The staff are friendly and efficient. The room we had was clean and comfortable. Two spacious bedrooms with their own bathrooms. A small kitchen and washer/dryer combo made it very easy for our family of 5 to be fed and comfortable. We even discovered a small elevated herb garden near one of the picnic areas they have around the complex... More

We just finished our third stay at KCR, bit the first since it was taken over by Wyndham. While it's still a pretty decent property, the suite we stayed in was quite worn out and very much in need of updating. For example, the seat foam in the easy chair was so compressed that we had to put another pillow... More

Really liked this property. Clean, well maintained and very responsive staff. The sunsets are great and there are a million things to do. Ocean facing rooms are suggested. This is very much a family resort and my family really enjoyed it. So bring the family and enjoy Kona.

I stayed here from July 25 it August 1, 2015. We had a one bedroom. Unit 17-203. This villa was very shabby. It is in need of rehab. It actually smells bad too. Most likely because they don't keep the AC on unless you are paying for it. Everything smells and feels musty. I had to wash all the dishes... More

Room service was not the best. Even asking for toilet paper was a hassle. Nice resort and rooms but we had roaches in our kitchen so we had to complain and even then thy did nothing. It was not until my dad took coach roaches in a napkin to the front desk that they believed us. We've been to many... More

Overall This is a EXTREMELY well kept resort. As i first looked at some of these reviews, i was very nervous. However, we booked KCR through RCI and were not disappointed. We stayed in building 30 room 301 (top floor), and had a very wonderful view of the ocean. Only 5% of their rooms have ocean view so we completely... More

It's a beautiful resort in a great location. The staff was helpful and cheerful. The grounds were lovely and both pools were clean and attractive. We walked the nature path most mornings.
