It's All Here!

Stayed here for a day room and found the pool great. They have a ocean pool that is exclusive to guests and is fresh ocean water trapped in a rocky bay. Wonderful swim without the waves of the open sea. Add Don's Mai Tai bar to the mix and there is a great mix of why you should stay here.... read more

The hotel has a great location however it has seen better days. We had several issues with our room and while maintenance was great about fixing them they showed a trend. The hotel only fixes items that are broken over care and repair as left until failure. The staff were polite.

We stayed at the Royal Kona using Diamond points so can't comment on the value. Great view from our room. In its day this would have been the place to stay. Now though it is crying for some paint, flooring and oil for the wood trim. Beyond the tired look however were positives. The staff (except in the bar) were... More

We thought we would try Don The Beachcomber as this was the origin of the Mai Tai. Not only was it great but they also offered a Mai Tai sampler. The kids were able to use the pool while we sat next to the pool at the bar. Great atmosphere and food. Do not miss this gem.

As a family we decided to stay at a resort and this is the one. For 3 people it was spacious and very clean albeit a little old, but who cares. The condo had all the amenities that you would need. Home from home. From the onsite cafe, you could see a wonderful set. Staff were very helpful and always... More

The luau was great. The entertainment was very nice with a lot of history. My sons got asked to participate with the dancers. Plenty of food and drinks.

we actually stayed at the Kona Tiki Hotel just down the road and walked here. They have great artists every Thursday nite that they feature at their outdoor bar! It was a great setting and the entertainment was awesome!

We booked an ocean front room and left door open and heard the waves all night long... We enjoyed that... This is an older hotel so do not expect a palace.. My friend leaves in Hawaii so we got a decent discount on our room and also 2 for 1 buffet breakfast so 2 for 19.95 it was good at... More
