Very friendly and efficient service. Very clean with new furnishings and countertops, flooring and fittings. Obviously a somewhat dated building but it has been modernized and meets all our needs. I will be able to say more when we complete our stay her but so far we feel it is a place we would return to. Early days yet but... More

We loved this property! Secure parking underground so it is shaded, clean units, friendly staff. There is appetizers and music on Mondays and Tuesday's at sunset, and lei making on Fridays at the family pool! The "quiet" pool is perfect for adults who want to relax. We did have one problem and that was the air conditioning sensor kept detaching... More

We are looking forward to our upcoming 3 week stay at the Royal Sea Cliff! We are return vacationers and can't say enough good about our experience last year!

If you are a Platinum Member you can reserve your choice of location at this resort relegating others to what's left over...even if you are booking a full year in advance. It's a smoke free resort but they can't and don't do well with enforcement so when the guy below you lights up...your choice is close your doors and move... More

I booked my wife's and my holiday travel through one of the online sites and Wyndham presented itself to us as a highly-rated 3-star hotel. But beware, this is not a hotel. It is a timeshare and the facility offers few, if any, hotel amenities: no linen service, no room cleaning, no fresh towels, no room service - nothing. The... More

Aloha David, I am so sorry that we failed to meet your expectations. The Wyndham Royal Sea Cliff is a condominium complex. We do have a Front Desk and on-site Housekeeping services; all units have full kitchens and washer/dryers and therefore we offer a different sort of experience for our guests. I can certainly understand where you would be disappointed... More

I thought I was in Greece or southern Italy when I looked around the property - angular stark white buildings set against the blue Pacific - certainly not Hawaiian in atmosphere but pleasant all the same. Our unit was clean and the kitchen was well-equipped with a blender and rice cooker along with the other amenities although the unit could... More

Aloha and thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. The architecture is quite unique and so we have filled the atrium with beautiful tropical plants and flowers to give it more of a Hawaiiana feel. I have also heard people say that the building reminds them of being on a cruise ship. Both... More

This property is pretty good - the kitchens are renovated to a high standard, and the furnishings are also appealing. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and the island orientation was useful. The main pool is right on the ocean with a terrific view, and there are some seats at the end of the corridors by the ocean... More

This Wyndham property was probably once stunning, but is now dated and drab. Don't expect to see the ocean from this Hotel. If you go up to the top floor, and look over the railing you can see a portion of it. Next time we will stay closer to the town of Kona, the walk to town along the roadway... More
