Very Good8.0
Best beach on the island
The Mauna Kea resort and it's beach are phenomenal. We had some trouble with our television not working, but the concierge team helped us sort it out. Highly recommend this place. However, food onsite is expensive and limited so you may want to drive for Sansei for some delicious sushi.

Good6.0
Average not great.
Large hotel that was OK, not particularly special or nice. I guess the beach is nice. Service people were nice but only average in servicing. Overall felt over priced for an average place.
