The resort is beautiful. It’s got a mid century design that I think some people think is dated looking. I think it’s very elegant but I happen to love mid century design. We came for 2 nights for our honeymoon, they upgraded us to a better ocean view room for free and gave us a free bottle of champagne. Only thing I was disappointed about was I tried to make a reservation at the Manta restaurant for dinner and they said it was fully booked and couldn’t take us for either night we were staying. Was disappointing for our honeymoon to get turned down, but the restaurant was super expensive anyway so i guess we saved some money. I’d definitely come back and stay again, it’s a beautiful resort.

Mauna Kea is amazing. The beach is the best and more private than Hapuna. Service was excellent everywhere we went. Our suite was perfect and the ocean wing was nice and quiet. Breakfast buffet was so good and nice to see during these times. Amy the concierge was the best! So responsive and always making sure we were well taken care of! Very nice gym and outdoor machines available too. And 5 stars to Cynthia and Pacific Dream Photography! With a 21 month old in tow, she knew how to tackle the toddler photography wars! She was so patient, let my son lead the way, captured even the most difficult moments, and even brought along a few toys! The pictures came out beautiful and we are so happy we chose them. From portrait to action photos she captured all the best moments. Thank you Cynthia!

Our recent stay at the Mauna Kea resort on the Big Island was absolutely magical! Gorgeous property, idyllic beach and unbelievably great food! So much to do, including night swimming with feeding manta rays! To save some beautiful memories of our stay, we set up an appointment with Cynthia, with Pacific Dream Photography for a photo session at the resort. On the appointed day, Lisa showed up as our photographer. She was a great help in selecting the best locations, and in posing. Part of the fun of celebrating an event such as an anniversary at the Mauna Kea, is getting a selection of photos to commemorate such a wonderful experience! In that quest, both Cynthia and Lisa were indispensable! Lisa’s ideas regarding posing and placement, were spot-on! She also took full advantage of the spectacular late afternoon lighting, culminating in a series of shots with a breathtaking sunset! Cynthia was marvelous at helping us select the “keepers” from a vast array of shots. She also provided invaluable assistance in selecting a photo package that was best for us. Between those marvelous metal plate-based and canvas prints, we can’t wait to get several done! Too much fun! We STRONGLY recommend contacting these folks at Pacific Dream Photography at the hotel, if you want to preserve beautiful memories of your visit!

Overall enjoyable stay with an amazing beach! Grounds are kept beautiful and the staff are hard working and welcoming. As a platinum member, our breakfast was free (limited to the buffet) and I thought the food was delicious. Best Belgian waffles and the fresh fruit was so delicious! I also would like to recommend getting a photo session done by Cynthia over at Pacific Dream Photography! She’s amazing and helps bring out your personality in the photos. As someone who is not used to getting their photo taken professionally, she had a way of relaxing you and getting you to have a lot of fun. I’m so happy she captured these lovely memories and I’ll have them cherish forever!
