A gorgeous resort with great facilities and food, and super-friendly staff. Expensive but worth it. Would return tomorrow if I could. Kids loved snorkelling in the Kings pool and I liked lying by the main pool with regular treats (such as alcopops) being brought around! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were chatty in a very... More

Amazing. Cant really say much more. This resort offers something for everything with its pre-designated pools and activity areas. Food, service, staff, friendliness and the gym etc are all amazing. The porice is certainly up there but it is well worth it. If you have children the best rooms we found were the ones that look out to the kids... More

Greetings from Hualalai! The first word of your review is a wonderful compliment ... "amazing." We are fortunate in that the unique design of Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in five separate crescents with five distinct pool areas allows us to offer our guests a specialized experience. The Sea Shell crescent where you and your family stayed is great for families... More

We spent 5 days here in February 2014 after 5 days in Waikaloa (my daughters had to do the DolphinQuest thing, which was cool, but the Hilton was pathetic in comparison). Wish we had spent the entire 10 days here! My daughters (6 and 8) felt like Princesses, primarily because of all the attention to detail and to them. They... More

We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a week at this wonderful resort. Its room prices are higher than most of the resorts on the Big Island. The big question I had in my mind was would it be worth it. The answer is a resounding yes! We were there for a week and never felt the need to... More

Although we were not fans of Kona or the big Island, the Four Seasons Hualalai was amazing and we should have just stayed there and never left the resort. Our amazing room had it's own Lanai which was lit nightly with torches. We could literally climb the lava rocks down from our lanai and dive into a natural fish aquarium... More

I paid about a $1200 a night for 7 nights based on the reviews on trip advisor. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about. The GOOD: I was impressed with the service, the staff ask for your room number and then address you by name whenever they are waiting on you at that location. Did not feel... More

Greetings from Hualalai! We are most grateful that you took the time to share your observations following your recent visit to our resort. There are quite a few activities to enjoy at Hualalai and many of them are complimentary.

we took 4 days to get away and decompress and all of our expectations were met. Top 4 Seasons service and graciousness, plus a level of intimacy afforded by its small size of only about 250 rooms- all 2 story bungalos. We never left the grounds. Hotel breakfast buffet was about the best we've ever had, but for other meals... More

We were there for our first visit and honeymoon. We had heard a tremendous amount about the hotel and it met the expectations and hype. The service was impressive. Our room was at the King Pond area, which I highly recommend to honeymooners. There was a bottle of sparkling wine and Hawaiian cookies upon our arrival. Though the hotel was... More

Surprised my wife with a trip to the Four Seasons (we are avid Four Seasons fans...or, she is...). This trip exceeded MY wildest expectations. Such a beautiful property and amazing staff. Kudos to everyone from reception to food and beverage. Great job, Four Seasons, you've earned raving fans.

This hotel was by far the nicest place I've ever stayed. We ended our honeymoon here and it was well worth the splurge. From the moment we walked arrived the service was phenomenal. The staff is on top of every little detail. The hotel tried to make our honeymoon extra special with a complimentary room upgrade. The pools and beach... More
