average getaway

We enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great views of the ocean. Staff checking in were rude and gave us a room as far away from the conference we were attending as we could be. Gave us terrible directions on how to get to our room at midnight. Other staff were much friendlier. The food was ok. Beaches were clean and fun. Snorkeling was fair but waves too rough most days so couldn't see as good. Years past it was excellent when water was calmer. Parking garage was ok but they charge $15 a day...should be free. Wireless internet also additional fee which seems absurd.

Quick business trip

Great place to spend a night in North Kohala, with convenient access to Waimea and the north shore of the Big Island. Very friendly, professional staff. But nothing open after about 8:00pm. If you're looking to relax, an amazing beach, and views of Mauna Loa, though, this is a good choice.

Nice place - limite food options

Everything was pretty nice but food was an issue. There were limited options and if you wanted to go off premise - then not much available inside of 10 miles.

a piece of heaven in the big island.

the resort and lovely vistas from your room, the staff and the semi-private beach are heavenly, and perfect for a leisurely and unhurried pace, and far from kona. i always have a great time in Hapuna and I already can't wait to go back there again.

two star service

Arriving early evening on Saturday night we were dissappointed to find on shusi served at the sole eatery. Furhermore, NO SHUTTLE to the sister resort of Mona kea. Each day only 1 resturant is open with the pool food servise stopping at 2 pm. Heaven help any one who does not eat raw fish. The staff is not helpful. The rooms are dated with an old Sony TV and wornwicker furniture. Room service and housekeeping are also slow. 2 star service at 5 star prices.
