This was our fourth 10-day visit to this property and it seems it gets better and better with each visit! We were greeted by Tony and Na Hoku and were treated like distinguished guests. I mentioned that I come here to celebrate my birthday in December. We dropped our bags in our room, went out for supplies, and when we...

I don't think I can share what I paid, but it was is the low range of condos in Kona. I was not expecting much. I did request an upper floor, ocean view and was told that it was unlikely due to the time of year. We arrived and I was told my unit had a "peek" of the ocean....

I have read other reviews before writing this one so I could touch on a few things that might be misleading by others. We booked this through Expedia. By doing so you do not pay for air or internet. You pay for air if you own a timeshare. We had a blast here. We came to the Big Island to...

A very nice place to stay. The one bedroom unit has a good size bedroom, a larger living room, a kitchen and even laundry and dryer machines. It also has 1 full bath and 1 half bath. Everything looks clean. We had a very comfortable stay.

We stayed here last January. I wrote a review back in January, but apparently TripAdvisor took it down. Maybe Wyndham resorts complained? Basically we had a room on the ground floor. We kept our lanai door locked, but in the middle of the night, as we were sleeping, someone jimmied open the doors and enter our room. They stole several...

Arrived here hoping to have a resort stay...nice spacious pools, good walking areas, lot's of restaurant, beverage options but didn't get that here. Smallish pools, very limited walking area, one restaurant. "Fitness Center" was 2 ellipticals and 1 treadmill.

We have stayed here twice now and love it. Clean condos with friendly staff. We have only used the quiet pool which is perfect for us as our son is a teenager. It's convenient to restaurants and stores but quiet as it's not in the thick of the action. Picture is a view from our condo.
