    Aloha, and thank you for taking the time to post on Trip Advisor! You begin by saying that you did not complain to management, and I'm very sorry you did not. While it is true we were full, our goal is to make each of our guests feel as though Kona by the Sea is their vacation home in Hawaii.... More

    Kona by the Sea is an average condo. However, if you are booking in advance, I would suggest asking for one of the renovated condos. We had trouble w/ some clogged drains in the shower. For the price, it was good. The location was across from a smaller open air market. It's about a 7 min drive from town. Would... More

    Overall i really enjoyed my stay there mainly because the rooms were extremely spacious (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms shared between 2 people) and the views were magnificent.

    We stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Hawaii. We stayed for a week in August 2008. It was everything we wanted and more. We booked a 2 bedroom oceanview, but it was more like an oceanfront. Our master bedroom was right off the lanai and we went to sleep every night to the sound of crashing waves.... More
