We booked a week stay at the Fairmont after a long wait from COVID to get married. We were impressed from the time we entered the property. The views of the ocean as soon as you walked in were amazing. Our room was updated, clean, comfortable, and had great views of the ocean and pool. Sunsets were amazing to watch from the balcony. I know the staff were dealing with a surge of travelers but they did not show it. I was thoroughly impressed with the high level of customer service and white glove treatment from the bellman, front desk, room service, cleaning staff, and all others we encountered. This trip was worth every bit of what we paid and the memories we experienced at this resort will last a lifetime. We will definitely be visiting this resort again. Mahalo! Read less

While busy, it was not as bad as I expected and hotel was working very hard to make it as enjoyable as possible. This is a great hotel for families with tons of food options, quick room service and several local lessons/events each day to teach about Hawaiian culture. Kids club was still closed so we weren't able to experience that but overall, we were very happy with the experience at a large, busy hotel during the height of the travel season. Lots of food options, a good market and a lovely spa as well. As a mom with two kids, I appreciated the complimentary washer/dryer on our floor. Staff was so lovely and helpful. Read less

In February 2021 I made a reservation at the Fairmont Kea Lani for an upcoming stay in October 2021. At the time, rates for Hawaii were very affordable and I was thrilled to book rooms for myself, my sister, and my parents. I received an email confirmation for all three rooms including the rate. Fast-forward to three weeks ago, and I receive an email saying they had made a mistake with my reservation and the price is now over $300 more than the room we had booked. I am dumbfounded. Yes, I realize the prices in October are now far higher than they were in February, but how can they not honor a confirmed rate when they admit it was their error? So disappointed in the Fairmont's greed. I am putting two stars because I have been to this hotel previously and it is gorgeous. I am just warning other people to beware of the bait and switch with room prices. Heartbroken :( Read less

We stayed at the Kea Lani in 2016… we had a awesome stay then as well as now! The staff, the level of service and warmth, is what really makes this place so special. The property is amazing and the rooms are set up well for families: the bedroom is separate from the “living area” which is great for early risers and/or late nighters without disturbing others. The views on the deluxe ocean view are worth the addition cost. This property has beach access and chair/umbrella service. The pool areas are well laid out with excellent food and beverage service. Dining at Ko is a real treat! The breakfast buffet (COVID protocols-again the staff does excellent here) is amazing and the staff at The Market (for coffee and grab and go) are so warm and professional. The courtesy car is really a nice way to get around locally without a rental car or ride share. Read less

We held a family reunion with a party of 15. We booked 5 rooms during 7/4/2021 - 7/12/21. There were bugs in the room, we got raw or cold food. When asked to speak to management they either did not respond or did not follow up in a timely manner.

We held a family reunion with a party of 15. We booked 5 rooms during 7/4/2021 - 7/12/21. There were bugs in the room, we got raw or cold food. When asked to speak to management they either did not respond or did not follow up in a timely manner. Our pool cabanas were booked and confirmed months before arrival and yet for two of the seven days they double booked our cabanas and told us someone else reserved them, even though we got an email confirmation on our booking. When ordering food at the pool or bar the wait time was over 1 hour and several times they did not get the food order correct. We reported the issues yet management failed to respond. I have stayed at other Fairmont hotels and had good experiences but unfortunately this hotel - Fairmont Kea Lani does not have the quality or service that I expected. As a result I would not recommend this hotel to my family or friends. Read less
