This hotel clicks all the boxes. The building is huge, spread over a hillside overlooking the beach and ocean. From almost all the rooms the views are perfect, There are a couple of buildings were another wing may interrupt the view, but still not bad. The breakfast's were great with lots of variety, but a little expensive. They have a... More

Attended a conference at this hotel. Our room was beautiful and spacious with nice decor. It's right on the beach and also has a beautiful pool. Several eating outlets (very pricey) and the food was good (not excellent, but good) There's no shuttle service and the hotel is a 20 minute drive from the closest town with shopping or activities....

We're glad your conference brought us your way! Did want to mention that there is a complimentary evening shuttle between our hotel and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel to expand our guest's dinner options...so perhaps next time you visit you can give that a try! Mahalo. More

This hotel was a gem. Location, location, location. It is nestled on the best beach on the big island, Hapuna Beach. The views are to die for. Amazing white sand beach and white clear, warm waters. The hotel itself is beautiful too. Very clean and well maintained. Nice, relaxed staff. They also have a beautiful pool area. This place doesn't... More

Your will find a very pleasant experience waiting for you here. Beautiful grounds, very clean, spacious rooms, and a fantastic pool with ocean access. Everything needed for a wonderful pool-side vacation. Isolated, about 30 miles from Kona, you can drive about 10 miles to Waimea for supermarkets, sundries, and gas. My only complaint is that it is difficult to find... More

Aloha and thank you for your comments. The terraced design of the hotel, which allows for all ocean-facing rooms, can admittedly be a little confusing the first time around. We hope you'll return and find your room much easier to locate on your 2nd stay with us! Mahalo. More

We spent 2 days at the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort. Beautiful open air lobby and dining areas. The room had a great view of the ocean and the stars at night were amazing. Bed was luxurious and bathroom very large. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool and beach was a treat. Beach has a lifeguard and is safe for... More

This hotel is huge! We checked in at night and didn't get a feel for how large of a property it was until the sun came up the next morning. Our room had a partial ocean view, but we could hear the waves at night regardless. There were not many guests, but we probably hit it at the beginning of... More

The Hapuna Prince is a very good value for the room prices. There isn't a better price for the views you get from their ocean front rooms, and their beach is one of the best looking on the island. That said, I echo others who have commented on the relative sparseness of the place (lobby with few people and furniture,... More

This is one of the very best places you can stay in! Great business center, plenty of restaurants, and right on (next to) beach. World-class golf at both Prince Hapuna & Prince Mauna Kea if that's of interest. I use to mention the gym/fitness facilities, but those have been cut back to a fraction of what they once were. I...
