3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We were a group of five, and were slightly disappointed when we arrived to stay in a 2-bedroom privately-owned condo. It was very hot, there was no air conditioning, and being a 2-storey building, it was like a hot-house. The decor is very old and dated and the premises requires a good update! Location was good, short drive to most... More

The property is beautifully landscaped and the 3 pools were very nice--one by the ocean, one adults only, and another one in back of the office. We found the place to be very quiet, and not too far from anything. The drawbacks are that each unit is different, so it's just luck of the draw as to which one you... More

We have visited Kona many times and we decided to try The Outrigger Kanaloa. Great property; spacious suites complete with kitchens and large lanais. Clean and comfortable. Great pools (3); one adult and 2 family pools. Tennis courts as well. Stay has been enjoyable however....every toilet flush, sink drain, step that is taken above and beside us is amplified. Furniture... More

Thank you for your comments. With regard to the walls, it is double wall construction, with fiberglass insulation. Depending on what was installed prior to the tile (owner's choice), it can amplify the sounds below. Although most units have carpet. Regarding air conditioning, yes, it is a requested item, and we will do our best to accommodate such requests. Once... More

We stayed at 3503 Kanaloa for 3 weeks, late October/early November. Splendid 1 bedroom, a pullout sofa, and 2 bathrooms. On the second floor up some stores, one lanai overlooking the water, another overlooking the other condos. Could hear the waves from the lanai and dining room/living room. Really well appointed, thick carpets, nice furniture, seen some use but in... More

We lived in 2303 from October 23 to 30, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the spacious condo with a well equipped kitchen where we cooked breakfast and dinner (refrigerator with ice and water dispenser especially appreciated), two bedrooms with a bathroom for each, and a beyond fantastic view of the ocean. We paid for air conditioning as the afternoon temperature and... More

Very nice rooms and location. Would stay here again. Convenient location to shopping and dining. Hotel is on a golf course with a walking trail close the the grounds. Don't buy food at the store by the hotel very expensive.

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

Thank you for your excellent comments and rating. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation with us. Yes, this is the Big island (also nicknamed "the orchid isle") and you can spend a week just exploring it. We hope you will visit with us again on a return trip in the near future.

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
