Best Beach on the Big Island

September 30, 2011

Hapuna Beach Prince is a beautiful property located 25-30 minutes from airport. This “quiet” resort sits on one of The Big Islands best beaches, slightly south of its sister property, the Mauna Kea Resort. The beach in front of the resort is beautiful white sand. Most of the views at the property have an ocean view unless they are on the ground level. You can see the Ocean through gardens on ground. The rooms are nice sized. The Ocean Front Rooms are recommended as well as highest floor for best view. It is also recommended that families book an Ocean Front Suite as these units have nice kitchens and bathrooms where ocean front rooms do not have kitchens. The Ocean Front Rooms are located in building three. Ocean View Rooms are located in Building 4, and Terrace Rooms are located in Building 5. Building 5 is never offered to guests unless they need to open it up for inventory. It is not recommended to book terrace rooms. The hotel was renovated in 1999. They expect to begin renovations next year. The hotel prices well and the price is definitely worth it! We loved the view from the restaurant! This property is a great alternative to any of the five star luxury resorts on the islands. Clients can shop at Mauna Lani Shops or Queens and Kings Village at Waikola. Shopping and certain activities are approximately 15 minutes from hotel. The drive is nice, smooth, and easy. The hotel entrance turns toward the mountains (away from the beach), but the driveway circles back around and under the highway and the resort sits on the beach.

It should also be noted that the hotel is great for honeymooners or families looking for a quiet location for a good price. There is golf within minutes of the resort. There are 9 handicapped rooms if needed.
