I can honestly say that this is truly an awesome resort where every whim is looked after. My husband and I both enjoyed our dining experiences at the grill very close to the ocean, the staff were superb & Jenna the seating hostess was just lovely. Be sure to choose the banana split for dessert it is the best one... More

We stayed 4 days last weekend at FS Hualalai for our 35th wedding anniversary and it was wonderful. Not only is the resort beautiful and spacious, but the aloha spirit was alive and well among their staff and permeated their customer service. All the staff from the gardeners to managers were friendly and courteous, and all had lovely smiles on... More

This four seasons is a standout even when compared to other four seasons resorts. The location is gorgeous, the staff are superb, and the amenities are the best I have ever experienced. It manages to be very family friendly right down to the kids names spelled out in bath sponges in the bath suite on arrival. While at the same... More

Aloha! In my opinion, you pointed out one of the things that makes Four Seasons Resort Hualalai Resort so special. With the widespread layout of our resort, there is a spot for every category guest - people traveling with their family, single travelers, couples with no children, honeymooners, young and old. Even though our occupancies run high, no one feels... More

Wow oh wow, where do I begin? The hotel grounds are lusciously green and picturesque. The rooms are very luxurious from the "I'm sleeping on the cloud bed" to the rain shower. Our room faced the salt water pool so we were able to have our morning coffee out on the balcony. My spouse would spend most days golfing while... More

You get what you pay for at the four seasons. It's expensive but the property is designed like a little village with tons of lush trees surrounding it. The ocean is right there and turtles come right up to the beach everyday to sleep. The breakfast is awesome. They gave us free little snacks in our room a couple of... More

Our 3-member family traveled to the Four Seasons in August 2014, just missing the two hurricanes that hit Hawaii during this time. We had a great time at this resort, although it is very expensive. Breakfast at the only breakfast place on the property was $100 for the 3 of us (including a 9-year old), lunch at the couple of... More

this resort is located in Big Island Hawai and no doubt that Four Seasons has done a fantastic job transforming this "lava" location in the best resort in Hawai and for sure one of the best worldwide. I am sure $$$$$$$ USD have been invested here. For those that are used to FS hotels and resorts this one in Kona... More

We have now stayed here three times (fall 2011,2012, and 2013) and have planned our return trip for November of 2014. Each year we contemplate going somewhere new but end up deciding there really isn't anything else we enjoy more than returning to hualalai. From the moment we arrive at the airport and the staff is waiting to assist with... More

How can you NOT give this 5 stars? It deserves at least 10 in my book. The resort has everything you can possibly imagine, and more. I have stayed in the resort itself and also in a private residence within the resort. I enjoyed the amenities offered by the Four Seasons at both. I would recommend going to the quiet... More

I have been to this property twice and everything about it is perfection. Though the Big Island is not my favorite Hawaiian island, the Four Seasons Resort Haulalai is a show stopper! The pools, the beach, the restaurants, the spa, and of course the staff, are wonderful. When I am stressed out and tightly wound, I still close my eyes... More
