A very nice hotel in an absolutely beautiful location. Stayed in a Deluxe Oceanview room, which had plenty of room for a couch and a desk in addition to the bed and a large bathroom. View of the pool, grounds and ocean was spectacular. The only issue we had was arriving while the local version of ComicCon was underway, so... More

Visited the Mauna Lani Resort for lunch at the Bay Club last week and it was amazing to say the least. The restaurant team and hotel staff were all very friendly and the grounds were so beautiful and well kept. Definitely recommend visiting for anyone thinking of planning a trip to Hawaii, or to local residents that want to have... More

We loved staying here. You get a welcome greeting with a juice and lei as you check-in - a perfect way to check-in to Hawaii, makes you feel so special. The hotel staff is extremely nice! Pros - Beautiful grounds, secluded. - Clean Room with white modern sheets, safe, a fridge, coffee maker and working A/C. - Note, it's not... More

Lovely setting with beautiful fish ponds and wildlife. The snorkeling was lovely right on our beach-I saw eels, turtles and beautiful fish. Plenty of towels at the pools. Our dinners at the Canoe House Restaurant were delicious and the service was excellent. Our room was nice and I especially appreciated the design of the bathroom-two separate sinks so that my...

We stayed at this property for the second half of our time on Hawaii Island and really enjoyed it. Getting the only major negative out of the way first ... folks considering this hotel should be aware that it is somewhat distant from Kona where a lot of the activities are based: we had a hire car and it was...

Can't really put a finger on why I love this hotel so much. It doesn't have the high end features of a Ritz Carlton or a Fairmont, but there is a charm about the Mauna Lani that is just amazing. Carefully crafted without the over the top feeling. The resort feels very well maintained and the staff are extremely nice.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in early September to celebrate my husband's birthday and my family reunion. Overall I love this resort and highly recommend it! Here are major pros and cons: Pros - Clean and comfy room. The bed is very comfortable. The room smells great. The bathroom is huge with two sinks and showers. - Great facility.... More

Lovely large rooms that were quiet at night and lovely porches to have coffee in the morning. Great location for sightseeing. Hotel restaurants are really great. Many options for activities. The staff is really helpful. A really great pool for smaller children. Cabanas on the beach are very comfortable. Easy walk to fitness center. Enough parking available.

This was the first stop of our honeymoon in Hawaii and we really enjoyed our stay. We were originally going for the Fairmont Orchid, but were deterred by the notice of construction at their pool. We found this nearby hotel instead and it seemed to have everything we wanted. I've seen some reviewers comment on the datedness of the rooms,... More

I must admit we were skeptical about coming here due to some of the reviews but we ended our trip sad to leave and happy we stayed at Mauna Lani! After an initial room change due to our room looking over the car park we settled in for 5 nights. The new room looked over Canoe House restaurant and the... More
