My family and I stayed here for three nights in one of the suites. Two adults and three kids fit comfortably in the spacious room. We had two queen beds and the living room couch served as two twin beds. We had a little kitchenette which was perfect for a family traveling with small kids. The room was very clean... More

My family and I stayed in room 3 at the Kona Kai. It was spacious suite which impressed the entire family. The room was very clean and updated with modern comforts. The grounds were beautiful and reminded of us our trip to Hawaii. The pool was quite large and extremely clean. Outside the gated pool area there was an authentic... More

ROACH MOTEL!!! We stayed for three nights. On the first night, we had to kill a roach in our room and one in our bathtub. On each consecutive night we found dead roaches in the room and baby roaches walking around in the bathtub. It's a cute place, in a nice location - but the roaches... Gross!

Weekend get away and this hotel was great for our needs. The staff was friendly and made recommendations for dining. The staff leaves at 7 pm but the office doors are left opened with your check in information. Extra towels and bathroom items are available in the office and the keys in the room. I do wish the doors were... More

My family and I stayed at this small little paradise. Everything was exactly as expected. The beds were very comfortable and air conditioner was supurb. The only thing that needed attention was a sticky bathroom door. Room 11. I never said anything about, because I didn't want to be nit picky. Thanks alot for your friendly atmosphere.

This was a very cute little place. We got one of the two queen bed motel style rooms and it was clean and comfortable. The grounds are nicely laid out and very tropical feeling and they have grills to use. The room had a nice porch with two chairs. There were some bad points though which kept me from giving... More

The staff was very nice. The room was nicely done and clean. The beds were comfy. We stayed in the efficiency. My only comment is there isn't a comfy chair to sit in. After a long day the small dinette chairs are hard and I cannot watch tv in bed so that was a little frustrating. I'm glad it was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights because girlfriend wanted to go shelling for her birthday. It's not on the beach but not far from many beaches either. Hotel staff were great and helpful. Pool was nice. Room was clean. Outdoor grills available. Bed and pillows were really comfy :) Close to restaurants, grocery and shops. I'd do it again.

A campy little place in the middle of the island. Nothing fancy or trendy. Rooms look like they are fabricated from manufactured housing but everything was clean and well kept. No daily maid service but bedding and towels are available at the office for the asking. A number of excellent restaurants and a 7-11 are within walking distance. We enjoyed... More
