I wanted to take the time to write this review because I was very unsure about this resort when I was making our reservations based on other reviews I had read. The outcome....I would NOT stay at this resort again unless I could not find another place to stay for a reasonable price. IF (big IF) I had to stay... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon. There is definitely a type of person who would enjoy this resort, but honeymooners are not it. The place feels a bit like a retirement community. Or perhaps Kellerman's. Our villa had a disappointing view of the tennis courts. I knew the ocean was off in the distance somewhere,... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for a week in late March 2014 and had a wonderful time. The resort has some great features for it's guests, our personal favourites were the shared BBQs and the herb gardens to add a little extra flavour to our meals. There is a small strip-mall nearby where you can get your groceries if... More

I was a tiny bit nervous before we arrived at this destination, because some of the reviews for units expressed disappointment with outdated suites. Ours was absolutely fantastic!! We had a gorgeous one bedroom suite. Could have stayed there for a month!! This is not a daily housekeeping property, however anytime we needed something extra they responded very quickly. We...

We just spent 7 days at the Kona Coast Resort. The resort was easy to find, and I found it extremely convenient to outside amenities. It is not on the beach, but within walking distance. It is located outside of the downtown area, avoiding any traffic hassles; which I appreciated. The room was a great size, but still had yet... More

We traded our timeshare in Belize which is considered Premier with Interval International for Kona Coast which is also Premier with Interval International. The unit we stayed in was old and outdated except for the bathrooms which have been partially updated. The doors and trim need some work. Also, the windows in the bathroom would be a nice addition if... More

7 day stay at this fabulous resort. My husband, myself and 15 yo daughter. Checking in at 5pm was not a problem, fast, efficient and very simple. Right into the unit immediately with assistance with our bags readily available. One downside, no elevators, and pulling luggage up 3 flights of stairs was a bit difficult but got it done. Don't...

3rd trip to Kona Coast Resort and it was more or less the same lovely experience. We had asked for the room we had twice before but were out of luck.
