This property is beautiful, the service is great and our limited experience with the food was quite good. However, it is a huge sprawling complex and our room was a lengthy and circuitous path from any of the amenities. If our room was more centrally located, I might never have been aware of the issue. I would stay again, but... More

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is pefect for a couple of days of pure relaxation. Huge, quiet rooms with ocean views, right on a picture perfect Hawaiian beach which is not too crowded. But the hotel is very isolated so you are left to their mercy when it comes to food and they charge quite steep for it. The food is... More

This resort and it's neighbour, Mauna Kea resort, both owned by the same Japanese company, are striking cavernous but charmless concrete edifices resembling hospital buildings or (inside) airports, with endless empty corridors scattered with pointless chairs and lined with numbered cell doors. The rooms are cramped (for a married couple, 2 double beds and nowhere to sit) and uncomfortable, have... More

We apologize that you did not care for the dramatic architecture of Hapuna nor the award-winning architecture of Mauna Kea. Many of our guests find both quite striking and comment positively on it. We would also note that unlike all other major resort hotels in the islands, we do not charge a daily resort fee but rather leave that as... More

The hotel has updated the room decor and technology. It maintains the charm and true Hawaii experience. Now a shuttle serves the Mauna Kea hotel as well. Be sure to attend star gazing when available. Rooms vary by location but ocean view is always there. The percentage only changes

We had a large, beautiful room with a view from our balcony over the pool to the ocean. There was a lounge/small table and chairs which was awesome to sit at to enjoy the beach over a cup of coffee in the morning. The room was very large with a small fridge/freezer with bar space as well as a huge... More

An amazing hotel. Paradise! Even the least expensive rooms have great views, awesome balconies and super comfy down pillows and blankets. Can't recommend it enough! Located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, warm water and white sand, and rocks nearby perfect for snorkeling. Staff at the hotel is very friendly and always there to help. Can't...

I'm not exactly sure what made me not love this place. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the housekeeping did a great job of keeping rooms spotless. The hotel, however, seemed very dated. Lighting in common areas was poor and made the place seem cold and isolating. The hotel is a long strip which means all rooms have... More
