Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

There are many reasons Hawaii remains the ideal vacation destination for so many dreamers: from its incomparable beauty to the ever-present aloha spirit, Hawaii is a place to be experienced. Mauna Kea Beach Hotel sits on the Big Island's sandy Kohala Coast as if it was placed there by deities at the beginning of time, and not Lauraunce S. Rockefeller in 1965. Since then, Mauna Kea has undergone numerous renovations, always striving to remain contemporary and stylish, but never losing its understated elegance and distinctive island charm.

The moment you arrive at Mauna Kea you are welcomed with the spirit of lokomaika'i (sharing from kindness within). From the fresh flower lei greeting to the relaxed seated check-in, you feel as if your presence is valued and your comfort is a top priority. The accommodations are contemporary and chic, with simple adornments to complement the breathtaking views of the ocean, the island, and nearby golf course from your lanai, while lavish amenities such as high-definition flat screen televisions, iPod docking stations, and L'Occitane bath products provide a touch of luxury. Despite the romantic, comfortable ambiance created by the spacious guestrooms and suites, a trip to the Big Island would be incomplete without spending time on the beach. Enhanced beach services such as padded chaise lounges, cabanas, and opulently plush beach towels ensure a relaxing day in the sun for adults, while Keiki Club offers fun, safe activities for the little ones.

Pairing up with its kaikaina (younger sister) hotel, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Mauna Kea offers guests exciting ways to fill the day, from shopping and water sports, to golf, tennis, and Hawaiian cultural experiences like lei making, music, and crafts. Make sure you head back to Mauna Kea as the sun sets, at night the beach truly comes alive! Mauna Kea's delectable eateries are a stimulating sensory experience: Copper Terrace sets the mood with torch-lighting, and serves delicious themed pupus each night, while Manta & Pavilion Wine Bar's exhibition kitchen demonstrates the true art of creating a culinary masterpiece. Casual dining at Hau Tree offers classic barbecue favorites, and once a week a traditional luau is held on the beach. The smells of imu-roasted kalua pig, island fish, and finger-licking poi tantalize your taste buds while the steel drums provide cool island melodies during dinner before a fun (and very entertaining) group hula. Hawaii remains one of the top sites for destination weddings, and if you set Mauna Kea as the backdrop for your special day, you will not be disappointed. Get picture perfect at the on-site salon, and let the hotel's gorgeous grounds set the tone for an unforgettable reception. At Mauna Kea Beach Hotel you are welcome to enjoy your ideal vacation experience, whatever it may be, because at Mauna Kea the most important guest is you.

This was a beautiful hotel. It was built in the 1960s, so the design of the building is not as modern as some of the newer resorts, but that does not take away from the beauty of the building. Its s a huge resort with open air corridors and lobbies. The people at the hotel are extremely nice and attentive to every need. The concierge team was very helpful on information about the island that I needed. The restaurants at the resort were very good quality and the bar down on the beach is great to watch the sunset. I would highly recommend this to all people looking for a resort set on a beautiful beach.

Simply the most divine hotel I have ever stayed at. My husband and I stayed at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for our honeymoon and you feel like royalty from the moment you arrive. The atmosphere is relaxing and the hotel has a vintage charm that we both loved. We can't wait to return. Tip: Try the Frederico!

Well appointed hotel maintaining its 50 years of charm. Beachwing is newest section but a walk from lobby, shops, and restaurant. If fact, layout can be confusing. Room with ocean view was good size and quiet. While clean, expect bugs. Salon services ok and friendlt, but over priced for level of service. Recognized gold level membership immediately. The longer you stay here the more it gets harder to leave. Manta viewing but poor snorkeling. Good beach.

First, the good. The views from everywhere are breathtaking. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The staff was friendly. Now the terrible. The hotel was a long walk up and down a hill from the beach. Although the beach was a lovely crescent, it was insanely crowded. Chairs and umbrellas were lined up tightly together in rows. I did not enjoy having to sit 12 inches from strangers who spoke loudly, played music and, in one case, a man who clipped his toenails right by my side. The rooms were adequate.The overall feel was corporate. Probably the most offensive thing was the horrific state of the linens. I resent paying about $800 a night and getting thin, scratchy threadbare towels. Housekeeping was horrendous. On several days we returned to our room at 4 P.M. to find it had not been serviced!!! Everything at Mauna Kea is way overpriced which might not hurt as much if it had not been so flawed. Next time,we will stay elsewhere.
