Wonderful hotel. Spacious, clean room. Comfortable bedding. Large lanai with lounge chair and table. The pool was clean, beautiful, and warm. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas around the pool, on the lawn, and out on the beach--no matter what you were looking for, it was available. Prices at the restaurant/bar by the pool seemed high, but the food was very good and the sunset view while we ate our dinner was perfect.
Fairmont Orchid lived up to my expectations. Our room was ready upon arrival and the property was comfortable and beautiful. Really enjoyed stopping by the turtle habitat to watch the turtles resting on the beach. There was a nearby departure for whale watching, scuba diving and other water sports.
Beware if you are traveling on your own - this is not a hotel. I booked using some of my Expedia points as it looked like a suite style accommodation on a resort and golf course. I had one night before joining my wife at another location. This is a full on townhouse way too big for one person. And the bad news is you have to pay an additional $95 cleaning fee! Expedia does inform you on the site, but it's not obvious and I missed it. I would never have stayed here if I knew before and won't stay again.

The location is stunning and we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were quiet but the facilities were a little frayed around the edges. . I thought the dining options were limited, but it is easy to buy food locally and eat on the lanai. The cats in the restaurants and on the counters were annoying.
This was my 9th time stays in the big island.
I stayed at Mauna Lani Point last September and this time.
I believe this condo is the best in Hawaii.
It was so different from staying at a hotel.
The room is very big and clean.
Luxury resorts, sprawling golf courses, and white sands line the Kohala Coast – Waikoloa. Hawaii’s sunniest coast is a must-go for beachgoers. It is also known as the cradle to King Kamehameha, Hawaii’s greatest king. His influence can be seen at the nearby Pu’ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, where visitors can see the temple of war he built before unifying the Hawaiian Islands.
