We stayed here for one night whilst on the big island, after a day of snorkeling and sight seeing we were ready for a bite to eat and few drinks before heading off to Hilo early the following day. The first thing that struck us when we arrived at the hotel was the atmosphere (or lack of it), it just... More

My husband and I were married at this hotel 14 years ago. We have been back just about every year since then. It is comforting to see the same friendly servers in the Ocean Terrace restaurant that we first met 14 years ago....and having them " roll out the red carpet" and take care of us and our kids. The...

The resort was amazing and the beach is divine and classic Hawaiian. It is quite possibly the perfect place to relax and soak in the Aloha. My only complaint is how hard it is to get good transportation on the Big Island. Amay taxi at 808 345 4949 finally saved the day.

Aloha and mahalo for staying with us during your visit to Hawaii, the Big Island. As a mostly rural island, public transporation is not as available as in larger metro areas, as you have come to find out. We're happy that you found a solution to your need and delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Please return soon! More

We are a group of 4 currently staying at the Hapuna Beach and I must say it really is a beautiful resort! The only drawback is the huge convention that are staying here at the same time. This group are appearing to have the upper hand when it comes to attention and service from the staff. They take over at... More

I have always enjoyed Hapuna Beach, and didn't even know there was a resort at the far end of the public area! What a wonderful experience. The resort, staff, room and restaurant were all fantastic. The pool and surrounding grounds are noteworthy, too. Highly recommended, I would love to return!

I have stayed at the Hapuna Prince 3 separate times, most recently in April, 2013 and I will be there again in May, 2014. Overall, this is a magnificent resort on one of the finest beaches in the world at a reasonable price. I cannot believe what some of the reviewers are posting. Ignore any one complaining about price of... More

This hotel is easy to get to from the Kona airport. The location is great for getting to most of the sites on the big island. The beach is really lovely and swim-able. It's not too rocky and the sand is soft. The staff at the hotel are lovely and accommodating but they are also very disorganized. The concierge was... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and really enjoyed our stay, though it's probably well above our price range for any other occasion. Our room was enormous, the bathroom even more so, and I loved the terrace and it's view. We actually asked for (and promptly got) a second lounge chair so we could enjoy the view together.... More
