My husband and I rented a unit here for our two weeks on the Big Island.
Our unit was 'average' maintained, but we did have the very basics of what we needed. The balcony over looked the pool - so little privacy unfortunately.
WIFI does NOT work in rooms - it must be used in lobby.
Staff is exceptionally rude.
Kona is a very sleepy 'seaside' type town, with souvenir shops, over priced restaurants and not much to do. Retired is the word I'd use to describe the Kona crowd.
We rented a car to see the 'sites' but found them all touristy and disappointing. We returned the car after two days and were charged twice what we were quoted by Alamo.
***Important - if you rent a car, keep the Orange Paper Parking pass. We were charged - after we left and were not advised 50.00 for not returning it. We didn't have park in the lot as there was no parking spots available.
We then went to Honolulu where we rented a Condo for two weeks - much better location! I'd skip the boring..or " Big Island", and go straight to Oahu - better beaches, better restaurant, grocery options, better shopping (if you like that) and much more enjoyable crowd. We were even able to find an affordable GYM membership at the YMCA. (Big Island 18.00 per person per workout )
