My husband and I stayed in unit H with friends for a week in August and didn't have a single complaint.The sofa sleeper opened up to a very nice size bed and the unit's kitchen was well stocked with all the pots and pans that we needed to cook stay in meals. Close enough to eat out for all meals,... More

Excellent location if you enjoy being within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, night life ( therefore, noisy at night so bring earplugs). Condo was clean, spacious for two people, well stocked with towels and kitchen supplies, basic but adequate furnishings.

Nice condo. It is a very good location in kona. Shopping and good food is with in a good walk of billfisher condos. Condos are equipped wit a/c, tv with cable and a very nice kitchen. There is no night desk to check in but there is a night box with instructions. Apartments are a little hard to find at... More

I will start by saying the attitude of the 2 older ladies in the office really needs to be corrected. They act like its a imposition when you walk in and they HAVE to help you in some way. Not what you would expect from anyone in Hawaii. Charging for AC is ridiculous and the WiFi was a joke. 20... More

The Kona Billfisher is a small owner managed time share complex that is unique in that it is owned in 1 month increments. Therefor, our focus is to provide our owners with a clean, attractive vacation home in Hawaii. Our owners return year after year, and some own multiple units to stay longer than just a month. Many are original... More

I always enjoy staying in condos when I travel because I like to have a kitchen and extra space. The Kona Billfisher is just ok....the rooms definitely need to be updated, but the grounds and rooms are very clean. Everything on the other reviews are true...extra fees for wi-fi, air conditioner, laundry, No elevator, ants come in the kitchen area,... More

The Kona Billfisher is a small owner managed timeshare where each of the owners owns 4 consecutive weeks. Many owners return year after year to enjoy Hawaii among their friends, the fellow owners. The WIFI is expensive to maintain, therefor those who choose to use it share in the cost. BTW our WIFI charges and other charges are much less... More

Although the location was fine, if I had to do it over I would have stayed in Hilo. I would have been closer to waterfalls and to the volcano. This resort has too many rules -- "NO MARCO POLO IN THE POOL?!?!" It appears to be run by an older group of people who like things their own way --... More

All the mattresses are less than 4 years old and were selected for their comfort for the majority of our Owners. They are the same as used in most of the resorts in Kona, but sleep comfort is a personal issue for everyone. Because of the proximity to the pool, Marco Polo is forbidden as it is in many pool...

I was not expecting much, and that's what we got: Not much. There was a reason this was one of the only RCI available properties in Kona. The word is out. PRO: Close to down town and the tourist area. Has a pool. Nicely landscaped. Nice bed and linen. Linen exchanged twice a week. Pretty well stocked. Paid laundry room.... More

Stayed at the Kona Billfisher last August. Tidy condo, with all the amenities we needed for our stay. I especially loved the pool area. Love the location too - right next to the village and close to lovely beaches. Not a big rowdy resort, so got a good sleep every night. Will be going back there next year. Definitely recommend...
