    Highly recommended! Family friendly!

    Our stay was very comfortable and we loved it. The room was comfortable and roomy, there was no charge for the air conditioner. I have a toddler, so I really loved that they have a playground and children's pool at the resort. We will definitely be going back again.

    Shop at Costco to buy enough for the entire stay, then you can save money on food and cook in the room.

    Good price, ordinary experience

    This is a really decent hotel for the price! Just keep in mind it is decent--the room itself and the staff were average. The food at the restaurant wasn't anything to be desired, and the bartenders were not friendly. There were cockroaches on the premise, and we found a dead one on the kitchen floor of our room. Otherwise, the workout facilities, tennis courts, and pool/spas were great! Please note there is only a partial beach view from only a small part of this resort, and there is no beach access.

    Bring water shoes to this island! Or buy them at target/walmart/costco. They are essential to explore most of the shores due to critters and lava rock! ;)

    Beautiful location

    We had a great time once again at this location. The setting is beautiful and you can't beat the snorkeling at the bay just a few blocks away. The only thing we felt found have been better is that some of the appliances are older and need to be replaced. Over all, we love staying here and will return again.

    Great place to stay

    We enjoyed our stay at the Kona Coast Resort, the condo was perfect...2 baths, dishwasher, washer & dryer, good view. The only drawback was that the insulation between the floors was inadequate (perhaps you can say this about all hotels/condos/apartments) and you could hear every flush and footstep.

    Fantastic resort!

    Sure, it's not the Hilton, but you also don't pay for all the extras of a Hilton. This Resort has all you need to rest between snorkel dives at the best snorkel site on the big island which is just down the road! Air conditioning was great and for the price, you can't beat it! We only ate out once during our 9 day visit, the supplied kitchen served all our needs, that and the grocery store that was within walking distance. By the way, the beer we left in the fridge is our gift to the cleaning crew which were fantastic! bill
