U.S. News Review

Like its name implies, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel is privy to one of the best beaches on the Kohala Coast, offering easy access to aquatic activities like bodysurfing, cliff diving and (if you're lucky) swimming with sea turtles. But you don't have to stray too far from the hotel itself to experience the benefits of a Hawaiian getaway. Sharing a large swath of coastline with its sister hotel, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel offers visitors access to an 18-hole championship golf course (designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay), as well as the soothing treatments offered at the Hapuna Spa. Although some travelers note that a stay at this hotel will set you back a good chunk of change, many agree that the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel lives up to its rates. The property's 350 guest rooms and suites are outfitted in relaxed island decor and come with private furnished lanais (balconies). And previous visitors say that the fresh seafood served at the on-site restaurants is delicious (albeit expensive). But for many travelers, the highlight of this Big Island hotel was the excellent customer service.
