Convenient but hidden $

Would recommend Wed, Mar 4, 2015
Easy and great lobby displays. The swimming bay was a little grubby but nice to have so close. Good view of the luau. Quite the show. Still trying to figure out some charges we didn't incur.

Stay in Kona

Would recommend Tue, Jan 27, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The hotel setting was beautiful and the location was great. There were lots of restaurants and things to do within walking distance. Our room was clean but the view was not great and it could of had more outlets. Overall, I would stay at the hotel again.
