Four Seasons Hualalai

Four Seasons Hualalai Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The pristine Four Seasons, the only five-pearl property on the Big Island, is unlike any other resort on the Kohala Coast. Lush and beautifully landscaped grounds surround private bungalow-style rooms and suites tucked along winding paths throughout the large property. The thoughtfully designed architecture, pools (all seven of them), and public spaces are indulgent without seeming excessive. Dining options on-site are few in number but high in quality, and include what is arguably the best restaurant on the Big Island. The service is excellent and the experience is first-rate down to the last detail.

The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows

The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This beautiful luxury beach resort on the Kohala Coast is chock-full of excellent features: top-rated dining, golfing, tennis, fitness training, and spa experiences. It's pricier than some comparable resorts in the area, but free extras help compensate (valet parking, Wi-Fi, and newspaper delivery, to name a few). Free activities at the on-site Hawaiian cultural center -- including tours of the historic rock carvings and the former royal fishing ponds on the grounds -- are also a highlight.

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This luxury property on the Kohala Coast is known for its beautiful white-sand beach, fine dining and world-class golf and tennis facilities. The atmosphere is relaxed and the thoughtfully renovated rooms have comfortable furnishings and a modern island feel. The hotel structure itself is less than grand, but in good shape for its age.

The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii

The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This 32-acre luxury resort in Waimea delivers all the high-end Big Island essentials: A beautiful spa, comprised mostly of outdoor huts; a white-sand beach on a calm lagoon; beautifully landscaped grounds, and a huge pool with ocean views. But rooms, though tasteful, aren't quite as luxurious as you'd expect at this price point, and numerous extra fees can leave guests feeling nickel-and-dimed.

Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This upscale 533-room resort is perched on Anaehoomalu Bay on the Kohala coast, offering on-site beach access, lovely grounds with winding paths and fish ponds, and two pools. Rooms are big and stylish, but they lack Wi-Fi, and bathrooms are typically on the small side. The location -- next to two championship golf courses, and within walking distance of shops and restaurants -- is convenient, especially since guests may be inclined to skip the pricey, mediocre on-site dining.

Hilton Waikoloa Village

Hilton Waikoloa Village Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Hilton Waikoloa Village is the largest and most family-friendly resort in the Kailua-Kona area, and is often referred to as the “Disneyland“ of the Big Island. With 1,200 rooms, three large pool areas, extensive outdoor grounds and a variety of on-site dining options, the Hilton Waikoloa is indeed a small village in and of itself, and a tram and canal boats help guests travel across the sprawling property. Each of the three towers on the property has a different style of room decor, but the overall feel the same: clean and generic. The biggest downsides? The property is showing its age, the restaurants are pricey (and mostly mediocre), and there's no beach on the actual ocean -- just a thin strip of sand on the man-made lagoon. Luckily Lagoon Tower rooms were renovated in 2012.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Hilton Grand Vacations Club offers an affordable two-bedroom option within the Waikoloa Beach Resort. The living room, dining, and kitchen areas are well-equipped for multiple guests and longer stays, much like other condos in the area, but access to the Waikoloa Hilton allows guests to enjoy resort-like perks close by. The lobby area and main pool are beautifully designed, though both can easily become crowded (along with other facilities) due to high traffic and small space. Some areas are a bit dated, but overall it's a great value for the price and for those looking for a more at-home-type extended stay.

Mauna Lani Point

Mauna Lani Point Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Mauna Lani Point Villas are part of the larger Mauna Lani Resort area, and the 65 one- and two-bedroom units in the rental program all have gourmet kitchens and large living room areas with great light. Since each unit is individually owned, the interior decorating and small details (including appliances, electronics and bathrooms) can vary greatly. The pool pavilion is tastefully designed and welcoming, with comfortable furniture and room for larger gatherings and events. For a fee, guests at Mauna Lani Point can gain access to the spa and fitness services at the neighboring Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, where the closest beach is also located.

Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay

Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The four-pearl, 509-room Sheraton may be lacking an on-site beach (it's a five-minute drive to the Kahaluu Beach Park), but prices are affordable and the south Kailua-Kona location is convenient. All guest rooms were renovated in 2012, receiving new paint and carpeting, as well as flat-screen televisions. Spaces are bright and cheerful, featuring unique touches from Hawaiian designer Sig Zane. There is also a huge free-form pool (arguably the resorts best feature), and the natural setting on lava rock cliffs right on the ocean is stunning, making the Sheraton Kona Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa a decent choice for the right price.

Outrigger Fairway Villas

Outrigger Fairway Villas Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This clean, affordable condo property in Waikoloa Village on the Kohala Coast offers an uncommon level of privacy: It's located inside a gated community and surrounded by a golf course. Ranch-inspired buildings house multi-room units, complete with full kitchens and washer/dryers, and property features include an attractive (if small) infinity pool and an open-air fitness room. But the living rooms and kitchens are a bit smaller than you'll find at competing condo properties, the decor varies by unit, and the beach is a half mile away.
