We had our Family Gathering at the Mauna Kea resort for the second straight year. We have a large Family, twenty eight, plus four Friends. The resort goes out of their way to take care of us in every way. We have planned events every night including Pajama Night, Ugly Christmas Sweater Night and the big event is Kareoke Night which are all held in different venues in the resort. Every morning they reserve a large table for us which is a great treat for all of us. The Breakfast Buffet is fantastic with the everyday day a new Smoothie Flavor, made to order omlettes, Waffles, and always fresh Banana Bread. The Pool Staff, Beach Staff, Wait Staff, Housekeeping, and Management are all so Professional and Friendly. All in All it’s a great Family event. We look forward to our return next year.

My wife and I stayed at this resort to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful (especially Gregory Silva). The resort was clean and easy to navigate. The restaurants were amazing. The pool was not overly crowded and the beach was spacious enough. They have a market store where snacks and quick meals could be bought. Also, the trails nearby make for good sunset spots. Highly recommend!

We spent 5 lovely October nights in a deluxe ocean view room. The balcony let us watch the sunsets each evening and the bathroom had its own balcony so you could shower while watching the surf. This is definitely a 5 star resort on the big island.

"Great Brunch"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 12, 2019 NEW
About a 40 minute drive north from Kona we visited this hotel for brunch. The food, service, view, and atmosphere were all perfect. On the terrace over looking the ocean with wonderful service and food, it was certainly worth the drive to this picture perfect hotel. Was it a bit pricey? Sure, but when one get's the opportunity to fully enjoy life, take it.

"Beautiful rooms!"

I absolutely love the Mauna Kea autograph. The rooms and views are gorgeous and service is top notch. Healani at the front desk really made my first impression here very positive with cold beverages, cold towel, and a lei, not to mention such great service and full of aloha. I went out to find the ice machine and a passing housekeeper quickly assisted me in finding an ice machine. They also go around asking for turndown service. I will be back!
