“A Beautiful Resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

We just returned from a week's stay at this wonderful place. The setting is absolutely gorgeous! The condo we stayed in was huge with every possible amenity. Everything is clean and well-groomed; the programs at the pool (all free with food, entertainment and information - and no timeshare sales!!!) were all wonderful. The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. We loved this resort and can't think of a single complaint!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Our family stayed here for a week in December. We had a updated 2 bedroom unit. The unit was massive!!!! Perfect for the whole family. We asked for a room near the water and they accommodated us putting us right near the ocean with a wonderful view from the balcony.

We traded our timeshare through RCI and couldn't have been more pleased with this property. Great location in Kona, newer furniture in room, and they actually had comfortable beds which is not something you see in many timeshare rentals. Even the fold out bed in the living room had a very nice newer pillow top mattress!

Like a lot of places in tropical environments you are bound to get bugs (Ants) if you leave food out. We saw a few ants in the room on the first day and just kept ALL food in the fridge and didn't have a problem.

The pool could have been nicer and if you don't get a good view and renovated unit it may not be so good as I peaked in some other units that were not as nice as ours. So I give this place 4 out of 5.

Also if you do not unplug your phone they will call you daily to sell you a timeshare....just unplug the phone and you will have no problems! :o)

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room that has a ocean view!

Huge rooms, great location, nice walk to "town", helpful staff. Decor somewhat dated but comfortable and our 2 bedroom was just huge! Kitchen was very well stocked. Easy access to Kona and numerous surrounding attractions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal Sea CLiff. The service was excellent and the 2 pools were nice and warm even in December. We had a 2 bedroom deluxe unit. It was very spacious, clean and well equipped. There was lots of room for my 2 young children to celebrate Christmas and play with all their toys. Also so great space if you had 2 couples in the unit as both bedrooms are nice sized and offer privacy. Kona is a beautiful island and the resort is located close to town, beach and restaurants.

Please do not use CRuz'n taxi. The fellow had my 2 small kids in the back sea was talking on his cell and writing down directions on a piece of paper while driving on the highway. He then said we were rude when we asked him to pull over for safety. The hotel took care of this for us as well.

The ocean views from the resort is beautiful. Large lanais and well kept grounds.

Room Tip: The staff at the front is very helpful and will try and accommodate your requests even in the busy s...

We check into a beautiful 2 bedroom suite that had a very musty odour. We were told the climate was humid and some rooms smelled that way. Went shopping for febreeze, while spraying the hallway, stepped on wet carpet below vent and then went on to discover mold in kitchen vent. At bedtime, we discovered ants (lots of them) in our bed. Called front desk, security came and said we had to move out of 421. Upon a visual inspection of the next room, 310, we also discovered many ants. Off to 312. Ants in kitchen, which we dealt with by buying raid. This was first room that did not smell musty. Front desk apologized and we were told Carol would be contacting us. The only contact was "hope to see you at the pool later" and that was as good as it got. We were not able to attend due to other committments. No further attempt to contact us in regard to our stay, ant or mould problem. View was great and Kona hospitality was awsome. I don't beleive that all the hotels have ants and mould just because! More detail to cleanliness could be applied. Corners and hard to reach places were far from clean. Most hotels would supply a complimentary something to show some kind of remorse for their short comings.

We were at this resort November 2011. The resort was GREAT. The rooms were clean, quiet and well stocked. The employees were all very professional and called to check to see if we needed anything on a daily basis. The staff was very informative and helpful in everything that we inquired about. You can view the ocean from the back of the property. However, there is no beach access there, but a beautiful view. Will stay with them again next time we go to islands.

We recently traded into this property through RCI. On their advice I called a few weeks before check in to request an oceanview oceanfront room as they are limited on this property. On the phone and upon check in, we were advised that they would do their best but those rooms are reserved from Wyndham Premier owners. Upon check in we were told nothing was available and given room #111. Upon entering we were thrilled to find not only were we steps from the north pool (although our patio still was private) we also had a view of the ocean! It was a perfect location. The unit is two bedroom with two full baths and extremely spacious.

There are several activites available put on by the staff - we only attended the Aloha Party and highly recommend it.

Be sure to try out Lava Java Bistro! View of the water/sunsets, they offer a Sunset special for 50% entrees, no corkage fee for bringing your own wine, and great breakfasts too!
