We recently visited Hawaii and stayed at the 4S in Maui, the Halekulani in Oahu, and this property. Though all three were priced about the same, this was by far the best, and is also one of the best resorts we have been to. First of all, it feels exotic and special. The property is sprawling, private, and lush. It... More

Delicious food; accomodating, helpful, and friendly staff; gorgeous resort; fun golf course; plenty of activities to keep kids occupied. When our ribcraft excursions from resort were cancelled because of weather, the staff helped arrange for another boat out of Kona (where weather is not as much of a factor). When restaurant did not have the wine we drank last year,... More

Beautiful, peaceful, immaculate, comfortable... the dolphins and turtles everywhere were icing on the cake. We've been to several Hawaiian island luxury hotels and this one beats them all if you're into nature, outdoor activities and luxurious accommodations. Those seeking shopping and nightlife should look elsewhere.

My husband and I travel a lot. We came here for our honeymoon in July 2011 and have returned twice since. We've already decided we want to retire at the residences on the property. It is beautiful, serene with great service. All of the restaurants are fantastic. It is worth the splurge. Just go!

We have stayed at several places in Hawaii and this is by far one of the very best. We were here a few years ago for a business trip. This time we are in a nearby condo but came to The Grille for dinner with our niece and her husband. The resort is laid out to take advantage of the... More

Stayed 4 nights with our family. Gorgeous place that knows how it's done! An experience we won't soon forget. Yes, on the expensive side, but very worth it. Stayed in FS properties on Maui and Lanai...the one on the Big Island beats them both!

Now that My wife and I have stayed at The Four seasons Hualalai, every other Hotel we will truly pale by comparison. Yes, it is outrageously expensive. But, if I may, worth every penny. The absolutely, hands-down most amazing, jaw-droppingly beautiful hotel, set in the most idyllic background of the big Island of Hawaii. OK, maybe a little heavy on... More

This is hands down the best beach hotel I’ve ever been to! I spent 6 days here with my family of 5, and we all agree it was one of our best vacations yet, and we plan to return in the near future. I honestly cannot say enough good things about the resort, the staff, the food, and our experience... More

We stayed here for 7 nights. We enjoyed the trip, but I'm not sure we would return. For the value, other tropical resort properties that we've stayed at measure up better. Yes, the service is fantastic and the property is gorgeous. You have everything you could want or need. We just felt like this property is a little cramped, and... More
