My wife and I and two sons (6 and 9) have stayed here and the sister resort Hapuna Beach. It is the nicest place to stay on the big Island. It has a beautiful perfect beach with fabulous snorkeling, great tennis/workout facilities and the golf looked great (we don't golf). The food is also quite good (although I recommend making a reservation well in advance for manta as it was difficult to secure a reservation there) and if that does not work the place down on the beach was excellent. Mauna Kea is the "old money" place to stay versus the Four Seasons which I would argue is where the "new money" Hollywood types stay (don't get me wrong the 4 seasons is nice). I would say my only issue was they did not have suites so for larger families you have to get adjoining rooms. Consider staying at the sister resort Hapuna Beach which is also on a fantastic beach and they have reasonable priced very large one-bedroom suites. While at Hapuna we spent all of our resort time at Mauna Kea. Highly recommended!
