Many people have already given comments about the outdated state of the resort. They are correct, however it was very clean and the room was a very generous size. The aircon worked well and was quiet and the beds were quite comfortable with good quality linens.
The bar for service and food was excellent. Fabulous location on the waterfront watching the sun set. Great mai Tai's.
On the negative side, the front desk people were not very friendly or particularly helpful. There is no room service or free wifi.
The hot water for the shower took ages to come on and the shower was pretty feeble.
The best advice I could give to anyone contemplating staying here is forget the breakfast buffet. The selection was poor. The hot food was cold. The service was almost non existent. Save your money and walk downtown to splashers for breakfast. It's cheaper and far far nicer.
Thanks to Waynette at the Expedia desk. She was terrific.
The pool and lagoon were good. Small and could get crowded but good facilities.
The Royal Kona is in a fantastic location, so close to town and easy to walk to restaurants etc.
we gave it 3 stars, but could give it an extra half. For the price it was good value.
