Turtles! Turtles! Turtles!

Would recommend Thu, Oct 27, 2011
The hotel grounds are gorgeous, the rooms were very spacious, and the staff were all wonderful. The hotel pool was large and nice, but the highlight is definitely the beach area! The hotel beach is a perfect little cove with calm crystal clear waters. The coral wasn't spectacular but the marine life was still teeming and vibrant and made for a great snorkeling site. On top of the many varieties of fish, there are lots of turtles that feed and rest there, it was amazing to see so many up close!

Money saver

Rent your snorkeling gear from Snorkel Bob's in the shopping center down the road! Much better gear selection and price

Great hotel

Terrific beach and grounds, good food. You will need a car to sight see and visit the small towns to the north and east.

Luxurious Relaxation

Would recommend Tue, Oct 18, 2011
This is my second stay at the Fairmont Orchid and it was perfect, again. The accommodations are first-rate, and the vibe is relaxed and professional. The staff is friendly and helpful, from the valets to the concierge to the wait staff in the restaurants and at the pool and the beach. Additional amenities can add up but the room rate is a bargain.

Dining

It was too late for lunch and too early for dinner at Merriman's, a restaurant in Waimea that had gotten great reviews, but behind Merriman's, out of view from the main drag was Pau, which turned out to be the best meal of the trip. The setting is casual and you actually order your food at the counter and a wait person brings it to your table, but the food was fresh and organic and prepared beautifully and there was a respectable wine list. Pau had perhaps the best margharita pizza I've ever eaten.

Honeymoon

Would recommend Mon, Oct 17, 2011
Great Hotel and service. The beach at the hotel is fantastic and had great snorkelling views of fish and turtles. They provided hospitality room for changing and shower on late check out (this was really great) Does not charge for parking wich is really nice. Only complain there is a daily fee for the wireless internet

Outstanding!

Would recommend Thu, Sep 29, 2011
The Fairmont Orchid was wonderful! A friend had been in Kona on business and had stopped at the hotel to check it out. She told us it was everything she had heard it to be, and when we arrived, we found it certainly was. Very peaceful and restful. The grounds are beyond gorgeous. The restaurants are terrific. It was a wonderful vacation!

Attractions

Highly recommend the Hawaii Forest and Trail stargazing tour! They provide the parkas - but make sure you pack socks! It's cold at that elevation!

Luxury in Paradise

Would recommend Thu, Sep 15, 2011
Top class hotel with everything you could want for a luxury holiday in paradise. A car though is essential to access local amenities as well as to explore the delights of Hawaii (The Big Island). The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel grounds are amazing. Don't miss the sea turtles that come ashore on the sea front of the hotel.

Shopping hint

Visit the Kings Shops and Queens Shops about 5 - 10 minutes drive.

Great place to forget about work and destress

Would recommend Tue, Aug 30, 2011
Our family spent a week at the Orchid and everyone had a great time. The Gold Floor was really worth the upcharge. You have a separate private check-in, drinks throughout the day, food morning and evening and your own concierge for the floor. Plus free valet parking and wireless access. Taking all these benefits into account it makes staying on the Gold Floor a great value. We all really enjoyed the Spa Without Walls and having a massage in a private cabana near one of the resorts waterfalls. Was not very impressed by the spa locker room amenities, but the massage itself was excellent. Overall we had a wonderful time and would go back again.

Dining

Cafe Pesto was good food and reasonably priced...for Hawaii.

You never have to leave the resort

Would recommend Mon, Aug 29, 2011
The hotel is beautiful and is one of the few places on the big island with direct beach access. The hotel has a lagoon where you can snorkel, paddle boat, canoe. They rent all the gear at the hotel, so you never have leave the resort. The resort caters to luxury travelers but is also very kid-friendly.
