Although the Royal Kona has an amazing location nestled on the shore in Kailua-Kona right next to Coconut Grove on Ali'i Drive, I would not stay here again due to the dated rooms, lack of room service (as in none), and disappointing breakfast. I stayed here on my honeymoon and although we had a view of the amazing ocean right at our door, our room was in no way romantic. Everything was just old. Not vintage, a look a lot of hotels are going for and I personally enjoy, just old. There is a pool and a private lagoon but no hot tub which was disappointing. We also had to drive a long distance for most activities. I knew we did not want to stay in Hilo due to the constant rain but if I could go back, I would stay in Kohala (the northern side of the island). The landscape change is drastic where in Kailua-Kona everything is covered in lava rock and Kohala is a lush rainforest (what you picture when you think of Hawaii). I had an amazing trip and I plan to return. But I will not stay at the Royal Kona again.
