We spent two weeks at the resort in Sept 2021 and had an outstanding time! From the welcoming ceremony to the goodbye, everyone went above and beyond to serve our needs. The hotel is located in a beautiful resort with great beach and pools. The staff was unbelievably helpful with any request we had and everyone knew our names and preferences everywhere we went. Special thanks to the great concierge team, which was world class and to Mellisa and her staff which made sure we won’t forget this vacation. We highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking to spend time at paradise 🙂 Best, Bick family

I’ve stayed at this resort several times in the past. Every previous trip was excellent. We recently booked the hotel but I was very concerned that things may have changed given a number of negative reviews. After spending a few days here we can assure you that the resort is nothing short of outstanding. The service is perfect, the renovated rooms are amazing and the grounds are possibly the best in the world. I have no idea what those negative reviews were about. We are season Travelers and used to the best and this resort exceeds all expectations. Please ignore those reviews we wish We did and We would’ve stayed longer

Only halfway through a 10-day stay but felt compelled to write about experience. Some of the negative reviews I read before I came almost had me cancel (didn’t want to pay the cost of 5stars and not feel the service and the value). I am glad I didn’t. The property is amazing, the rooms gorgeous and recently renovated, there is plenty of room to spread out and we felt safe and comfortable with the masking guidelines in effect. The service is still top notch - from the fast responses to questions on the app, to bellman, to the towel/water providers (France at the beach tree exudes Aloha), the waitstaff (always around, rarely a wait), the women in the boutiques, Arlen who comes around to clean sunglasses or offer a popcicle, Carolina at the beach house, Michael at the King Pond who dug out the last snorkel for a friend who wanted to swim with the fish before she departed, cara in reservations who helped me move to a room that was a better fit for my stay. Amazing. Despite labor shortages, likely new staff who had to quickly learn hualalai’s ways, despite worries of their own about safety and Covid and all the rest. Book and enjoy. Mahalo to the Hualalai team and the needed respite provided in paradise.

The hotel, the experience and overall stay was top notch. The service and staff could were completely attentive, responsive and beyond pleasant. The only downside is that while the hotel is technically on the water, only - maybe - 75 yards are essentially usable because the rest is lava and/or rocky (which urchins appear to like). The property has several pool options, all beautiful, so its not like we suffered but I'd have preferred more, and more conveniently accessible, beach options.

We had been wanting to come back here ever since we left last time. There is something magical about this place. We stayed for a week in a suite at the Palm Grove (adult) pool. First off the rooms are incredible. After a complete renovation they are stunning. Each room has a large patio to relax during the day. Nearly every room has an ocean view. The golf course was also updated to be more friendly to the average golfer. We did not play this visit but the course always looks amazing! The pools on property are awesome. The Palm Grove pool is adults only and has a swim up bar. Great views of the ocean from the infinity end. The main pool is perhaps the most stunning setting on the island. Wonderful pool with free cabanas and lots of loungers. Please do arrive early as chairs get booked up. Then there is a kids pool. Finally the newest, and perhaps most incredible pool, at Kings Pond. This was just finished this year and is a wonderful infinity pool overlooking both the pond ( a massive ocean water aquarium that you can swim or snorkel in) and the ocean. Service at all the pools were very good. You can also swim in a protected area with beach. Always turtles swimming around which is great. Plenty of options to lounge at the extensive beach as well. All with food and drink service. Lots of options to do nothing all day! We ate lunch at the various pools. Each pool has a specific menu but you can order from other pools if you'd like. The fish sandwich at the Kings Pond pool takes the cake. The fish tacos at the main pool were great. The hamburger just ok. Lobster roll was excellent. We had room service a few times as well. Easy to order from the iPad in the room and eating on the balcony was wonderful. The Grille at the golf course was a wonderful steak focused meal. Nice wine list as well. Perhaps our favorite meal was at the Residents Beach house. Wonderful setting on the beach, great service, and tasty options. We also did massages at the spa and they were incredible. We get regular massages back home but these were significantly better. The spa overall is wonderful. One nice perk they don't advertise is the free washer and dryers located in each building. Pods and dryer sheets too. The stay was not without its issues. The food was excellent at nearly all of the restaurants and pools. Ulu however remains a mystery. We had an excellent breakfast there but then 2 dinners where most people did not like their entrees. This is the signature restaurant of the property and the prices are very high. Perhaps they are going through a transition. Housekeeping was also a bit of a letdown, but after speaking with them they were back on track. Overall a wonderful stay and we can not wait to return again.
