Nice . . . But dated

Posted Mar 27, 2015
The Islands are big town homes with garages and plenty of room to spread out. Our teen and preteen daughters liked the separate bedroom with tv and bath for getting away from their parents for awhile. The on property pool is nice and the nearby semi private beach with comfortable cabanas is great for swimming, snorkeling, and paddle boarding. If you want bigger waves for boogie boarding, Hapuna beach is a short drive to the north. However, the unit we stayed in did not live up to the interior pictures on the Expedia site. The decor was dated, the appliances on their last legs, and much of the bathroom tile needed to be replaced. Also, the check in process was confusing. There is an unmarked building behind the security station as you enter Manu Lani where you are supposed to check in, but no one told us that.

家族4人で3泊しました。 とても豪華で綺麗なところでした。 電子レンジがなかったので少し減点で、1日目は食洗機の中も片付けてくれてましたが、他の日はそのままでした。 フロントがわかりずらく、ホテルなどで聞いてもまったく行き着けず、娘がスマホで検索してやっとたどり着きました。 家族みんな方向音痴なので部屋に帰る道も何度も間違えました。 中の景色が似ているので間違いやすいかもしれません。 洗濯機や乾燥機の終わりの合図の音が大きくてびっくりしました。 シャワーも固定式なので、少し残念。 でも、また泊まりたい。 ビーチも綺麗で、今度はポイントの方に泊まればビーチも近いので、そちらもいいなって思いました。 夕日を見ながらホテルのレストランで食事をしたかったのですが、夕日の時間以外でもいっぱいで予約は取れませんでした。 ホテルに宿泊している方が優先だそうです。 早くに日本から予約しないと取れないようです。

This is the second year we have stayed in this complex first year was in the M unit condos which were fabulous, This year we were in Q3 which was clean but a little tired and very minimally supplied with a outdated microwave and TV's. Overall a very nice complex but we were disappointed with this particular unit.

Fantastic condo

Posted Nov 8, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed in a two bedroom condo with another couple. Both bedrooms were spacious with huge en-suite bathrooms and private lanais. This particular unit was well appointed and decorated and we felt right at home during our five night stay. The Islands are very close to the Shops at Mauna Lani. We had access to the Beach Club a short drive away. I would definitely return.

Pros: The staff, the beach, the facilities. In short, everything!
Cons: Nothing, as far as I'm concerned. Our unit had some signs of wear & tear, but I just consider that to be 'lived in'.
Location: Beaches and golf courses are everywhere. Lava Lava Beach Club was our favorite restaurant. Pololu Valley on the north shore is worth the drive.
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.

Great value in Mauna Lani

Posted Aug 13, 2014 on Hotels
The condo units are spacious and well-equipped with a great kitchen, laundry and bathrooms. Comfortable beds for four. Location is a bit isolated within the Mauna Lani resort but close to everything. Not affiliated with the hotels on the property!

The apartment M1 was fabulous and well appointed.

Posted Apr 6, 2014
The cleaning crew was great and cleaned the apartment every day which is amazing. The best beach in Hawaii ie Hapunna beach is just a few minutes in the car. The place is very peaceful and perfect to relax after an exciting day. Shopping center is walking distance. The beac h club was fun as well . Will stay again

This was a condo property at the Mauna Lani Resort, on the Kona side of the Big Island near Waikoloa, about 20-30 minutes north of the airport. There are probably other properties that are closer to more shopping and restaurants, but this was still pretty close to most of those areas (5-10 minute drive by car), and the seclusion of the resort was fantastic.
