Location great. Food terrible (previous visit food was delicious). Very basic food, very pricey. Tons of flies. Definitely will not go back. The Kona ice cream dessert was served half melted.

Hard to beat the location of this casual spot at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. The food is good and it's a nice place for cocktails followed by a walk in the sand.

Was looking forward to a relaxing Mai Tai on the beach at the beach bar. Utterly disappointed with the drink. Glass overflowing with ice,the juice filled the rest and minimal rum. Completely overpriced and disappointing and I would not return.

Hua Tree is a fun place to grab some protein and a cocktail while catching a break from the ocean. The food is about your average pool/beach bar type you’ll find on the Kohala Coast. The portions are perfect and the preparation is fine. The...More

Couldn't pick a better spot for a bar. The beach is soft fine white sand and the surf is great for boggie boarding and swimming. The bar had an interesting assortment of specialty cocktails. The MaiTai was good. It required a supplemental shot of dark...More

This restaurant is greatly improved from the last time I visited, about three years ago. Excellent ahi tuna and great menu options. Excellent poke and fries too.
