We stayed 6 nights in an Ocean view room. We were constantly delighted by the friendly professional staff and unexpected pampering. Food and cocktails were fabulous but the wine was a bit expensive. The resort is stunning, but unless you hire a car, it's pretty expensive to go anywhere else. I recommend hiring a car and spending a day driving...

This was the perfect holiday from start to end. Highlights were the service, food, room quality and location - espeically the food. We ate in every restaurant and all were fantastic. Can't wait to come back! Natalie & Andrew Bettini

As with anything, when your expectations are built up it's hard not to be a little disappointed. Everyone I spoke to about this property had such amazing things to say and the pricetag was so high that I guess I expected everything about it to be truly special. It is a very beautiful location but the beach is less than...

From the moment we arrived through departure we received amazing service from everyone! The location is gorgeous, but the service really made this stay more memorable. I highly recommend this hotel to all!

We were here 3 years ago and had a fantastic experience. I was worried that the experience wouldn't live up to my memories, but it absolutely did. Some things have changed (the Beach Tree is mostly gone), but is still in my mind one of the best 10 resorts on the planet. When we arrived, our room had several beautiful...

Overall we enjoyed the trip but need to bring the following to your attention: I traveled with my toddler and mother 09/07-09/17. On arrival, we were given room 1910 on the second floor making access difficult given I need to carry my toddler and a stroller up and down many times a day. That night we found out the room...

This is a beautiful pricey property, but too many smokers, at the pool, at the beach, and generally walking around the property. If you smoke, this is the place for you, if smelling smoke nauseates you, don't come here. I paid too much to be disappointed for 5 days. The location is beautiful. The grounds are perfect. No crowd even...

The Four Seasons Hualalai lived up to it's reputation....and exceeded our expectations. We stayed five nights in a beautiful golf ocean view suite. Don't be fooled by thinking that because this particular building is one of the farthest away from beach that it is not as nice. In fact, we LOVED being away from the pool area (can get noisy)...

Aloha Seahawks fans! If you were blown away that we opened the Hualalai Grille for you to watch your game, we were blown away by your wonderful review! I agree that there are definite advantages in staying in Golf Ocean View accommodations, including being entertained by golfers playing right in front of the accommodations, parking your car right behind your...

The rooms are very comfortable, the outside shower is lovely. The gardens and pools, are magnificent. The jogging map is great and worth a walk even if you don't want to jog. We only had 3 days here but would like to stay longer, explore the island more and play some golf. The food was great and the service excellent....
