We stayed at the Fairmont Kea Lani for a week shortly after Labor day. They seem to upgrading the hotel rooms and building a new spa. Make sure you request a room away from the construction noise if your going over fall 2013. The service was fantastic and the food at Ko's was out of this world good. The manager of that restaurant noticed that my 8 year old son dropped an Uno card, which he sent to our room with a very funny note to our kid. That was a very smooth move. The pool was great and the beach was perfect as well. I wish they had an outside bar however. The staff were all great! September after school starts is a good time to go.
