Situated on the world-renowned Kohala Coast on the Big Island, in a tranquil spot away from the any city center, the hotel will take your breath away.

Hit the links at the resort's North and South Courses, and play 18 holes through majestic lava flows along the coast. Visit Mookini Heiau State Monument, the birthplace of legendary King Kamehameha, then continue on to see the Puukohala Heiau, where Kamehameha the Great asked the war god Kukailimoki to help him unite the islands. Hike through gorgeous coastal trails in Lapakahi State Historical Park and cool off with some fabulous snorkeling along the secluded beaches of Keaweula Bay. Enjoy an afternoon of deep sea fishing off the Kona Coast, then return to the hotel for sunset dinner. Dine oceanfront at The CanoeHouse and enjoy fresh Pacific seafood, or go casual at The Ocean Bar & Grill and sip a cocktail as the cool ocean breeze drifts past flickering tiki torches.

This is a wonderful hotel with a warm and gracious atmosphere. We arrived after 20 hours of traveling and a late check-in to such a warm welcome. The ladies who checked us in were so hospitable and patient given our fatigued state. You are greeted at the Check-in desk with juice and leis. The strawberry pog was so very refreshing after our long journey. And, we both thought the leis were a nice "hawaiian" touch that is missing at most hotels. The room was lovely. I especially liked that the bathroom area was roomy (double vanities, soaking tub/shower, separate toliet area) and the door could be closed. The teak furniture and shutters on the lanai were beautiful. We enjoyed drinks at the Honu Bar and breakfast at the Bay Terrace. Service & food/drink were very good in both locations. We loved to stroll the grounds and enjoyed looking at the salt water ponds full of tropical fish and even some small sharks. The beach is very nice with lots of loungers. I know the hotel has new owners and I hope they keep the Aloha spirit that is such a part of this hotel. We highly recommend it!

We spent a week with our 2 teenagers at the Mauna Lani and all of us would highly recommend it Beach location is great with awesome snorkeling -we saw turtles everyday. Lots of cabanas and hammocks so you can spend the whole day at the beach. Rooms are nice -service is great! Good gym with classes and great pool. We ate at the Canoe House which was really nice but the best was watching the sunsets by the pool at the Ocean Bar. We will definitely be back!!

A couple quick notes before adding my review... -This was our 11th trip to Hawaii, but our first trip to the Big Island. While we loved our visit, the Big Island is a distant 3rd favorite behind Kauai and Maui. I'm sure my impression of the Big Island had some impact on my impression of the resort. -We were at the resort for a conference, although I do think we would have considered it if we had a choice of where to stay. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Mauna Lani. While a little dated, the resort is beautiful. The open air lobby is really fantastic. The resort is large, but it's not overwhelming. We arrive late afternoon and check-in was a breeze. Front desk staff was very welcoming and made us, especially our 3 children, feel like valued guests. Our bags were delivered very promptly, which was very much appreciated - our kids were ready for the beach and pool. I thought the rooms were very tastefully decorated. We were in a king suite, which had a couch bed for the kids. We also had a roll-away bed and still had plenty of room. Loved the big screen TVs and furnishings, a nice blend of modern and still Hawaiian style. Having two showers was fantastic. We were on the 6th floor and never really waited for an elevator.

I was here in my younger, single days and remembered the great location on the beach surreally located in a huge lava field, and that's where I wanted to spend some time with my family (four sons) on our first Hawaiian visit. From the minute we rolled into the front portico and dropped the car with the friendly (but not officious) valet to the gracious check-in with Rose and Lovey all the way to our departure some days later, it was just what a Hawaiian resort vacation should be. Great rooms (I went up a notch to get adjoining ocean view rooms), great restaurants (sunset from Canoe House will be a lasting memory; morning buffet at the Bay Terrace with the birds will be another), beach, pool, room service, fitness club, bike rental. All easy and great. Comfortable bed and nice, steady white noise from the HVAC. We got good use of the hotel guest laundry. Lots of nice guests from USA and Japan, too. Not a single complaint, except that I wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I came to Hawaii for our honeymoon and were quite excited about the Mauna Lani hotel based on the good reviews and the pictures of the hotel on the website. The experience was absolutely awful, so much so that we ended up canceling and leaving after one night (we were supposed to stay four). I'm not quite sure where to even begin with this, but the room was completely run-down, dingy, dark and dirty (nothing like the pictures online). The rooms looked like they hadn't been updated for 30 years: a broken, loud elevator, no lights in the hallways, dinged up furniture, and stained carpets. We asked the front desk if there was a way we could switch rooms since it was for our honeymoon and we were disappointed. They said that could oblige if we wanted to pay an extra $50 per night (on top of the $419 we were already paying). They showed us an "ocean view" room which consisted of the same dingy room we had before but with a sliver of the ocean in the distance (it mainly looked out over the hotel roof which wasn't stunning by any means). They finally decided to upgrade us, which was nice, but the second room they put us in had BUGS crawling on the countertops, in the shower, and crawling in from the ceiling! My husband went down again to let them know to which the manager responded "What kind of bugs are they?". UM, DOES IT MATTER? I don't want bugs in my room, period. They finally switched us to a third room which we spent the night in before leaving. The third room didn't have bugs, but had hair in the bathroom and the sliding glass doors didn't seal so all night we heard the wind whistling through. Overall the hotel was incredibly dated, dirty and I would NEVER go back.
