Our stay at the Islands of Mauna Lani was simply wonderful! I can't really say enough great things about our experience there. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and our condo was stocked with everything we needed and more. They really go out of their way to make sure that your stay is ideal. For example, their check out time is normally 10:00 AM, but when we told them that our flight out didn't leave until 4:00 PM, they accommodated us with a late check out time of 1:30 PM.
The resort is gated, so we felt very safe and secure throughout our stay. Each unit has it's own garage, as far as I could tell, so you don't have to worry about your rental car getting scratched up while you're parked. There is also a private recreation center with a pool, whirlpool and grilling facilities.
There are several excellent restaurants nearby, but we also had a very fully stocked kitchen and propane grill available to cook our own meals. The Foodland grocery store at the resort is reasonably priced (by Hawaii standards), but be sure to register for their Maika'i card, which will save you about 33%. By the way, the staff at Foodland is also exceptionally friendly.
We had planned to snorkel at numerous beaches during our trip, but discovered that the semi-private beach at this resort was so perfect, there was really no need to go elsewhere. If you visit there, you'll understand what I mean.
All things considered, I can't imagine finding a better place to stay.

The two of us had a great time here during our October stay. The room was large with very nice finishes and it had a good view of the ocean across the fairway. It was very quiet. The private beach was small but nice and not crowded. Swimming and snorkeling are good at this beach. The grocery store in the resort had everything needed for making meals in the condo. The resort grounds were well maintained and car and people traffic were light. This is a great place for couples looking for a relaxing atmosphere.

We stayed here for two weeks for our tenth anniversary and received friendly and helpful service at all times. The restaurant was excellent and the beach was one of the top four in the area. Our pool lounging was relatively low key and quiet with plenty of shade available and a variety of pools to chose from. We had a fantastic luau experience and the view from our room was exceptional. There were lots of fun activities and restaurants in the area as well. We look forward to our return.

We had a great experience staying at your hotel. The only complaint that I can think of was the bed gave me a backache for a few nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only other negativity I can think of is I thought the breakfast could have been a bit better and maybe a bit more selections.

The condo was beautiful and well-furnished. However, there was a severe ant problem that prevented us from being able to use the kitchen very much because we were constantly killing ants and wiping them up. It was too bad because otherwise, the condo was perfect.
