This is one of the finest resorts on the Kona coast and an original designed for complete "Hawaiian" experience. Stroll the Royal estate and feel the historical significance of the property. Great beach, snorkeling and venue for exploring the "Bid Island". Multiple dining options on site and close by at nearby resorts. I will visit again!

Stayed here for 2 nights with our kids. Had a great view of the ocean. Nice room, and they brought in 2 rollaway beds so the kids didn't have to share. Hotel beach is nice. Lots of lounges, some hammoks. Had some great snorkeling in the reef just offshore. Saw lots of fish, tons of urchins, and a bunch of...

A traditional resort experience with great pools, beach, rooms and restaurant. This was my first trip to Hawaii - I spent four nights here following four nights in the rain forest of Volcano Village and I highly recommend that first-time visitors to the island experience the different climates of the island. Having the more rustic charms and cooler climate of...

This was our first time at this resort and we totally enjoyed it. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had an Oceanfront room and had breakfast in the room each morning. The food was good and right on time. I usually order the night before. Helps us get ready for the day. Another thing I like about this hotel is...

First time on the big island so a crap shoot choosing our hotel. We hit the jackpot. One of the few hotels with direct beach access. Even more impressive were the hammocks hung between two palm trees lined along the beach. At high tide I was suspended above the water. It was surreal. This hotel as an air of easy...

The rooms at this place are amazingly big. The physical building, while impressive, shows signs of age if you look closely. There are retail spaces that sit mostly empty which is a bit odd, and the bar is pretty, bad. That said, the pool area, beach front and recreational areas are amazing and the staff overall was attentive and courteous....

We recently stayed her for 3 nights with our teenage children and another family! We had ocean front rooms! Amazing! We loved sitting on our balcony watching the sunset over the lagoon. Although the hotel is quite old, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Staff were friendly and we loved that you didn't have to pay for sun beds...

We stayed at both the Fairmont Orchid & Mauna Lani and although both were nice and quite similar I preferred the Fairmont, it was more stylish & had nicer bathrooms. Service was great at Mauna Lani and you can hire a car directly at the hotel which is a nice bonus! Great easy shuttle service st both resorts.

We have been visiting the Mauna Lani since 1986. While the location is spectacular, the magic of the Mauna Lani starts with the staff. From the moment you arrive, Cy and his team warmly greet guests and welcome you home. The front desk staff delightfully greets you with delicious cold tropical juice and personally checks each guest in at a...

“Make sure to get ocean view or ocean front. The parking lot is pretty well hidden by the palm trees but definitely not the view you want.”
