We have stayed here a few times before and it’s still among my favorite places. Great beach and now the adult swim area. Only complaint is in this area you are subjected to high prices because of where it’s located, away from stores and restaurants

The staff at all the dining areas were excellent- attentive, helpful. The pool area was nice, and it was great that there was an adult only section. It would be great if there were an adult hot tub- it seemed more like a kiddie pool with all the children in it. The person I dealt with at reception was not helpful, but pretty much everyone else we encountered was pleasant, making for an overall good experience.

The overall Mauni Lani area is fabulous! Dining options are limited though in this area. The Fairmont Orchid is starting to feel ‘tired’ and will need some renovating in the near future. The beach and coast in this section of the Kohala coastline is spectacular though!

Lovely grounds and big spacious clean room - room was cleaned daily plus turn down service. Balcony was lovely with a sea and garden view. We tried all the restaurants except Browns and the food was excellent - not much more pricey than less appealing food in the Kona restaurants. Pools and beach were great with fabulous sea view. Nice coastal trail walk. It's an older hotel but didn't seem 'tired' to us. Good value - over swankier 4 Seasons and Auberge - and we visited those too and were still happy with our decision to stay at the Fairmont.

The Resort is stunning. Downfall is how expensive meals are. Not a lot on the menus or options. We were a family of seven and breakfasts were $450 per morning. Also the availability of a night cap - everything is closed at 9:30 pm. The grounds and staff are amazing! Andrew was our beach attendant and he rocked it!
