Giant Rooms that have everything you want. Make sure you read reviews and look at the hotel property to see where is best for your needs? (by the Family pool, adult pool, etc) Restaurants are great, they do close early and there can be a wait for breakfast! ($$$) You are far away from other resorts, etc...so you need a rental. Not a great beach, but drive to the better snorkel locations on the island. Very happy staff.....Hopefully they can get back to business soon on the Islands! 3 or 4 pools

I stayed here in October 2019 for a wedding and loved the property. There are many pools for all of the different travelers staying there. I personally spent more time at the swim up bar pool with friends attending the wedding and it was a great time. Kings pond is also great to see marine life up close. The breakfast included with amex fhr is top notch at this hotel. The gym is very nice and they have several pelotons available for use.

Great week at the 4 Seasons, room overlooked ocean and the Kings Pond ... swam in it everyday. The ultimate getaway from the Seattle grey ... played the resort golf course and three days of tennis clinics with some of the best pros.

Really do not see how anyone can give this resort anything less than 5 stars. Have stayed at Four Seasons all over the world and this far exceeds the level of service and amenities of any of them. Have visited all of the Hawaiian islands and the location of this resort and the available activities on and off the property is the best of any of the Hawaiian Islands. Restaurants have a great variety of food, service is impeccable, breakfast buffet is superb. The pools and beach areas are gorgeous, never crowded. Yes it is not a true sandy beach for swimming, but you can see sea turtles right on the beach and breaching whales and Spinner dolphins just offshore. And the protected area is fun to swim in. Snorkeling in Kings Pond is a must-do. The other pools are perfect for swimming and family activities. The sports centre is immense- huge well equipped gym, tennis courts,bocce ball, ping pong. Rooms are large, clean, excellent house keeping service. Our room was always cleaned by the time we finished morning activities. They will arrange a wide variety of off property activities. Ali'i snorkeling trip, and any of the Hawaii Forest and Trail tours have to be tried. The Big Island has to be experienced it is so different from any of the other Islands (even though it is hard to want to leave the beautiful resort) This was far and away our best sun vacation ever.

Tonight we went to have a 75th birthday celebration on the beach at the Four Seasons - Hualalai. Drinks at the bar before were awesome. Great service and staff. Then we were seated in the back of the restaurant where we eventually got drinks and service. It was slow but even paced. After ordering we had some items split on two plates. Other split items had to be passed across the table. When the wrong meal was served to 2 of the six of us the server stopped in the middle of wine service to deal with it. Glad she left the wine bottle on the bench so at least we could serve ourselves. She never showed back up until after the food initially served wrong was replaced almost 15 minutes later. Never a word of apology. The manager did stop by, apologize and comp those two meals. She then came back as if nothing ever happened. We still had to have a birthday desert that tasted great, even as my wife and I are passing a plate back and forth across the table because couldn’t figure out how to split a tart in two. The server assistants seemed to have a hard time finding the right table or caring if they did or not. Bottom line. The food was great. The service was no where up to the standards of any Four Seasons we have ever been to. I’ve had better service in a roadside burger joint.
