Recent Mauna Lani reviews

  • Loved it all. Peaceful and relaxing vacation.

    "This was our first stay in the Mauna Lani area. We stayed in G201 from 3/20-3/26 and loved every minute of it. My DH even said upon entering “If I had known the place was so nice, we could’ve stayed here the whole time.” (Before arriving here, we stayed in Volcano for 3 nights.) I will say I wanted to stay closer to the water but the view from the lanai was great. We could see the ocean and sometimes hear the waves. The only issue I had was that sounds from the lanais seemed to echo off the other buildings. This is a low density complex which never ever seemed crowded. Several times we felt we had the place to ourselves. This unit was huge for a one bedroom. Nice big kitchen, roomy living area and 2 full bathrooms. The couch makes into a bed, although we didn’t use it. I was thinking we could bring along one of our nieces next time and they could have the couch and their own bathroom. The bed was comfy and waking up to seeing palm trees outside was always a treat. We did have an issue with ants in the kitchen. When I called about them, we were brought ant traps. These seemed to work well, but we would still occasionally see ants here and there. No big deal to us. We kept all food in the fridge. Lots of towels available, but only one real beach towel. You know the kind of long and colorful towels you take to the beach. We discovered later that bigger “beach towels” were in the unit, but they were white. This is one thing I think they could improve upon. We did like having a washer and dryer in the unit and used it a few times. There was laundry detergent already there and available. The terraces are a quick walk to Makaiwa Bay and the beach. They have cabanas and loungers for use. The snorkeling here is some of the best I’ve ever experienced. Lots and lots of fish in very clear water once you are about 25 yards from the beach. Snorkel early in the day for the best conditions. We went one afternoon and the water was a little choppy. The adjacent fish ponds make for a nice relaxing walk around the area. It’s also a nice walk over to the Mauna Lani Hotel for drinks and dinner. The pool and BBQ area were rarely busy. I went to the pool 3 times and had it all to myself. BBQs you can reserve time at or they have a grill and go BBQ if you don’t want to eat there. There’s a Foodland grocery store about a mile away. They have a nice deli and fresh food selections if you don’t want to cook. What I was missing was an ABC store, but it’s about"

  • Awesome Townhome

    "We stayed in the Villa for a fantastic week and enjoyed every moment of it. What we loved best about our vacation was that "at-home" feeling. Besides the amount of space we had - over 2000 sq feet for the 3 of us, we loved the fact that we had both levels to ourselves. We don't like living on top nor below another family. We only had neighbors to the side of us and never did we once hear any of them! The layout is amazing with the bedrooms located upstairs while the living space was on the lower level. The gourmet kitchen is large and has everything needed (note to self: No need to pack spices, aluminum foil and plastic wrap in the future). The kitchen had everything imaginable! We particularly enjoyed the Viking Grill on the Lanai and used it frequently. We picked up Steaks, Chicken, and Salad from Costco and supplement it with locally grown fruits for a delicious dinner. Having a washer / drying in the villa was great as we were able to do laundry every few days. Although this was our first time to the Big Island, it won't be our last. In the past, we've vacationed primarily in Maui. But having now spent 2 weeks on the BI, we can honestly say that we enjoy the BI as much, if not more than Maui. We love the serenity, the quaintness and the laid-back lifestyle of the Big Island. We loved the Farmer's Markets particularly for the hard-to-find island fruits like Cherimoya, Jackfruit, and Soursop (which btw, is hard to find on Maui). While the BI is big and driving is required to the beaches, markets and shops (only the Shops at Mauna Lani are within walking distance), we got used to driving to where we needed to get to. We really liked the location of the Mauna Lani Fairways as it allowed us to get to Waikoloa, Waimea, Hilo, Kalapana, and Kona easily via the Hawaii Belt Road or Saddle Road. It was also very close to some of the best golf courses in Hawaii. We purchased a Hawaii Golf Deals Card and used it extensively at the 3 Waikoloa Courses, Hapuna and at Mauna Kea. We had a fantastic time on the Big Island of Hawaii and our accomodations added so much more to our vacation. We wanted a place where we would enjoy hanging out and not just a place to "come back and crash". It's a little piece of heaven right in paradise!"

  • Wonderful Hawaiian Vacation

    "My boyfriend and I just returned from a wonderful week's stay on the Big Island. Being somewhat of a "clean freak", it's challenging for me to find a place that feels like home. Dave and Chris's place surpassed my expectations. The condo is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to cook at home and enjoy meals on the beautiful lanai. I was happy to find a boogie board and beach chairs for beach excursions. Unexpected and appreciated!! We rented a larger condo in Mauna Lani last year and Bennett was our concierge as well at that property. You couldn't ask for a more gracious, helpful host. He has a wealth of information regarding restaurants and sightseeing possibilities. All in all a very special vacation. We hope to be back next year! Aloha!"
