Our family recently traveled to the Big Island from Oahu for a staycation. Everything about the resort was perfect! We booked two garden view rooms and were thrilled to have lanais that connected and overlooked the spa waterfalls. Super easy to get to and from the pool and beach and the snorkeling was amazing! We saw honu every time we snorkeled along with tons of fish-by far the favorite part of our stay. Every staff member was incredibly friendly and helpful, too. Food was great and we wish we could've stayed longer but obligations on Oahu called. We can't wait to come back and visit again!

We enjoyed the lagoon, snorkelling, swimming, pool area, location, room was excellent. Room cleaning services were great and friendly. The one bad side was the food and service at the restaurants. The "sushi" restuarant Luana Lounge was some of the worst sushi we've ever had, served slowly and rudely. Hale Kai (beach hut) table service was slow and rude, and food was bad. I dont think they know what a bahn mi is, and burger was 1cm thick, worse than fast food. Brown's service was AWFUL, foor mediocre and overpriced. Binchotan had the best service and edible food. The Deli was great!! Always good service and food. Front desk at spa was rude and unhelpful.

Poor service

I was surprised by the poor service overall. One night we ordered some burgers through room service with extra mayonnaise and they brought none. It took them over 20 minutes to go back and get us some. While sitting at the pool we had the containers that Fairmont provides for water, asked the server to bring us some ice and he flat out did not. Walked around us for the next 3 hours sercing others so we had to go to the bar by the pool to get our own ice. Our coffee maker in the room would dump out many coffee grinds in our cup. The coffee provided in the restaurant buffet is very light so we had to go to the bar and buy coffee in the morning. I will say the gentleman with one arm that cooks the omelets in the morning does a fantastic job. Of the many resort options to choose from on the big island you can find much better than this place.
