This is one of my favorite places in the world and I've been around. This is a great big hotel melting outwards to scattered condos which melt further out to free standing mult-million dollar vacation homes. A golf course runs through it. Besides the golf course, there are 800 year natural fish farming ponds once used by Kings. As the...

The accommodations and facilities at this extremely welcoming and friendly hotel are top notch. Unparalleled views can be had right from your lanai, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beach, the pool, and the natural beauty of the setting.

I did not want to leave! This place was wonderful! Clean, well kept, beautiful grounds! And staff were beyond helpful with anything we needed! View from our room ( ocean front, first floor ) was beautiful! And it was quiet and laid back. We slept every night with our doors open and the only thing we heard was the waves!...

Words cannot describe this property. We had a deluxe oceanfront room; views from our balcony and sounds of the ocean waves were spectacular! Sunsets were fantastic! This is the place to stay if you are visiting Kona.

Tranquility at it's best. The ambiance is breathtaking and provides a since of zen. Miles of beachfront shoreline for your morning bike ride, run or a casual walk. Mauna Lani is a majesty resort with golfing, sea adventures and the perfect sunsets.

They also have an abundance of lounging chairs at the beach. The beach is beautiful! We visited the beach everyday for a couple of hours each day. Each day we saw a different animal...

As always hotel is the best.. this is our 4th visit to this property.Don't tell anyone how good the service is or how nice staff treats you, they might want to raise price!! Golf both south and north courses are worth price.

You cannot stay here without feeling the wonderful aloha spirit -- it will rub off on you! Our week here was perfection. From the minute we walked in until the minute we left everyone here was warm, friendly and responsive to our every need. We asked for ice and it came in under 60 seconds. We had a little problem...

We booked the Mauna Lani for a stay during our Hawaiian vacation spending 8 nights in an ocean front room. This hotel is amazing -- first class staff and amenities. The pool area, beach hut and ocean front lounge chairs do not disappoint. Snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking is at your front door. Everyone is so friendly I felt like I...
