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bit nervous before we arrived at this destination, because some of the reviews for units expressed disappointment with outdated suites.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 have owned time share at Kona coast resort since 1996. convenient to snorkel. pool and tennis are nice. wish there was more of a restaurant, as only one is kinda bar food at the pool. the units and resort are well maintained. since recently bought by Wyndham, they are putting on some money to upgrade.

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 The unit we stayed in was old and outdated except for the bathrooms which have been partially updated.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. We got ground floor in building 18 - great lovely big lanai with nice view of golf course. Lots of feathered friends came looking for breakfast scraps every morning,... More

We stayed here with two older adults and 4 grown kids over 21. The condo was roomy enough that we weren't on top of each other. Bed was comfortable upon arrival but they still replaced it during our stay. The resort has no beach on the property but the golf course seemed closed so we would walk over to the... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Kona Coast Resort in a 2 bedroom condo. it was luxurious! Only disappointing thing is that Check in is at 4pm. Us Aussies are used to 2pm at the latest but apparently in Hawaii 3pm is more the norm but I think 4pm is too late. Sunset was 6.30pm. This place is huge. You need... More
