The Fairmont Orchid for us (family with two kids 6 and 9) was perfect. We were never out of things to do. Our room on the 3rd floor was perfect no issues. The resort itsself is beautiful and well kept. Ping Pong at the pool is fun BUT hot. The food was OK but not great, for a good night away from the resort try to get to Tommy Bahamas restaurant at the mall near the resort we went twice as it was the best food we had all week. The Island was cloudy for most of our stay, however NOT over the Fairmont as it was always sunny and hot. We found the price to eat and drink on the resort a little high, however everywhere you go on the Island seems expensive. For us the Bay on the resort is where we played the most, snorkeling and paddle boarding. We did the UmaUma Zipline adventure and I would highly recommend this adventure its perfect for families with kids. Try to get to Hapuna state park, its about 7 minutes down hwy 19 and its a blast the waves are great bring a body board you will play all day.
We will be back that's for sure, our kids loved it. See you next year Fairmont Orchid.
