Beautiful location, wonderful staff, great food at the resort. Housekeeping less than desirable in room. We were disappointed that people were allowed to save chairs all day around the pool when they weren't even there. Besides this-great place.

Beautiful location

Would recommend Tue, Jul 15, 2014
Really beautiful location. Perfect orientation for sunsets - they are right there in front of you. The rooms are mostly at angles to the ocean though - even most of the ocean view room. The cove is an amazing place for kids. We saw turtles in the water and sleeping on shore every day. Nice pool but there is only one large one - there is no kids specific pool. Staff was really nice. Food at the restaurants we ate at was ok. There are some other good options near by. Would definitely stay there again in the future

What a fun, relaxing, and romantic experience! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was amazing. Only draw back was the restaurants and food is very expensive. Grocery store near by to use for smaller quick meals.

Stay in Paradise!

Would recommend Mon, Jun 2, 2014
We stayed at the Fairmont Orchid for 3 nights during our visit to the Big Island of Hawaii and we had a great experience! The hotel is one of the nicest 4 star hotels that I've ever seen (and definitely seems to be reaching for the 5th star#. The stay was for the end of our trip #2 nights in Hilo before to see the Volcano Park# and we were looking to do some relaxing and a little more exploring. The room we got was "partial ocean view" which was pretty accurate. However, the view of the perfectly manicured property and pool was still beautiful and relaxing. The property was quiet and really what you would expect from a relaxing luxury resort. The pool was probably the nicest I have seen and huge but tranquil. There are trees and streams and waterfalls all over the property. The beach is small but perfect for a dip and the snorkeling was amazing! We had it include with our resort fee and even if it was not I would recommend paying for it. We saw tons of brightly colored large fish of all varieties and sea turtles! The other equipment rentals are expensive unless you are there long enough to make the $75 per week worth it. The room was perfect with small terrace. The bathroom was exquisite with 2 showers #perfect for a couple to have their own space!# and 2 sinks. The hotel rate was definitely worth the hotel stay. The only thing that was expensive was food on the resort in the restaurants. Tip - buy breakfast from the snack bar by the pool instead of the restaurant. Better Tip - order the Lobster Fried Rice from the poolside restaurant for lunch or dinner - never had better - was worth the $35! This is a bit further from the resorts in Kona town #30 min?# but not a bad location and sites are a quick drive away on the island. #There is no nightlife at the hotel.) I would definitely stay here again for some relaxation!!
