Convenient, but wish there was valet. In the middle of everything, check in is at 4pm. Had a long day and a sleeping child. I had to carry him (40lbs) from the nearby self parking lot to our room.
Thought it had direct beach access, we never found it. We were only there 2 nights, so perhaps we missed the the secret path.
As usual, the Four Seasons did not disappoint. The facility was amazing, the views breathtaking, and the staff accommodating and friendly. You can’t go wrong when staying here!

Difficult to find hotel at night. The walls were not sound proof. I could hear people talking in next room.
Nice place.. great location to the village . Only neg was parking was sparce. Enjoyed my stay.
The location is amazing! The property is older, but very well maintained. The staff was so friendly!
This B&B has extraordinarily nice rooms (really suites) which are very modern. It sits on a hill overlooking the Kona coast. You can relax all day by the pool or walk through the town of Holualoa with its many galleries or drive to the shore for swimming and snorkeling (there is equipment to borrow). ...
Nice size rooms but bathroom and shower very outdated. Also rooms are old and portable air conditioners dont cool entire place but better than nothing. The resort front desk closes so early like 4-5pm but then again so does everything in Hawaii. :-)
Hawaii is the epitome of paradise on Earth, but Kona stands out among the Islands' many regions. The Big Island is ideal for anyone who wants a truly relaxing and nature-filled vacation. Kona's natural setting is enhanced by its lack of corporate businesses, adding to its hideaway appeal. Home to the world's most active volcano, Kona has hiking trails that would blow away the most experienced hiker, beaches that postcards cannot capture the beauty of, and restaurants that range from Michelin stars to tiny shacks full of adventures flavors. All eight islands of Hawaii have their beauty, but Kona seems to embody the “spirit” of Hawaii best.
The Mauna Kea Summit is home to Mauna Loa, the biggest, and still active, volcano on Earth, which has been around for over 700,000 years. This place is almost an amusement park for people who love nature, geology, and beauty. Either attend an extensive seven-hour tour with a guide, or create your own tour with a hike - at Mauna Kea. Visitors will see active lava, witness inspiring sunsets, and take in nights of endless stargazing.
With brilliant white sand and the purest ocean water, Manini'owali Bay is a magazine- beach. Part of Kekaha Kai State Park, you can swim with turtles, watch dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, go snorkeling and even try boogie boarding. Be careful of lava rock pools when the tide goes out in winter. Naturally, this beach can get busy, so arrive early if possible.
Kona is home to what was recently voted the country's best coffee, with locally-grown Hawaiian Queen Coffee beating over 600 competitors to be crowned best in the whole state of Hawaii. Most coffee shops are local and carry it. Fair warning: it is hard to enjoy this extraordinary coffee and go back to your normal cup of joe; but worry not, most coffee is available for purchase.
The hotels in Kona range from five-star luxury resorts to cozy huts on the beach. Prices run from as low as $90 a night all the way up to $900 for en-suite rooms with ocean views and every luxury on-site. The average price is typically about $130 per night, and the vast majority are usually located either on or right beside the beach.
While it can rain often on the other islands of Hawaii, it is rare that Kona gets showers (January tends to get the most rain). It has a tropical environment and essentially enjoys the same weather all year-round. During the day, the high average is usually mid to high 80s, and at night, the average is high 60s to low 70s. It can get a little windy at night from the ocean breeze, so bring layers if you're hoping for beach fires. June through October tend to be the hottest months, and the rest of the year is only slightly cooler by a few degrees.
