I would give this hotel 6 stars if I could, for Extra Credit. We have been there 9 days in August, which is a long enough time to get a real idea of the hotel. I agree with all the positive comments I have read here, and will try to add a few details about our own stay. First, the... More

This hotel has a lot going for it. It's located on a very nice beach, beautiful views everywhere, nice large rooms with many thoughtful extras (for example, has an iphone 4/iphone 5/microUSB charging cord built into the phone). The staff were all very helpful and the rooms immaculate. We requested 2 ocean front rooms and by being on the ground... More

A big part of the Big Island is a beautiful volcanic wasteland. Nestled on the northwest shore is a string of resorts, many of which I visited, but I have to say the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort was by far the best looking - and the most isolated. It is not located in the cluster that lies just south along... More

I can honestly say that for me, our stay at Hapuna Beach Hotel was the best vacation experience I have ever encountered. From the moment we arrived, our stay was relaxing and just what I was looking for to distress and escape our city life. We snorkeled nearly every morning and took some fabulous excursions to see the Volcanoes and... More

The Prince is located on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches (Hapuna Beach) on the Big Island. Check in was quick, and there was even a complimentary drink as we waited. We had an ocean view room and the views were breathtaking. If you are going to stay at the Prince, get a room with an ocean view.... More

Beautiful and unique property. Was offered a drink at the front desk while I checked in. Really pretty view of the sunset from the pool chairs overlooking the ocean. Really friendly staff. A little confusing and long walk finding the way to the front desk from the parking garage.

My Husband & I, along with my in-laws and my parents, stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel August 5 – 8th, 2014. This was a last minute trip as we were staying in the Kopoho area on the Hilo side the week of Tropical Storm Iselle. Originally we were only going to stay at the hotel for two nights,... More

Our family of 4 (2 kids aged 5 &7) stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June - beginning of July. The hotel was not very crowded and we got upgraded to an ocean front view. We loved the room. Every morning I would take my coffee out on the deck and sit and watch the ocean. Lovely!... More

At the pool me and my step sister were accused of not staying at this hotel when we were. The man "Ed" said that my step sister could not possibly be a guest because she had dark skin. He said Im probably a guest since I have very pale skin. He kept grilling us that we must've snuck in for... More

Coming from the eastside of the island to getaway from the stress following hurricane Iselle, we were excited to spend our weekend at this beautiful hotel. As a kamaʻāina, or local, my family and I came here often while growing up for various functions and of course to have mini staycations on the sunnier side of the island :) The... More
