    Wonderful experience being so hands on with the dolphins. THey are amazing creatures. They are seemingly well taken care of and loved! All the staff are great, knowledgeable and friendly. Extremely Kama'aina friendly program, too.

    We got to see a turtle close up. You can't get really close to them as they are on the endangered species list. But with a zoom lens it's almost as good as being right next to them.

    Gorgeous beach and easy to get down to the water. Great bathrooms and beautiful sunsets. You can go year round and you just can’t beat the view.

    We walked along the Kings Road through the Petroglyphs today for about an hour (plenty of time). The natural lava formations are the most impressive part of this walk as it’s a bit unclear which stone carvings are actually original. It was a fun walk and took lots of photos.

    Although I see some reviewers complaining many stores here are closed ,we very much appreciated having this shopping center just down the street when we stayed at Mauna Lani Point. My daughter and I enjoyed poking around the beachwear shops and grabbed her some flip flops. But the biggest draw was definitely the Foodland. Really solid selection of products, whether you want to pick up prepared foods or ingredients to cook at home, and staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They made every trip to the store A+. And we loved the selection of local products, esp. the chocolate and dried fruit.

    I have been there numerous times, last one November 2019. Vera and her husband are great people! Always fine artwork to look at and purchase! If you miss Hawaii like I do, can't wait until this is over so I can safely hop a flight and return to my favorite place to visit, just get on Vera's email list. You may see a piece of artwork that catches your eye and reminds you of your past vacations. If you do, just buy it!!!!! Ya need to bring the Aloha to your home for awhile!!!!🌈🌞🌸🏵️🌺🌸🌊

    We liked Kings Shops but personally liked Queens Market Place better it had more stores and a better variety. The stores were not very interesting to us but the General Store was 10/10 we loved it! We probably went 5 different times and I would like to give a shoutout to Delson who works at the General Store he was so nice and helped us with whatever we needed. Overall I only go for the General Store I don't really like the other places.

    We have been in this gallery before but not purchased. This last trip we had a great chat with CJ and he gave us an amazing deal because of our very low value Canadian $. The piece arrived quickly and in perfect condition. If you want a beautiful piece of art for your home that will remind you of the island, this is the place to go. Thank you CJ !

    Beautiful sculptures, incredible, friendly staff and a wonderful display of art. Be sure to take it all in. We loved the beautiful turtles, they looked so real. It means a lot to know these are locally made in Hawaii ❤️ Most are made by glass or wood, which are great! Please continue to use these metals. It helps the local economy.

    We were lucky enough to take a guided hike, just before sunset, in this amazing forest, that once was a large ecosystem in Hawaii. We saw many endemic plants, like a wili wili tree in bloom, and learned about the Initiative's hard work to restore this forest back to what it was before contact with Europeans. Invasive exotic species have been removed, native plants have been carefully raised from hand picked seeds and are now small trees grown in amongst the lava rocks. If you want to see the real Hawaii, a taste of what the native Hawaiians once lived amongst, or if you are a plant or endemic species lover, the guided hike to the Waikoloa Dry Forest is a must do! We loved our visit and learned so much! It was very touching to see these rare plants that once covered the hillsides!

    It’s a misnomer to call this a Farmer’s Market when there is just 1 location that actually sells from grown produce and fruits. There are a couple other vendors selling locally produced jellies and honey but other than that it’s just a few local artisans trying to sell their work. It took us all of 10 minutes (if that) to wander through. It’s as if the purpose of this “Farmer’s” Market is to get people to wander into the permanent shops on location. Not really impressed

    Great tour of the island with a knowledgeable guide. Our entire family enjoyed the lava field tour and the waterfalls and especially the new black sand beach. Beautiful Island, Full Day and lots of beauty.

    We are Hawaii residents and wanted to do a whale watching tour before they migrate back to Alaska. Everyone at Ocean Sports has been kind, helpful and professional. The tour was absolutely PERFECT! We kept at least 100 yards away and saw saw much whale activity, that it was nice to see a large pod of dolphins surround the boat while checking us out. There were lots of excellent snacks and drinks and even ETOH at a bar for extra money. The guides and captain were patient and so kind! Can't imagine a better experience! DONT' MISS THIS in whale season.
