Great experience. Had a great family vacation visiting Hawaii for the first time! Since we were going to be at the beach, I knew I wanted to take some family pictures at the beautiful beach. Lucky for us, the resort already had a photography studio that could take our pictures! Our photographer, Loryn Restivo, did a great job of capturing the early morning beauty of the resort and taking some absolutely beautiful shots of our family and the natural surroundings. She took plenty of shots and we had a great amount of pictures to sort through to see which ones we liked best (which was so hard since all of them were so stunning!). Overall, this was a great experience and if we ever find ourselves back, would definitely be using them for our photography needs!

Hotel's Favorite
An amazing hotel that will give you the best vacation experience for a family friendly Hawaiian vacation! Traveled with my husband,two young kids and two young adults and all were equally content. The pool is very kid friendly as is the beach area. Bike riding, and beach rentals were an added plus.

If your finances allow it, this hotel very much worth the time and money. We have stayed here multiple times, both with our kids and alone. This time was no exception. Rooms were modern, staff still friendly, beach top notch. We will always have such wonderful memories of this place.

The Fairmont Orchid is a very nice property located in a lush manicured tropical setting. The guest reception is understated and could be just a bit more welcoming and engaged--but nothing to really pick on here. The rooms are exceptionally well maintained, clean, SPACIOUS, well appointed, quiet and comfortable--everything anyone could want. There are a few things that let the property down. It is definitely coming of age where some serious refurbishing of the public areas and grounds are needed. The very, very hot unshaded guest parking lot is unkempt and really lets the property down in terms of first impressions. The hotel was very full when we visited--most evident in the common areas--but that didn't intrude and diminish the tranquility of our room--so good job not letting a full house bleed over and spoil the room experience. Programs and services could use upgrades and more engagement with guests. Overall--a very nice place to be, but needing some work to really keep it's reputation and expectations about the experience intact.

This was our 5th stay at this property (over 4 years). We come back because everything here is first rate -- excellent property, excellent amenities, excellent location, excellent beach, excellent staff. Could not ask for a better stay and we've felt this way every time. We are ready to book our next trip here the minute we get on the plane for the sad flight home.
