Breath taking rooms w view by King's Pond, wonderful experience with nature and the staff were all very accommodating and courteous.

Must return with kids soon! Worth the extra $$$

The Four Seasons Hualalai is hands down the best hotel i've been to and I think back to my time there at least once a week! I've been there twice now and hope to go back at some stage in the future.

Our rooms were perfect with beautiful views, the staff were friendly and helpful and sitting around the pool being offered ice lollies, sunscreen, water, mist spray etc is just bliss.

The buffet breakfast is INCREDIBLE, I think i tried absolutely everything on offer and enjoyed it all!

Being able to run/stroll along the beach and be able to see turtles, dolphins and whales just blows your mind away- truly unforgettable! Would recommend in a heart beat to anyone who asks. Wonderful

This property is beautiful and from the moment you drive in the staff is waiting to server you at a level few expect. They embodie the Aloha spririt and what it means to vacation on Hawaii.

Room Tip: the 600 units have a great ocean views

Have read about this place for years in travel magazines and in tourist surveys. Made it a point to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary here. WOW! We were upgraded to an "eco" suite overlooking the King's Pond for 3 nights. It was so outstanding it was hard to leave the room. We took breakfast on the balcony every day. We arrived on a Saturday in time for the beachside buffet -- what a treat. Best buffet ever - seafood, sushi, so much more. Rented clubs and shoes and played a round of golf- had a 0800 start time and played solo and finished 18 hours under 3 hours. We did a couples massage in the spa -- best ever. This resort is truly in a class by itself. Our only other comparator is the FS in Costa Rica which is an equivalent property, but also offers a beach for swimming, You have to know coming here that it is expensive. $400 for the golf. $21 each for a Ketel One Martini and $16 for a Mai Tai. But the experience is genuinly priceless and will last a lifetime.

Florian R, Manager at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, responded to this review, 5 April 2012
Thank you so much for your feedback and I am so glad we were able to live up to your expectations. It is good to hear that you enjoyed our upgraded "Eco Crescent".

The Eco Crescent started with ideas like replacing plastic water bottles with ceramic carafes and cups, which are refilled daily by our staff. These initiatives will ultimately help us to reduce our carbon footprint.

Thank you so much for taking time to write about your experience. We certainly appreciate your feedback and even though you were able to check us off your "bucket list" we hope to see you back very soon.

Warmest Aloha,

Florian Riedel
Resort Manager

The room was so great I didn't want to leave it. Great sunset views across golf course overlooking ocean. Kept our doors open at night. Outdoor shower to die for! Service was embarrassingly attentive. Attention to detail by staff and management was exceptional. Every need was anticipated and satisfied. Expensive but worth it.
