We stayed here Feb 8-13 in a South Tower partial ocean view room which had a wonderful view of the ocean. During our vacation Feb1-13 we also stayed @ the Fairmont Orchid and Marriott Waikoloa Ocean Club. This was our favorite resort that we stayed at. Firstly, when you walk in the lobby it takes your breath away, what a gorgeous view! Our room was well appointed and the balcony was private and well furnished also loved the paddle racks to hang your wet items on. The toilet sure was fancy. Housekeeping was excellent! It was nice to have an adult only infinity edge pool with floaties to use and the lounge chairs were comfy by the pool. Plenty of towels and cold water by the pools. The hot tub next to the pool was also nice. We ate at Meridia and thought the food was delicious and enjoyed eating outside as the sun was setting. The food service was wonderful! The beach is awesome with comfy lounge chairs and umbrellas if you desire. All staff was friendly and kind to us and made us feel welcome to stay at this fantastic resort. We only heard construction noise minimally when we were on the beach our last day which was no biggie. We were fortunate as I've read reviews where others described it as very noisy. We will for sure return here for another visit. Thanks Westin Hapuna Beach Resort for making our stay so enjoyable!!

Construction ongoing.

Now owned by the Marriott oligopoly, with a computer system that recognizes no data from the recently acquired Starwood group: ready, fire, aim! We were "upgraded" to a room that I luckily discovered was next to the ongoing construction. We would have had jackhammers, drills, and truck noise from 9 to 5 every day but Sunday. They changed our room and apologized, but I noticed they were still putting unwitting guests in the construction area. The staff are all wonderful people, but upper management gets a D+.

Bird poop on my wife's white sweater led to the discovery that pigeons were roosting on the ledges around the 4 skylights over the breakfast area. I looked up and saw 2 pigeons' butts right above my plate. They carry serious diseases.

I notified the Health Dept and management. Ron of management was very responsive and kept my review from being 2 star. He said he would place spiked strips to prevent them roosting on the ledges.

A luxury hotel with some problems
Reviewed 3 days ago

Many have commented on the quality of this hotel including its location, layout, beach, ground, etc., all of which are justified. However the hotel is not without some problems. The housekeeping, for one, is not up to speed. Dust is collected in many places (phone, cocktable, etc.) in the room when we checked in and never cleaned in the 7 days we stayed. Daily amenities such as water, bagged coffee, were not re-supplied in a number of days. Another issue is with its signature restaurant, Meridia. Although the food is tasty and ambience great, the service is not up to speed. For the most part the staff are not particularly warm and servers inattentive (we sat at our table for 20 minutes without any server showing up and finally we called the manager, who filled our orders). These kind of things should not have happened in a five-star hotel.

Hapuna Prince Becomes a King!
Reviewed 3 days ago

The spirit of Aloha wafts through the Hapuna Prince Resort where we have stayed for the past five years. Westin has recently taken over the hotel and updated the resort. It is hard to update fabulous, but Westin has managed to make this lovely hotel even nicer!
Hapuna Beach stands apart as a long sandy beach on the Big Island. The resort's location fronting the beach is magnificent and provides easy access to all of the beach and ocean activities. The hotel provides beach umbrellas and chairs and towels at both the beach and the pools. Their olympic pool is one of the longest pools we have ever seen and now there is now a new lovely and quiet adult Infinity pool.
The rooms are updated and modern. Everything is super clean and sparkling and the bathrooms are spacious and gleaming.
We had a beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean.
Westin has retained many of the old staff who truly make you feel the spirit of Aloha. The dining room hostess,, Ginger is warm and welcoming along with many of her colleagues. Down at the beach and pool, many of the old staff like Maka, are still there providing tips about the ocean and making your day extra pleasant.
Don't miss the brunch in the airy dining room overlooking the ocean or the casual dining area down at the pool facing the sunset!

Luxe Beach Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

The views (mountain and ocean) are spectacular, the in-house restaurants are good and the access to the beach all that could be asked for. The rooms are large, quiet and immaculately kept with up to date furnishings and very comfortable beds. The indoor-outdoor reception area with its own broad view of the ocean horizon gives the arriving guests a dazzling introduction to the place. A single regret: the hotel is building a new tower of rooms that diminishes or eliminates entirely the ocean view of one of its original wings.
