    Excellent resort but weather iffy

    Rooms are great, location is good but the weather is cloudy every afternoon. If you want a quite and restfull place this is it. We used the pool during the mormning and went out to other areas in the afternoon. It was great for our needs.

    Clean and Friendly

    Friendly staff, very close to the best snorkeling beach. Although it is a time share condo they politely informed us of the discounts for activities if we did do the tour then dropped it, not pushy at all. We couldn't check in early, but they do offer a service of letting you check your bags and have use of fitness room showers after you check out for later flights.

    Relax and enjoy!

    This was our second stay at the Kona Coast and it was great. It is located just outside of the town of Kona so you do have to drive to shopping and dining, but it is close to many great snorkeling spots and beaches. We had a one bedroom condo and it was very clean and spacious. The only negative was they were refinishing/sanding the lanai furniture in other units and it was noisy during the day. It is an older complex but it is maintained very well and has beautiful grounds.

    You must snorkel at Kahalu'u Beach Park. There are loads of various fish and we always see turtles there.
