It was my first time to the Big Island and I had a hard time deciding where to stay. My boyfriend has been here many times, but usually stays down in Kona. I love doing research and read a lot of reviews. I wanted a nice resort with a great beach and picked Hapuna Beach. I am so glad we... More

We stayed a couple of nights at the Hapuna Prince as a temporary decompress in the middle of nearly three week, multi-island touring trip to Hawaii and it did exactly what we wanted. It's a lovely hotel with really comfy and well appointed rooms. Everything was spotless and it never felt busy or crowded. Ate in the poolside bar each... More

Hapuna Beach Prince will always be a sentimental memory. My bride and I stayed at this wonderful resort for her birthday a couple of years ago. From the time that I booked our trip to checking-out, our needs were very well met. I had informed the management via email that I had just lost my job, it is my wife's... More

This hotel sits on a beautiful beach on the Big Island of Hawaii. We stayed in room 5506, which turned out to be a ground level room facing the ocean even though it was on the fifth floor! Parking in the underground garage seemed inconvenient at first, but you learned the path to take after a couple days & it's... More

Lovely property with great ocean views everywhere. Lots of spaces to get lost. Great beach and large swimming pool and spa, Restaurants were great and staff were very helpful. Gym was about a block away as was the golf course. We enjoyed our stay and will return. Grammy Sharon

Amazing property imo. The lobby took my breath away the first time I saw it, and everything from the perfect beach to the perfect meal issues from a single elevator control panel. It doesn't get much more effortless than this, for vacations where relaxation is the first priority. The HBPH and neighboring property (Mauna Kea Hotel) are owned by the... More

Wonderfully clean and comfy rooms but the ocean view rooms are not spectacular for the price. Hakone's buffet features tasty Japanese dishes, such as butterfish but the sushi is a little Genki Sushi tasting. If you want some good sushi, try the Red Water Cafe in Waimea.

We had a week at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in April 2015. The location of the hotel is fantastic - right on one of the best sandy beaches on the Big Island. The swimming pool was also fantastic so we spent a lot of time going between the pool and the beach. We saw lots of turtles while we... More

Aloha and mahalo for visiting and staying with us. We appreciate your business. In regards to resort fee, you're correct - we do not charge a mandatory fee as the majority of other resorts do but rather give our guests the option to be charged for only they use...OR, purchase our optional, yet economical Splash Pass, which is inclusive of...

This is a beautiful hotel with a great beach and lovely grounds. The room was well-appointed and comfortable. The staff members, with two notable exceptions, were friendly and helpful. That's the good news. The bad news: $15/day to park, $15 /day for WiFI, $22/pp for the cold buffet breakfast, $31/pp if you want the hot buffet, $7.50 for a peanut... More

Aloha and thank you for visiting. We do want to point out that there are free WiFi areas offered in the resort including the main lobby and the Beach Bar / Pool area. Additionally, many guests find the "Splash Pass" a very economical option which includes daily parking, WiFi, coffee, and much more including discounts for golf, spa and more.... More

This was our second stay at the Hapuna Beach Prince and our first time in an oceanfront room. Everything about the Prince is relaxed and unobtrusive. Sure, it's not as glltzy as a Four Seasons, but I prefer an atmosphere that presents the natural beauty of Hawaii front and center. It's hard to beat sitting at the breakfast buffet looking... More
