Just returned from a week stay here with our toddler
*Nice sized 1-bedroom condo.
*Great leeward weather in Kona
*Quiet - no sounds but for the Monday night luau music at adjacent hotel
*Supplies replenished at front desk include coffee, soap, shampoo, dish detergent, salt/pepper
*Not on the beach - nearest beach 5-10 minutes up Ali'i drive - Barking Sands
good beaches are 25+ minutes north (best are 50 minutes north)
*No baby pools for toddlers
*Our condo 20-133 had issues -microwave & oven hood would turn off intermittently, tub drain sometimes would not close for a bath.
*Mattress was TERRIBLE - very old with two body indentations. It was one of the worst mattresses I've used at quality accommodations (I used to travel extensively for business.)
*Took two different requests by different front desk staff to attempt to address mattress issue. I think they just made up the bed after the 2nd request - so I slept on the bad sleeper sofa mattress the rest of the trip.
*You can't drive right up to your condo - we walked 5-10 min to ours but it was nice exercise.
*Mid-to late-afternoon VOG (volcanic clouds) often blocked the sun & sunsets.
*Bad & slow internet in the evenings. Apparently couldn't handle capacity at peak times, as early morning (6-7am) worked fine.
*Few views of ocean will soon be gone as adjacent beachfront development in process.
