Hapuna is a nice get away. I was in Hawaii alone on a hippie adventure. But after four days I opted out (shame on me) for valet parking, a pedicure and TV. Nice place. My room was oceanfront and extremely far from the lobby or any restaurants. The service was better than average. Basically resort food, nothing special. Pool bar... More

Our family stayed at The Hapuna Prince while my husband attended a 5 day residential conference. Our room was amazing (7th floor) wonderful views of Hapuna Beach. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and professional. We dined at all the restaurants and found them to be excellent value for money. Cafe Hapuna was great for early morning... More

We didn't want to leave. The rate was too good to be true. The hotel bright and airy. The large, comfortable, clean room opened right onto the ocean with expansive views of the white sand beach and huge whale shaped pool. We fell asleep to waves crashing and woke every morning to the sounds of surf and tropical birds. The... More

Stayed here for a conference and had low expectations for this resort, I've traveled to Hawaii over 30 times and was skeptical that a approx. $200/night resort in Hawaii would be enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised and I believe this resort to be an excellent value for anyone traveling to Hawaii on a budget! PROS: 1. Very quiet - we... More

Stayed here for a girls' trip- rooms were being updated and will be lovely. Love that there are inner and outer doors which can be locked but allow island cross breezes. Best beach on the Island. Wicked hot and dry wind off the mountain made for a deserted beach but the snorkeling was fantastic. Great beach for swimming back and... More

The hotel had a lovely setting and our room was very nice. However, they advertise 5 restaurants and there may only be one open at a particular meal. They are not close to shopping centers. We also thought paying $15 for self-park was a little over the top.

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
