    Kona is great!

    Our first trip to this resort was Sept 2013. We loved it so I booked for this year. We were put in an older unit, which is fine if it is kept neat and clean. The condo was dirty and in need of repair - not attention, but repair! The carpet had stains that weren't faded like someone tried to clean it. The floor was so nasty that my feet turned black after I showered. Their mid-week clean entailed them changing the towels. The bed needs replaced, badly! I went for laundry detergent and the desk lady asked how my stay was as she was processing $1.50 for the soap! I told her and she said if I had complained they would have moved me. I shouldn't have to complain! They know the unit is very. dilapidated. The couch has busted seams on the cushions. The little TV in the living room has scratches all over it like a child with a pen wrote on it. Broken tiles on the kitchen floor. They know it needs repairs or gutted and rebuilt.

    OK place to stay

    We chose this place as we needed a kitchen (easier with a baby!). The carpets had spots, the bed sagged on one of the sides and we saw 2 dead roaches! What we liked was that the condo was spacious with two full baths and a full kitchen. The staff were pretty friendly and they responded quickly to our requests. The property was also located close to beaches and snorkeling spots and was also close to the downtown.

    The good, the bad and the really ugly

    This was an average place and the pools were small. It was disappointing that there was no access to the beach right on the property. The timeshare department was overbearing and untruthful. We agreed to stay for a 90 minute presentation which lead to one way longer... when we said we wanted to consider their proposal they were extremely agressive. Do not attend the timeshare presentation. The discounts are NOT worth it. Try to decided what day trips you want ahead of time and book online.. that will be cheaper and less aggravating.

    Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

    Again, book online prior to the trip if you can decide on what you want to do. You will save time on your trip and money many times if you book online. The Lava tour and snorkling with the dolphins were excellent tours offered.

    You get what you pay for

    Convienient location for our needs. Shopping center across the street. Not in the downtown mess of Kialua. Not the nicest place we have stayed, but not the worst either. These are bare bones 1970's time share units, so don't expect a lot of amenities. No beach swimming access, pools are a hike from the room, staff is friendly and helpful.

    Great place to put your stuff

    Very convenient, located pretty close to the Kona airport. Villa was as promised, spacious and the washer/dryer and kitchen were really useful. Only the wifi was really spotty but not really a big deal while you're busy having a spiritual experience in Hawaii!

    Convenient location, friendly and helpful staff, clean room with reasonable amenities. A good place to keep your things while exploring this amazing island, and relaxing after a long day outside.
