We splurged on a getaway without the kids and while this place is kid-friendly (but plenty of adult-only areas), it was the perfect break and place to relax. They really think of everything here and you need to show up with very little of the extras. For example, they have sunscreen and aloe at the pools, they clean your sunglasses,...

Greetings from Hualalai! Thank you for taking the time to describe (with wonderful detail) your recent visit without children to Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. I often advise parents to come twice a year - once with the kids since there are so many activities for our younger guests, and once without children to enjoy the peace and serenity of Hualalai....

We stayed 6 nights in an Ocean view room. We were constantly delighted by the friendly professional staff and unexpected pampering. Food and cocktails were fabulous but the wine was a bit expensive. The resort is stunning, but unless you hire a car, it's pretty expensive to go anywhere else. I recommend hiring a car and spending a day driving...

As with anything, when your expectations are built up it's hard not to be a little disappointed. Everyone I spoke to about this property had such amazing things to say and the pricetag was so high that I guess I expected everything about it to be truly special. It is a very beautiful location but the beach is less than...

We were here 3 years ago and had a fantastic experience. I was worried that the experience wouldn't live up to my memories, but it absolutely did. Some things have changed (the Beach Tree is mostly gone), but is still in my mind one of the best 10 resorts on the planet. When we arrived, our room had several beautiful...

Overall we enjoyed the trip but need to bring the following to your attention: I traveled with my toddler and mother 09/07-09/17. On arrival, we were given room 1910 on the second floor making access difficult given I need to carry my toddler and a stroller up and down many times a day. That night we found out the room...

This is a beautiful pricey property, but too many smokers, at the pool, at the beach, and generally walking around the property. If you smoke, this is the place for you, if smelling smoke nauseates you, don't come here. I paid too much to be disappointed for 5 days. The location is beautiful. The grounds are perfect. No crowd even...
