Hapuna Beach Hotel is amazing. All rooms face the ocean, best beach on the island, and the staff is very friendly and willing to help out with anything. We stayed for 8 days and would diffidently stay again. We were very pleased with our choice. The food is very expensive so plan ahead for meals. They do have a great cafe to grab sandwiches, pizza and soda open daily 8am-8pm.

The hotel grounds are beautiful. The pool is huge and there is a beach and lounge chairs on the beach to enjoy. (Beaches on the Big Island are rare) The room is very dated and tired. The wallpaper is coming off in some places. The bathroom has a separate shower and tub. The bathroom is big but not very private. The doors are slatted and the door to the toilet is a small slatted door. The hotel is very quiet and close to other high end hotels. The hotel buffet is about $55 per person and $27 for kids. We ate at Pesto's about 10 minutes up the road. I would stay here again!
Huge, deserted, overpriced property on one of the best beaches around.

Get the cheapest room available, don't bother with upgrades, don't spend time in room unless it's night and you're sleeping. Go spend time on the beach - it's beautiful. Food is very expensive and just okay. Drinks are expensive and relatively fine. Nice restaurants approximately 5 minutes up North (Plantation Grill and Seafood Bar), and 10-15 minutes down South in Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach.
As far as our stay goes - got an upgrade to Ocean View room, but it's not worth it. You're far away from the ocean, the view is obstructed by palm trees, and you mostly see dull dark lava fields. Somebody was smoking during half of our stay a floor below us - and that was very bothersome. Called front desk three times, called security twice - they haven't done anything. Only promised to take care of that, but nothing happened.
Room itself was okay. Outdated, not as clean as you'd expect from such a place, but of a nice size.
Again, expensive place to stay and worth the money (unless you get a killer deal). They charge you for everything you wouldn't ever think of. Internet is around $13 bucks a day, parking is $15/day for self-park, $20/day for valet (plus tips). Cabanas are not free, even though the place was about 10% full. They didn't even bother offering free upgrade, even though most floors were literally empty.
The beach is very nice though. If the weather is good, you will see very caribbean-like water. Good snorkeling, lots of sea life.

I have been to this property over 5 times. We stayed a week and enjoyed a relaxing time walking the beach and swimming. Water temp is wonderful and while you can get some high shoreline waves, you can get beyond them and swim. If you want an alternative "turtle cove" is protected and you will have very few waves. You can also walk over to Maune Kea and both ends of their beach are protected from waves by a point. Beach is equally as nice. You have the ability to chage to your room at either property. Food offerings are limited. You may want to explore for some variety, but the breakfast buffet will be enough for your day, or you can skip it and go to the pool bar after 11am and get salads or a sandwich. Internet in the room is not free, so plan accordingly. You should explore including breakfast, internet, and parking which is offered at the time of checkin. The staff will try hard to get you a room you ares satisfied with as long as it is within the class of room you originally chose. I think ocean view is fine, but there are those that want to pay for an ocean front room.
