Editorial review:

The rooms at The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii are beautiful and the grounds are exquisite. There's a private beach with sea turtles and there's an amazing spa. The food is nothing special, though, and the beach is small according to some. The staff is very friendly and bends over backwards for guests, and the environment is welcoming.

      It' s beautiful, but too expensive...

    • Couple
      7.4

      The facilities were very nice and it was easy to just stay at the hotel and relax. Very much a good destination resort. There was a good "resort" feel about the place and the food was great. The hotel is located pretty central on the Big Islands "Gold Coast" making some travel and exploration around the island pretty easy.

      Only thing we didn't like about the Orchid was the Japanese/Sushi restaraunt. The food was good, but the prices were a bit ridiculous. For a basic, very light dinner without drinks it cost us over $60.

      Beautiful setting, friendly staff.

      They suspended their Saturday night luau, which was disappointing. Food and services were VERY expensive!

      Ambiance

      Things not working E.G. door entry to room; ipod connectivity to tv Reporting the above and them not being fixed properly and in the case of the iPod not even being addressed at all despite having asked

    • 8.2

      The grounds are kept meticulously. Everywhere was swept clean of fallen leaves. Beautiful gardens, water features. Perfect. Food was very good in breakfast, deli and evening restaurant. Nice beach. Snorkelling a little way from the shore in a protected lagoon one could see any number of different fish and a turtle or too. Cabanas for US$55 (or $75 for those located a little further from the hotel and more secluded (although why it costs $20 more for the staff to walk 20-30 yards further I don't know?))

      Queuing for food. If you enter the breakfast area from the gardens (as we did every day) it meant walking through the tables with no clear route to the desk to put your name down. Then wait until your name is called. Weirdly, EVERY time there were tables free but not yet cleared. Often, several buffet trays/plates were empty and required asking staff if there was more - which they promptly fetched. Annoying having to ask. Several times I was overcharged for a full buffet when I'd only had the continental breakfast - which required asking the staff to change. Some breakfast staff were absolute gems: courteous, helpful, chatty without being over-familiar. A few seemed reluctant to even smile. Price: US$80-100 a little high for what I was getting. Even for a Fairmont. Screaming children. Almost every breakfast. I felt as though we were eating in a kindergarten at times. Not the hotel's fault of course, but made me think they should have their own section. (Sound-proofed!) Overall, it seemed as though the breakfast and dinner facilities were too small for the size of hotel. Requiring reservations for the evening. Book MONTHS in advance for Valentines Day dinner. We didn't and were disappointed - and a little surprised. But all the hotels in the area were the same.

    • 9.6

      The staff were amazing.

      The food was terrible at breakfast.

      The rooms were extremely well appointed and the beds were very comfortable! The entire resort was extremely well taken care of and had wonderful amenities included in your price. The pool and beach area were very spacious and the staff were always available. There was complimentary wifi and parking for one vehicle per room.

      the location was perfect and the hotel was very well appointed. We had a wonderful time!

      Very overpriced. Food extremely expensive. Not the best. Staff OK. Location is remote in the middle of deserted area. Not green.
