Expensive ... yet it is worth it! Wow! What a great hotel! I was simply amazed everyday at how good all of the food is, how wonderful the Staff is and how beautiful the area is. You can swim with the Manta Reys at night,...More

Imagine walking into a hotel lobby that's open to the ocean breezes, then stepping up to a front desk that welcomes you in low key Hawaiian style. I know of only two venues on the Big Island that fit that description. The Mauna Kea is...More

This is a beautiful property, with fabulous views and what is likely the best beach in Hawaii. But in terms of service and clientele, it has become much less than it was in the past. Manta Restaurant service last night was quite poor: 1/2 hour...More

I was there recently and "spent" 50,000 points/day. If you have any status with Marriott, they will upgrade you (as they did us) and possibly include the breakfast buffet on the house. Worth every point.

I didn’t know there was a kids club. I have seen so many facebook fans club for different hotels. You can join the one for that hotel and keep contact with either members or fans who can give you more detail info.
