We had a wonderful 11-day stay at Kona Makai. Our unit was a one-
bedroom with loft in building #6. It was clean and well-appointed. I saw only two small ants the entire time we were there, so bugs were not a problem, though I was careful not to leave any food out, either. The grounds were gorgeous and parking was convenient. The pool and hot tub were nice and clean, and the views of the ocean were fabulous. One complaint some have had is that the management is heavy-handed regarding the pool and other rules. We didn't see this at all. There were young kids who used the pool and they appeared to be having a great time. Their parents did occaisionally ask them to refrain from screaming, so they were well-behaved but it didn't seem to hamper their fun. And it made it so much nicer for the rest of us! I never saw anyone complain to other guests. We did get asked to leave the hot tub one evening at closing time, but it was done very pleasantly. It is a quiet place, but we really liked that. If I am lucky enough to get back to the Big Island again, I would love to stay here again, and would recommend this place with confidence to any of my friends.
