We've stayed at the Four Seasons in Maui. The FS in **Maui** is the best hotel experience of my life so we were wondering if the FS Hualalai could outdo it. Short answer: I don't think so. First off, I'm not a fan of the Big Island itself. The ride from the airport to the hotel felt like a drive...

My husband and I flew to Hawaii from the UK and booked a couple of days at the four seasons to recover from our jetlag before beginning the more serious business of exploring the islands. The service was absolutely impeccable from check in to check out. We loved the congratulations bottle of champagne on arrival, our beautiful ocean facing room,...

Aloha!! We like to think that Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is a magical place and reading your review, I think you felt the magic! Even the turtles enjoy the peace and tranquility of the resort and I loved your comment that they were "snoozing." I hope you will visit with us many times in the months and years to come,...

Visited the Four Seasons Hualalai in mid-July of this year and it was spectacular. Our room was a two-bedroom suite with beautiful views of both the ocean and the grounds/pool - it was hands down the nicest vacation set up I have ever experienced. It even had a steam shower with aromatherapy, a personal favorite of mine. My kids LOVED...

Incredible location. Turtles everywhere and we had close encounters with hundreds of dolphins during morning snorkelling trip. We booked oceanfront deluxe room by the kings pond, not impressed by the view. It was not oceanview and a quite busy gateway in front of our room was annoying. No privacy on the balcony/lanai. Loved the outdoor lava garden shower. Good quality...

Greetings from Hualalai! I loved your observation that Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is not only a lovely vacation spot for people, but even the turtles, dolphins and whales enjoy visiting! Since there are 5 different crescents of rooms and suites, please inquire about an accommodation in a more private spot on future visits. We hope you will visit many times...

The Four Seasons Hualalai Resort is a luxurious five diamond beach front property that extends genuine Aloha to their guests. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the lush, tropical grounds are truly spectacular. We had dinner at their highly-rated "Ulu" restaurant overlooking the ocean and both the food and service were excellent. This resort earns its reputation as being one...

Loved this hotel. Stayed here after several friends had shared their great experiences. This is a beautiful and serene place to stay. Room was AMAZING, I never wanted to leave. Service was wonderful and the food/ambiance at the restaurants was great. We enjoyed the hotel's snorkeling area - got to see some really great fish in a semi-natural environment. Golf...

My wife, granddaughter and I were at this resort July 9th through the 18th - it was the finest resort experience of my life. The facilities are excellent but it is the service and attitude of the staff - across the board - that set Four Seasons apart. I give this resort my highest recommendation. My thanks to the staff...

From the reception upon arrival to the moment we checked out, the staff of the Four Seasons Hualalai was exceptional. Our family of 14 quickly became known as "The Big O'hana" with the resort staff. We are accustomed to struggling with reservations because of the party size, even at 5 diamond resorts, but we did not encounter this at Hualalai....
