TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

We booked to stay only 3 nights, we were upgraded to a partial ocean view with a massive room and huge balcony. A very nice surprise. The hotel is really well designed, a nice breeze blows through, it is open and spacious. We had room 408. The room was quiet, lovely comfy bed. Lifts were very slow. We were made aware that the hotel is due a major upgrade from October 18 taking over a year. Some observations, the hotel is a little dated, the rooms need a make over and the Wi-Fi was shockingly poor. The honour bar is "odd" still playing piano music at night, with a limited evening menu. The service on the beach was amazing one day and then dreadful the next! We opted for a quick breakfast from the honour bar (it was pre-made and under a heated lamp) OK but nothing special, I at least expected to be cooked fresh and then put into a takeaway box. There are lots of staff around. Not sure if focus is on corporate events, there was a large event going on, a loud disco one night. While I understand the hotel have to offer everything, they may need to consider the impact on guests once refurbished. The only place to eat on site at night (if you wanted to be casual) was the Honour Bar and we enjoyed the fried rice, but it lacked warmth and the staff spent along time chatting to each other. The cabanas on the beach are really nice and comfy, the beds by the pool not as comfy. The lei's were a really nice touch when we arrived. We liked the hotel and wished we could have stayed longer, there is room for improvement and I hope that they can keep the feel even after the refurbishment. We would go back. It is just not ticking 5 stars, work to be done and then it really would be something special, The grounds and ponds, trees and fish are all amazing.

We stayed over July 4th holiday, and were able to participate in the Turtle release ceremony. That was an terrific experience in and of itself. The property itself is beautiful. The beach is terrific, and provides opportunity for some great snorkeling right on the property. The grounds are very well maintained, with lovely fish ponds around the property. The evening torch lighting ceremony was another thing our boys enjoyed. The rooms were fairly basic (based on cost), and a bit dated. But the overall property was well maintained and provided a very enjoyable experience for mom, dad, and two young boys.

On the first day of our trip, we awoke to news of Mauna Lani's planned extensive renovation. Oh gosh, please don't Disney-fy this place. It's perfect the way it is: Welcoming, warm and laid-back, with service that never feels forced but always feels genuine. Breezes flowing through the open atrium bring the ocean air to you as soon as you check in (even it's late at night). Our oceanfront room was perfection: not too big, Not too small, with a luxurious bathroom and a fancy commode! The bed was divine and sliding screen doors meant we fell asleep to the waves and awoke to the bird calls. The pool was big and never crowded. The multiple hot tubs meant actual privacy! The staff at the beach made snorkeling easy and fun -- directing me to the nearby bay for better fish gazing. The gym was big and well-appointment without being sterile. Oh, and that spa!!!!!! I had a massage outside by Robert and it was blissful and specific and exactly what I needed after running and then hiking Polulu Valley. Again, the staff at the gym and pool were friendly and attentive without being forced. We went for our 15th anniversary and were going to have to switch hotels for a couple of nights at the end when a tennis tournament (hey, John McEnroe!) had the place sold out. But my husband worked with the wonderful Pam, who worked her magic and found a way for us to stay our entire trip there. I can't wait to go back. Please don't add a lazy river or make this too kid-centric. It's charming and luxurious -- a rare blend.

This is a Very Good place to stay but I can't give it an excellent and here's why. The place is dated, it's stuck in the 90's. That's not to say it's not attractive almost anyplace in Hawaii is and can be. But the appearance and the layout is disjointed. And you're probably not reading this to know about the architecture; so here's what I liked. The pool and beach area were both good just don't expect to receive good service from servers operating out of the pool restaurant. They're just slow and don't check on the guests consistently. The breakfast is good with a reasonable selection of food but I've been to other Hawaiian resorts were the selection is better. The rooms are okay, nothing special. Some need updating. If you like to sit out on the balcony avoid the top floor as there isn't a roof to protect you from rain. The Canoe House restaurant is good and you'll need a reservation. What creates a special atmosphere here are the pools of fish both in the hotel and surrounding it. They are definitely worth walking around to see. During our stay there were several gentlemen walking around and discussing the property. Being in the real estate business I recognized what they were doing and understood their overheard conversations. It's time to develop and sell. And examining the other properties along this coast you can see that the competition is high. So, overall it's a very good place to stay but I'm not sure for how much longer.

My husband and I finished up our 10 night honeymoon in Hawaii at Mauna Lani, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to end our trip. Everything at Mauna Lani was perfect -- the rooms were beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and our ocean view was truly mesmerizing. I also loved that so many things were included in the daily resort fee -- the snorkeling at the beach was much better than I expected (we saw a sea turtle!!) and they even had prescription masks, which was great for us! We also took advantage of the free breakfast promotion and really appreciated the variety of foods available. I saw a lot of complaints about birds at the Bay Terrace but we didn't have an issue -- yes, there were birds, but for the most part they minded their own business. We did notice that they piped in hawk noises which was definitely an attempt to keep them at bay (pun not intended). Overall, it was an amazing trip and I can't wait to return!
