Unit Features – We had a 2 BR/ 2 Bath unit. It had optional air conditioning ($11 per day energy surcharge) as well as ceiling fans. It had a nice lanai facing the golf course and ocean with high-end teak furniture and table for four. It had an electronic safe in the kitchen closet. Kitchen Features – It had a... More

Avoid Phase 1. There were cockroaches in the kitchen at all times of the day; and the unit I occupied (12-204) had a wasp nest at the front door. Took several long minutes to get hot water in the shower. Carpet was stained and looked dirty - I never walked around barefoot. Nice to have a garage and large covered... More

We were lucky to have a view condo. Second floor, great breeze. We did not pay $11 per day for air conditioning, and early June I turned out not to be necessary. Actually, we liked it better having the fresh Hawaiian breeze come thru. All the help was very friendly, great deasl at Splash the towel and rental shop. Location... More

There are 2 parts. The older part I has tile roofs. If you are in part II the roof will be metal with solar panels. Part II is all timeshare. Part I is partially privately owned, so there are more differences in furnishings in Part I.

Three of us stayed in a two-bedroom unit at the Kona Coast Resort in early June 2015. Overall rating is for value. Location is in Keauhou, about 10-15 minutes (driving) south of Kailua-Kona proper. While the resort itself is very quiet, there's a shopping mall very close to the condo with a grocery store, drug store, gas station, and several... More

We recently enjoyed a nice stay at the Kona Coast Resort! You will need a car, which was not an issue for my family as the resort was our base camp for traveling across the big island. It is close to Kahaluu Beach park, which was our favorite for snorkeling, Paddleboarding, and surfing. Also, do not go crazy trying to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at the Kona Coast Resort. It is about a 4 mile drive along Alii Drive to the Kona downtown area and is away from any noise. It is about a 4 mile drive to Wal-Mart, Safeway and K-Mart then about 7 miles to Costco. Costco is about 3 miles from the airport and... More

This resort was PERFECT for our family of four. We had a two bedroom villa and it was MASSIVE! The full kitchen and large living area was such a great luxury. Well maintained resort with friendly staff and great comfort. The only drawback for us is that there is no beach access, but it ended up not being a big... More

We booked this trip very last minute (two days prior to leaving) and got a steal on this resort. It was a short girls trip and since we were going to be gone from the resort most of the time we didn't expect much for our money. Holy smokes, what a surprise!! The one bedroom condo was HUGE!! It was... More
