Yes, it may be slightly more costly; but the resort and the service is worth every penny. The staff is extremely well informed, professional and very attentive to your needs. Sometimes, it seems like they even anticipate your wants. The grounds are beautiful, from the main lobby, to the rooms, the pools, restaurants and the beachwalk along the lava strewn... More

What more could you ask for? It starts with the design of this property. It is spread out along the beach and each building of rooms and suits is only two stories. With seven pools as well, you are never too far from a pool or the beach. It's a result of their flawless property design. The hotel was full... More

This resort offers everything in one location. You won't find a better Big Island experience anywhere else. It's family friendly; the restaurants are great, and the overall service is excellent. Great pool for kids also.

We loved this property. The King's Pond is great, loved all the pools, the spa is phenomenal, the food is good and the scenery is stunning. We also loved the ability to do our own laundry. The only downside is the price. I have been to 15+ FS and happily pay for all of them but I felt it was... More

Spa, Golf, Intimate Dinners, Room Service, Beach Chairs ... all were fantastic! We stayed overnight for our 29th Wedding Anniversary and had a great time at the resort. Worth every penny! It may seem pricey, but go ahead and book it. You won't be sorry.

This resort (I refuse to call it a hotel) is fantastic. The rooms are exquisite, the food is awesome and the service is outstanding. It was difficult to leave and the only reason that I did was to go back to work hard enough to come back here in the near future. The staff spared no expense and was extremely... More
