Overview

Guests loved location right next to the beach
Valet parking not included in daily resort fee
Like its name implies, the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort is adjacent to one of best beaches on the Kohala Coast, offering easy access to aquatic activities like bodysurfing and snorkeling. The hotel also offers visitors access to an 18-hole championship golf course, as well as the soothing treatments offered at the Hapuna Spa. The property's guest rooms and suites are outfitted in understated island decor and come with private furnished lanais (balconies). By far, guest's favorite part of their experience was the close proximity to the beach and the service didn't hurt either. Many guests say the staff they encountered were both friendly and helpful, but the on-site restaurants get mixed reviews.

More reasonably priced than its neighbor resorts, this hotel occupies the northern corner of the largest sand beach on the Big Island. All of the rooms face the ocean, creating an expansive property with long walking distances.

For the ultimate underwater experience, rent fins, masks and snorkels from the beach club next to the 6,858-square-foot Hapuna Beach pool, and head out to the rocky points at either end of the beach in the early morning, when the water is calm and crystal clear.

The 8,000-square-feet Hapuna Villa, a four-bedroom residence with butler service and pool, is another hidden gem, albeit one that starts at a princely $7,000 a night.
