“good location in Kona”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Good location in Kona. The hotel has a modern and updated feel. The beach out front is small, but still a beach, and great for kids. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Restaurant and the bar were both great. Nice to have the ABC store connected to the hotel for snacks etc.
Would stay again if I wanted to stay right in Kona again.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the start of April. It was a beautiful hotel. Check in was very smooth and fast. We had an ocean view room, it was love to be able to sit out on the lanai and enjoy the scenery. The hotel is with in walking distance of a lovely little shopping area. also very convenient to some lovely restaurants, just walk out through the ABC store and there are 2 casual dining restaurants straight across the road. We had breakfast there 2 mornings and there was a great selection of items to choose from. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try and getting full ocean frontal, best views.

Aloha,
Thank you for sharing your great review of our property on Trip Advisor. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed the ocean views from your room and that you had a great stay at the Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel. Being a short stroll away from beautiful Kailua village is great and the convenience of nearby shops and restaurants is an added bonus for our guests.
Many thanks again for your feedback, and we look forward to your return to the islands. Mahalo

Great location....but. We stayed at this hotel prior to checking into our condo, and now the night before we leave the island. As I said in my previous review, the location is perfect. The outside amenities are great. The mgmt commented on my previous review and said there was a 3 course dinner available, we can't seem to find it, nor did the staff know snything about it.

Don't waste your money on a room with a view!!!!!!!! This time our room overlooked the trash, with a peak at the water over the trees. Walk downstairs to see the water, you will be much happier.

This hotel was the perfect location to enjoy the beach, the pier and the local favors and color of Kona. The hotel itself was very nice and updated. We enjoyed the historical paintings and artifacts in the lobby. Our partial ocean view location gave us a great view of the beach and the pier. The restaurant was good. The shops in the hotel mall were great. Every staff member we met had a smile and a friendly aloha. The room was clean everyday. I used the business center every day. It was well appointed with three computers and a printer. We were very happy with our hotel choice on the big island and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Partial ocean view in West Tower on the 5th floor was a great value.

We had a reservation for Outrigger hotel which closed down and this hotel was subbed with breakfast for same price. Better deal than regular rates. Room okay but nothing special. Huge parking area but almost filled one night of nearby luau. Good breakfast with omelet station. Small beach but not really worth getting wet for snorkeling. A lot of restaurant choices nearby to walk to. Got a somewhat upgraded view room after waiting over an hour past check in time.

First time to The Big Island for my daughter & I. We planned to see the Volcanos and needed a somewhere convenient & centrally located. The room was reasonable for 2 people but a little small, although we spent most of our time out & about We booked a partial ocean view room but we had to look hard to find the ocean though, through some trees & vegetation. The pool area is great & we loved that the hotel was on the beach. We even hired canoes one day. The restaurant was in a lovely location, right near the beach area but a little pricey. We ordered breakfast and it was really good. The other restaurants nearby were also good but were less expensive. The Big Island is a friendly place & we are looking forward to a returning one day and when we do, we'll l probably stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here. This was our first visit to the big island and we weren't sure where to stay........waikoloa or kailua-kona.......in the end, we went with kailua-kona and the prince kamehameha hotel and i am so glad we did. The location was ideal! Close to so many great food choices! After driving to snorkeling areas in the morning, we were able to come back and shower before walking to a nearby lunch place, then resting for a bit in our room before driving to another beach in the afternoon. Again, we were able to come back to this central location and freshen up before dinner! So convenient! Clean rooms and friendly staff. Would stay here again! :)
