Great location, beautiful rooms, attention to detail, peaceful, serene and wonderful, wonderful friendly efficient welcome and service. You wanna just relax and not be disturbed? Fine. You want a lot of help, service, organization? Tracey and Denise are there for you. Like you are the only one there and that you're all they have to worry about. The connections they... More

Dear Andre D: Thanks for "relaxing" at Kona Kai. Relaxing and just enjoying doing-nothing-much is Kona Kai's main objective. Everything we do is so our guests enjoy "il dolce far niente," the sweetness of doing nothing. Europeans might find that a bit easier than Americans, but we hope the Kona Kai environment and experience help even us over-zealous Americans enjoy... More

We spent 3 nights here last month. Chose it based on pictures & reviews and we were not disappointed! What a beautiful place - immaculate and just lovely layout and grounds. We stayed in the Mango room. The pool was great and we could watch the sunsets from the "beach". Our only issue was no breakfast. It was not a... More

My husband and I traveled to Florida to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. After 4 nights in Palm Beach, we stayed the last 3 nights of our vacation in Key Largo. We are familiar with the keys, having honeymooned in Key West 10 years ago. After leaving the fast paced area of Palm Beach and driving through the crazy... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding Anniversary and decided to take a trip to the Florida keys. We wanted places to relax and unwind. After doing some research on trip advisor I decided our first stop would be The Kona Kai. The reviews were amazing and it sounded perfect for us. We were not disappointed. The grounds... More

We stayed in this fabulous resort for two nights on our way to Key West. The resort is top notch. Our room (Sugar Apple) was immaculately clean and beautiful. On our first morning at Kona Kai we were able to watch a mom manatee and baby swim by in the bay while we sipped coffee on the sea wall! What... More

Stayed here for a weekend getaway, and I have to say this resort is top notch. The rooms are spacious and clean. The property is well maintained and beautiful. The views resemble a post card.They have a great pool area with bottled water and fresh fruit poolside. There are kayaks and paddle boats available for guest use at any time.... More

This was our first stay at Kona Kai, but we've been to Key Largo about 6 times over the past 3 years. We continued our search for the perfect place to stay, and this resort hits all the marks! Despite the property being situated on a long rectangular site that spans from US1 to Florida Bay, this place is loaded... More

This was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It was like being in the Caribbean without being there. The place is beautiful and the staff is extremely helpful. The sunsets are breathtaking. Will definitely stay there again.

So much better than a hotel. My first time at b&b and not sure what took me do long. It was a very quiet place even when fully booked. It had beautiful landscaping with plants everywhere. The beach and hammocks were great. I guess the main downside is really spotty cell service but that just makes it more relaxing. The... More

We just got back from our most recent visit to Kona Kai. I have been coming there since they opened in the early 90's, and it just keeps geting better and better. The grounds are beautiful and so peaceful thanks to the botanical gardens. The staff is beyond great and helpful, and whichever room we stay in, it is absolutely... More
