Last year we saw some of the changes at at 4S Hualalai -( we attributed them to the sale of 4S to some corporate group Dell I think). But we have returned 3X because this hotel is still the best in Hawaii. We (as opposed to the other reviewer) hated the new plasma tvs. have no idea (well actually we... More

We love this hotel and even though we usually stay in a house in another resort for the first week we always add a few days at this hotel to top off our trip. There have been a few changes since last year however that cause some concern. First of all, they now charge for valet parking - it was... More

Best hotel I've ever been to in terms of service, quality of facilities, etc. Great food. Perfect place for a honeymoon. It was expensive, but worth it. All of the restaurants were very good. For lunch, we enjoyed going to the residents' restaurant further down the beach. We really enjoyed our dinners at all of the restaurants. We made the... More

I had been so excited about going to Hawaii, and particularly about my stay at the Four Seasons Hualalai .... it was heavenly. We started off our vacation in Maui and stayed at the Renaissance Wailea and then headed to Kona on an Island Air inter-island flight (note to all - Island Air operates turboprops while the bigger airlines offer...

This is one of the best resorts to visit. The service is tremendous, the rooms spacious and well decorated and the restaurants are excellent (we highly recommend the breakfast buffet). Sitting pool side is really the best part of this hotel. You make the short walk from your room to the pool where you begin to be pampered. From the... More

I saw this resort on the travel chanel and I thought to myself, "I'd like to plan my next vacation there." So, I did just that, and it was the most wonderful vacation I planned for my family. If you are coming to the Big Island, this is the absolute best resort on the island. The grounds are so beautiful.... More

My wife and I have been to Hawaii every year for the last 10 years. This resort ranks right up there in terms of an overall experience. All staff member we encountered were friendly and courteous, but not over bearing or bothersome. Our room was fantastic. We were able to whale watch from our lanai! House keeping was excellent, as...

Just stayed at the resort for four nights with my family. My final feeling when I was leaving was service was not quite Four Season standard and the property was tired and needed some money spent on it. Let me put down a few key points. Service. Greeting at the airport through to the bell desk and reception was friendly... More

This is the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Ever. We flew into Kona airport. The hotel had sent a doorman to the airport to help us. He pointed us in the direction of baggage claim, and then tagged our bags, and hailed a taxi to take us to the hotel, which was a short drive away. The area is... More
