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.

Fairmont Orchid Hotel provides 540 rooms with a spectacular view of the garden. Opened in 1990, the deluxe hotel attracts visitors with its original architecture.

Fairmont Orchid Hotel is set steps away from the beautiful white-sand beach. There are golf courses, bars and restaurants in the area.

      Little details. The hotel needs to repaint more frequently. The door to the housekeeping area near our room looked like a tenament door. The lighting in the room was too white and unattractive. They need dimmers.

    • Single

      The rooms, the service, the location... Very nice

      Very quiet... No fun at night! Food could be much better given the price and reputation of the hotel.

      Nice garden

      Room with oceanview was promised, booked and paid for, but it was 80 % golf course, mountain view and far away, with 90 degree turn, the ocean. Water activites are very limited, only a tiny lagoon for swimming, the coral riffs in front are dangerous, not interesting for snorchelling. The hotel is overpriced. Each extra has to be paid extra, for example snorchel equipment 15 us $ (not per day, per hour!).

    • Couple

      Staff at the front desk aren't as friendly as the other staff. The bathroom doors need to be re-painted. The (fake) tree by the spa is very dirty and need to be washed or replaced.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      The rooms were comfortable and clean; the internet access was excellent. The teenage girls used the spa and liked it very much. Hotel is in Excellent location on the big island too--pool area is fine and spacious. Beach is small but safe, and snorkeling is very good right off the beach. Excellent restaurants in the area. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Finally, the breakfast buffet is expensive but terrific.

      Beach is OK (good for tiny tots), but is much better for adults or couples at Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani, and Hapuna resorts/hotels. Buffet was somewhat overpriced.

      We were booked via our travel agent to stay at the Sheraton hotel for our honeymoon but were 200% dissapointed on all levels with this hotel - shabby, dated, dirty looking area's, they are in the middle of a refurbishment, service is really poor and staff look like they dont want to be there and dont really care if you are there either...def not the 4 star luxury Sheraton experience! Anyway so we decided to leave and booked the Fairmont, they met and exceeded all our expectations from the beginning to the end....The hotel, the grounds and room were so beautiful, romantic, luxurious, clean and private. The food and choice of menu was great. The pool and secluded beach are great. The service is great. Thank goodness for them to save the day, would def stay here again. Thanks Fairmont!

      An amazing hotel. Our room was upgraded to a suite (we were very fortunate) and the upgraded space was wonderful.
