“Great for families and older folks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

This resort is beautiful. And if you were a Fairfield owner, this property will feel like home. The pool and grill areas are fantastic. The staff is friendly. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed. All the comforts of home. The location is not the best on the island. No easy beach access and if you're a foodie, the best restaurants are a bit of a drive. The best beaches are, too. Younger couples looking to eat out more, go elsewhere. If you don't want to hear the sales pitch, unplug your phone immediately. They will attempt to talk you into the sales talk every. single. day.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

what a lovely resort. i am an owner but have not been back to this resort in about 10 years. it has grown considerably, but still offers privacy. all of the staff seem to be invested in providing the best service for their guests... helpful, happy, knowledgable and friendly. beautiful grounds and well tended... bright, airy and clean condos... this resort is well run and well maintained and should be proud of the care they extend in every manner. congratulations to management and staff for a job, not always easy, but very well done by all!

we booked our reservation in Kona for a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately for us when we showed up although very cute and charming the lack of Air Conditioning was intolerable. The people were nice about our leaving and we lucked into the Wyndham on Alii Dr. It was spotless, it was large and it had Air conditioning! The grounds were beautiful and we spent every evening in the pool or jacuzzi get cleaned up and rested from our days in the ocean! We loved it! The full kitchen was great and we used the washer/dryer in the 2 bed/2 bath suite 3 times! the staff was nice and friendly at checkout and we had a great trip!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are 2 bed 2 bath timeshares. They all appeared to have nice lanai's and w...

We are staying here right now, and have been back for a number of years. Always enjoy the spacious condo, the large lanai, and the nicely kept grounds. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Will be back again next fall.

The resort is beautiful, the grounds and condo are spotless. Albert and Brandy at the front desk were wonderful, friendly, treated me like an old friend and were very helpful with anything that I needed. They went above and beyond. The condo was extremely comfortable. We were there the week of IronMan and it was perfect accomodations. We could walk into town or take the back road in. The nights we cooked in we had everything we needed. The beds are unbelievably comfortable !! Every time I walked into the bedroom I just wanted to lie down in the bed! The washer, dryer and soaking tub came in handy also. Very quiet, they didn't bother us at all regarding the timeshare. They asked once and we declined. They delivered more than enough extra towels throughout our stay, although we also had a closet full of them. We had a problem with the ice maker and they sent someone up immediately and also delivered a bag of ice in the meantime. We couldn't imagine better service, nicer people, or more comfortable accomodations. We hated to leave !

Room Tip: We had room 66A as others had suggested. Very nice and a partial view of the ocean, although your l...

We stayed during Ironman Championship week (Oct 11-18) so it was very busy. The unit was nice and clean, but my mistake was in not asking for an upstairs unit at check-in and we were put in a downstairs unit, which meant we could hear the upstairs folks pacing around all night. We also found out quickly that they were smokers because we could smell it every time they lit up. We may have shared an HVAC system. When we asked to move to another unit the 1st day, we were told that they were overbooked and could not accommodate us. When we complained about the smoking above, we were told that smoking was actually allowed. The front desk offered to call the people above, but I told them if they were allowed to smoke, there was no point. Besides this slight inconvenience, the unit was very clean and certainly well maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed, even though we ate all lunches and dinners out. The proximity to Kailua-Kona couldn't be better. Yes, the unit is slightly dated, but so is everything else on the Big Island, so it is part of the charm. The grounds were beautifully maintained.

Pros:
*Walking distance to Kailua-Kona and many great bars and restaurants
*Unit has everything you need, including a washer/dryer. You even get coffee and detergent.
*Free WiFi (although a bit slow)
*Beautifully maintained grounds
*Two pools and a small exercise center
*Lots of free self parking
*Each unit has a Lanai/deck
*Beds were comfy, even though we were jet-lagged

Cons:
*Not a non-smoking resort
*No bar or on-site restaurant
*Downstairs units can be a bit noisy with folks above and AC right outside
*The open bathroom to the master bedroom is kind of strange (waking up spouse at night)
*Housekeeping only once during the week
*They want you to see the concierge for your "parking pass", but it's just to rope you into timeshare session. Skip it. You don't need a parking pass.

Tips:
*Ask for an upstairs unit ahead of time or at check-in
*The closest restaurant is one of the best, Jackie Reys, and you can walk there from the back of the resort up the concrete path to the Presentation Center. Its across the road.
*Bring a flashlight. It is dark walking around at night.
*Walk over to Don The Beachcomber for Happy Hour and sunset
*Good snorkeling spot down the road at Kahaluu Beach Park

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs unit.

Very nice resort.
Staff and rooms are spot on we stayed during the busy time of the Ironman WC and nothing seemed to be a bother for the staff. Rooms are clean and have a well stocked kitchen so if you wished to cook at home you can. It's a nice walk into town.
