    The room had a great balcony. Highly recommended for a wedding celebration.

    Couldn't find any faults at all.

    The reception of the staff. The little attentions when the hotel learned that we were on our honeymoon. The superb private beach. The variety of services offered.

    Nothing.

    The beach with its protected pool is very pleasant and the possibility of snorkeling just in front of the hotel to observe the turtles is an exceptional experience! The rooms are pleasant, the bedding very comfortable and the bathroom is spacious.

    The wifi in the room is random and the shower products have not been replenished for the entire stay (5 nights) which is not worthy of a 5-star hotel.

    Top-of-the-range hotel of high quality. We really appreciated it. Certainly the best on the island.

    the restaurants close very early for dinner

    Really beautiful hotel. The small beach is very practical and shelters a turtle colony. Several restaurant choices. The room was also very pleasant. A few restaurants and a foodland 2 minutes away.

    Very good

    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.

    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.
