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

We were travelling with 2 teenage children and had just spent 6 nights on Oahu, before coming here. We stayed here for 3 nights ( would loved to have stayed longer). This was our first trip to Hawaii and will not be our last. This resort is about a half hour drive south from Kona Airport and. About 10 mins... More

Context: We stayed 6 nights on Big Island, 2 nights at the Outrigger, 2 nights at Volcano House and 2 nights back at the Outrigger. Hence we experienced 2 different Outrigger condos, both were 1 bedroom Ocean Views and both were excellent, extremely spacious, very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We had a late night arrival and made prior arrangements... More

This was our second stay at Outrigger Kanaloa. We stayed in apartment 603 and it was great! We arrived around midnight and were checked in by the security guard, who was very helpful. After a few minutes in the condo, we opted to pay the extra $25/day for AC as it was extremely hot (we were on the Big Island... More

The location of the condo I stayed in was superb, with the lanai facing the sea, you can hear the ocean all the time. The lawns are beautifully manicured and gardens kept beautifully. We stayed in room 2001, and whilst spacious, the kitchen & bathroom areas require serious updating. The cupboards are so old that they emit an odour of... More

Aloha and thank you for your comments, we will use it to make improvement. Regarding the air conditioning, not all units have the choice of using air conditioning, and the cost is to help the individual owner to off-setting the electricity expense incurred by the use of it. Thank you once again for your comments, hope we will see you... More

We stayed at this property in July 2014. It was in the 90s with no breeze when we were arrived and our first surprise was that air conditioning was not included - extra $26.50 per day! We booked through a travel agent, on a budget, and were unfortunately not aware of this before we left! The property itself was dated... More

Aloha and thank you for your comments. Yes, the air conditioning charge is paid directly back to the owner of the unit. Not all rooms have the option for use of air conditioning, currently about half of the units have this option.

We booked an oceanfront Apartment in January and got an early bird rate at $ 185 + tax, which is a really attractive price for 185 m2 + lanai. Beautiful sunsets + Dolphins playing in the morning was a treat. Apartments are nice - kitchen could be renewed and so also bathrooms - but in general fine with lots of... More

We appreciate your comments, and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time here at Kanaloa at Kona. The dolphins make their way on a morning routine right along our coast.

This property is just great. From the beginning at check in with Paulette, she just starts you off on such a happy journey. She is so warm and friendly that you just wanna stay and chat with her.

We rented a first floor partial ocean view 2BR/2BA condo, and were impressed the moment we stepped in. The layout was comfortable, the rooms were clean and tastefully decorated, bathrooms spacious and modern, and the place felt updated. We especially enjoyed breakfasts and desserts on the deck gazing at the ocean and hearing the waves. When my husband went to... More
