Beautiful Hotel to stay in and by far the best beach on the big island. Staff was very friendly and helpful with anything we might need. I didn't care much for the on location restaurants,but we made sure to grab some food when we went exploring. Overall staying here was like a dream and I cant wait to go back!

Best honeymoon location ! Fantastic hotel!

We spent the second part of our honeymoon at this property and it was literally the best hotel experience I’ve ever had. Customer Service, rooms, beach, food, housekeeping- everything was perfect. As a Marriott elite celebrating our honeymoon we were upgraded to a deluxe ocean front room ( number 606 ). The room was fantastic with huge bedroom, 2 lanais , big bathroom (2 sinks , bath and shower ) and walk-in closet. The room was great but the view..... exceeded all our expectations!!!! It was the most beautiful ocean view ever ! ( see pictures ) . The beach is fantastic- big, wide and very clean. There are a lot of beach chairs and umbrellas. The Hotel installs floating docks on the water its a really cool spot to relax on between swims or snorkeling. There is reef where you can easily snorkel and see lots of colorful fish during the day and manta rays at night ! There is also a manta Ray lookout spot - they come there everyday! There is an awesome beach bar located right at the beach where cocktails, lunch and dinner are served. Breakfasts at Manta Restaurant are fantastic and the ocean view from the restaurant is also spectacular. We had dinners at all 3 restaurants ( Hau Tree, copper bar and La Manta - I left separate reviews of them ) they were all really good . Customer service at the hotel was beyond exceptional- many thanks to Margarite who helped make sure everything was absolutely perfect during our honeymoon stay ! I highly recommend this hotel its a very special place with really unique architecture a perfect beach, great amenities and excellent service. I also highly recommend doing some hotel activities such as moonlight manta snorkeling - really special experience! We also saw rooms at the beachfront part of the hotel - the view from the rooms is great too however it’s an older part of the hotel so it’s important to bare that in mind while booking.
