Better than any tropical and cruise get away. The stay was excellent in every way. Food was better than I thought & slept like a baby! I felt like I was sleeping on the cloud. Thank you Fairmont! My favorite vacation spot!

Over priced everything! Portobello Resturaunt was over price and under delivered. Didn’t eat 1/4 of what was sent out bill was $259 for a few drinks and 4 plates! Rooms and staff were great but every little thing was an extra charge! Was great views and the surrounding restaurant were more down to earth!

I booked the train wreck excursion for my two sons (aged 4.5 and 6) and I. We had a fantastic time! Our guide, Tim, was eager to share his vast knowledge about the area and I appreciated how he engaged with everyone on the tour. My kids fed off of his enthusiasm and were talking about the hike for the rest of the day. It was the highlight of their trip! Read less

Booked one of the daily complimentary tours offered - Train wreck hike. Rikki was a great guide and gave us lots of information about the area and history. The train wreck was really unusual, the graffiti on the cars changing regularly. How they got the cars through the trees was mind boggling. We then walked back through the forest along the river, which was really beautiful. Although it’s bear season, we weren’t fortunate enough to see one, despite Rikki’s best efforts taking us to various places where they might be found. A really good afternoon with a great guide, thanks Rikki. Read less

Very nice room. Upgraded to the Gold floor, due to occupancy issues. Very nice shower, loved the essential oil pods. Really loved having own Nespresso coffee maker in the room. Pool was super nice. All the staff was helpful.
