Let me tell you, this place knows how to make you feel extra special! You could feel the Aloha vibes the moment you arrived at this resort! The staff was extremely friendly and kind. The food was delicious. Brown's Beach House was so delightful...sunset dinner by the beach with a little Hawaiian musician playing. Orchids breakfast buffets are awesome...their macadamia sticky buns were so good. Had the pleasure to savour their fresh honey straight from the beehives they have at the resort. Absolutely going back!

This is about what you would expect from a nice resort hotel - nothing more. It's pretty, but unnaturally laid out. The bar is drab, the beach is man-made, and the landscaping does little to obscure the fact that you're inside a giant concrete U. The facility lacks the splendor that it should have, given that this is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The service is good, the rooms comfortable, and the staff are polite and friendly. I give it three pleasant yawns.

I don't like to gush about a place unless I really, really loved it but that is the case here. The Orchid is an amazing hotel and the property is incredible. For me, it's the very definition of luxury. It's a big place but not overly large like some resorts are these days. The pool is really nice and relaxing, the beach here was a lot of fun, and our room was perfect but that was mainly because we reserved an ocean view room (hey, how often are you in Hawaii!).

There are plenty of food options here and nearby and I think I could easily spend a week here without leaving. Snorkel around at the beach, walk around the area a bit, then relax in a hammock. If there is a downside it's just the price but you get what you pay for right!
