We stayed here for 7 days and enjoyed every minute. It was clean and spacious. The back porch to our unit was lovely and made for a great place to hang out for dinners that we prepared ourselves. Having a washer and dryer was a bonus so we could wash our beach clothes and towels. The staff was very helpful... More

First of all, lets talk about managing expectations. When on the big island, it is hard to complain about anything. The island is awesome and we had a great time there. The location of this property is just out of walking distance of the main drag in town. Kailua is an interesting, slightly scrungy little town and my family of... More

I was so impressed with this resort. We were in building 18 which is right in the center of the resort; we lucked out that there was a parking area right in front which was perfect. We never had any issues finding spots, but then again we were almost always back to the resort by 8pm or so. I called... More

Booked through Hawaiian Airlines at the recommendation of friend. Did not disappoint! Wish we would have stayed longer. Large accommodation with kitchen and two bedroom/two bath for a family of 5. Two full showers and washer/dryer were lifesavers. Plenty of space to eat on balcony and local pool was easily accessible for quick dip. Love, love, love this place. Can't... More

This is a wonderful property for a family or group. The minute we pulled into the property, we knew it's a comfortable and quiet place. The unit is a very spacious 2 bedroom with 2 baths, a functional kitchen and a good size lanai for dining and relaxing. The property is well maintained with lush landscaping, staff are helpful and...

Nice resort, convenient location, well maintained. Staff were helpful. We had a 2 bedroom condo, well stocked kitchen. Only improvements I would suggest are to put a kettle in the rooms and improve the fan on the lanai. We had a bees nest on our balcony which James at the resort did a great job of removing!

This is a great place for families to base themselves in Kona. It is centrally located and huge. The rooms are actually two and three bedroom apartment style with full kitchens and washer/dryer combo. The kitchens are nice for preparing meals with basic amenities. The pools are nice although smallish and there used to be a bar at one of... More

Aloha, Thank you for sharing this Tripadvisor review. Kona Hawaiian units are all 2-bedroom with 2 bath, and full kitchen. The pool bar is added as part of the Hawaiian theme of the resort, however it is actually our in-house activities area. No restaurant on site, nearest restaurant within just over a mile. Kona weather is very ideal for year... More

The atmosphere and grounds are awesome. It is right on Ali road so it is close to all the beaches and shopping around Kona. We called 2 weeks ahead and requested an upper unit in a quiet area with an ocean view. We were definitely rewarded! Our unit was in the very back of the complex second floor. The view... More

Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Accomodations were beautiful and close to everything. Loved the outside porch (ants were only problem but probably to be somewhat expected). Pool and jacuzzi with waterfall were highlights. Could use a tikki bar attendant at the tikki bar to serve drinks. Orientation first day was a must to plan your week.
