My family and I had the chance to spend three nights at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. It was a great way to get introduced to the Big Island of Hawaii. As you may know, there are not a lot of sand beaches on the Big Island because of the lava flows. The Hapuna Prince is located on one of the nicest beaches on the island.
Our room, like all of the rooms in the beach front buildings, had a unique double door. One of them with wood slats and a lock and another that was solid. The slatted door allows air to flow through the room from the back side to the ocean front. We left our sliding glass door that faces the ocean open all night and locked the slatted door on the back side. There were no ceiling fans in these rooms, so having the air flow through made a big difference. But listening to the ocean pounding all night long was the real treat.
The only thing I didn't like was all of the "upselling" that goes on at the front desk when checking-in. There were way too many options to choose from, many with fees, that I felt were being pushed on us when all we were trying to do was get checked in. It is not a reason to avoid the Prince, but it was annoying.
If you can get a decent rate and stay at the Prince, I think you will enjoy it.
