My wife, baby, and in-laws just got back from Kona and it was a GREAT vacation. We didn't book through Sea Cliff (we rented one of the privately owned units from VRBO) and it was fantastic. 8 days for under $1000 seems a steal. The location, a couple minutes down from Kona Village on Ali'i drive is perfect. The condos are great, nice bedrooms, living area and a decent sized kitchen made the trip very easy. We also used the bar-b-que grills at the pool pretty much every night which was great (the pool is right above the surf).
The property as a whole is gorgeous with a rain forest atrium in the middle, and fantastic ocean views. Our room was back a bit, but the patio still had a decent ocean view (couldn't see the surf though). We really couldn't have asked for a nicer facility to stay at with a family.
We were out pretty much all day every day (it is a BIG island), but we really enjoyed the time we spent at the condo (mostly evenings at the pool). The staff puts on "cultural events" a couple nights a week, and when we were at the hotel we joined in and enjoyed them quite a bit. Everyone we interacted with at the condo, staff and guests, were very friendly.
There is also a nice mix of age groups at the hotel, which was perfect considering we spanned from 13 months to almost 70. We DEFINITELY will stay here again whenever we come back to Kona.
About Kona in general, make sure you rent a car in advance and be prepared to drive a ton to see everything. We put well over 1000 miles on the car we rented and saw many fantastic places.
