Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel

62-100 Kaunaoa Dr., , Hawaii, 96743, USA

More reasonably priced than its neighbor resorts and with direct access to the Big Island's largest sand beach, this massive hotel has enormous columns and a terraced, open-air lobby with rotunda ceiling, curved staircases, and skylights. All of the rooms face the ocean, creating an expansive property with long walking distances. At night, lighting transforms the hotel into an architectural showplace. Rooms are large, with marble bathrooms and plenty of in-room amenities like coffeemakers and robes, and the staff is exceedingly helpful. The Hapuna Prince serves up excellent cuisine—check out the Let's Go Crabbing all-you-can-eat buffet at the Ocean Terrace on Friday nights. There's also a breakfast buffet each morning. For the budget conscious, the on-site deli-café provides affordable options for light meals on the go for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, has topped many a "best courses" list.
