We stayed here for 5 days for our honeymoon over the Sheraton Keahou because we didn't want to pay the resort fee and wanted something a little more low key. We got the ocean front view and this boasts being one of the only beach-front properties in Kona, which is true. However, there was no option to really go in the water from the "beach," which is really just a long sandy patch with chairs.
We were impressed with the size of the room, which was really like a condo. It was a great value with two bedrooms, two baths, fully stocked kitchen, living room, lanai, and even a closet with a few things like boogie boards, beach chairs, and a cooler. They were a nice surprise!
The furniture is outdated, reminded me of old Florida, but the bathroom and kitchen were upgraded with good appliances, granite counter tops, etc.
Our only other complaint was that we had a phone charger missing from our room when we got back one night. We notified the hotel staff who was unable to locate it. Then we were called a few days later and told it was found. Not sure why it would have left our room or the plug where we left it. It was an odd circumstance, and we don't really know what happened, but I would let others know to beware of your belongings.
