The hotel was at 90% capacity when we stayed there but was not the least bit crowded. It is located right on the gorgeous Hapuna beach, which is on the sunny side of the island. The food (although pricey) and service were excellent. A shuttle runs everyday from 5:30-9:50 to the Mauna Kea resort, where we went to dinner one night and had the best mahi mahi ever. This was an incredible resort; will definitely return.
This hotel is blissfully peaceful... No conventioneers marring the landscape( they don't have the facilities to accommodate them). Mauna Lani has some of the most beautiful landscapes on the big Island with the ancient fish ponds edging a white sand beach. Simple, not overdone. The food is overpriced but what else is new! Lovely staff.
I just got back from a 6 day trip here with my 6 year old son. It was perfect. The hotel, the Makai room in Lagoon tower, the amenities, the weather, the staff, everything was top notch. We couldn't have had a better time! There is plenty to do here for kids and adults. We had no problem catching a boat to the other side of the resort when needed and my son thought it was really neat that we could do that. The KPC restaurant was spectacular and so was the breakfast in the mornings. I found the whole resort to be very accommodating to my gluten free diet and my son's nut allergy. We loved exploring the tide pools on the beaches and going down the waterslides. We had fun at the Luau as well. My son also loved his Dolphin Quest experience. Definitly worth it to have an ocean view room in the Lagoon tower, not only for the view but for the location to everything on resort.
If I had to say anything negative it would be the pools are kept waaaaaaay too cold to be comfortable or enjoyable and the restaurants range from poor to mediocore to excellent. It would be nice if they were all good across the board. The chinese restaurant and japanese restaurant for the price was not worth it. But the Lagoon Grill and KPC were fantastic. I didn't see the need for the $25 per day resort fee on top of all that we pay in hotel rooms and spending money at the resort all week at restaurants and extras. It seems excessive and it would be nice to see that do away with that.
Happy to be back to this hotel. Expedia's prices were better than the hotel was quoting. Our room was huge, fresh, great lanai, and marvelous view. Self parking was very close, a luxury in Hawaii. Pool one of the nicest ever.
Everything was 10. I loved my solo vacation here. It was my first visit to Hawaii and what I was looking for was a break from everything. The pool was nice everyday. Many hot tubs. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was awesome. I didn't need much but for the things I asked they were very accomodating.

The staff were welcoming, professional and the most friendly and attentive we've experienced at a condo resort. They quickly responded to any requests, set up an air mattress in our room, and offered many nice touches including chocolates upon arrival and complimentary DVD rentals. The facilities were well attended to, and the care of staff was evident. Our condo was exceptionally clean. The condo was well-equipped, but a bit dated throughout. Perfectly comfortable.
