We have been to the Hono Koa on several occasions, most recently 2011 Christmas week through 2012 New Year's week. We had some luggage trouble (never ship your items USPS!) and the Hono Koa office staff was AWESOME in helping us handle that. It's amazing to find a team as great as the Hono Koa employees at a small resort/condo like this. We decided we liked the Hono Koa so much, we bought two weeks. We will be back this year, having rented two additional weeks to add to the two that we now own. We will be at this Pacific Oceanfront paradise from early-December through early January!
Here’s the top 10 reasons we return to the Hono Koa yearly :
10. Excellent staff (yes, the staff made our top 10 reasons we like the Hono Koa)
9. Oceanfront suites that are always amazingly clean and fully equipped
8. Great (small) pool area, seldom used. It’s like having your own semi-private pool. When there are other guests there, they have all been super friendly.
7. KOA Suites (401, 301, 201, 101)
6. Ocean observation deck
5. Mornings with POG and RUM on the lanai
4. Location (we love the area the Hono Koa is in)
3. Whale watching from the Lanai
2. Sunsets over the Pacific
1. 7PM, MonChong marinated in Huli Huli sauce on the grills, as the sun is setting, the tropical breezes blowing in off the ocean, the evening lights at the Hono Koa are on, Christmas lights twinkeling on the decks, and we know we are at our home away from home.
As a side note, we were at the Hono Koa at the exact same time as the other reviewers from Christmas 2011. I met the lady and am not surprised at her review. It’s interesting how attitude and perspective make all the difference in the world.
