My husband and I stayed at Four Seasons on the Big Island in October for vacation. We have stayed at Four Seasons Maui several times and loved it, but even the staff raved about the property on the Big Island.
We had reserved a room overlooking the golf course. When we checked in, they told us they were upgrading us to a room near the kids pool. We went and saw the room, and in our minds it was a worse location than what we had reserved. They weren't thrilled that we didn't like the so-called upgrade, but gave us the room we requested.
No doubt the property is beautiful. It definately is. But the beaches aren't swimmable since its so rocky and the weather on the Big Island is not as nice as on Maui.
Also, the service at Four Seasons Maui is better. The bartender at the Steak restaurant had a little bit of attitude. The food at the Beach House was great, and we had a server there who was terrific, but one server we had at the Beach House also had a bit of an attitude. And we ate at the Beach House virtually every night , except 1 when we went to the Steak House. Also at the Beach House, when we sat in the bar, it seemed to take an unusually long period of time before they'd bus the tables - ie when we sat down, and a previous party had just left.
But generally great overall.
