My wife and I have been to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel many times so we start relaxing on our drive to the airport from home because we know it will be perfect. This is not a slick marble glitzy type of beach hotel. It has tile, concrete stucco in an interesting style that is welcoming and calming. The rooms face the ocean or the mountains and we like both, the mountain rooms are quieter since the ocean is a little farther away and less expensive and cooler to sit out in the afternoon on your lania (deck). The rooms have lots of teakwood and are tastefully and serenly decorated. It was just rebuilt and we had a main bathroom my wife used and the man's bathroom without the shower. the bigger rooms have gigantic bathrooms with full glass walls and an ocean view if you choose that side of the hotel. No big nightlife here but who can stay awake after snorkeling with the fish and turtles just after dawn each morning, eating at the buffet breakfast (don't miss the waffles with macadamia nuts and maple syrup and coconut syrup) driving around the island to sightsee, back for swimming then drinks at 5pm on the terrace to music and dancing and then a great dinner from casual to elegant, say good night to the manta rays and off to bed to be ready for more of the same on the next day. there are amazing golf courses, tennis courts, spa therapies and the best soft white sand beach with amazing underwater coral formations and the beach boys/girls are really helpful. The bar/cafe on the sand really helps too. They don't allow any new hotels to be built this close to the sand anymore. When we are here we see large family groups of three generations to other couples relaxing like us.
