This property is on an absolutely stunning stretch of beach. The property is beautifully landscaped although a bit confusing at first to get around (the layout). Also, don't be too alarmed by the large wild turkeys that roam freely around the property! My dining experience was mixed; the breakfast was quite expensive and didn't meet expectation; and our server was... More

Stayed at hotel four days during the big surf. Totally wiped out the most beautiful beach on the big island. Still had a great time,friendly staff,quiet rooms,groomed gardens,good food. We love this place,going back next week for round two. Hope the surf is not so wild. The beach will come back ??

Thank you for visiting! We're happy you enjoyed your stay albeit during our state's recent bout with extremely high surf. Hapuna Beach is already returning to normal while there will be some cleanup underway by the State for a while to come. We look forward to welcoming you back. Mahalo. More

We were on the big island for Christmas 2014. The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel was fully booked but never felt crowded. We had 2 partial ocean views on the first floor, which was perfect for us. We could walk out our doors from one lanai to the other. They do not have connecting rooms and this actually worked out better.... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights as part of a 2 island anniversary trip. The hotel was beautiful, peaceful and just what we needed to unwind from our busy lives in Chicago. The pool is great for swimming and the beach for playing and walking. The food was surprisingly reasonable, given Hawai'i prices and the pool restaurant was delicious. We... More

Just got back from this beautiful hotel. Sit on your balcony at night & see a million stars sparkling in the sky! Sleep to the sound of the ocean & awaken to a beautiful beach. Relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous sunsets over the water.👍

Nice property away from it all. Beach area is uncrowded and connects to an even larger white sand beach. Good surf at the beach allows for good boogie boarding but not snorkeling. No alcohol is allowed on the beach which is a little bit of a bummer but it also means people act like adults. Umbrellas and beach chairs were... More

When you walk in and see the ocean throughout he wide open lobby it is great. The hotel offers vistas of the ocean from lots of places. We stayed for ten days with a family of four and loved it. The only drawback was the food selection is limited and pricey. The beach and pool are wonderful The staff is... More

We recently stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel for an anniversary get-a-way weekend. It is a completely beautiful spot, overlooking manicured grounds and a perfectly groomed swimming area that steps down right onto the beach. Sleep quality is good (important when you have long outdoor days on the island!), the beds are comfy and so are the pillows. It... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hapuna Beach Prince this January - gorgeous grounds and a fantastic long stretch of beach with powerful waves crashing along it! Great for boogie boarding or surfing at this time of year! The room was lovely - we didn't pay for an ocean view, but got one on the ground floor, with a walk... More
