          How do guests visit the Volcano National Park without renting a car?

          You would definitely need to take a tour (some tour companies pick you up right at the resort) or have a rental car. The volcano park is quite a distance from Kona.

          Hi Joanne and everyone else. I just returned from the Big Island myself yesterday and spent some time at the Royal Kona also and enjoyed it. I just want to say that it is my understanding that when a service fee is added to a group of 6 or more, that it is indeed considered the tip. I thought that it is why the amount is always higher than the standard 15% and is therefore incorporated mandatory in groups of 6 or more even here in California. I do not believe that another tip should be added. I look forward to reading some clarification of this. Mahalo
