    Excellent Place to Stay

    The condo was excellent. Better than what we saw in the pictures. We walked in the door and said "wow" right off the bat. Clean and organized. They had the place set up like it was home. I would go back again in a heart beat.

    Nice and relaxing + good location

    The Kona Coast Resort is a great hotel for couples and families. The condos are roomy and have a fully equipped kitchen. Which safes you a lot of money since you can cook your own meals (even though the prices for groceries are pretty high!). The staff was very friendly and always helpful. It is conveniently located on Alii Dr. so it's not too far from the small shops and fairs. The only thing missing was the access to the beach. You can get to the cliffs if you walk across the golf course, but there is no beach area connected to the hotel. For nice sand beaches you have to consider a 15-25 min drive up north. A rental car is necessary here, so that you can get around. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation.

    Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

    Instead of buying groceries at the KTA supermarket which is across from the hotel, I would suggest to drive to the Walmart (Henry St.) which is also not too far away. You can get essentials for about half the price. For fresh fruit and veggies check out the farmers markets.

    Safeway is up the road a bit and has much better prices (and fresh produce) then the groceries around the resort.

    Kona Coast Resort

    Great location. We had been there before and the staff was nice enough to upgrade us to a 2 bedroom unit. Only problem with the upgraded unit is it has 2 large stall showers but no bath. Made it a little difficult with a small child

    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.

    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.

    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.
