First of all the hotel is just gorgeous!! The rooms were large but the bed was too soft for us so we got housekeeping and they provided us a board to put underneath the mattress which helped. The main problem was the high cost of the food at the resort. It was way overpriced for the quality of the food. The only restaurant that was worth the price and the view was the KPC restaurant which is located right on the beach. My suggestion is that you should rent a car to get food off of the resort. We went to the deli at Safeway and got some meat, cheese, mayo, and bread ad made our own sandwiches since the room had a refrigerator. We also got sodas, water, and alcohol where you can buy at Safeway, Walmart, Target, etc in Hawaii. We only spent money on dinners at the resort. Breakfast was 25 dollars a person so we drove to the Queens marketplace and went to Starbucks. If you don't have a car you are pretty much trapped at the resort and parking is 15 dollars a day if you self park which is a long walk, 21 dollars a day for valet service, and is free is you have a handicapped placard so don't forget to pack it if you hae one. We ran into some wonderful hrlpful people at the hotel such as Mike who brought our bags to the room. however, there were also some rude and not very helpful people we ran into working at the resort as well. The pools and the ocean fed lagoon were fantastic. The views and beauty of the resort were amazing. you do have to walk a lot but we got used to it. Even though there were trams and boats to take us from place to place, we rarely used them because they never seemed to be around when we needed them. I als highly recommend getting a room in the Lagoon tower as that s where all the action is as it s close t the dolphins, Lagoon pool, the ocean fed lagoon, and is a simple short walk to the main lobby. We had a 5th floor Lagoon tower room that looked out over the parking lot. The clerk told us the view would not be good and encoursged us to upgrade but we declined since we didn't think we would spend much time in our room. I am glad we didn't because every night before dinner we would have cocktails in our room and look out over the roof of the main building and parking lot which also had a view of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. We could even hear the ocean so the view was not as bad as we had been told. Overall we loved our vacation here and we would come back. I just think if you enjoy the best psrts of the resort and stick to eating outside you will do just fine!

When I chose a resort online I always read what the travelers thought about their stay. For the most part the Marriott had very good reviews. My next step is to see if what the resort offers fits my expectations. I like parking (rental car a must) and internet access to be included in the hotel fee. Great swimming pools and close to the beach. Of course the food was excellent and they made the best Hawaiian Margaritas. Yummy! The staff at the resort were very accomodating. Also the Sansei Japanese Restaurant at Queens Market (next to the resort, also recommended by other travelers) is a must for great sushi. Thank you Marriott for helping make my vacation memorable.

The resort was just as shown. Beautiful setting, service great, immaculate rooms and grounds. We visited just about every other resort and the Fairmont stood out for beauty and in keeping with the the Hawaiian culture. Although the food is pricey, it is consistant with other fine resorts and dining. We would highly recommend this resort.

The best thing about Hapuna Prince is the feeling of tranquility the minute you arrive. The open air spaces for the restaurant with the daily Hawaiian live happy hour music resounds gently throughout the property. The pool is adequate and the beach is probably the best on the big island and right at your doorstep. They rent snorkles and fins at the pool to take to the beach. If you want to rent more adventure, as in a stand up paddle board or kayak, you can hike a mile long cliff path to the neighboring resort of Mauna Kea where they also have their own gorgeous beach and their own out door beach bar for a different atmosphere to sip your tropical daily libation. It may not the best resort for children who might get bored and it is a long drive to the town of Kailua in Kona (32 miles) which seems to take forever on the only road. 15 minutes away, you can find resort shops and other resorts with different venues. Hapuna Beach Prince is a lovely spot for couples.

A classy and picturesque resort. The crescent beach here is fantastic: beautiful, secluded, and clean. There are coral reefs at either end that are great for casual snorkeling, while the majority of the beach is an unbroken stretch of soft, clean sand. Our room was recently renovated, but in the bathroom some of the renovations were already showing wear. Service is generally, but not universally, friendly. Food prices at the resort are very high, but this is to be expected in Hawai'i at a beautiful resort.

My husband and I very much enjoyed our six-day stay at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows in February. The property was beautiful and well maintained, with open, airy lobby and atrium. Grounds surrounding the resort were manicured and blended in well with the ecology. Our ocean front room on the 4th floor had a wonderful view of the beach and the bay from both inside the room and the lanai, where we saw migrating whales in the distance several times. There was a small fridge (empty) in our room for us to store snacks and other drinks besides the complimentary bottle water provided by the resort, which was a plus. Twice a day, our room was meticulously cleaned and made up. The resort also lived up to its eco-friednly label by having recycling bin in our room to promote recycling. Everyone working at the resort was very friendly and very service oriented. We particularly loved our wait person at the bountiful breakfast buffet, who remembered our name and made us felt "at home". Managers of various on-site restaurants stopped by while we dined to ensure that we were happy with the services and the food. We also received wonderful assistance from the concierage to plan and book our excurions and dinners outside of the resort. Overall, we were extremely happy with our choice for our first trip to the Big Island and will definitely stay again at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows when we return.
