The Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii
Amazing service with an Idyllic location
From the moment we pulled into the driveway, the service at The Fairmont Orchid was exceptional. We were greeted by bellmen who took the car, handed off our luggage to a porter that assisted us with check-in, and service staff that met every request with a smile. The concierge helped us find tours to see the lava flows, and provided great advice on the best driving routes around the island. At breakfast, the staff remembered our meal preferences, and we didn't even have to ask... simply confirm. At the resort itself, the mood was very relaxed and it never felt crowded by the poolside. Every evening we were able to watch turtles come ashore, and manta rays feeding in the shallows. Sunsets provided an amazing array of colours every single night. The only regret was that our holiday came to an end, and we had to leave!

Great Hotel BUT some distance from the airport
Reviews do not tell you what you need to know when selecting the most appropriate hotel for you. Here is what you need to know. This hotel is great BUT it is a long way from the airport and the cost of a taxi is 80 dollars. So either you need to rent a car OR accept it will cost 80 dollars to get there. An executive shuttle back was a few dollars cheaper. It is a remote hotel but that is an advantage if you want to rest and escape. The hotel was busy when we were there but did not seem crowded. There is lots of room in the grounds. The staff were good and the Concierge in particular was very helpful. The trips we went on were excellent BUT check as some trips need transport so you cannot do these without a car. The food is good in the hotel but some restaurants are not cheap so check out the restaurants by the shops reachable by walking or by the hotel shuttle which is excellent. There is a resort fee but included in the resort fee is free snorkel hire every day. As there is great snorkeling off the beach this is a huge bonus. The little beach is lovely and the sand soft and clean. We have no complaints at all about the hotel at all. We would gladly return although this time we would probably hire a car.

Great hotel - at a price! Eating and drinking within the hotel was expensive, with few alternative options within the neighbourhood.

Just needed a few days' r & r after my wife's Ironman race. The Fairmont fitted the bill.

Typical resort hotel
A relaxing couple of days in a great setting. Partial sea view room was exactly that as was on the ground floor and the view was obscured by the foliage in the garden, not worth the extra cost. Food was OK but preferred the offerings, if not the setting, made at the shopping mall nearby. Snorkelling was fantastic. The $25 daily resort fee charged is a rip off for most folks unless you max out on the list of inclusions. I don't consider open air self parking a privilege.
