“Fantastic Weekend of Dive Club Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The resort was clean, spacious and great for a relaxing weekend. We came to dive and choose this resort for the location. We were not disappointed. The bar and pool are great places to hang out and the breakfast buffet was delicious. We even saw pods of dolphins and rays feeding on the reef. The location can't be beat! You can walk to everything! Our rooms were upgraded and the views were spectacular! The staff was friendly and accommodating. Big mahalo to Marites for helping with booking this group and making sure everyone was happy with their accommodation! Highly recommend!!

“Luau at Royal Kona Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The luau at the Royal Kona Resort was very good. The food was good and plentiful, and the entertainment was very good. With the waves breaking in the background it offers a spectacular setting for the Luau. The fire dancer was the hit of the show and quite an amazing athlete. If you are in the Kailua Kona area I would definitely recommend this Luau.

“Would go back - must have an ocean view room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Didn't like our room in the Lagoon Tower ... upgraded to a room with an ocean view in the Bay Tower (thanks Peter!). Great location ... close to restaurants, market, shops ... friendly staff at hotel & nearby restaurants

“Great location lousy food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The breakfast buffet was a waist of time and no omelet station or eggs cooked to order. It was a old and out dated style. Dull and boring even after 1 meal let alone signing up for multiple days on vacation. Look for others in the area.
