Top Hotels Hawaii Big Island – 2. The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows on Kohala Coast is also rated mainly as Excellent in independent visitor reviews. People choose this hotel due to the great pool area, the location and a perfect beach for swimming, snorkeling or just lying around and relaxing.
If you prefer a low key relaxing experience the Mauna Lani is for you.

Many of the resorts on Hawaii were built in the 80’s and although the Mauna Lani is around 30 years old but it doesn’t feel dated or run-down. You get great service from the staff who have worked there for a long time and are happy to take time to explain about the Polynesian culture.

Oceanfront rooms have wonderful views of sunsets, mountains and the sea. High floor oceanfront rooms on the north and west side of the resort are recommended for the best views, including the volcano on Maui.
