We went back to Kona by the Sea for a special anniversary after staying there about 20 years ago and loving it. We again were not disappointed in our "ocean front" unit! Here's what we like about the property: you are right ON the ocean - the waves break about 50' off your lanai; there is a nice sandy area... More

We stayed for one week in July. On arrival the unit we were initially given wasn't what I had paid for. However the office staff were great and it turns out the travel agent messed up our reservation. We were given an ocean front unit which is what I had booked and it was superb. Beautiful rooms, full kitchen, unsurpassed... More

Stayed one week in July. Had a two bedroom, with two twins, one king and one pullout sofabed. Ocean front, and we were able to see the pool too. Underground parking on site excellent. Elevator access to suites from parking area. Air conditioning a bonus as it was mighty hot during our stay. Other bonuses, DAILY MAID SERVICE and in... More

Our first time in a condo in Hawaii and were we pleased we picked this one! the view from our fourth floor (there's an elevator) lanai was so lovely: the surf, the sand, the palms, the attractive pool and grounds and the busy birdlife all there before you! We opted for one bedroom since there were but two of us... More

We were late booking for our three week four island Hawaii trip so there wasn't much selection in mid price hotels on the big island. We thougth we would take a chance with a condo and we delightfully surprised with Kona by the Sea. The resort is a couple of miles south of the business district on the ocean. I... More

If you are looking for a great mid-priced condo with a killer view - this is it! We loved our stay here. For someone like me, who is NOT excited about parading around in a bathing suit with a ton of people watching - this is also it! It's a great, smaller property. We enjoyed the beachside gas grills available... More

We chose to stay here based on the reviews seen on Trip Advisor and thought they were a pretty fair guide as to what to expect. The resort is well located and though you will need to drive at night in order to access restaurants etc., the oceanfront location is idyllic. We stayed in an oceanfront 2-bedroom unit on the...
