The hotel picked us up from the airport and we were attended to with priority right from the get go. All the staff throughout our stay addressed us or passed by us with a friendly Aloha greeting and made eye contact. I was there for a wedding and we were taken care of very well but the bride and groom...

The entire stay at the Four Seasons was terrific! The service everywhere is over the top. Our room was impeccable and had outstanding views. Everything was well maintained and memorable.

Stayed here June 2011 (the date selector wouldn't allow us to go back this far) and have spent the better part of the last 3 years thinking of nothing but of how to return. Backdrop, amenities, staff, accommodations, attention to details, facility grounds, the spa, the pools, the restaurants, the bars... really, everything was amazing and near-perfect. We've since visited...

Our third visit, and there's lots to talk about. First, the room you choose matters. We have been very lucky to enjoy great rooms. And it is hard to choose because they have had their pros and cons. On this occasion, we have enjoyed an ocean front one bedroom suite on the upper level, rooms are situated on two level...

I am very fussy when it comes to hotels, and I love this place. Its amazing. The food.... 9 months later we are still talking about the food.

Aloha! What a lovely review, especially coming from a "fussy" traveler! We are fortunate to have several different swimming options for our guests and I am happy you found the adults-only, swim-up Palm Grove bar, a favorite spot for many guests looking for peace, quiet and a yummy tropical drink. I am also happy you found the washer/dryers, another unique...

We have stayed at this property various times and it keeps getting better and better. I think it comes down to a really dedicated and diligent management team.

This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed for a week on our honeymoon. We were initially placed in a room overlooking the gold course, and there was a problem in our bathroom.
