This is our 2nd time to this timeshare property. The first time was 10 years ago. Honestly, it seems the furnishings have not been updated or replaced. The property is showing its age. The location is nice and quiet. Nearby restaurants and markets make it convenient to stock up for your stay. Sam Choy and KTA are literally walking distance... More

First impression, the resort is well-maintained. Beautiful landscape. We arrived early and to our sweet surprise the room was ready. You can catch beautiful sunset views from the hot tub in the pool area or at the pool-side restaurant. The condo was large and cleaned well. The furniture, especially the couch and side chair, were a bit dingy but that... More

Whenever we go to the "Big Island," the Kona Coast Resort is our destination of choice. We have stayed in the newer and older sections of the resort. Due to constant remodeling and updating all of the units are very nice. If your flight gets you to the island early you can drop your belongings off at the Kona Coast... More

This was the best resort I have been so far. There was a golf view from our room but the coast was just few steps away. There will be no better place to watch sunset. We have so many restaurants opposite the resort and even a movie theatre. Do prefer this place if it is in your price range.

This is a great resort! I recently traded through RCI to stay in Kona Coast Resort II which is the newer part of the resort(1990). I had a beautiful one bedroom with a golf course/ocean view. The resort is quiet and close enough to downtown Kailua-Kona so that you can walk(if you feel that industrious) or drive(5 min). There's a... More

We were all super impressed with this hotel! When we first got here! We were all quite jet-lagged from the 7 hour flight and it was great to be able to relax. The staff at the front desk was quite slow when we checked in however. The rooms were excellent! They were spacious and modern, and the beds were extremely... More

My husband and I recently stayed here on our honeymoon. When we arrived and got to our room were were happy with the accommodations. The room seemed spacious and nice and we had a nice view of the water. However, that's quickly changed when on our first morning there we realized that we were sharing our room with cockroaches.

We bought a timeshare at the Kona Coast Resort, Phase II back in 2004 and it is one of the best purchases we've ever made. Our timeshare week gives us an excuse to visit this wonderful property every year. We don't ever trade in our week, because Kona is like our second home and we love staying at the Kona... More

We rented a 1 bedroom condo privately from the owner. We arrived around midnight on a Friday night and could not get into the unit because the lockbox had a number that was stuck. We telephoned the owner but could only leave a message. We were worried that we would have to find another room for our 1st night or... More
