The Fairmont is fantastic with a very large property where privacy is possible. The beach front is small but well maintained. There are 2 dinner spots Nick's and Ko. The service was impeccable, the staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. All the rooms are suites which are well maintained and clean. My room was a "mountain view" which overlooked the parking lot but that was never an issue. My only comment would be about Nick's Restaurant, we'd been recommend by a lot of people to go there. I'm pretty sure the server was drunk asking us the same questions every time he came to the table. The food was average compare to it's sister restaurant Ko. Regardless it was one dinner and everything else was superb. I'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Oceanside rooms have a fantastic view but the Mountainside is just fine. All rooms are suites and ha...

The rooms are suites that are incredibly comfortable, spacious, and very very clean.

As for the property it is much nicer then the Four Seaons which we found to be very tight on space or the Grand Weilia which was an enormous complex conference style resort.

This hotel the right size resort to enjoy and relax.

I must confess the gift shop is overpriced as are some of the restaurants but I was once reminded if you have to ask how much it costs perhaps you shouldn't stay. The lunch at $18 for a wrap and chips is a bust.

That said if its affordable and your comparing notes check out the room set up at the other two properties on the same beach, and the numerous pool options, I am sure you will agree this Fairmont is a perfect 10.

Wow, wow, wow. This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Absolutely stunning (and VERY clean) grounds. Great beach with small, fun waves. They also have snorkel rental gear, which I would recommend taking advantage of because they have one of the most spectacular snorkel spots right on their beach. Since they were undergoing construction, they provided us with free umbrellas (one per suite) for the beach, free snorkel gear, and free boogie boards. I never once noticed the construction, so that was never a problem. The rooms are kept very tidy by the staff.
The location of the resort is perfect. It's about 5-10 minute drive into town and it is very quiet a night. No cars or boats can be heard!
We have 3 teenagers in our family and we all enjoyed our 5 night stay. There are some kiddos, but we barely noticed them because they have their own pool! They also have an adult pool.
I really can't say enough good things about this hotel. All the staff was extremely welcoming, upbeat, and informative.

My husband and I stayed during the hotel's renovation. At first, we were concerned because we thought there would be noise and areas would be blocked off. However, construction was done during a reasonable hour and only one restaurant was unavailable.

The suite was BEAUITIFUL. I recommend getting the ocean-view rooms; we had mountain-view and requested ocean-view, but they were all sold out. Large, spacious bathroom (the largest I've ever seen!), complimentary robes provided, beautiful king bed and 2 tv's. What really impressed me was that they had turn-down services twice daily to ensure cleanliness and comfort.

The service was fantastic and everyone was sooooo nice! A bell boy provided us with towels to keep us warm when we went on the sunrise mountain tour. When I walked in while the maid service employees were cleaning our room, she asked me to put my key in the doorway to prove that the room was mine (I like that because it showed they cared about security issues). There was even free laundry for guests - sometimes generous guests would even leave detergent behind for other guests to use. When my husband got skin-burned, they provided us with packets of aloe vera.

A couple of cons. The beach was always crowded and it was quite hard to get beach chairs. The downside of this room was that the couch smelled like stinky socks...

Other than that, it was a honeymoon dream come true!
