Starting with leis and tropical fruit drinks in coconut shell cups at check in - its all Aloha! Our room overlooked the beach and snorkel pond. Waking up to the sound of the ocean waves was a real treat. All of the staff were pleasant and very helpful. Snorkeling in King's pond with its massive number and variety of tropical fish was an awesome experience. We stayed six days / five nights and were given extended checkout of 5 PM as our flight out was 8 PM. Aloha!

What else can I say. This resort is absolutely the best. Our room, just steps from the ocean, was perfect. Love the newly updated patios and cabana bed. Staff is excellent and we cant wait to return some day.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the kings pond area, sleep with doors open listening to the waves!

Probably the most amazing resort I have ever stayed at. You will never want to leave. Definitely splurge for a full ocean view room. The best pool is the main pool by the Beach Tree, which is also the best restaurant. Also, the walk south along the water in between the lava rock is spectacular. There are way too many terrific things to mention, so I will just say this: Hualalei will spoil you for any resort you ever stay at in the future. Simply fantastic!

My boyfriend and I just stayed at the Four Seasons Haulalai for 6 nights and we are already planning our next trip back. Our experience was sensational from start to finish - the location is secluded, the property is large and well maintained, the rooms are spacious and well appointed and the service is second to none. We were keen to explore the island and the concierge was particularly helpful in organising car hire, a helicopter flight, a swim with the dolphins etc. There was plenty to do around the resort e.g. we took stand up paddle boarding lessons, fed the eagle ray and played poolside games. The dining was reasonably good (though the main restaurant was under renovations). The only downside is the lack of a shuttle to and from the airport and Kona (where a number of the water activities take place); otherwise, our stay was faultless!

Fantastic hotel property right on the ocean north of the Kona airport. Staff was wonderful and the on property ammenities were first class. It is a great place to stay and relax and the staff is motivated to exceed your expectations. Like others I read the many positive reviews and thought it could not be that good - it was. It was also very quiet - we slept with the windows open facing the ocean and we were lulled to sleep by the gentle breezes and waves hitting the beach.

Room Tip: Ocean view delux room was worth the extra expense

We got married on Saturday afternoon at "The Wedding Tree" and spent a few days in absolute heaven - It was undeniably the most fantastic stay we could ever have imagined.

From the planning and execution of our wedding & reception by our wedding planners (Genna & Sarah) who made our special day "perfect" to the unbelievably friendly and genuinely warm nature of every single member of staff we encountered throughout the resort.

To sum it up, the location, rooms, grounds, food, staff and "feel" of this place is truly very, very special in every way. We couldn't praise it or recommend it any higher!!! - Andy & Kim

The Four Seasons in Kona is undeniably gorgeous and luxurious. However, if you are on a couples trip, beware there are a lot of family and kids at this resort. We were on our honeymoon and the room on one side had a family with middle school age kids running around on the lawn in front of our room and the other room had a couple with a baby that cried each morning. However, there is an adult only pool with a swim up bar that is in one word - amazing. There are limited lounge chairs though so make sure to get there early.

The rooms are beautiful and the cleaning staff leaves you a little treat each night like milk and cookies. The resort is very extensive with multiple restaurants and tiki torches everywhere. Only one restaurant has breakfast in the morning and it can get kind of crazy - so I recommend ordering room service if you can. You can't really swim in the ocean there so it's more of a pool resort. Also, private dinners on the beach aren't really worth it - you get a great sunset view from the hotel restaurants and the beach dinners aren't very secluded - ours was on the beach in front of the middle of the resort.

There are also laundry machines all over the property which are free, nice little perk. Anyway, the hotel is beautiful and the service is top knotch.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor, you get a lava rock shower. Also "partial ocean view room...
