“Hau`oli Makahiki Hou Four Seasons Hualalai * * * * *”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Our two week family vacation began with swimming in the "Kings Pond" & then snorkeling just outside our room with 5 turtles... We started each day with the wonderful buffet breakfast, we had the same beach cabana set up every day & we enjoyed our lunches beach side. With our niece & nephews we had fun feeding the sharks too! The kids liked the camp. We had a beautiful private dinner set up on the beach for all of us (7)... On 2 occasions the chef prepared our catch of the day from our fishing trips, it was a real treat! The Luau at the resort was also a great night out with entertainment. We all enjoyed massages that can be done by the cabana. The spa was very nice, we had several treatments & loved the outside massages. Shopping, the clothing store had great things that filled up my suitcase & my husband surprised me with a beautiful ring from the jewelry store... it's one of my favorite pieces. The little market was a great place to pick up a bottle of wine & some snacks for the room. We barely left the resort except to go fishing & swimming with the wild dolphins. We all had a fantastic time that we extended our trip a few days... The concierge took good care of us. No matter how great a place is there are always a few things that can happen. We were happy management took care of things. We look forward to coming back in December and getting the same room again!

Room Tip: We had the best corner room & we loved our outdoor shower!

We recently spent a few days here. Because of our special occasion and availability, they accommodated us in a room category above what I had booked, but that was just the beginning of the outstanding service. Everyone at the Four Seasons Hualalei calls you by name, everyone is friendly, and just everything is perfect.

There are four different pools to choose from, with the adult pools being our clear favourites. It's great that they also offer a family pool and a "snorkel with the fish" pool, which helps to keep noisy children away from the other pools. Basically, there's something for everyone!

The equipment to work out offers a broad variety of machines and weights, and even classes. This was the only place during our vacation where we truly wanted to work out!

It's clearly not a cheap place, but you really get what you pay for here and I'd rather spend big money on two breathtaking nights here than 5 nights anywhere else! And if you want to save money...just don't get the $15 coffee and $10 extra bacon at breakfast, but book one of the packages that includes breakfast for two for only $50/day.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms may have a slightly better view, but the outdoors lava shower makes the downstair...

This resort is meticulous, a true paradise and the staff is the best I have ever encountered.
The food was amazing, and there were a lot of options: fish, steaks, italian, kids, etc...By far cocktails at sunset at the Beach Tree were my favorite part ;) The spa is small but beautiful and the services were great.
Very Pricey, but worth every penny :)

Room Tip: Was there as a couple for my 10th wedding anniversary. We had a room above King's Pond, which wa...

This is the second time I have stayed at the Four Seasons on the Big Island. The property is spectacular and the service sublime. A but pricey but unlike some others on the island, the service, food and amenities live up to the price.

My four year old daughter and I stayed at this resort for nearly a week. There are no words to describe how amazing the place is. Bliss! The property is immaculate and the staff always had a smile on their faces. Pools, beach and food were great as well. I highly recommend breakfast at Pahuia (sp) while drinking a passionfuit mimosa overlooking the beach. All of your troubles will simply melt away. I know mine did! I also recommend their "Surf, Sand and Stars" buffet on Saturday night. Pricey, but well worth it. I'll definitely return soon to the Four Seasons Hualalai. They treated my daughter and I with the utmost care and respect.

Great location-very worth the investment of a fantastic stay-cation in Hawaii. A little busy with kids, but adult only areas very nice touch...just wish some of the jacuzzies on the ocean front were open all night long...you know what I mean..the skies full of stars each night. Everyone so friendly and welcoming...it's what old Hawaii must have been back in the day! People really loved their jobs and let you know that living and working in paradise, is paradise!

Room Tip: Any room on property is great...who's in a room anyways...it's on the beach....and it's...

Spectacular. Just wonderful. My wife and I enjoyed everything that this hotel provided, and will absolutely return one day. The food was delicious, the room was breathtaking, the pool was magnificent. We were thrilled. Well done!
