The beach overcomes all the shortcomings. Large sand-bottom beach with good snorkeling to the north leaving off the beach. The rooms are large with good bedding. I agree it is mildly dated but the beach and view make up for it. The other commonly-stated complaint is early closure of dining areas, and what is there is relatively expensive with no... More

This was my first time in Hawaii. I stayed at the Hapuna Prince Hotel because the conference I attended was there. It was a great hotel! I had a great view of the ocean. The room was a little dated, but the view made up for it. The staff was super friendly. Everyone made every effort to make my stay... More

We had an ocean front room. It was large for a hotel room. The bathtub is separate from the shower and is plenty spacious. It has two sinks in the bathroom making getting ready a lot easier. The lanai is large. Large enough for two people to do yoga. The bed is RIDICULOUSLY comfortable. Someone else described the hotel as... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and were so happy with our stay. We had a beachfront view, which was awesome. Our room was very quiet; this side of the island is mercifully free from noisy nighttime creatures, and even when someone was in the room next door the only thing we heard was the door opening or...

This hotel has many wonderful aspects that make staying here a breeze. The views of the ocean from each room is amazing. The beach access is beyond beautiful. It is hard to say anything negative about paradise. The pool is large and you never feel as though you are on top of another family. The staff is always helpful and... More

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is a tremendous property. My husband and I stayed here in September for two nights before spending another 2 weeks in Kona. We had a bit of a view. The room was huge, but we felt like we traveled back in time since it was a bit dated. We felt removed from the Lobby area since... More

Enjoyed our stay in a very spacious and clean ocean front suite with a beautiful view. Sat down at the pool area a couple of times in the evening and listened to hawaiian music/singing. The entertainment was great but they needed more wait staff, always had to wait a long time for service. Even though there is a beautiful view,... More

Aloha and thank you for your comments. We have found that our guests do not participate in late evening activities and prefer to enjoy the views and quiet ambiance. We will begin offering a shuttle to the Kings' and Queens Shops very soon however for those that may be seeking "more to do." Mahalo. More
