I recently stayed in the Kona Reef Resort. The room was spacious, updated and had a good view of the ocean. The grounds are very well maintained. I booked a few tours and Lauren at the front desk was so helpful and knowledgeable. What a great smile she has. I just loved what she recommended. I am definitely going to... More

Checking in at the Raintree offices for Kona Reef could not have been smoother. The process was fast and efficient while never feeling like they were rushing anything. Our room had a wall mounted AC unit in the main room which never seemed to be able to fully cool the bedroom on the other end of the unit so this... More

I had called the Kona Reef in advance about the possibility of checking in before the published 3:00PM time. I was told it would be no problem, and that it would be noted on our reservation. The person was friendly on the phone so I was expecting more of that when we actually arrived, and checked in. Well that didn't... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Kona Reef. As you noted, the condos are either oceanview (generally overlooks the pool but has a view of the ocean) or oceanfront (located about 30 feet from the ocean with total ocean view). In addition to being one of the closest condo complexes to Kona's shops and... More

We stayed in D24 so had a full ocean front view of spinner dolphins, body boarders and surfers, outrigger canoes and a huge cruise ship. The facilities were nice, quiet and in a great location --- easy walk to a dozen or more restaurants and a few shops. Its only 8 miles from the airport and a 10 minute drive... More

We were pleased with our stay in B-27. Very nice ocean view from the living room and balcony. Nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer (and yes, detergent supplied) and ACs in living and bedrooms. Very comfortable. Great location. Beach almost on the property. Restaurants , coffee shops convenience stores in 10 min walking distance. Only two things we suggest to... More

What a great location! A beautiful sandy beach just below our deck, a great view of the water, and downtown within walking distance. We spent every morning on the deck, sipping coffee and watching surfers. It was very quiet and the condo was well equipped. We did not use the pool or hot tub (too busy exploring the island) but...

This condo was in a great location to walk to everything in Kailua-Kona so we could park the car - easy, free parking - and walk wherever and whenever we wanted. The grounds were nice. The unit we stayed in was a bit dated, and could have used some updating on decor and amenities. The washing machine in the unit... More

We are using our points through Diamond International and we have an ocean front , second floor with large lanai. We have a full suite , well appointed but sleep on the pullout since the AC is in living room. Bedroom has large queen but no open window and no AC reaches it. We prefer sound of the ocean and...

We reserved 2 nights here at the end of our visit to Hawaii. Our drive from Volcano took longer than expected, so we did not arrive until 5 minutes before the office was supposed to close. Not early enough for the manager, she was long gone. Security provided us with our unit number and access to the key. I was... More
