I stay here every time I visit Kailua-Kona. Very comfortable. Friendly staff. Beautiful southwest view. Have not been in the pool too much, the ocean is right there, but the pool side bar and grill is a favorite.

Despite the best efforts of its unbelievably friendly and competent staff (I saw one staff member working hard in three different roles over the course of 24 hours), this property fails to live up to the Marriott name. I wonder when the last time was that a Marriott executive set foot on this property, which looks like it hasn't had... More

We stayed here the first night on the island. Friendly service, beautiful property, and very close to the airport. The breakfast buffet was awesome! The macadamia nut butter & cocnut syrup were fantastic, and we got an oceanfront table with a breathtaking view. What a great way to start our vacation.

Enjoyed the breakfast buffet with relatives. Made to order omelets had many variations to choose from. All buffet items were fresh, hot and delicious. The view of the harbor was beautiful. The restaurant was clean and staff was courteous. Clean restrooms are in the hotel. Very nice breakfast.

It has been rated average but it is below that but compensated by its location. The property is quite tired both internally and externally but overall provided a satisfactory place to see the Big Island and Kona. It is time for a spruce up.

We had a great stay here. Rooms are quite spacious even for a family of 4 with teenaged children. Good sized bathroom and balcony as well.

My stay at the King Kamehameha was a very pleasant experience.

This is a renovated hotel and it is definitely a home run. Great location, grounds, and staff. This one is definitely a keeper. The King Kam is located near the burial grounds of King Kamehameha and is the site of the original Ironman Triathlon. It is within walking distance of numerous shops and restaurants in Kona.
