Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel has some 380 bedrooms, all as comfortable as you would expect from Four Seasons, and quite similar in size and decor but with the main difference being the view. Trust us - you want Oceanfront.

The resort itself is built on a slight slope overlooking a sandy beach which is public, and shared with other resorts, but the Four Seasons set up sun beds in their designated area.

The Four Seasons is popular with both honeymooners and families and manages to cater well for both. While there is no separate kids pool, there is a serenity pool which is only open for adults, and there are a few hot tubs, an infinity pool, and a pool with a swim up bar for the enjoyment of couples. For even greater privacy there are private cabanas for rent in this area that come with a minibar, TV, wireless head phones, butler service, the lot.

The main swimming pool is the central focus of the hotel, around which the lobby, restaurants, gym and other facilities are located. There are superb views of the ocean from almost everywhere in the resort.

There are several restaurants to choose from - Duo, on the ground floor, serves breakfast, and then lunch and dinner specialising in steak and seafood. Ferraro's is just on the other side of the pool and this Italian gets very busy, so try to get a table on the edge looking out towards the water. Finally, Spago by America's superchef Wolfgang Puck is the hotel's haute cuisine eatery and the lobby bar has live music, cocktails and a snack menu.

Activities on offer include yoga, paddle boarding, diving and outrigger canoeing, alongside a spa, beauty salons and high end boutiques, plus local artists selling crafts.

Why we love it

As with most hotels in Hawaii the ocean front rooms have the best view, as they will be closest to the water, and least likely to have too much obstructing the drop dead gorgeous view.
