We enjoyed our stay here, the resort is clean and well maintained. The staff seemed to be quite friendly as well. Our problems began after we checked out when I realized I had forgotten my ipad charger in the condo. We checked out around 10am, and returned later the same day around 6pm. We were told it wasn't in the... More

During our two-week stay, we saw that the communication between the front desk and help was lacking. We had workers knock on our door in order to do some work on the roof outside our lanai and they had to come back again. The desk never called us to ask us if it was ok. They just showed up. We...

I stayed here as a spectator for Ironman 2014 and it was great. Yes its about 8km out of town but its an easy drive or bike ride into town and its nice and quiet so your out of the hustle and bustle of Kona in the lead up to the race. The villas are clean and spacious and well... More

Traded timeshare for this location and I felt is was a good location for us to visit north and south areas of the island. The room was nice but walls were thin. We asked to be moved to a second floor because we had a family above us and we could hear everything very clearly. (kids running back and forth,... More

Very nice grounds, units are large and well furnished. Nice ocean view from our unit. Most convenient to all points on the island. This is a rather quiet area but with easy access to all the happenings on Alii drive. Now they have a shuttle into town from the nearby shopping area.

Really a 3.5 but since that's not available, it gets rounded down to a 3 because of the shortcomings. We've stayed here on several occasions and the value is very good. The grounds are well maintained and the lanai was very spacious. Parking was very easy and as I said in the title, the units are very spacious. However most... More

is NOT a beachfront property . . . But a good value for the price. You have to drive a ways to find a beach. The lanais are very spacious as are the rooms. They do need updating though. The oven must be 50 years old. The shower heads where not good for much. Wifi was so bad I had... More
