To echo almost all of the other reviews on here about the Four Seasons Hualalai, we absolutely loved our stay at the resort. It is a beautiful property in a good location for exploring the island, or just relaxing by the pool. We stayed five nights and didn't want to leave.
Highlights for us included the awesome workout facility (with open-air rooms to enjoy the sunshine and ocean breeze), breakfasts at the coffee shop near the tennis courts, relaxing at the quiet pool, snorkeling in Kings Pond (yes, it's manmade, but the fish in there are beautiful and it got us ready for our snorkeling trip later in the week), walking along the beach boardwalk, and dinners at both Beach Tree (where they had a great live band playing) and Ulu.
Everyone on the staff we interacted with was friendly and helpful.
It's a splurge, but totally worth it.
If/when we return to the Big Island, we will definitely plan to stay again at this resort.
