“Wonderful 30th Anniversary. Very accomodating and lots of ALOHA!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

It was our 30th wedding anniversary and my wife wanted to make it somewhat special as we only had a window of 2 days. Our anniversary was on Nov. 22 which happened to be on Thanksgiving. I made the reservation with Holua and called the local florist to deliver a dozen red roses with a box of chocolates to the front desk. I called Holua and asked if they could set up the roses for my wife as we were traveling from Hilo after her radiation treatment for her breast cancer. I wanted to surprise her. Holua did more than just setting up the roses and the box of chocolates. They added a bottle of Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider which my wife and I enjoy at New Years. We don't drink alcohol. I was surprised to see the bottle with 2 beautiful champagne glasses with the Holua Resort emblem etched in the glass. The bellman brought our suitcases in the 1 bedroom suite and showed us all the amenities. As we walked around the grounds, staff would pass us and always with a smile, greet us with a hello, good morning or some sort of ALOHA. I would suggest staying at this resort over anywhere else on the Kona side of the island.

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful. You simply can't beat the price of a 1 bedroom with kitchen, living...

Staff and property were incredible. Low key and loved the aloha feeling from the moment we arrived! Great selection of movies and board games. Out microwave pooped out and it was repaired in less than 30 minutes. Every single person made you feel like you were the only one they were there for. I think everyone should have their own golf cart upon check in, but the walking helped work off all the mac nuts I consumed. Eddie was the greatest bellman EVER!

Location is close to everything you want but not in the thick of traffic. Condos are very spacious. Staff are FANTASTIC. Plenty of amenities and love all the pools throughout the resort. This was my third visit and was not disappointed.

We stayed for 3 nights. I reserved a 1 bedroom condo, but they put us up in a 2 bedroom. It was huge. 2 large bedrooms (each with their own bathroom) downstairs. A large living room and 1/2 bath and kitchen upstairs. Everything we needed to cook meals. Very clean place and the beds were very comfy. They provided coffee every day along with sugar/creamer. The condos come with washer/dryer and they provide detergent. After flying from the east coast of the U.S. with 2 kids, having a condo was great the first few days. With the time change, getting up at 5am and having a living room to hang out in was a huge plus. Internet access was fine. The front desk was helpful with every request. They never pressured us into sitting through a timeshare sell. The concierge set us up on a luau and a snorkeling boat trip. The day we checked out they let us use the workout room showers after our snorkeling trip (came back at 2pm) and provided us with towels and soap/shampoo. The snorkeling trip was 1/4 mile walk to the end of the road, which was very convenient. The pools and hot tub were very clean. There are at least 6 pools in the complex, so they were never crowded. It's close (driving) to a grocery/drug store, but about a 6 mile drive to Kona. This wasn't a problem at all and we always found a parking spot in Kona.

Room Tip: I'm not sure there is a bad room in the place. Every room has a lanai, so it's a nice way t...

My wife booked this hotel in Kona without any expectation, we were a little bit disappointing by the condo we got in Lahaina Maui. We flew the last flight from Maui to Kona, it was late and dark, the drive to the resort we were wary, we got into our room around 11PM, it is not a room it is a huge condo 2 levels, the condo is beautiful, there are 2 bedrooms with each own bathroom, a huge living room upstair, open space kitchen, I felt like home!

It is a very beautiful resort, and for sure the condo can accommodate easily family with kids.

In all the hotels we stayed while visiting Hawaii, this one is the BEST!

The gentlemen at the front desk was kind enough to let us checkout at 12 instead of 10am as we arrived quite late, Mahalo!

Sadly we moved to another hotel the next day on the Hilo side to visit the Volcano, knowing now how the hotels in Hilo were, we would stay in Kona at drive to the Volcano instead.

Overall, I love this resort and for sure will return on our next trip to Big Island!!

From the moment we walked in to this place we were thrilled. We had booked a 1 bedroom condo but they gave us one with 2. This let my wife put her stuff in the other room. We loved and used the lanai as well as both swimming pools outside our place as well as a hot tub. The condo was fully stocked to start us off including a packet of coffee and full set of plates, glasses flatware and and ice in the fridge. Also covered parking was included which is great considering how hot the sun can get.
When I first saw online the pictures of the place I thought that the colors were a little loud but it fits right with Hawaii. My one regret was that we were only there for 3 nights. The staff, all of them, was friendly and helpful with suggestions for places to go and also to eat. I cannot say enough about this place and the price was amazing. It was under $110 a night. What’s not to love??????

The units are very nicely done with large spacious living room very nice and complete kitchen and large bedroom with bath attached. There is a lanai off of the living room and bedroom, very large with a pleasant view and plenty of sunshine. It has all of the standard amenities you could possibly want and recently renovated to ensure that the property is in top shape. The Resort is located just off of Ali'i drive and close to all of the local attractions and Kailua town. There are multiple pools and good parking for the rental car. This is our 3d stay here and we feel very comfortable - it has a nice warm feel about the resort and the staff here are always pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice, we prefer a second floor unit for the lanai and the peacefulness.
