We have stayed here at least five different times. The staff here is absolutely wonderful, and the rooms are spacious, and come stocked with everything you need. The property is a short walk from downtown, which comes in handy, given the multitude of great happy hours! Our kids love the pool, and the plethora of well-maintained grills are great for... More

I am a Worldmark owner, and this was my first time staying in Kona. The room was fine...clean and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect. My only complaints would be that the cooking knives were not sharp (hard to trim a steak) and that the room had that musty, AC smell. That said, you get acclimated to the... More

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was outstanding, the room was clean and pleasant, everything worked. I liked the mattress, the a/c was great, I really enjoyed the kitchen which was very well stocked with everything I needed. The property was nice, I had a bit of an ocean view on my deck. Pool looked lovely and there was... More

We stayed at the WorldMark for a week in Aug. 2015. Everything was good, rooms were clean and spacious. Staff were friendly and willing to help. Pool area was a bit small for all the guests and could get busy. This is a nice location close to downtown (a few minutes drive) and also close to southern Kona in case... More

I called in am and I wanted to request quiet room and extra blankets and towels. The receptionist said the rooms were preassigned and our room was stocked for 6 guests. No safe in house, but you can leave with manager (I don't feel like the inconvenience with getting my wedding ring, wallet, etc)! No free wi-fi. Thank God our... More

We stayed here for a week. The staff here are very friendly and extremely helpful. The resort is 15mins walk to downtown and restaurants. Since we were visiting during winters, the beaches close to the resort had no sand. So we drove to other beaches which were a bit far. North Kona has the best beaches. Hapuna was our favorite....

The Worldmark Kona is located across the street from the ocean with a small beach about a block away. The resort is walking distance to Kona Town and the harbor activities yet far enough away from the good beaches and other Big Island attractions that a vehicle should be considered. There is a trolley bus that does run arround the... More

nice walk to town about 15 minutes. Pool is pretty small. Don't take many people to get crowded. Desk clerks were always friendly. Great location with easy access. Not all the BBQ grills worked and that was irritating when u go with dinner to cook and not enough working grills.

The staff was very helpful and very accomadating. The first room we were given had a broken shelf in the fridge, so we were given another room. Normally the ground floor rooms would have a more direct access to the BBQs but in this case we had to walk around our room to get to the BBQ, still not bad,... More

As worldmark owners we have stayed many places. It was our first visit to a Hawaiian island that we were not greated with a live flower lei. So I was disappointed.
