this hotel had the coldest pool of any hawaiian or mexican resort i have ever visited!

although i really enjoyed the location, staff, room quality, and cleanliness of this hotel, the size and shape of the swimming pool was a major consideration for me. i love to swim in warm water pools, and this pool was not even heated! i went in it once, wearing a wet suit, which was no fun at all. i noticed that there were very few adults that would go in, and, if so, only for short periods of time. very disappointing! the last day i was there i actually walked over to the mauna kea beach hotel and went swimming (sans wetsuit) in a very comfortably heated pool. i would not return to the fairmount orchid unless the pool was heated.
