While the resort is a 10 minute drive from the centre of Kona, it still has a lot to recommend it. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was big and spacious. Room is very clean, well equiped, very comfortable, bed excellent. There's a large pool, spa & fitness centre. Quiet and serene surroundings. There's also a shopping precinct nearby.... More

Having previously vacationed on the Big Island a few years ago, we did not do much in the way of sightseeing this time. Rather, we came for a relaxing holiday for seven days from May 7th – 14th, 2015. At Kona Coast Resort Phase 11, we found tranquility in beautiful peaceful surroundings. An awesome resort – so well maintained and... More

Have been coming to Kona Coast Resort (KCR) for over 20 years. Have always loved the facility. Recently the ownership changed from Shell Hospitality to Wydham Resorts. Some of the changes that I see made me change my rating from 5 to 4. With all the facilities and and space in the units you cannot go wrong. I must give... More

First off, I would probably rate this as 3.5, but I'll round up. Good location. Close to a super market and other amenities. Quick drive (or bike ride) into "downtown" Kailua-Kona. All the amenities you could possibly need are in the condo-like room: kitchen, two large bathrooms, washer-dryer and so forth. It was also nice to have a king-size bed.... More

This Hotel has some of the best accommodations that I have ever seen. It is not the newest but the apartment type accommodations were in good shape with fully functioning kitchen including stove, oven, microwave dishwasher, sink, some food preparation pots, pans ect. Good Air Conditioning, and a bed that was very comfortable. A nice bonus is a free washer... More

This hotel is right in the popular area of Kona, centrally located to all of the action. There are several restaurants within walking distance as well as a Farmers Market and lots of shopping. Rooms are nice, just be sure and book the updated rooms.

I would say 4.5 out of 5 only thing missing is a nicer beach alongside the hotel. Melissa wood was amazing assisting our family with booking a few day trips and providing us with island information. the rooms were comfortable, clean except looks like a few carpet stains but who cares when you're in paradise.

Room is large but very dated. Like the 70s. Old big couch and big chairs. Dark in color which makes the living room gloomy. The cabinetry looks like it is about to fall off. The main TV in the living room is 23 inch TV. The bedroom TV is an old 29 inch tube TV. Like I said old. Not... More
