Wife and I live on Windward Big Island. For our anniversary, we like to go over to the leeward side for a short holiday. The Hapuna Prince is located on the Kohala Coast, where it's almost always sunny. The Prince's beach is perfect mix of sun, sugary sand, gentle breezes, and everything a main lander dreams about. Accommodations are deluxe.... More

Our stay at Hapuna Beach was fantastic. We stayed 6 nights, but we could have easily stayed longer. Despite the fact that we were there on a travelzoo voucher the staff upgraded us for our honeymoon, which was greatly appreciated. Our room was huge with a great lanai. Although it was a bit of a trek from the parking garage,... More

Being able to walk from our room down to the swimming pool and then out to one of the most beautiful beaches was really a treat! Being on Hapuna beach is the reason to stay at this hotel. We swam a few times every day.The water was easy to get into and it was never crowded. Lots of chairs and... More

If you are looking for a getaway, in a beautiful location, with amenities to suit any style, this is your place. Off the beaten path, you can find peace and serenity, if that's what you're looking for. If you are in need of easy access to beach make sure you request that when booking. The layout of the buildings can... More

The best and most relaxing of our Big Island stops. Short walk to well-kept pool and splendid beach good for playing in waves and snorkeling. Our best oceanfront dinner during this trip was at Coast Grille--flawlessly prepared, great view, quiet feel. Walked over to Manta at the Mauna Kea for a pricier, not quite as nice dinner, but seeing the... More

My wife and I stayed her for 3 nights for 30th marriage anniversary. The ocean view from 9th floor was just excellent specially at sunrise and sunset. We were so relaxed and everything was more than I expected. I am sure I will stay here next time I come to Kona.again. .

We had a 2 night stay at the Hapuna Prince after hitting the VNP on the eastern side of the Big Island. The hope is that we would relax for the last 2 days of our vacation after wearing ourselves out in Hilo. We were not disappointed! The lobby has a spectacular view. Room was big with very comfortable beds.... More

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel hasn't changed much since I first vacationed on our honeymoon in 1997. This is good and bad. The rooms are almost the same with the exception of the televisions and food. The bedding has changed but the decor is nearly identical from when I arrived. This said, the location, while nearly 35 minutes from Kilua-Kona, is... More

First time in Hawaii Island for a business conference and was pleasantly surprised. Property is tucked away from the other hotels and has its own quiet beach. Hotel was spread out and tranquil.
