“We Came to See the Volcano and Ended up Looking at Houses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Staff at Courtyard/ Marriott King Kamehameha Hotel where we stayed told us that Hualalai was very near. We have gone to see Kialuea, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea so we figured, we should see Hualalai.
The houses were nice ( and expensive) and the plants and flowers along the way were gorgeous. We ended up driving around for a while to see the nice neighborhood. We enjoyed seeing this area because we had the chance to see where the locals lived.

“If you're a nature lover, don't miss it while you're in Hawaii”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We got there almost at sunset, so our visit was brief, but we still had a good experience. We felt warm rock heated by underground lava; walked the lava tube; saw a rare kalij (sp?) pheasant walking right along the road; looked into a beautiful, mist-filled fern gulch; and saw the latest open steam vent and a rainbow all at once. I wish we had had more time to explore. We went on a fixed- wing flight over the lava lake with Island Hoppers the next day and it completed the experience!
