“Wonderful place to stay!”
We really enjoyed our townhouse location. The two bedroom had plenty of room for us and our teenage son. The pool area was close by with a great pool and hot tub. It is about 20 to 30 minutes north of Kona. Daily maid service with a full kitchen and laundry was a nice convenience. Lots of birds and nice landscaping outside too.
“Beautiful, Relaxing Atmosphere”
The Mauna Lani Point has well maintained, beautiful grounds. The unit was spacious, clean and had all the amenities we needed. The golf course was great and having the private beach and shuttle service w/in the resort was awesome. We went at a good time because we seemed to have the place all to ourselves. We used the outdoor kitchen/bbq area by the pool which was fantastic with everything you would need for a great time (ice maker, frige, oven, stove). This was my first time in a condo rather than a hotel atmosphere. It was kind of a shock being so secluded – but yet it’s centrally located so getting to all the attractions and shopping is very convenient. I actually enjoyed the seclusion after a full day of sightseeing and activity. Staying in the condo saved a lot on eating out and we were able to stick to a healthier diet that way. I would certainly go back and would recommend Mauna Lani Point.
Traveler’s tip on getting the most out of your stay
Be sure to rent a car so that you can drive around the island. Kona/Kailua is just 20 minutes away and has lots of seaside shops and restaurants. I recommend dinner at Tommy Bahamas just up the street at Mauna Lani Shops. Great atmosphere, food and view. Get groceries at the Waikoloa Village rather than going to WalMart or Costco in Kona. Those didn’t have as large a selection of groceries as did the grocery store at the Village – plus it’s closer.
