We are trying to decide on a hotel for a two-night stay next month prior to our week in a timeshare. We reserved the Marriott Waikoloa, but have since found a good rate at the Mauna Lani that is making us reconsider our stay.
We love to spend most of our time in the water (ocean or pool works for us) but also prefer laid-back eateries.
We were attracted to the Marriott because it was smaller than the Hilton, while still being able to see the Manta Rays that visit the Hilton at night. And we read that we can walk across the street for more restaurant options.
But overall the Mauna Lani is sounding a lot more appealing to us for the snorkeling, intimate feel and the better beach experience.
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
