While we were staying at the nearby Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, we stopped by the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and asked to see the newer ocean front rooms in the tower. The staff was very friendly and took us up to view a deluxe ocean front tower room. The hotel turned three original smaller rooms into one large room including a huge luxurious bath (the size of one original room) with an amazing ocean view from the shower.
Telling the staff that we were at Mauna Lani for two weeks, we were encouraged to tour the rest of the property, and we ended our visit with cocktails at the beach bar. My wife and I agreed that we would give Mauna Kea a try in the future. The only negative was a lack of shade trees on the beach in front of the hotel and only one dining choice on property.
Later that night we went to the Seafood Bar & Grill at the harbor and wound up sitting next Wes who turned out to be a parking valet at Mauna Kea. When Wes heard we looked at the hotel, he insisted on buying us a round of drinks! Thanks Wes! I'm sure we'll be seeing you at Mauna Kea.
