Went to work a group of 450 guests and from bellboys to banquets to groups wow just a pleasure to work with, If they ever tell me that we're going to the Fairmont in Kona i'm gonna be jazzed! The rooms are large you have a choice of shower or tub which is nice and the small waterfalls all over the property really sound great at night!
