The Hapuna Beach Prince is a good, not great, hotel. The rooms have been renovated, but the decor that they picked make the rooms look tired. The first impression from the wood door that needs a good coat of finish doesn't help. The oceanfront rooms are about 100 yards from the ocean. The room overlooks the rocky shoreline, but you...

We stayed here for a medical conference, and thought it was absolutely beautiful. Perfect beach and pool, we even swam with a sea turtle on the beach. The staff here were all lovely, always happy and smiling, the way you dream hotel staff should be everywhere. The room was clean and grounds impeccably landscaped. Every request (pillows, luggage cart etc)... More

We stayed here on the last leg of our Hawaiian family vacation. (Got a great nightly rate booked from Hotels.com). This is one of the best hotels that we have stayed in. The room was very spacious, pretty decent view given that we did not want to pay extra for oceanfront, comfortable bends, very nice balcony. If you are travelling... More

My Mom and I visited Hawaii for her birthday last year. I read a lot of reviews before planing our trip. The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is absolutely beautiful and lived up to all of its great reviews. I almost don't want anybody else to know how great this place is! We had a room overlooking the ocean and the... More

We stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel for a week in April and had a wonderful stay. We had stayed at the Wakaloa Marriott on a couple of previous trips to the Big Island and had often gone to Hapuna Beach - so this trip we decided to stay at one the hotels on this lovely beach.

Excellent service, beautiful beach and ocean views and pool. The food was average. The beach/pool service people were excellent and very friendly. The hotel was not clear in terms of presenting daytime activities; we didn't even know they had any until the end of our stay....

Aloha and thank you for visiting! We do list all activities in our weekly in-room newsletter but perhaps you did not see it? We apologize for that. We are happy you enjoyed your stay however. One note; ALL rooms at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel are ocean facing so nearly every room has some degree of ocean views, of course some... More

The hotel is located on one of the nicest beaches on the Big Island. We stayed in a nearby condo which came with guest privileges at this hotel and the nearby Mauna Kea Beach resort. The beach is very picturesque and Turtle cove at one end of the property is great for spotting turtles. We saw four one day snorkeling... More

Very nice hotel. It never felt crowded or overrun. Beach was absolutely tops for my teen girls. Good waves but not super rough. Pool was beautifully set with plenty of beach chairs. Breakfast buffet was superb. Definitely try the waffles and the bread pudding.

The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is a wonderful hotel. The staff was all friendly and professional. The common spaces are all stunning and the beach is great. Because of some recent rough waters, the beach is now significantly smaller than in the professional photos online. It is, however, still lovely. The morning brunch was a disappointment. Our room (3102) was... More

stayed here for a week, and it was pure heaven. the beds were wonderful, the service and hotel staff was exceptional, the pool was perfect, and the entire facility was heavenly, quiet and amazing. my only negative was that the menu/food options were limited. not many options for non-fish/sushi eaters.
