I love the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel for several reasons. If you are looking for the slickest, newest, most hip place to stay on the big island don't stay here. If you are looking for a place that says "relax", I think this is a good place for you. This is not the newest place but very very clean and... More

We stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel from May 12 - 14th and were very pleased with our experience. Our only regret is that we weren't able to cancel our reservations for a hotel in Kona in order to extend our stay at the Hapuna Beach by another two days. While we were at the resort it was quite...

Normally, I am not that high on big resorts but this one the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel may be the best we have ever stayed at. Fantastic beach front room listening to the waves break on the beach is guaranteed to relax even the most wound up Type A personality. This property is drop-dead lovely...well cared for grounds and right... More

We came to the Big Island for my daughter's wedding. Everything was just gorgeous, from the setting, to the flowers to the food. Both families stayed for 4-5 nights and had a great time. The beach is great, the snorkeling is wonderful, and the service was incredible!

The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is on the most beautiful beaches on Hawaii Island. Hapuna Beach is an expanse of beautiful white sand and blue waters. To get around to things in the hotel, though, you need to walk quite a bit. Our room was on the opposite side of the hotel grounds from the beach so to swim, we... More

It was my first time to the Big Island and I had a hard time deciding where to stay. My boyfriend has been here many times, but usually stays down in Kona. I love doing research and read a lot of reviews. I wanted a nice resort with a great beach and picked Hapuna Beach. I am so glad we... More

We stayed a couple of nights at the Hapuna Prince as a temporary decompress in the middle of nearly three week, multi-island touring trip to Hawaii and it did exactly what we wanted. It's a lovely hotel with really comfy and well appointed rooms. Everything was spotless and it never felt busy or crowded. Ate in the poolside bar each... More

Hapuna Beach Prince will always be a sentimental memory. My bride and I stayed at this wonderful resort for her birthday a couple of years ago. From the time that I booked our trip to checking-out, our needs were very well met. I had informed the management via email that I had just lost my job, it is my wife's... More

This hotel sits on a beautiful beach on the Big Island of Hawaii. We stayed in room 5506, which turned out to be a ground level room facing the ocean even though it was on the fifth floor! Parking in the underground garage seemed inconvenient at first, but you learned the path to take after a couple days & it's... More

Lovely property with great ocean views everywhere. Lots of spaces to get lost. Great beach and large swimming pool and spa, Restaurants were great and staff were very helpful. Gym was about a block away as was the golf course. We enjoyed our stay and will return. Grammy Sharon
