I have stayed several times with mixed results. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is an ideal location for a Hawaii Big Island visit, quiet but relatively close to Kona. The issue is considerable variance in room quality, -some of the rooms are in top condition rating 5 stars while other rooms range downwards closer to a 1... More

It was a delight to stay here, the people were very friendly, amenities very well maintained and the accommodation very spacious. We had a two bedroom unit (412) and it was huge and well equipped with all the things you would have at home. Note, this is not a place to house young people and it’s very quite around 10pm....

After reading all of the glowing reviews on this site, I was looking forward to our stay at the Royal Sea Cliff. The first room we checked into was filthy. The carpet was so bad I wouldn't take my shoes off. The bathroom moldy and the whole place just smelled funky. My husband asked the front desk to move us... More

Great size, great kitchen, we prefered upstairs for the private lanai and we could always here the ocean! Lots of space, lots of amenities on site, plenty of... More

We needed to book an Outrigger property on the Big Island and chose this one as it had kitchens and was the closest to the town of Kailua-Kona. We had an ocean view room - room 202. The building is shaped like a tree so our room was near the end of one of the branches. We did indeed have... More

The hotel looked pretty nice when we checked-in at the front desk, but when we were walking up to our room I was already starting to get bad vibes. We had a bottom floor room with a spider webs in the entrance. Once we opened the door we were greeted with a stinky room (at least it did not smell... More

How do you rate a Hotel that does not deliver its most basic promise, a good night's sleep? Imagine yourself arriving still in jetlag but you can not doze off because your neighbors drink and laugh and scream on the patio all night. It does not really matter then if your room has nice furniture (which it hadn't) or if... More

We had a very nice condo on the 7th level. The covered patio and deck afforded a gorgeous view of the ocean. Enjoyed both sunset and moon set every evening and morning. The room is nicely appointed, and had every amenity we needed. Would definitely stay there again.

Four of us have just spent one week in a Royal Sea Cliff Condo. After nine days in Waikiki this was bliss.So peaceful and quiet I 'd read some negative reports on the Outrigger Royal Sea Cliff so was a little apprehensive about what we would find . On Arrival we were greeted by a very helpful, friendly Receptionist and... More

Loved this place. Had.a sea view apartment booked. Was upgraded to sea front. Like a home.away from home only better. Beautiful, relaxing. Hire a car at the airport and take an easy drive into town for.restaurants and beaches.
