We finally went to Hawaii and only planned a few days on the Big Island; so our stay here was brief. I am sort of sad as I could have stayed here for the entire vacation. First of all it was not a hotel like I thought. It was a condo that was privately owned and Outrigger just rents out.... More

Stayed there with my family for the IM world championship. Booked it early for good price. I find it very convenient although drive to Kailua is 20 minutes away. That said it would be nice to be closer but value for money is good, service excellent and the place is very family friendly. I like self catering when racing. Each... More

We spent three nights here in an oceanfront room on the second floor. We couldn't have had a more beautiful view of the Pacific, with the most amazing sunsets. Our condo was well-equipped and very comfortable. The only disappointment was that our unit did not have air conditioning, which made things uncomfortable for part of each day. If you want... More

We stayed from 28/06/14 to 3/07/14 but did not really enjoy our stay here. First, there was no restaurant/café/store where you could buy food on site and nothing in the brochures tell you this of course. Luckily we did have a rental car to get around - don't know how else we could have got any food or drinks, as... More

I am sorry to hear of your recent encounter. Here along this coast there is no condominium that has a restaurant on property. But, there is a full shopping center less than 5 minutes drive from our property. This shopping center has Thai, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, a specialty coffee shop, ice cream shop and pacific rim restaurants. There is a... More

We were here for three days during our honeymoon trip to the Hawaiian islands. Pros: Great adult pool location next the ocean, lots of room in the condo, nice complimentary coffee on arrival. Cons: Difficult to circulate air flow through the condo. Mandatory 95 dollar cleaning fee on arrival, Neither us or our travel agent were made aware of this... More

I took down my original review of this unit because I did it while “under the influence.” I was in a foul mood and the review was less-than-accurate and rather unfair. So here’s a much more helpful one, mostly good and entirely true. Best View in Keauhou First, I have spent a lot of time on foot in the area,... More

Rented a one bedroom ocean view condo. Lovely balcony, but I imagine a little noisy if people were playing golf- it was hot, so you would need to get out early in the morning for a round. Great set up, including the laundry, which was used. All the required essentials there & a handyman was on site to fix things... More
