“Kanaloa at Kona unit 1803”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Kanaloa is a great resort. But do not stay in unit 1803. The owner does not offer air conditioning. The unit has A/C but the owner won't let you use it. When you make a reservation, specify that you do not want this unit.

Room Tip: ASk for air conditioning and do not take unit 1803

Could see the tropical fish in the surf from our lanai.
Moved two twins together to make second double bed which was very nice. The kitchen was great, very workable. Could have used a coffee grinder and some sharp knives. The gardens on the grounds were beautiful.
It was really hot in the room when we arrived but once we opened everything up, it all cooled off to be perfect. Didn't need air conditioning.

Room Tip: Our room, at the edge of the sea, was at the north end of the property. Awesome.

This hotel wasn't close to downtown but the location was great. I felt safe, rooms were odor free, chill axing outside in a hamick with a book, the waves and a my tie, there were no words but perfect get away. I could see why some never leave their resort, the only set back is the size of the beds, they were a bit smaller than I expected.

Room Tip: Ocean view/ mountain or volcano view, it's all beautiful.

Absolute Peace!

We loved this condo! We've rented many condos/homes on the island and this one is by far the best view ever! There were five of us and this condo could easily sleep 8 if needed. It's in a quiet location, yet only minutes from shopping and downtown Kona. We loved it! We had breakfast on the Lania every morning watching whales and dolphins, couldn't have been more pleasant.
The resort was quiet, convenient to activities and shopping, pools were great. I only wished the restaurant was still open, at least the beachfront bar area.
We will return!

Room Tip: The ad for this says ground floor. You enter at the ground floor and walk up a flight of stairs to t...

This condo has an amazing view. Overlooks the pool and the ocean. The condo is furnished lovely with tile floors and everything you would need. Lawnchairs, cooler, lots of dishes and cooking utensils. 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms. We felt this condo was very nice. We did have trouble with the patio doors and the screens. The patio doors dont lock so you have to put a piece of pvc underground sprinkler pipe in the track on both sides. The screens I felt the rollers need to be replaced because they did not move well in the track. I broke many nails fighting with the patio doors and screens. Frustrating. Also the blinds covering the patio doors need to be replaced. Several blind panels are missing and they dont open all the way.
Other than that we really enjoyed our stay in 2601. If these little things dont bother you then you will love this condo. It is very clean and has a fantastic view. Just bring your clothes and enjoy.

We stayed in unit 2105 this January, and we loved it. The location is great, as long as you don't want to be within walking distance to shops, restaurant and so on. We much prefer a place that is more relaxing and less busy, which Kanaloa definitely delivered. The lanai was large and had a great view of the ocean, we could see whales every morning from there. The furniture was comfortable and there was even a little wet bar.

The condo itself is huge! We were a group of 5 adults staying in the condo, so we had to use the sleeper sofa as well. Not the most comfortable (but no sleeper sofa is), however, the sound of waves crashing against the shore all night made up for any discomfort there. Don't go expecting the condos to be brand new state of the art condos, because they are not. They are however, very spacious, comfortable, well equipped vacation condos. The grounds were beautiful, and as far as the pools go we only ever used the pool by the ocean and never felt the need to go to the others after that one closed at sunset, but they looked nice.

Just returned from staying 8 nights at Kanaloa At Kona #1902. The view was excellent directly on the ocean. The Lanai was large and the patio furniture was new and comfortable. We watched whales and dolphins from the lanai daily. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff are very helpful and if we called for anything they were right there to assist or bring more towels, ect. The kitchen was OK but the pots and pans need to be replaced. The furniture either needs to be replaced or at steam cleaned. Over all this is a great place for the view, location and the beautiful grounds.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the ocean view.
