We really enjoy eating at the bar here. More casual and if you get a seat on the ocean side you will be gifted the most beautiful view of the sunset.

They also have a happy hour food menu with good prices on some items and other small plates on the same menu. All of the food was very good and the service was great. You can sit close to... More

I've never had a complete meal here but Pina Coladas, coconut shrimp apps and the SUNSET views are why I come the the Royal Kona resort. They usually have some live entertainment going on( catch Brian Vasquez for excellent ukulele performances).

Went to Don's Mai Tai Bar for appetizers and drinks, and enjoyed both. Got the original Mai Tai here--very good. Had the ahi tuna appetizer, which was delicious, and my husband got the Island Breeze salad, also very good. The views are wonderful, overlooking the harbor, and also the luau. Fun time!

$10 to park. $10 for internet. 30% fees & taxes on top of the advertised price of the room. Not much different than most places in this very touristy part of Hawaii, but still very annoying. The architecture is wonderfully fun/traditional but I checked in at 8:30p and the pool was already closed. No beach, crashing rocky surf so it... More

The breakfasts while watching the ocean and keeping the birds away from your table. The luau was unique even during a slight drizzle.

You get a real feel for old school Hawaiian flavor. The hotel is on the water and the open air bar area cannot be beat. the rooms are dated, but the service is great and we love staying there.
