Happy at the Mauna Kea Beach HotelPosted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: huge room, comfy bed, great view, art collection, pool.
Cons: Restaurant's are expensive and service at them inattentive.
Location: Hotel Beach lovely but lots of waves, 2 miles away Spencer Beach PERFECTLY calm and good for swimming and snorkeling, especially for young kids.
Happy to be back to this hotel. Expedia's prices were better than the hotel was quoting. Our room was huge, fresh, great lanai, and marvelous view. Self parking was very close, a luxury in Hawaii. Pool one of the nicest ever.

A sense that the hotel is pinching pennies, cutting corners. Not a sense well being among staff. Staff not well trained.

Wonderful Hotel, staff, beach, and locationPosted Jan 13, 2015
The Mauna Kea is a wonderful place to stay. First, the greeter remembered my name all weekend. The guy checking us in was darling. The room was gorgeous and the bed comfy. So great to be able to sleep with the ceiling fan on with the screen door keeping out any bugs. The bathroom was crazy nice. Friendly staff helping people launch longboards, friendly but not intrusive. Real bed turn down service. So sweet.

Want to Go BackPosted Dec 22, 2014 on Hotels
Beautiful as always. The restaurant was alittle expensive. And only 1 was opened. But would definitely stay again. The beach was awesome. Snorkel right off the beach.

View and beach to die for! big deck comfy chairsPosted Dec 3, 2014
Maid service wasnt the greatest. Maid did not always clean table tops and clean entire floors. 2 restaurants were closed for a few nights when they were supposed to be open. Beach restaraunt and bar should be open for dinner everyday instead of food service cut off at 2:30 or 3. Otherwise it was all excellent. Loved the rooms and huge deck with oversized comfy chairs and ottoman. Dinner prices were high. Beautiful grounds and excellent location for beach lovers. Best beach on the island.

Classic golf and beach hotelPosted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Room decor and location. A true resort as opposed to convention hotel.
Cons: Food was not up to par with the price. With few other options, they have a captive audience.
Great beach. Beautifully maintained resort. Well designed rooms. Convenient location to other west side resorts with more shopping, dining options. Wish there were more dining options available on-site. Restaurants were expensive and the food good but not off the wall great.

Home away from homePosted Nov 19, 2014
I love the Mauna Kea! No place like it in the world. It is so understated and not flashy. Just lovely old style Hawaii. Don't ever change too much MK because what makes you special is your tradition. Thank you! We will be back year after year because you make us relaxed and happy. Mahalo!
