Went to the four season's hualalai for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. They did a great job from trying to call us by our name the moment we stepped out of our rental car, to being given a mai tai, cool towels and fruits while checking in. Everything was so personable. I have a 2.5 year old and 8 month old so I cannot attest to all the other reviews which poo poo on too many kids at the resort. I can say that there is an adult pool with a swim up bar that I would have loved to go to but the other pools were just fine and if pools aren't your thing then you either snorkel the King's pond (rather frigid!) or swim in the lagoon!
Epitome of a resort, worth every dime. Had a ground floor room, ocean facing and enjoyed the outdoor shower in the back almost every day. My wife said the only drawback was the lack of "authenticness" and as she was wishing she saw more Hawaiian workers or had more of the Hawaii feel someone came by blowing a conch and the tiki torches lit up. I'm sad I'm back home.....
