Hualalai is a beautiful resort. However, given the price (out room last week was $1,300 per night) it is not delivering what it should. The positives: Nice staff, very good restaurants, great breakfast buffet. The not so positives: It is just dated - what seemed like luxury 15 years ago is now common in a lot of homes - the... More

This was our second visit to Hualalai and we loved it just as much as the first time. We stayed by the Seashell pool, which is the best one for the kids. Although the upper floor is nice for the ocean view, we prefer the lower level to access the garden and pool more easily. The staff are wonderful and... More

Possibly the best resort we have ever stayed. The staff are extraordinary, nothing is too hard. Everything possible is thought of. The snorkelling from the canoe club is easy and safe! The rooms are generous with separate change room. We could not fault anything, worth the extra cost.

Yes it is expensive but you get beautiful ocean views, complimentary water, coffee and laundry facility. The resort has much to offer with great activities. The staff were superior and made every effort to accommodate us. I wanted to take a cooking class but they didn't offer anything the weeks was there so they made arrangements with a chef for...

Went here for a pharmaceutical incentive trip with my company. This place is top notch. Service is excellent. They literally think of everything. The only downside is they don't really have a beach. There's a small swim area, but it's filled with lava rock. Ask for a first floor room so you can experience the outdoor shower. Used it all... More

I just came home from a week stay in Hawaii. The first part of my trip was in Maui and on Friday I had the pleasure of checking into the Four Seasons Resort in Kailua- Kona. From the moment my boyfriend and I pulled onto the property until the moment we left we experienced nothing but first class service. We... More

My Husband and I had the privilage of staying at the Four Seasons Hualalai in May 2015 for 8 nights to celebrate our Babymoon. After much debate in anticipation of the trip, we splurged for the Four Seasons based on reviews and the views from the property. We'd never been to the Big Island together, so this resort ticked all... More

Staff was extremely friendly and grounds were beautiful. Amenities were nice. Concierge lady up front was ok but sort of snobbish. We asked about taxi rides and she called for one. You'd think she would have mentioned that it would cost $100 roundtrip and better to get a rental car. Maybe she gets a cut. Problem was the food. Average... More
