My husband and I came by here for two days on our honeymoon. Mauna Lani is a lush tropical location, the landscaping is really beautiful. Our room was very nice, the view of the ocean was great, our only complaint is how loud the birds in the atrium could be in the morning. Loud. The blinds are also slatted, so for my husband, who likes a dark room, the sunrise was a wakeup call. The breakfast buffet was really delicious, however there aren't too many local food options nearby, it's mostly chains, unless you drive 40 mins to Waimea or Kona.
With a pool big enough to practice swim strokes in (but not big enough for laps) and the sea right nearby, there were a lot of decent swimming options. The grounds were teeming with cyclists and runners (there was a 70.3 triathlon the next day) and it was a great place to train. The fitness center was one of the best I've seen at a hotel. I regret that we never got to play tennis or go scuba diving (no time!) There's a laundry room, which is really handy if you are moving on to another location and want to start with clean clothes!
Most importantly, Mauna Lani had a feeling of luxury and charm that I haven't seen in a hotel for many years. On arrival you receive a shell necklace, and are taken to a seated check-in where you are offered a cold lavender towel and a guava and mango drink. We were not staying in one of their seafront villas and yet we were treated like valuable guests. Highly recommend this beautiful place.
