Beautiful Property, Wonderful Stay, Beware of Kids
Overall a very nice stay. Soooo many kids though - we stayed in early April, so perhaps we hit spring break for many schools, but the amount of kids really did detract from the relaxing nature of the property. I loved that parking was included in the resort fee. Property is beautiful and well-manicured, and the beach/snorkeling was great. We paid extra for the 'ocean view' - it was not worth it. Very small view of ocean and not worth the extra money. The property itself is so beautiful that courtyard views would be just as good and less expensive. The spa services are very, very expensive - we didn't even bother to use it. Buffet breakfast was great and worth the money. Check-in staff was aware we were there for a special occasion, but didn't offer us anything extra. Perhaps the Fairmont brand does not do extras, and it wasn't a big deal, but something a little extra special would have been nice and consistent with our similar-tiered hotels. The Fairmont has an 'app' system, where you can text questions anytime - I thought that was a great feature and found it very useful. Overall I would recommend the hotel if you don't mind kids, and would probably stay here again during a non-Spring Break month.

A piece of Paradise
The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Wonderful beach with great snorkeling for beginners. Turtles come up in the evenings to rest. We are impressed by their environmental efforts. Staff is friendly and helpful. The minute you drive up staff is ready to open your door. We would like more Hawaiian music.

We only stayed one night and did not get to enjoy all the amenities offered. We are impressed with the design, the surrounding, the beach... The beds are super comfortable. It is expensive, though. We wished that we had time to enjoy more.

Beautiful Resort on The Kohala Coast
The property is lovely but it is a Fairmont Resort, so you'd expect that. It could have been anywhere in the world-- there was nothing uniquely "Hawaiian" about this property, other than the guy who blows the conch shell at night lighting the torches at sunset. That said, the staff were nice and the food staff were incredibly solicitous and accommodating. We notified them ahead of time that we are vegan and they reached out to us each day, asking about meals on property. Chef Chuck and Chef Matthew get high marks for setting a high bar in customer service. The concierge was very helpful with arranging activities and was able to do so with short notice. Much appreciated. There is an option for self-parking, which was very nice. Many high end resorts force a valet fee on you; The Fairmont Orchid does not. One thing we didn't think to look into (first and last time we do this) is to see if there are any adult-only areas around the pool/beach. There are NOT. While we recognize that this could have been much worse, it was still more than we wanted. There were many parents who were too accustomed to hearing their children shriek and whine, not recognizing that many of us are not used to that, nor did we pay top dollar to be on vacation with them as they ignore their bratty kids. Overall we had a very nice time. That said, not sure we'd stay there again unless there were a compelling reason (i.e., meeting, etc...) We'd prefer less kids/family & more "Hawaiian" feel.
