Amazing hotel, amazing staff, amazing ambiance. Always a first choice whenever I am in Kona. The staff treats you like family and the food is awesome. Dining experience at its best. Ample parking and easy to use entrance. The security of the hotel makes you feel safe and comfortable. I have been staying at the Hapuna for 15 years and...

I stayed at the Hilton a year ago, and while it was newer and had more glitz, the HBPH is better. Hapuna Beach is fabulous: the water is warm and shallow, the waves aren't too high, and the beach wasn't crowded. It's a great morning/evening walk from end to end, and wonderful for sunbathing during the day. We upgraded from...

We have stayed at most hotels in the Big Island, and The Hapuna Prince is our favorite. There is the infinite pool overlooking the ocean, tranquility, great service, no crowds, etc. The grounds have hammocks for your enjoyment, and if you stay in the presidential suite as we did (well worth the upgrade), these hammocks, ocean view, and pool, are...

The Hapuna Prince was amazing! The location and views were the best on the island! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating! Especially the concierge Lauren. She is by far, probably the best concierge I have ever dealt with! She is friendly, patient, and knowledgable. She knows so much about the island, and exactly what there is to do! I...

Excellent location and amazing service! We've stayed at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel 17 years ago and came again with our children who liked it as much as we. Were very happy to see the same beautiful beach and grounds, swimming turtles, enjoyed the service. Great stay!

Stayed here two nights. Absolutely beautiful resort and beach! The beds were comfy and staff members were very nice. The only downside is that the hotel is somewhat isolated. If you are looking for a luxury resort this is a great choice!

To those with no children, or just traveling without them, this place is perfect. It's a large property, and not very many little ones around. Let's face it, sometimes it's better to not bring them. This hotel is occupied mostly by elderly visitors who enjoy golfing. The beach views are incredible and the pool is extensive. I am enjoying this...

The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel has a beautiful setting. Most impressive are the landscaping and the view/architecture of the main building/lobby. The beach is beautiful and clean, and the adjacent reef is full of great marine life for snorkeling. Housekeeping staff was absolutely wonderful, hard-working and courteous. Front desk staff, however, seemed constantly irritated and distracted. However, the price is...

We typically stay at Mauna Kea, but this time we decided to stay at Hapuna Beach Resort and could not have made a better choice. The two resorts are very similar - restaurants, beach, but the difference for us was the pool and the size of the rooms. Hapuna is spread out and you do get a lot of walking...

The Hapuna Hotel has an amazing beach - one of the best on the Big Island. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and have large bathrooms. The price point is good compared to other hotels with a lesser beach. Only criticism: the carpet in our room was worn and stained. Overall - the room was clean - just the carpet needed...
