternoon off and went straight out to snorkel. Was given a mask, and swam out past the r... Read more

My wife and I booked a 5 night stay for our 5 year Wedding anniversary. We read all the reviews and looked at hundreds of pictures of the property, but in no way could we grasp the full depth of the physical experience. This was by far the best resort we have experienced. The resort is seated right on the water with a private bay that presents great water access without having to brave the ocean waves. Great for snorkeling, paddle boarding, and swimming (especially for kids). The local sea turtl... Read more

We have stayed at many Fairmont Hotels . This is our first time at this specific one. I have given this hotel 3 stars but I was contemplating 2 stars. The hotel should be 5 stars for the location, property and brand. I believe that proper training of the staff and greater supervision would make a huge difference. We stayed on the Fairmont Gold private floor. The room was of average size. The concierge lounge has the best amenities I have ever experienced. They offer a really nice breakfast, ... Read more

Room was good overall, a bit dated. Expected the room and bathroom to be more modern. Good ocean and golf course view. The resort grounds was good. Great restaurants and good beach. Nice complimentary shuttle that went to the nearby shops.

Been there twice and would go back. Nice rooms, nice private beach. Can snorkel right out in front and both times have seen sea turtles. Japanese restaurant had good sushi rolls. Shopping center within 5 mins driving has nice stores and a cool little restaurant called the blue room. We rented a car and drove to the winery on the island. It was a nice drive and a cool destination.

This resort is a must stay. Just like staying at fantasy island. Professional in every way. Very nice people! The amenities are great. Pools are great. Onsite eating! Romantic as well as family oriented. Must see! The resort is out in the middle of nowhere however, we loved the seclusion. Awesome!!
