    Wow! What a treat!

    We had to wait a bit for our room, but WE were early. They still had us in an hour before the 4 pm check in time. Thank you! The room was a dream. Free wifi in the room via ATT service. Beautiful and quiet and we got a great price! Made our last night in Kona a great memory! Thank you!

    The stay was Ok

    Our stay at the Kona Coast Resort was ok. The large facility is surrounded by a golf course so that you can not access the coast line. There is no beach but it would be nice if there would be a pathway so that one could have a seat at the shore line. Rooms are nice and very clean. The fully equipped kitchen (including dish washer, washing machine and dryer) was very good. What was annoying to me - I booked this room since they claimed free Wifi - was that the AT&T Wifi is working very poorly. It took very long most the time to connect to the internet, several times it didn't work at all. Asking the staff for help resulted in providing me the AT&T service number... At the end I would say that the stay was ok but the value was not optimal. The price was some what too high for what we got.

    Great place at a great deal!

    We stayed here with our two kids and had a fabulous time. All of the condos have either a water view or golf course view. We had a ground floor unit which was perfect for us because the kids could run around in the grass and play ball and tag. They have gas grills, plus an herb garden for guest use. There's a nice view of the ocean from the pool and hot tub, and a pool side bar and restaraunt for drinks and food. Quiet, relaxing and clean. I highly recommend it!

    Load up at the Costco for your groceries on the first day. Also, gas at Costco is 40 cents per gallon cheaper than other stations. It's only 1 mile from the airport, so fill up your rental car there before returning it!

    Very spacious, super helpful staff. Nice and private but great location for heading out to sites! Every Monday is a welcoming party out on lawn with golf course in front of ocean view! Loved everything about this place!

    staycation

    Only stayed one night but it was a great deal for the room. Hard to beat the price that we got when you compare it to other hotels. However this place had a lot of older people, so be prepared to deal with some complaining. The room itself was a little outdated, the appliances need to be updated and the wall paper was from the 90's.

    Location and Cleanliness

    Wonderful location. Quiet and easy access to local snorkeling beach. Friendly accommodating staff. Minimal ocean views available by condos , however wonderful paved path along golf Kurds over looking the majestic ocean available to stroll day and night safely and easily . Love the Adult quiet pool- called Serenity Pool. Condo living was great here! Close to farmers market and local Grocery store for all needs- make meals in your own condo - special. Parking plentiful.

    Great Resort

    Liked quite a lot of things about this place. 1. We got a ocean view room. 2. very comfortable clean bed 3. full kitchen with all facilities 4. clean swimming pool, they supply beach towels as many times as you want. Can rent quite a lot of other gear as well 5. Keaheau market is nearby, walking distance. Supermarket has all the stuff should you decide to cook. Ok, for some negatives. 1. location is good, our Garmin gave us a hard time

    The condo was typical. We didn't have an ocean view, but they were willing to re-locate us if we wanted. Very full occupancy. Staff was helpful when we contacted them. The location was great, very central to all our activities. Our air condtioning came with the deal, but otherwise you have to pay daily for the use of the air. One thing, the housekeepers did not give us any new soap, so by the end of 10 days, it was pretty sparse.
