We returned to FS Hualalai after visiting 3 years ago. The last visit was not up to FS quality. This 8 night trip was a different story. Our room was next to the Palm Grove Adult Pool. While our 17 yr old son could not visit the pool, our room was right next to the pool and my wife and I loved it. The pool bartender, Grant-from New Zealand, was outstanding. He makes an amazing Traditional Mai Tai, it was unreal. The room was a small suite, but my son, wife, and I liked it. We visited all the pools and enjoyed them, especially Kings Pond. I think we went snorkeling everyday, my son loved it. We didn't use the fins, just mask and snorkel and floated around loving the colors of the fish. I did go golfing at the resort 1 day and played 2 times. The clubhouse talks up the all included drink and snack cart. I saw him 1 time in 2 rounds. Luckily, they provide waters in the coolers. That needed major improvement. The course was in very good condition and greens were good too. The 17th is a gem for sure. We self parked and we liked the fact that we had that option to come and go so freely. The food at the resort was decent, not 5 star. I did not think the room service menu was very extensive. Unfortunately, i have to work while on vacation, so a good business center is vital. Before re-booking, we were assured the problems with the so called business center we encountered 3 yrs ago had been fixed. They were not. The business center is 2 desks, 2 computers, and 2 printers that are exposed to the conditions. The printers rarely worked, but i did not let it diminish my vacation. Hualalai needs to use the FS Maui as an example and provide a small, professional business center. Hualalai is so good on everything else, make that small effort to make it better.

Excelente par 4 golf course. Téchnical and well preserved. If your en clubs the y aré in great conditions. The hotel is beatifull but if ti did incorpórate more aspect of the hawaian cultura t would surely make it stand out . The food should include more local dishes , great quality

Staying at the Four Seasons was the best part of our Hawaiian vacation. The kids loved th pools and the beach. My wife and I loved the service and the quality of the entire experience. We're looking forward to coming back in the future.

My husband and I stayed for four nights in May on a "babymoon" and really enjoyed ourselves. Overall, we were very happy with our stay. Upon arrival, we were upgraded three room categories (had booked through Amex FHR program but only entitled to a one category upgrade) to a full ocean-view room near the King's Pond. The pools were lovely and peaceful, with excellent pool-side service. We mostly hung out at the "quiet pool" near BeachTree and never left the resort! Because we never left, we ate all of our meals on-property, which was the only less-than-stellar aspect of our stay. We expected, and didn't mind paying, very high prices for food. However, for that much money, we thought we would get exceptional cuisine. And, while the ambiance at the restaurants was incredible, with most offering beach/water views (aside from Hualalai Grill), we felt like the dishes we were served were fine, but not great. The best meal we had was probably at the resident's restaurant. So minus one star for food/restaurants, but otherwise we absolutely had a five star stay at the Four Seasons!

We stayed in this gorgeous place for 8 days. It is a beautiful large resort, with 3 pools to choose from. They have great options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet at Ulu, lunch at the Beachtree or by the pool. Ulu for dinner has the best chocolate soufflé ever! Staff at the quiet pool was very attentive even though they were busy as the hotel was full. I felt I was in Gym heaven with a weight room, treadmill room, yoga room,spinning room, and a full lap pool. We jogged a few mornings and the views are spectacular throughout the Hualalai Golf & residencial area. We played golf and the greens are beautifully manicured, the hole 17 and 18 are the best. One reco: we only saw the food cart once in 18 holes and there was not an option to get more drinks/snacks on hole 9/10. And yes, beware of the sea urchins at the beach pool, a couple of friends stepped on them. Other than that, get your snorkel gear and enjoy swimming withthe beautiful fish and turtles. Traders Store/gas station has everything from deli, meds, drinks to coffee/ pretty much everything. Love the coffee machine in our room and the washing/dryer machines. It helps you to pack lighter than usual. Marcia and Debbie were very helpful at concierge in helping us book a helicopter ride and a snorkel tour with dolphins. Although our bed was super comfy, The rooms are good but in need of a renovation and We heard that is coming up, so I'd like to make some recommendations when that happens: More outlets at the bathroom , there was only 2 Make a pocket bathroom door, it is too tight now Bigger beach tables at the beach beds, I keep dropping my water Remove or hide the vacuum from the room, takes half of my shoe space Fill the minibar- our only had wine and beer however we had a full menu of things we never saw. We never use the toaster in our room

Stayed here for 3 nights for our family vacation. Hotel was absolutely amazing. Every inch of the property was clean and well maintained. Service was excellent. Came back one day to a full basket of awesome snacks in our room and another night to milk and cookies. That's what the Four Seasons resorts do...they go out of their way to make your stay extra pleasant. Four Seasons Hualalai was no exception. Plenty of shaded places to sit around the pool, which was great for giving the kids a little break from the sun. The breakfast buffet at Ulu was easily the best breakfast of any hotel we've stayed at.

My husband and I just returned from our stay and we had a great time! The restaurants here were our favorite of all the resorts we have visited. Especially the Hualalai Grill and the spectacular Harvest dinner at Ulu- definitely do this if you have the chance. The rooms were comfortable but the resort is large so our King's Pond location made it quite a walk to get to the adult pool and some of the other resort amenities. Wished we could have been in a more central location but we didn't ask to switch rooms because as a trade off our spot was very quiet. The service was fabulous, as we have come to expect from the FS. Lots of smiling faces eager to help. My husband golfed twice and the course was beautiful (although the FS Lanai course had better views). Overall we had a great time and since this resort seems to be more family oriented we may return in the future when we have little ones of our own ;)

Amazingly gorgeous location with substandard bed. This was excellent: complimentary champagne , local rate which included breakfast. Bell staff excellent. Here's the area to improve: The bed had sink holes on each edge that swallows the guest . You can not roll to the middle because there is a mound volcano in the middle of the bed. At check out ( we only stayed one day) we were asked how the stay was and we shared the bed experience. The receptionist was dismissive and made excuses. While we did not ask for a discount, they gave us $100 off room price. Frankly I wanted a restful nights sleep and would have gladly paid regular price for it. Beautiful location --- but sadly the bed was substandard.

From the moment my girlfriend and I crossed through the exclusive gates of the Four Seasons' palatial property at Hualalai, we knew we were in for a treat. Let's face it, though: certain expectations intensify when you're paying upwards of $1,000/night--over twice as much as neighboring hotels' rates--and we hoped the quality of our stay would at least be commensurate with the cost. Let's just say our brief stay was worth every penny. The level of service and detail at this hotel is worthy of six stars (out of five); every employee went the extra mile to ensure we had a comfortable, first-class experience from the second we arrived. From the leis and cocktails upon arrival to the complementary room upgrade and bottle of champagne (to celebrate our anniversary), the staff made us feel like royalty till our rueful departure. Adding to our sheer awe and delight were the quality of food/service at the restaurant (Beach Tree Bar)--arguably the best dinner we had on the island; the friendly honu (sea turtles) on the beach; and the world-class fitness facilities and spa. All of these things exceeded our expectations and made for an extraordinarily pampering visit. How can you beat the quality of this resort? I'm not sure there's an answer. Sure, it's pricey, but if you're looking for an island experience that will knock your socks off in every possible way, forget cost for a minute and treat yourself. You won't regret it!

Great hotel. The beachfront setting is stunning and my favorite part of the resort. Super expensive, but great for those who can swing it. Disappointed that we could hear our noisy upstairs neighbors. The staff was extremely good and were very eager to please every need.
