Outstanding suites. Great pool. Missing dining and cocktail facilities on site however close to offsite facilities. Beach is next door. Great view of the ocean. Helpful staff from Raintree on site. Thanks for everything Loren.

Unit D-28 is well-appointed and equipped. 2 couples and a 2-year-old toddler spent a week here and we were pleased. We like to cook, and there was plenty of equipment to satisfy our needs. This corner unit proved plenty of privacy and a gorgeous view. Each morning we walked to the market and bought fresh fruit. The local papayas were... More

Condo D1 had 1" of dust, rusted frig and dirty scent. Then they put us in A35 which had pubic hair and makeup on the sheets. I left and stayed at the Marriott, which you can always trust. I will not got back to Kona Reef or Kona. Not a good way to start off 2016

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that the units you saw/stayed in at the Kona Reef were in such bad condition. Potential guests have a hard time understanding how one person can give the property a one star review while someone else gives it 5 stars. The answer is that there are... More

I arrived late that evening and had problems with the lock box. They immediately sent someone to help me figure it out--wow! What prompt response. The condo is centrally located on Alii Drive with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and tourist attractions. The room was very comfortable with every convenience, and the view from my room was incredible! Thank... More

We stayed in Unit A26 last week and wow. The Lanai is right in front of the ocean and a school of Spinner Dolphins swam by every morning. The unit is very well equipped with everything needed to enjoy Kona and the surrounding area. The location is perfect, close enough to walk anywhere in town, far enough to stay quite... More

Kona Reef B-27 Had a great time in this comfortable well-appointed condo. They had everything we needed and it is in such a great location. Loved walking to dinner and driving down the coast for snorkeling, etc. Highly recommended!

First of all I want to explain the 4 star on my review. The complex (exterior) is somewhat dated and in need of rejuvenating. But Unit D17, is recently update, with a beautiful kitchen and an amazing ocean front view. We watched dolphins and breaching whales while relaxing on the lanai. I would absolutely recommend this unit....reasonably priced for a... More

Initially we were booked into rm. 202. I was really disappointed because the entry was off a stair well and the "view" was of a stone retaining wall. I went to the office and they readily changed us to a third floor with a view of the ocean, Very nice and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. It... More

This is a nicely located older condo complex within fairly easy walking distance from most of downtown Kona which makes it very convenient. Our unit, A-35, needs some upgrades, esp to the AC, which barely cools the living room. Since they charge and extra "utility fee" upon checkout, along with your cleaning fee, it doesn't seem like a very good... More
