Fabulous location
Niamh, gb3 night romance trip
Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows
Still very good ....
Third time back for 10day+ stay. Good garden room but no comp upgrade unlike previous stays of similar duration. Paid for partial ocean view room. Recommend hotel beach, beach49 and beach69 for nearby snorkelling. Kealakekua bay disappointing this trip. Lava flows about a 4ml walk along emergency road at Kalapana and then a few hundred metres up - no need for a guided tour. Lots of other tourists - just follow them. Park rangers present there too. Mauna Kea excellent as usual.

Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows
Don't quite understand why the Mauna Lani needs a renovation; we found it to be perfect as is. The staff, the location, the amenities, the service, the view, the proximity to sites, the pool, the beach, the hot tub, the gym, the spa -- five star for all.
