What a Vacation!

The Waikoloa Colony Villas are some of the nicest condos we have ever vacationed in, we had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. The furniture and appliances were all modern and new, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. Our unit had high ceilings and a spacious living area. This property is a gated community and is very secure for families with children. Parking was no problem. The grounds and common areas: pools, barbecues, were constantly maintained. It seemed that the gardeners worked around the clock. The Waikoloa Colony Villas are a bit removed from the center of the action of Kailua Kona area. Hint: stop at Costco, just outside of the Kona airport and stock up, otherwise you'll have to drive into town for groceries. The Kings Shop's are within walking distance, but these are mostly high-end shops, gift shops and restaurants and a Starbucks. Hawaii has some great beaches, all within a 30 minute drive, our favorite is Hapuna Beach, beautiful sand and very clean. The Villas are great place to return to after a long day of swimming, snorkeling, golfing, hiking and sightseeing. What a wonderful place, really home, to return to at the end of the day.

Hapuna Beach is a great value

Had the opportunity to finally visit Hawaii. We've been to Maui and Oahu in previous years. We enjoyed the Big Island and especially we liked the accommodations at the Hapuna Beach Prince. We were debating between the Hapuna and some of the other hotels in the area like the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. But the other hotels were simply out of our price range. Great Hawaii Vacations got us a good package with flights and a car. We had a tremendous view of the ocean from our room and we loved the beach. We spend hours upon hours just hanging out on the beach drinking mai tais.... it was very relaxing. We loved it!
Cindy Macintosh, Akron, OH

What a tremendous experience

We had the wonderul fortune of staying at the Hapuna Beach Prince. WOW!.... We stayed in a suite and was it worth every penny. This has to be one of the best hotels in the area. We just loved this. We cannot wait until to come back.
Kathy, Simi Valley, CA

AMAZING GETAWAY

This was our first time in Hawaii and we almost missed out on your beautiful resort. Our travel agent did not have a rating nor had she sent anyone there to report back. She wasn't certain if it was the place for us. But after reviewing your web site we decided it looked wonderful and made our accommodations. Wonderful does not do The Hapuna Prince justice. It was magnificent! If anyone is looking for a place that is beautiful, secluded, and very romantic yet close enough to do other activities, this is the place for you. The entire staff treated us like royalty and our room was beautiful. We toured two other islands and will return someday to Kona just because our stay at the Hapuna was like paradise.
Douglas & Christine Willey, Wattsburg, PA

Hapuna Beach is nice

Hi Great Hawaii Vacations. We got back from the Hapuna Beach Prince hotel this past August 2010. I was recommended to this the hotel by one of your agents. Eric's recommendation of the hotel was very good. The information provided was quite accurate. Although the Hapuna Beach isn't the most luxurious hotel I've ever been to, it certainly did meet my needs. It appeared that all the rooms had some sort of view of the ocean. The best part of the hotel was the beach. It's gorgeous. Although, I would have liked to stay at the Fairmont Orchid, for what I was willing to pay, the Hapuna Beach met my needs perfectly like a glove. Thanks GHV. We'll be back.
Doug P, Lauderdale, Fl

Nice Place to stay

The Beach was wonderful.....The help was nice and the room was very clean. The food was good, but kinda high in price. We had a very nice stay...LOVED THE BEACH!!!!!!!!!!

Hapuna Beach, Big Island, Is AMAZING!!!

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. From the grand reception area - open to the ocean - to the relaxing ocean view room with patio, it is exquisite. Leaving the patio doors open, we enjoyed listening to the ocean waves all night, after watching the beautiful sunsets. The hot tub and pool are easily accessible, and very nice and clean. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Upon check in, we were given chilled glasses of passion fruit juice - very refreshing after the long flight over! There is a choice of valet, outdoor, or covered parking. Even the workout facilities are filled with top-notch equipment. They definately have you, the guest, first in mind. The hotel is impeccably clean, inside and out. There are so many things to see and do on the Big Island, so rent a car and plan for at least 7 days to see it all. The price of food at the hotel restaurant is pretty steep, so we stocked our mini fridge with food from the Kona Walmart. Aside from that, if you are looking to enjoy a perfect vacation, this is the place. We will definately be returning as soon as we can!

Great Beach, Decent Rooms

My husband and I just stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, after a friend of mine suggested it. The hotel rooms are decent (nothing spectacular), but the beach in front and the views are what make this place great. We had one of the Premium Oceanview rooms, and we weren't sorry for a minute. The view was gorgeous every morning, and the beach was great for play and strolls alike. Daniel assisted us with our trip. We thought he communicated well with regard to the amenities and the overall condition of the hotel, so we weren't surprised when we arrived. The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is now on our list to consider for your next trip. Thanks again, Great Hawaii Vacations!
Farley D., Denver, CO

It's a good value

We stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince this past year. We were on the Big Island for a only a few days. We liked the hotel. It's not fancy, but the rooms were comfortable, the service was good, and the beach was awesome. We may try another hotel like the Fairmont Orchid for our next trip, but we wouldn't mind staying at the Hapuna again. For what we paid, it was a good value.
Ronda Simpson, Bellevue, WA

Great Views and Best Beach on the Big Island

Like many of the other reviews I've read here, I've always found the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel a great value. The rooms aren't what makes this hotel great. It's the great view, the lack of crowds and the spectacular beach that makes this hotel a great option. I agree that the hotel needs a little love, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a location like this at such a great price. Daniel did a great job of arranging our whole package for the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. He got everything we asked for, and we couldn't have been happier. We're looking forward to getting another trip planned here soon!
Grant N., Renton, WA

Peaceful hotel

Thank you Great Hawaii Vacations, especially Patti Taylor for suggesting the Hapuna Beach Prince. I was looking for for some R and R, this was the perfect resort. The rooms were very nice and the staff was so amazing. I was able to see beautiful sunsets from my lanai, and talk long strolls on the beach. I have already referred Great Hawaii Vacations to 3 friends and they have all been thrilled with their service!

Loved the Amenities

My husband and I stayed at the Outrigger Fairway Villas for our honeymoon This was our first time in Hawaii. We loved our stay so much that we considered purchasing a unit! We stayed in unit D4 and had a gorgeous view of the golf course. Although we are not golfers, it was fun to watch others play from our unit. The location of FV is very quaint, yet convenient. Waikoloa is about 25 miles from Kona, so having the shops nearby was a plus especially when we ran out of a food/drug items. Being in Waikoloa also made us feel like we were on a remote pristine island. Kona is a little more commercialized so staying at the resort made it really feel like a vacation! It is so quiet at night. We LOVED our unit's amenities. It felt almost like home. Although not a full scale maid service, the cleaning staff did a wonderful job with keeping it clean enough for us to do a moderate amount of cleaning but still feel like you are on vacation. Our unit was moderately decorated with a tropical/Hawaiian motif. Unfortunetly the Managers are not real accomodating when we had concerns about noisy neighbors above our unit.
KD, Tulsa, OK

Wonderful

We had a three bedroom, three bath. My two grandsons in the room with twins, my daughter and her husband the king suite and I had the queen downstairs. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable. We were at the end so the only neighbor was next door and that was only for the last two nights. This was my third trip to Hawaii and the condo was wonderful. If I ever return, I will stay at the same place.

Had a great time at the Fairmont Orchid

My wife and I had a truly terrific vacation at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island. I cannot say enough good things about the property. We loved our room which was spacious and well decorated. The pool was large and quite and it was easy to walk to the beach which was a few steps from the pool. We particularly enjoyed the casual restaurant by the pool. Most nights we would have a light dinner and enjoy the Hawaiian music of Dino. I also got a chance to use the gym at the property and the equipment was the best I have ever seen even in professional gyms. Also the treadmills faced the ocean for a lovely view while working out. Cannot wait to go back!
John, Toluca Lake, CA

Best Vacation Experience!

When we searched for a hotel, my 6 year old's desire was to see sea turtles. Not only did she see them, she swam with them. The room was gorgeous and comfortable, the pool and lagoon were wonderful as well. The food was first class, and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. Aside from donating a few golf balls to the "lava rough", we had a wonderful and relaxing time.

Favorite Hotel on the Big Island

This place is amazing. My husband and I decided to give the Orchid a try for our anniversary. We stayed at the Four Seasons Hualalai last year, but we wanted to save a little money this time around so settled on the Orchid. Are we glad we did! The rooms and service are amazing!! The Four Seasons is great, don't get me wrong, but we received comparable service and amenities at the Orchid for a fraction of the cost. The beach is fantastic, too, especially if you like to snorkel. We can't wait to go back!!
Sonya, Pacific Palisades, CA

dean, apple valley, ca

Thank you for referring us to the Fairmont Orchid for our 25th Anniversary! The stay was everything we hoped for and then some! The staff members were so professional we thought we were in a dream! I could not have asked for a better quality room or service. Thanks again! We plan to celebrate our next anniversary there as well.
Angel T., Oklahoma City, OK

I could not believe how spectacular this resort is. The Fairmont Orchid had everything I could ask for in a vacation. Friendly staff, clean updated rooms, great pool and great golf! Thanks Great Hawaii Vacations! I'll be a return guest for sure.

Oh My God!!

I decided to bring my family to the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel because I had heard that my favorite actor, Kevin Costner had stayed here some years ago while filming Water World. We were all blown away. The place is just wonderful. The service, the amenities, the beach, the rooms - everything was just top notch. I hope to return real soon. Until then, we'll have to just relive our experience through the many photos we took while we were there.

True Aloha Spirit

The Mauna Lani restores your soul. Kurt Matsumoto and the entire staff provide the ultimate spirit of Aloha to all aspects of the Hotel. From the sacred fish ponds to the turtles in the lagoon to the Canoe House restaurant nothing falls short of excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. The beach is fantastic; the spa is world class. Learn watercolor techniques from various artists daily, but the best of them all is Candace Lee. Be sure to ask for Kurt at the front desk and tell him how much you appreciate your experience, and tell him hello for Lisa and me. We will always return to our home away from home. There is no equal for the Mauna Lani experience. Come and see for yourself...you won't ever want to go anywhere else.
Donald & Lisa Breech, Victoria, TX

Paradise Found

We were lucky enough to enjoy a weeks stay with our 4 adult children at this wonderful resort. Having stayed at various high end resorts on Maui and Oahu we were more than pleased with the Mauna Lani. Everything about the resort reflects the true Hawaiian spirit...all the employees are so pleasant, the rooms beautiful, and the grounds spectacular. It was a very relaxing vacation and we hope we are able to return sometime in the near future.
Don and Tricia Miller, Costa Mesa, CA

Was I dreaming?

Mauna Lani Hotel on the Big Island is a fabulous place with competent, extremely helpful and friendly staff, outstanding ambiance without the stiffness or snootiness of an expensive hotel and with all of the naturalness and exquisite beauty that one should expect in Hawaii. The hotel staff is well trained and the rooms and interior and exterior areas placed and designed for incredible views and natural beauty. This hotel is a top resort in the country with the number one spa in Hawaii and has won a green award! I just celebrated my birthday there with my husband and I can't say enough good about Mauna Lani. Thank you to all who made this a most memorable birthday.

What can you say

It was between this and the Hilton. We chose this because Susanne @ Great Hawaii Vacations said this would be a much better choice for my honeymoon. And it was. The grounds, the facilities, the beach - ALL A+. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for the best. It was a trip of a lifetime. I hope I can save up enough money to get down there again.
Eric, Irving, TX

Luxury at its BEST

The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel was the first property that we stayed at on the Big Island. I have to say "what was I waiting for?" The renovations were superb, the views breathtaking, my husband couldn't say enough about the golf courses, the beach was beautiful, our room and view were beyond perfect as well as the lounge, restaurants and the property overall. Kavan at Great Hawaii Vacations got us a great rate on not only the property but the airfare and car rental as well. Thanks for fulfilling your comittment to personalized service and helping us find luxury at its best!!
Lisa Jennings, Ogden, UT

Newly Renovated and Nicer Than I Remember

This was my first time back to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in about 8 years. A friend of mine had booked with Great Hawaii Vacations for an April trip and really enjoyed his stay, so I followed suit and booked. The room makeover was great, and tastefully redone with the Mauna Kea flair (think orange!). The beach is still wonderful, the food still great. The service was above average. I am now seeing that rates are coming down on this hotel, and I will be going back would recommend this property for any couple looking for an above average resort experience in Hawaii.
Flynn B., Reno, NV

A True Surprise

Never having stayed on the Big Island, We were truly surprised at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. We were told of the renovations but did not expect the 5star luxury that we found. OUTSTANDING!!! Following suit with 5star luxury were the 10star views. The beach and shorline were amazing. The property overall was perfect. Patti at Great Hawaii Vacations made sure we had the best deal and we have to say the it was way above our expectations. Thanks for the personal service and helping us find our 'Perfect Vacation in Paradise.'

Mauna Kea is simply lovely

When I was a child, our family used to stay at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. After the earthhquake, I was saddened. Luckily, my new husband and I had a chance to go back to the hotel. They did a really, really nice job. I was very impressed. The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is simply the best.
Sara Davies, Boston, MA

Best Beach!

We recently stayed at the Mauna Kea for our first time since the hotel rennovations. The rooms were quite nice! The same beautiful beach .. and friendly staff. Mauna Kea will continue to be our favorite!!

Great Place for a great price!

The Vista Waikoloa was a wonderful place to stay on vacation. The condos are deluxe, beautifully and comfortable furnished. Windows all around with a terrific view of Anaehomalu Bay. The units have ceiling fans and air-conditioning. It's only a 5-minute walk to the white sand beach. Great for swimming and snorkeling. We saw lots of tropical fish and turtles. The property is within walking distance of the King's Shops, several excellent restaurants (we recommend Roy's). Vista Waikoloa is so conveniently located. Hapuna Beach, Mauna Kea, Mani Lani and the airport are all within a 1/2 hour drive. If you don't want to drive, the property is within walking distance of the Marriott, the King's Shops, golfing and the beach. The King's Shops has both shops and restaurants (we recommend Roy's). This is one of the nicest resorts we have stayed at on the Big Island. They are beautifully maintained and private. We heartily recommend the Big Island and Vista Waikoloa.
Maryanne, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Our favorite vacation

We have stayed at the Vista on two occasions and are planning on another visit on the 22nd of July. Our first condo was A204 which faced the ocean but our favorite is B201. The furnishings are great and the master bedroom is huge. We love the private balcony off the bedroom as it is shaded by very tall palms. The balcony faces the pool but you can see the ocean off to the right. We enjoy having our breakfast and dinner out there and enjoy the beautifuly flowers that drape over the railing. My husband uses the workout room daily and I take my walks all around Waikiloa. We love the beach at A Bay. Our granddaughters now think of this place as their second home. The grounds are beautiful and the people delightful. We love to walk to Kings Shops and are looking forward to the new Queens' Marketplace. Can't wait for July 22nd. Aloha
Prue, Sacramento, CA

A great place to stay

We loved the condo at Vista Waikoloa. We were only able to stay 1 week, but enjoyed our stay. We had a condo that had a view of the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only draw back was our A/C didn't work correctly so we sleep one night with the doors open. The traffic was going all night, we pulled the fan from the closet, kept it on at night, slept like a baby. As for the condo it's self, very roomy, everything else worked nicely. The grounds are beautiful. We did not report the A/C since we had a fan, but I am sure that staff would have gotten right on it. Access to ocean very easy, we walked it every day. We will be going back, loved it that much.

Very Classy Condo

Just arrived home after spending a lovely week at the Mauna Lani Terrace. My husband and I enjoyed the large two bedroom overlooking the pool and the beach 100 yards away. This condo was well appointed with a Tommy Bahama look and felt very newly decorated. The kitchen and the wonderful grills at the private poolside, allowed my husband to cook to his hearts content. Most of the time I just made reservations at every four star restaurant on this "gold coast" of the Big Island. There are a lot of them, all super romantic, especially at night. The beaches were rather small but uncrowded and adequate. The beaches offered full bars with waitresses and incredible snorkling. The grounds are immaculate and excellent golfing on the property. Next time I'm going to invite my sister and her husband, with two and a half baths, it will be comfy and classy. PS.. the Muana Lani Terrace is owned by a Japanese corporation... you should try the sashimi at their sushi bar, it was incredible!

Great Place

My sister and I spent a wonderful week at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott. After reading one of the reviews, I was concerned that we would have to pay for our in room safe as was stated. The instruction sheet that comes with the safe does say that there is a charge to use it, however, when I called the front desk to ask what the charge was, I was told that there was no charge. Our package came with breakfast daily which made it a really nice bargain. The breakfast buffet was very extensive and had a wonderful outdoor atmosphere. We had an ocean front room and were very pleased with it. The hotel is on a beautiful stretch of beach and we saw green sea turtles daily. The hotel is the perfect size, not one of the huge intimidating hotels that are in the area. The shops are very nice and the staff was very polite and happy to answer any questions. We skipped the Luau (every Sunday and Wednesday) having been to one on a previous trip. However, when the entertainment started, we sat at the pool and enjoyed the show. Having Ocean Sports on site was very convenient to book our Whale watching and sunset cruise. Another convenience is the small shopping area just across the street where you can easily walk to. There is a food court with very reasonably priced food along with higher end restaurants. This is a very nice spot to stock up on anything you might need. I recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for a beautiful, relaxing and quiet stay. The hotel is tastefully decorated and a pleasure to stay at.

Great Resort, Only One in Waikoloa on the Beach!

Aloha! My husband and I took our two kids to the Big Island for the first time, and we weren't sure where to stay. We considered the Hilton up the road, but your agent (Daniel) let us know there's no beach there, and the sand and waves are a requirement for us. We wanted a family-friendly place to stay, and the Waikoloa Beach Marriott worked out well for us. The rooms are nicely updated, but nothing special (after all, it's a Marriott). The well-maintained grounds, great pool areas and the beach really make this resort great, along with the great rates Daniel gave us. We had so much fun on the beach, and really enjoyed the restaurants on-resort. I also got some time at the day spa, which was much needed after a long school year. Thank you again, Great Hawaii Vacations, and we look forward to working with Daniel next summer!
Wendy G., Reno, Nevada

The property was absoluately wonderful. I was impressed with the beauty and how well it is maintained. The pools ,hot tubs and water silde(not just for chrildren) are terrific. The pics on the web site DO NOT give it justice. Everyone is freindly and helpful. There are two upscale shopping centers across the street with plently of variety. I would definity stay again.

One of my favorite trips to the islands!

Loved the Waikoloa Beach Marriott. "A" Bay Beach is amazing .. great swimming & snorkeling, saw green sea turtles everyday! Pool was nice .. could relax at the pool and hear the music from the luau. Strolling by the ancient fishponds was very cool! the Kings Shops across the way had some fun shops & yummy restaurants. Hotel staff was friendly .. all around great time once again! thank you Great Hawaii Vacations .. Patti Taylor & all the staff! We will definetly be calling you next year!

Waikoloa Beach Marriott is a very good value

We had the opportunity to stay between the Waikoloa Beach Marriott and the Hilton Waikoloa Village. We're glad that we chose the Marriott. Don't get me wrong, the Hilton looked amazing. But, for us, the smaller hotel worked out much better. Plus, the beach in front of the hotel was really nice. We enjoyed our stay.

Great Value!

I so enjoyed my stay at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott. "A" beach, the beach at the Marriott is very nice. I enjoyed seeing the Green Sea Turtles each day. The restaurants are nice and not overly priced. We walked to the Hilton next door to swim with the dolphins. And enjoyed walking to the Kings Shops!
