We joined you for breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased with our meal. Chris was our server and from start to finish, our experience was filled with delicious food, killer scenery, and lots of Aloha.

From check in to check out, the 5 days stay here was the best experience I have ever had at a resort. The breakfast buffet was included with our corporate event, and it was amazing, I mean "amazing." I have never seen a buffet with such great tasting varieties! We want to send a shout out to exemplary employees at buffet restaurant - Irwin was the nicest person at the omelette station. He always was happy and smiley. Your maui moco with the beef short ribs was no ka oi! Next, waitresses Sabrina and Auntie Trudy, were always so nice and accommodating. You can tell they loved their jobs. They exuded ALOHA each and every day. At the pool, bruddah Narcie was so kind and helpful. Again, he showed so much ALOHA each day and made the pool experience super. I had a massage by NOELLE, who has worked at the Fairmont for 13 years, I believe she said. Super talented masseuse and she raved about how much she loved working at the Fairmont. We enjoyed the kind bellmen, the ability to use bicycles free of charge to go to the shops, and although pricey, the pool side lunch food was outstanding. Two sisters - a full time Maui resident and a sister from the mainland - had a 6 star experience and it will forever go down in the books as one of our all time favorite vacations. Read less

My husband and I visited to celebrate my 50th birthday and the hotel did t disappoint. Quiet surroundings, amazing and friendly staff, beautiful grounds. Plenty to do in the property but if you wanted to just relax and read a book, that’s great too. We were here before the planned renovations and can’t wait to return after they’re complete.

Great facilities and rooms. Breakfast buffet was great and offered multiple options for food. Great location to beach with setups for different ages/groups. Was easy to get in and out of facilities. There were shopping and restaurants close to hotel. The 2 restaurants that we ate on property were outstanding.

Beautiful grounds, great service and wonderful staff. We ate at Nicks Fisherman and had pool service every day. Also eat breakfast buffet every day. All those restaurant experience were very enjoyable. We stayed at one of the 2 Bedroom villas. Great location on the property. Room issues were the biggest concerns. Had AC issues first day which were fixed in a couple of hours. Had insects invade kitchen and bathrooms 3rd Day. Understand we’re in Hawaii and by the beach so we get that this can happen. Hotel Maintenance came and sprayed the areas which helped. Still, always wonder If they are around or in your personal stuff. Curtains on patio doors were dirty with what I’m assuming “ketchup” stains where you would gray to open. I just tried to clean it myself. Again hotel responded to to all of the issues in a fairly reasonable time. When checking out Mgmt. asked how our experience was and I told them of the issues we had. The feeling I got from the hotel manager manager on duty was not so much apologetic or show of empathy, rather a feeling like he thought we were looking for something. I wasn’t looking for a comp or free room. Truly, I was just letting him know of our experience. It really put me off how he approached me and his response. Maybe he was having a bad day or I was not the first guest to complain that morning, but it put me off going back to the Fairmont. Sad, as this was our go to hotel and have stayed here several times over the years. We’re going to try the Marriott or Andaz next time we go back in Oct. as an alternative to the Fairmont. Read less
