Excellent hotel experience, average beach
Posted Dec 11, 2016
As with all our experiences at Fairmont hotels in Hawaii, this was great. Staff is excellent, grounds and rooms are excellent, restaurants are excellent. The only average thing about this location is the beach. It's a small quiet lagoon that is mostly isolated from the ocean so it has no waves, and limited swimming/snorkeling, and no surfing or boarding without venturing quite a ways past the jagged lava rocks and out into the larger bay...which is all surrounded by unforgiving lava rocks. There are other great beaches a short drive away, but if you're an ocean play person this isn't your ideal location.
