The hotel has a 200-yard long white sand beach with calm water, well preserved reef across the whole bay less than 100-yard from the beach, also along the coastline. Super clear water and tons of fish. There’s a platform out by the outside reef for people to rest if they want. There are kayaks, standup paddle boards, surf boards free of charge. In addition, there’s manta ray viewing and snorkeling with mantas right at the hotel. The mantas glided inches from my body and then did back flips. I got to see every gill under there belly and all the signature spots. It was truly life changing! The restaurant at the hotel is great. They have live music every night. Perfect sunset right at the hotel. There’s only one pool, but who needs one with the beautiful calm ocean!

Beautiful beach
The beach is beautiful! It’s worth every penny but as far as the room and service they could improve. They didn’t change the pillow cases and they smelled like sweat. A few staff members were slow and unfriendly. They could use better body wash, shampoo and conditioner for the price of the room.

It is a beautiful property! Most of our service was excellent, but several times we had less than friendly help. Also, the Manta Dining was closed for a private event on Thursday leaving our dining chooses limited!

Fabulous hotel. The property is beautiful and immaculate. Gorgeous landscaping and nice staff. Beautiful views from everywhere you look and very clean. Ocean front room was extremely private and comfortable. Food was good but not mind blowing. The resort had an east coast country club kind of vibe, which isn’t really my thing but it’s so lovely I didn’t care. Beach was fantastic!

I think we've stayed at the Mauna Kea 15 or 20 times over the years it's one of our favorite places in the world. The best thing about it all honesty is the staff ... the people that work there are first class ,friendly ,gracious willing to help. However at this time we think the property looked a little rundown. I know we blamed Covid for a lot of things but I know in some of the hotels we've visited in the last six months hotels took the Covid downtime to spruce up their place ....nothing happened at Maunakea. The floors are a little scratched, the grounds a little uncapped the room is a little beat up ... At least one of the elevators was broken 11 of the 12 days we stayed there , latte machines in the restaurants broken every day we were there in every restaurant ... menus a little uninspiring. The beach area was fantastic as usual one of natures best. Hawaiian pokey at the beach bar was fabulous... The copper bar is pretty pitiful, of the three or four resorts We visited in Kona for dinners and cocktails the copper bar it was by far the worst. It needs to be completely redone it's just uncomfortable , un inviting , it's not much fun compared to the competition.. breakfast was one exception for the food is still delightful. I'm not sure how much is the food and how much is the view but it's still the best place to eat breakfast in Kona .
