My wife and I stayed at the Hapuna Prince Resort for 13 days and enjoyed every minute of it. What a beautiful resort and surronding areas. The only downfall about the resort was the amount of restaurants to choose from. Being that your are 30 minutes outside of the bid city, Kona, there are not a lot of options for food nearby. 20 min drive to Weimea which is worth the drive at least once a day for some good local food or 5 minute drive to the harbor for some more expensive restaurants. Can't forget to get your Hawiaan Shaved Ice from the Orginal Shaved Ice Company (Truck parked next to the Blue Dragon).
We had an excellent beach front room (it was worth the extra for the upgrade from ocean view).
The room was comfortable and large, with a good shower (over the bath). Staff were very friendly all round.
A much quieter place to stay compared with Waikiki, with nothing to hear at night except the distant waves.
Two shopping centers were within easy walking distance for getting pretty well anything you would want.
The swimming pool was great and included a water slide.
Although the resort had only one restaurant there were six others within walking distance at the shopping centers.
A very good value Luau is held Wednesday and Saturday nights - open bar, buffet, and show all inclusive.
I love the Mauna Kea! No place like it in the world. It is so understated and not flashy. Just lovely old style Hawaii. Don't ever change too much MK because what makes you special is your tradition. Thank you! We will be back year after year because you make us relaxed and happy. Mahalo!
The condo was beautiful and well-furnished. However, there was a severe ant problem that prevented us from being able to use the kitchen very much because we were constantly killing ants and wiping them up. It was too bad because otherwise, the condo was perfect.
