Well maintained grounds. Make sure you ask for air conditioning and an updated condo. Our first night we were in a 70's era not updated condo - not good. Lady named Psalms at the desk was very, very helpful in getting us into one. Ocean front pool very nice. Condo had basic utensils but no basics in terms of condiments... More

So first things first, the Big Island is where you want to be in Hawaii. That's another review but wow, it's everything I wanted Hawaii to be. Kanaloa is a condo type place and you get exactly that: someone's Condo. That's not a bad thing at all but you need to remember that this isn't a Hotel. We had unit... More

I really would like to give this place a great rating. Really beautiful well maintained grounds, 3 nice pools, and right on the ocean (no beach). Interior of units were modern and well kept with equipped kitchens and laundry facilities. (These are privately owned condos that are rented out). We were checked into 3404. We immediately saw (3) large cockroaches... More

These condos were recently sold by Outrigger to Castle resorts sometime between when we reserved our two bedroom condo. The condo we were in was very outdated and not well equipped. Laundry room door off its hinges. Half the outlets didn't work - mostly in bedrooms and bathrooms, Internet was not working and TV was fuzzy. We reported it and... More

We stayed in unit 3703 for 6 nights in July. We rented through Aloha Condos, and the process was smooth with no problems. It was perfect for our family. My husband, 15 year old son and I were traveling with my parents, so having the 2 bedrooms and the loft space for our son was great. The condo is spacious... More

I booked a four day stay at this property in February 2015, paying in full. I booked a two bedroom ocean view loft. I was contacted two weeks prior to my confirmed dates that the hotel was overbooked and I was being relocated to their sister property, Fairview Villas. This would have been a downgrade as I was being relocated... More

We rented a two bedroom condo here for 5 days and it was fantastic. Great location for peace and quiet, oceanfront views (worth it), outdoor dining, close to shopping and snorkeling. Spacious rooms and comfortable kitchens. All appliances. Washer dryer saves much suitcase space.

We rented a two bedroom partial ocean view unit on the first floor for five people. We were there 9 nights and very comfortable. Our balcony overlooked the ocean pool. The best thing about this resort was the location. Close enough to downtown and all the attractions and great beaches but out of the way enough for a calm quiet... More

We stayed for 6 nights in June 2015 and had a two bedroom condo looking over the golf course. The view was nice and the small outside area was peaceful. You can watch the very bright green lizards climb the plants. Considering the beach views are not spectacular the greens view is pretty good so don't be disappointed if it... More

Mahalo for your comments, we will use it to provide better service to our guests. I will personally check on the shower heads, and have them changed. I also like the fairway views, it is very quiet, even more so with the golf course being closed at this time. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation time with us.... More
