If you stay at any of the hotels right on Alii Drive or a block away, you will be in for a treat. The first time(years ago), our family of 6 stayed at the Kona Seaside and it was great. Basic but clean and a bargain. There is so much to see and do or just sit under the Banyon... More

We were staying at the hotel which is right on the pier. We rated this a bit higher than others may due to the fact that it is the swim start location for the Ironman world championship. If you open water swim from here, there are buoys marked clearly with swim distances. Not much else to do here but it... More

I am security conscious because I have traveled the world for 30 years and lived (as Govt Employee) in Asia for one year and Middle East for five years. I stayed at a local hotel for four nights. On the first evening at nightfall we decided to stroll along Kona's main street to have dinner. We were accosted by a... More

We so appreciated having the pier to watch the start of the Ironman Triathlon. It gave us the perfect viewing place after volunteering at body marking. Also, rented a kayak at King Kam and paddled around the pier.

Small pier next to King Kam Hotel (Marriott Courtyard status). This is where passengers embark, and disembark the tourist ships. Small beach adjacent. We like to eat lunch at the King Kamehameha swim pool restaurant next door.

We happened to arrive during the week when the Ironman Triathletes were prepping for the event to be held that Saturday. Town was VERY busy and crowded and hot and humid. There is some shopping nearby and places to cool your thirst.

We were on the Pride of America last week and of the 5 ports we visited, Kona was our favorite. It is quaint, beautiful, has coffee, good water sports, ... The rest of out ports were Matson Lines freight ports and not picturesque at all. Kona is nice, maybe because you have to anchor out and tender in.

Aloha! My family and I had our first Hawaii vacation June 2012 and had the privilege of booking two tours with Dolphin Journeys. Our first was the Metaphysical Style Volcano Tour and it was a day full of learning all about The Big Island, the locals, plants indigenous to Hawaii, lava rock, Kona coffee and it just goes on.
