A beautiful location with lovely rooms. Our favorite restaurants on property were the Beach Tree Bar & Grill and Ulu. Our children really loved snorkeling in King's Pond and we all spent many days swimming in the Sea Shell Pool. The kids club was also a terrific option and gave the kids a break from the sun. The staff was excellent and even helped us locate a few things that we had left behind at restaurants/pools as we rushed to get to the next activity. Finally, the property has a fantastic and huge (indoor/outdoor) gym with a great pool for laps -- very much appreciated by my husband! In all, a terrific place!

Room Tip: There are very few truly Ocean Front Rooms on property. Our room (which was booked as "Ocean Front King Deluxe") actually overlooked the King's Pond with a view of the ocean which was fine for us, but if your expectation is that you will be able to walk out right to the ocean from your room, you will want to make a specific request with the reservationist.

The Four Seasons Resort gave us a real paradise experience and is possibly the best resort we have ever visited. Every aspect of the stay was perfect and I could not recommend it highly enough. The only problem we had was the fact that we had to leave to come home. The Service was amazing, the rooms were spacious and in particular we loved the outside shower. You can pick which pool you spend your time at, there are 5, but I particularly enjoyed the quiet pool. Beautiful views of the ocean and spectacular views from the restaurants, we even had lunch while looking at whales playing in the sea.

Room Tip: Get a ground floor room so you can avail of the outside shower, amazing!

My wife and I stayed here 5 nights. The location, the facilities and the staff are all 5-star.

There are two kinds of rooms - "lower level" or "ocean view." We've been here twice and stayed in a lower level room. (We'll make a third trip and request lower level again.) It is the lower level rooms that have the outdoor showers - lava rock, orchids, completely private, large, wonderful (see picture attached) - and from ours, along the 18th fairway, the view was beautiful and included the ocean.

Staff are all knowledgeable, courteous and responsive. All "alohas" are warm and come with smiles. Food and drinks at on-property restaurants are both top notch - although the wait for lunch seemed at bit long now and then. The services in the spa are very professional and the occasional free, cold snack while lying on the beach exceeded all expectations.

We were here long enough to have multiple conversations with some of the staff. According to one, there are five Four Seasons properties in the world that Four Seasons employees say are the "you have to visit this one!" resorts - this is one of those five (with the other four being in Bora Bora, Tahita, Punta Mita and Thailand).

Room Tip: Many lower level rooms have ocean views and only lower level rooms have the outdoor, lava rock showers.

We had a fabulous time and loved our room looking down at our private pond with the Pacific just 100 feet away. From sunrise to sunset and into the night, our experience was heavenly. Tough to go home. Loved all of the restaurants but Ulu was our favorite. Service was great as well. Spa was very nice and loved the fitness center.

Room Tip: I requested an ocean view room and it was fabulous.Slept each night to the sound of the Pacific.Loved our second level floor

This was an absolutely luxurious trip. We had a lower level room with a lovely lanai and a fun, private outdoor shower with a resident lizard. Our room was right near the pond where you could snorkel with the sea animals. At the poolsides we were given cold towels and misted by staff members. Cabanas surrounded the pools for your shady use. Otter pops were distributed there in the afternoon. The grounds and scenery were magnificent. It had a very beautiful walkway along the beach and golf course which my husband regularly jogged. Sea turtles could be seen nesting on the nearby beaches. The staff gave regular talks about various sea critters which you could touch. I even took some painting classes.

Room Tip: Ask for an outdoor shower.
