Busy Weekend, But Found Relaxation At Hotel
AgyK, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Wed Jul 13 09:30:17 EDT 2016
Hundreds of people, including news media, come to watch the annual 4th of July release of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles into the ocean. Although at full hotel capacity, there was not ever a feel of being overcrowded or rushed. The ambiance was NEVER compromised ~ I don't know how this luxury hotel does it! The complete staff was extraordinary. Our rooms had complimentary house slippers, bottled water and daily newspaper. Bath robes were a nice touch! Since 1989 the hotel has received juvenile turtles from a marine conservation center on Oahu to raise in its salt water ponds as part of a conservation program. The turtles are nurtured until they are ready to be released into the wild. The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle is listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. More>

Mauna Lani is the best

I was thinking of all the nice extras that come with this hotel, making it a value. I can set the temperature of the shower, not just the blue-red meter, but I set the actual temperature, plus they have hand-held nozzles with good water pressure. Morning paper free. Valet parking free. The food is pricey, but everything is gourmet. Even the cheeseburgers: grass fed island beef, organic locally grown lettuce and tomatoes, homemade buns. Best burger anywhere. Free classes - Cat went to an ukulele class and a lei making class. Free beach equipment, snorkel, fins, kayak, paddle boards, etc. It’s all free. Free shuttle service to anywhere and that includes Kona town, shopping, other hotels, restaurants, or other parts of the beach. Free Hawaiian bottled water replenished daily. Large balconies. Comfy beds and excellent pillows. Plus, all the usual and expected stuff like bug screen television, bathrobes and slippers. Even the door key is modern: all we do is flash the door key at the lock and it opens. Take all that (and more) and surround it with lush vegetation, turtle, shark, and fish ponds, super friendly people, and, of course, a white sandy beach, and you have the ideal hotel experience. BTW - my wife loved the spa experience. More>

Idyllic Property, Memorable Service, Hearty Brunch
imanahan, Los Angeles, California
Mon Jul 11 21:38:37 EDT 2016
I've been to the Hawaiian Islands five times (and counting!), and the Mauna Lani feels exactly like the type of hotel I'd always imagined there would be here. Picturesque -- Koi fish and lily pads at the hotel entrance, turtles and a waterfall at the back pond, grassy knolls, walking trails and bridges, cabanas on the sand. It's a massive property. They have activities every day, at almost every hour. I got to participate in beachside yoga for just $16. Also got to see green sea turtles who got released back into the ocean over the holiday! Had a massage at the spa -- the best one ever, I have to add, as it was outside where I could hear the waves and birds and wind. It was something like like $240 maybe, but I got a discount for being a hotel guest. Breakfast was delicious, hearty, lots of choices. Beautiful view from the restaurant. Service there and at the front desk were both amazing. They remembered us each morning and always shared the aloha spirit! More>

Lovely Hawaiian feeling. Upscale and relaxed but birds at brunch

Love this place and plan to go back! Great all the way around. Wonderful setting, staff and Hawaiian cultural respect. I hope they can find a way to keep the birds out of the terrace food area. Brunch is amazing but being concerned about the birds landing on your plate isn't relaxing or really sanitary. And I'm not a germ freak. Probably better to just eat inside and enjoy the gorgeous view from there. More>

The Turtle Independence Day
9bigmike9, Redwood City, California
Fri Jul 08 10:53:00 EDT 2016
We spent a week at this hotel. It is an older property but well maintained and the rooms are very pleasant and well appointed. With separate dual sinks, great air, balconies. The people are very pleasant and helpful. The shuttle takes you all over the property to the fitness club, the shopping center, the golf club, to the historic Hawaiian culture park located on the property. The BB was very complete and the breakfast area was very pleasant. The fitness center is a delight with gym, tennis courts, spa and a beautiful lap pool. The hotel supports a Hawaiian cultural center. Negatives are--there is no casual dining facility, you either have dinner at the pool side bar or go to the fancy and pricey Canoe House restaurant. They have pleasant live Hawaiian music in the mail lobby but you can't be served drinks there. The service at the prime restaurant is kinda spotty, they were not cooperative about serving cocktails so we could watch the sunset.Reception at the Canoe House was not the same as the rest of the hotel but the food was good (and expensive). It was a nice trip but don't forget the Hawaiian taxes on hotels and rental cars, really expensive. More>
