  • Very Lovely and Relaxing

    by tropicalsun33 on 2019-06-25 03:24 pm

    Beach! Beach! Beach!.No charge for chairs and umbrellas and even crowded was not a problem. Had a lovely room in the Beach Wing, 4th floor, thanks Nalu and Diane. People are very nice. Shelly a great waitress at the Copper Bar. We had 2 delicious dinners at the Copper Tree which was a scampi one night and shrimp another with the most delicious risotto ever. Did have ribs one night, tough and under cooked. Martinis way too expensive. More that high end restaurants. Manta pretty good, again a great risotto and pasta. The biggest disappointment were two things. 1st, we are Mai tai aficionados. These were the worst. made with a premade mix all over the hotel. had guava and mango, too thick and the Meyer's float was undetectable. And VERY expensive. Now the Hau Tree restaurant and bar. right on the beach. perfect setting. Staff at bar, just great. Food- terrible by our standards. We eat Ceviche all the time and this was some concoction that not only had a bad piece of fish, but some creme sauce. We are all for fusion, but! Bad Humus, terrible fish tacos, tasteless, thin tasteless chips and taco shells. Cesar salad with barely detectable chicken. It was a loss that we couldn't count that into the already small number of restaurants to pick from. Went to Hapuna 2 nights. great food. We would come back if they fix the mai tais and do something about the food at Hau Tree. Otherwise may have to pass. But love that beach!! I do recommend this hotel.

  • Beautiful location, would have expected nicer room

    by honolulutraveler on 2019-06-23 08:34 am

    Was really excited to stay at this Autograph Collection hotel for work. Nice 45 minute drive from airport. It really is a beautiful hotel right on the beach. Loved watching the manta rays feed in the evening. Hotel was very relaxed and staff was great. My only potentially negative comment is that for the price of the room I would have expected more for the guest rooms. My room had a great view of the golf course and peek a boo view of the ocean, but I like rooms with carpet and this room had hard tile flooring throughout.

  • A week of paradise. Mauna Kea is Amazing.

    by masonm395 on 2019-06-23 00:12 am

    1) Best Beach I have ever been to
    2) Top 3 hotel I have stayed at in Hawaii, along with Andaz and Montage on Maui
    3)Service and food and drinks were top notch
    4)We had beachfront room and it was perfect
    5) They accommodated my celiac disease and had gluten free options everywhere
    6) Hotel is perfectly designed to where beach and bar and hotel are so close to each other
    7) We stayed 4 days and left for Oahu and turtle bay on north shore and hated it so much we left after one night to fly back and return to Mauna Kea because we loved it so much.

    Only negative is that the pool needs a major update and if I could give them any advice I would build an adults only pool while renovating the main pool. Andaz pools >>>>

    We loved our stay and can't wait to come back every year. We were overwhelmed with how much we really enjoyed Mauna Kea and the Big Island.

  • Perfect Hawaiian Destination

    by oklatraveler13 on 2019-06-17 05:34 pm

    My wife and I stumbled across the Mauna Kea last year when we were on an extended vacation and we had issues at another resort on the Big Island. We fell in love with the Mauna Kea. It's a perfect location, with a perfect beach, it has a neat history and storied past. We loved it so much that we returned this year with another couple, both of us celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect anniversary and the other couple traveling with us on our return trip, agreed as well. We will definitely return many more times in the future. The general manager (Kansas Henderson) and his staff have hit a home run!

  • Blue Hawaii

    by StefFul on 2019-06-16 06:52 pm

    Since every time we drive onto the property, I start humming that song-Blue Hawaii. Stunning grounds, trees, flowers, beach, and ocean. Ocean view room worth the extra money. Watch the swimmers, paddle-boarders, etc. from your balcony. Good food, great hospitality, friendly cleaning staff, fast service. Family oriented. You do have to be in good shape, not easy for handicapped folks like me. Quite a walk to rooms, the beach, etc.
