“Royal Kona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Best location at Kona. Beautiful view from room and Don the Beachcombers bar. Luau on premises. Can walk to all the fun restaurants/bars. Hotel is showing it's age and rooms could use renovation. For the price though, it is a good value!

“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This restaurant has one of the best views on the Island. It has a casual Island atmosphere. Dining here is a true Hawaiian Island experience. Or, just stop by for a drink. Happy Hour is a daily occurance. Drink and food prices are very competitive. Food portions are large. You won't go away hungry.

“Great views and food”

Had a drink at the hotel bar/restaurant. Reasonably priced compared to the area and views of ocean and sunset are awesome.

“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!!
