Unforgettable stay and photo session at Pacific Dream Photography

My husband surprised me with a stay at Mauna Kea to celebrate our 11th year anniversary and my 40th birthday. There could not have been a better place to celebrate than at Mauna Kea. The beach view room, warm staffs at check-in and restaurant including house keeping were so warm and welcoming. I loved the whole atmosphere of serenity and peace with amazing views all around the hotel. Moreover, the highlight of the stay was the complimentary photo session at Pacific Dream Photography offered through the hotel. The fact that it was right at the hotel made it so much easier for all our three generations, including three young children, to get together. The director, Alejandro, and the photographer, Edder, were so friendly, warm and kind and made the whole experience so enjoyable and pleasant. I would highly recommend Mauna Kea and making an appointment with the Pacific Dream Photography while you are there to captures the special memories at the Kona Island!

Minot, North Dakota

My sister and I enjoyed two glorious nights here - not long enough! The property is so beautiful from the drive in off the main road, to all of the well groomed grounds and the gorgeous beach. So easy to relax and enjoy the lovely surroundings most anywhere on site. I particularly enjoyed lounging by the pool and having lunch served to us there. Great service & the rooms and sleep quality were superb. Looking forward to returning someday and staying longer!
