What a wonderful place!

Battle Ground, Washington

We had the best time! We stayed 5 days here, on the gold level. Hayato, Elizabeth, Keisha, Nik, Luke, Cory, and Devin in valet, all treated us like family. I know their names because of how much they helped us have fun, be comfortable, fed with great food, and, always had our car ready. This Gold level upgrade was by far the best money I've spent in awhile. Fairmont Orchid has a very cool private beach, cove, with part of it protected for the Honu, or sea turtle. When you snorkel out in this cove, you will find these beautiful creatures feeding. The pool was beautiful, the drinks away the pool were great. They have some live performers that are outstanding in the main lounge. When I visit the big island again, We will stay at this property. Thank you all very much. Oh, how could I forget.... there is Mauna Lani golf course that your ocean view room on the gold level will over look..... I was able to play 18 holes on the south course, absolutely phenomenal ocean holes... the Fairmont loaned me some clubs and helped get me a Tee time. This was a once in a lifetime round on a championship course... lava on one side, ocean on the other.. crazy cool. Anyway, you could play 36 different holes right on property, all unique. Just a great vacation.

Amazing food, even better service

Unbelievable food, funny informative service. Our server taught us about the food we were eating, about the land we were walking on, and was very professionally funny. It will be my first stop when I come back to this gorgeous island!
