We arrived later on at night, and therefore couldn't see much as once the Hawaiian sun drops, it gets dark very quickly. The one bedroom condo that we arrived at was nice and clean and was the perfect size, but as we were so tired, we went right to bed. The view that was waiting for us in the morning took our breath away! We were a stones throw away from the ocean and the black sand beach. The palm trees, the birds, the flowers, the ocean - made our mornings there perfect.
The condo was great, the staff were really helpful and pleasant and the view was spectacular. The only complaint that we have is that the pool was under construction, so we were unable to use it the whole week we were there. There are lots of things to do in the the area, but be prepared to drive regularly.
We were here for our honeymoon and hope to go back for our 10th anniversary!

This location is across a golf course from the ocean. The views are gorgeous, and I loved waking up to the sounds of the birds singing. It is also walking distance from the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. Also, being only half an hour outside the Volcano Park was nice. (We went to the park several times during our trip.) However, the management team could use a few pointers. A couple days after we got there, they decided to renovate the pool area. The pool was drained, and jackhammers were running all day, every day, for the rest of our stay. When we complained, we were told that someone was "supposed" to notify us before we came. The resort has a homeowners' association for those who live there, VI, and Sunterra all together. It seemed that there is a lot of finger pointing between the three. When everything is running smoothly, this is probably a nice place to stay. Otherwise, it's more work than it's worth.

If you want to stay near the Volcanoe Park, this is probably your best bet. Otherwise, I'd stay elsewhere on the island.
