“Beautiful, relaxing and memorable stay. Our best family holiday.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had an excellent family foliday. Certainly our most exciting, memorable and favourite.

We would love to come back to stay at this resort. It is very expensive but for a top of the top resort this is expected. We definitely had an awesome time though.

Hopefully we can come to visit again in the future should we be fotunate enough. This is one place we would take our kids to again.

Thank you for our beautiful family holiday!!

Room Tip: Nearby to the family pool area if you have kids would suit

All I can say that this is THE best resort I have ever stayed in! This was our second time back and it truly did not disappoint. Didn't think it could have been any better than our last stay five years ago, but it was. A must at least once in a lifetime experience. We stayed in room #903 only steps from the ocean. We went to bed and woke up to listening to the waves and the ocean just outside our patio. Definitely get the lava rock out door shower! For such a luxurious resort, there is not pretense or stuffiness. (Read my review of the St. Regis Princeville to know what I mean.) A special shout out to Jacquie and our travel agent, Nancy Herron, of Journey's to Hawaii, for making this all possible! Mahalo!!

Great views. Wonderful room and view. Loved the romantic sunset dinners near the beach. The pools were great to swim in and the hot tubs a great way to end the day. Food was amazing. The only draw back was the $16.00 cocktails. Great quick restaurant for morinings and I loved the snow cones.

We were there in Nov/Dec 2012 as a couple (without the kids) and it was the best experience we have had in a resort ever! Impressive service, in front of the beach (not a 5-star one but quite decent for some time on the sand), great SPA with nice options/packages, best sunset view ever, super relaxing environment. Everything was 100%, room service, restaurants, cleanliness, pools... Ahh, the pools... Gourgeous, not mentioning King's Pond, an "aquarium" with several fish species. Finally, it is close to Kona Airport and the concierge is very very helpful and pacient if you need help to get activities out of the resort, such as helicopter tours, hiking, diving etc. WOW!

Went here on our honeymoon and could not have imagined a better experience. The staff went out of their way to congratulate us and sent us champagne and chocolate. The hotel is gorgeous and super relaxing. It was 100% full but does not feel like you are on top of people at the beach or pool. We will be back!

We celebrated our 25th wedding annniversary at this resort. We were a little concerned as there was a PGA tournament at the resort while we were there. Nothing to fear. The resort was quiet and peaceful. We didn't even know it was going on other than the fact that one of the restaurants was closed/reserved for our stay. The service was great. I am gluten intolerant. The menu had many gluten free options and they would modify the dish to accomodate me. They had gluten free bread, scones, buns etc. They even made me a special gluten free happy anniversary dessert. Spa was excellent.

Room Tip: Loved the ocean view near the Kings Pond.
