From our arrival up to our impending departure tomorrow, this resort provided us with a perfect base to enjoy the big island for the first time. Other travelers recommendations to be in tower 3 were appreciated, it's a stunning view. Our concierge, Crosby took wonderful care of us, helping us to sift and sort through a myriad of options for... More

Beautiful and luxurious rooms with beach views and cool ocean breezes. Large pool and steps to one of the best beaches on the Big Island. Whale watching every morning and evenings. Gorgeous sunsets. 5 star staff and amenities. Highly recommend this hotel!

Now for the better. 1st there is new carpet in my room, phones, tv, linens are all new. Balcony furniture also.

This is the second time we stayed at this resort and it was just as good as the first if not better. The staff is pretty much the same. Everyone is friendly and out going. Accommodations are great and you have many different rooms and suites to choose from. It's over 30 miles from the Kona Airport but well worth... More

We absolutely LOVED Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. When we first walked into the lobby on arrival both my and my husband's jaws dropped. What an amazing view. All the staff were really friendly and we thought the hotel was beautiful. We had a partial ocean view - it certainly was - half of the view was of palm trees and... More

Pros -Located on the hapuna beach -polite staff Cons -Ocean beach view rooms don't really have ocean view. More than half of it is blocked by trees. When i bought this up, the staff politely offered a "higher" priced room which had worse view. What a joke! -Poor room quality - old carpet and broken AC which made the room... More

Thank you for your comments. We do want to note that other hotels charge guests a mandatory daily resort fee, which we do not. Rather, we offer our optional Splash Package that includes WiFi, parking and much more. But for guests that choose not to use those services or pay-as-they-go, it is optional, which most guests feel works best for... More

We stayed here for a week in September 2014 and really enjoyed it. From the moment you walk into the vast open lobby directly from the driveway entrance to the minute you open your room door, you know this is going to be a great experience. You are away from it all, you are actually on the beach, it is... More

We spent four nights at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in a beautiful, spacious ocean view room on the 9th floor of building 5. The bed was comfortable and the huge bathroom had two sinks and plenty of space for toiletries. The staff, from the front desk, dining, housekeeping to valet parking, were all helpful, accommodating and friendly. This hotel... More

I would give this Prince 4 1/2 stars if possible, because the things I didn't like were minor. I started my 12 day 25th anniversary trip at the Hapuna Prince, arriving a couple of days before my husband. I was glad the hotel was such a quiet peaceful retreat. The view from the lobby is wonderful, so first impressions are... More
