I booked this resort on as a deal through Travelocity. What a GEM. We did not spend a lot of time here as we were exploring the surrounding areas. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be staying here on our next visit to Kailua-Kona.

This property was built in two phases. Phase one features a mix of residential and timeshare condos. They were primarily built as full time residences. So, they are spacious and feature large living rooms, full kitchens and large master bedrooms. Phase two buildings were built as timeshare. Thus smaller spaces, but you're on vacation so there is little sacrifice. The... More

We are timeshare owners. If you have the choice to stay here, please do. These units are big enough for you to stretch out and get comfortable. You can cook if you like, dine out if you like. I love that there are two bathrooms in our units. Because, well, I like having my own space. Having a washer and... More

I would highly recommend Kona Coast Resort for the 65+ crowd. I would not recommend it for families. It's clear that the staff have tried hard to make the resort kid friendly; however, the clientele do their best to keep this as a retirement community. The owners clearly feel 'entitleled' to the pool area and do their best to make... More

We travelled here as part of our SVC Timeshare. The grounds are well maintained. The rooms while clean are quite dated with a tube tv in the bedroom. Furniture looks fine but is quite uncomfortable. However while here in Hawaii we spent little time in our room and having the option to make our own breakfasts and coffee was great.... More

We arrived on the island anticipating great accommodations at a affordable price. Well what began a bad choice resulted in a great selection in Kona Coast Resort. Bob from the Kona Sea Spray was rude and when we located our room we wanted to run. When we turned on the lights roaches were everywhere. We asked for the manager and... More

My wife stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very pleased with the resort. The rooms where nice and had plenty of room. The staff was great and very helpful. We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the ability to buy some groceries during our 8 day vacation. I highly recommend Kona Coast Resort if you are looking... More

Wonderful property. Very clean. Up to date rooms. Beautiful view of the ocean. Nice walking paths. Staff at the Activities Reservation were very helpful and tailored the activities I booked to just what I was looking to do. They were very helpful providing directions and other information about the island.

The resort is south of Kona, away from the crowds, a quieter, less crowded location. Stayed for two nights and would have been glad to stay longer. Booked through Expedia and paid at resort. Arrived near 11:00pm but no trouble with check in. Nice one bedroom unit, nicely furnished, including kitchen. They only leave enough for coffee for one morning;... More

Probably one of the best condo rental values you can find on the busier west side of the island. An older, but totally renovated property that is kept in top shape. Located about 7 miles south of Kailua Town where several condo resorts are. The staff was great and the grounds keepers were very fussy about maintaining the property every... More
