Stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel for a week as a part of a conference. Our first experience was that the entrance to the hotel was not on the beach side of the highway. (Even our Google app got it wrong.) You drive through a gate before you go under the highway to the actual resort, which is indeed... More

My family of 4 (2 teenagers) just returned from a week at Hupana Beach Prince. It was a fantastic experience for all of us. Hapuna beach is rightfully regarded as one of the world's most beautiful. And the snorkeling directly in front of the hotel is spectacular - we saw large sea turtles and an amazing array of tropical fish... More

We stayed for over 2 weeks and had an absolutely fantastic experience. So many updates since last year....Ocean Terrace with all new furniture....Beach Bar with extended hours to enable evening meals....Hapuna Cafe really improved.....new mattresses and pillows and towels in the guest rooms.

We were welcomed at check in with a cool towel and POG juice. The lobby view is just stunning! We had booked a premium room, so we were on the same floor as the lobby. That allowed us a fantastic view, as well. The lower floors have less of a view, due to the shrubbery and the ocean front building.... More

We stay at resorts all over the world and I was worried this vacation might be a disappointment based a sprinkle of iffy reviews. I can't confirm what others have found fault with but our experience was 7-star! Ron greeted us at the front desk for checkin and was warm and friendly. The first impression is always the most important.... More

The Good: The property is absolutely amazing. From the moment you walk into the lobby your jaw will drop at the view and layout of the hotel. The grounds are generally well kept, the rooms are clean and comfortable. (disclaimer: I'm not real picky about mattresses, pillows, towels, etc, etc, but my wife is and she didn't complain so there... More

Your first impression is a beautiful, open-air lobby with a spectacular ocean view. The rooms are very nice with huge bathrooms containing double sinks, a good-sized tub and a shower. The commode is in a separate room, but a short louvered door is a little weird and doesn't afford much privacy. A large balcony with a chaise and a small... More

So glad my brother chose this hotel for my recent trip home to Hawaii. I decided to treat ourselves with a hotel stay away from where the rest of the family was staying at a family residence. All the staff were so friendly, even when I wasn't feeling well, the housekeepers wanted to bring me hot tea. The Ocean Terrace... More

Beautiful location. Room was spacious with large balcony overlooking beach and lagoon. The bathroom was large with shower and separate bath. The restaurants and special evening buffets were delicious. Plus, they had outdoor dining with views of the ocean. There was only one disappointment. The rooms are supposed to be smoke free but unfortunately, we could smell smoke on occasion... More
