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

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.

Be sure to pay a little extra and get an ocean front room - the view is amazing. I love this property and as... More

We sat in the lounge area one evening and had a great time. Feet up, great sunset, great drinks, great appy's, great service. We went again expecting a similar experience, and after waiting a good 20 minutes watching the staff linger by the bar while ignoring us, we left.

Every time I visit Hawaii, I end of dining that the restaurant multiple times. I haven't stayed here in about 10 years though. The one time that I did, it was nice.

Pupus and Mai tai , always an essential part of our annual pilgrimage to Kona, throw in staff with pizazz and fresh food! 'We'll be back'!
