    Great Value for the Price

    Centrally located, comfortable and well appointed. Like staying in a fully outfitted apartment. Last redecoration was probably a few years ago but the facilities and furnishings are very well kept up. I'd say everything was tiptop, kitchen was fully equipped down to mixing bowls and baking sheets. Couldn't be happier. Only the TV was older (not flat screen). But in Hawaii who cares about TV!

    Second blissful stay! Great for families

    2nd stay -- everything was great, clean, spacious, well-equipped condo with everything we needed. Best thing about the resort was the amazing gracious service. When we said the DVD player wasn't working well they immediately replaced it with a brand new one. Great for a family with small children. One quibble -- the hot tub could be hotter! Would definitely return again, and try for a unit closer to pool with ocean view -- easier in the off-season.

    Krazy on Kona

    We spent 10 full days on the Big Island.The Kona Coast Resort was wonderful. We were in the newer section. Some "veterans" we talked to said they were nicer than the older section. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We liked the location...surrounded by a golf course with sight lines to the ocean. Ours was an active vacation. These are the things that we did (after much research)Swam and snorkeled with 15 dolphins at "two step" (place of refuge). They swam right up to us and by us. We did the Manta dive, the most incredible dive we'd ever done (we even saw a pod of whales on the way). We went with Honu Diving, which had personal attention and a small boat (not like the bigger groups). We did the 2 tank Reef Dive and then Manta Dive. [...]took us to the perfect site to witness the unbelievable, huge, beautiful creatures We hiked to the green sand beach, a 4 mile hike to an incredibly shaped green "mini valley". On the way to the green beach we went by South Point, the southern most point in the USA. We visited the black sand beach, where turtles are everywhere and there are lots of great tidal pool adventures.We hiked to the waterfalls on the east side (rainbow falls and akaka falls), and visited the amazing Banyon trees in Hilo. We hiked down to the black sand beach at Waipo Valley, running into wild horses on the way. It is very steep for a mile down and back up. We hiked up to the telescopes from the visitor's center at Mauna Kea (from 9200 feet to 13,800 feet, taking 4 hours up...very cold at the top, but worth it for the views...we were offered, and accepted, a ride down when it looked like an inversion-rain- coming)We hiked in volcano national park (the IKI trail, a four mile trail that goes across a huge caldera)We saw the Lava flow at night from Kalapani (from a distance), and the Thurston Lava tube (bring flashlights)We snorkeled at Captain Cook -Kealakekua Bay-(hiking the 3 miles down from a trail on the right about 100 feet after the turnoff from highway 11 - it is marked (painted) on the road.We spent an hour at sunset at Hapuna beach, north of kona (extremely beautiful beach with surfing, snorkling, etc.We also snorkeled at Kahaluu Beach Park. It was a little crowded for our tastes, but had a wide variety of fish, with surfing close by.We ate at a great Thai family restaurant in Hilo, by the banyon trees, named "Sombats"The only thing on our list we did not do was the botanical gardens by Hilo.
