We love Kona!

We take in the sites of Kona each time we visit the Big Island. This is the only hotel we stay in.

The offer of service was there as we checked in early, but knew the room was not ready (we had other things to do), they offered to take our bags and keep until we came back which pleasanted surprised me.

Needs rehab & Mai Tai bar a rip off

Would not recommend Thu, Dec 10, 2009
Great location for walking to downtown, bike riding, free diving and swimming. Staff didn't do a thing about the dirty carpet. Advised them of the condition first morning there. Hotel bar is a rip off. Expensive drinks little alcohol content. Outrigger Resort much better location and experience.

I upgraded to an ocean view, but really had a view of the building across the parking lot.

The best in Kona

Would recommend Sat, Nov 28, 2009
My husband and I enjoyed staying at the Royal Kona Resort. It is a short walk from Kona's quaint shops. The hotel itself was quiet and well maintained.

Money saver

We ended up buying a few breakfast supplies and keeping them in the room. Things like creamer, instant oatmeal, and fruit came in handy. We didn't need to eat out for every meal and this saved us money.

Great location!!!

Would recommend Thu, Nov 26, 2009
Stayed at Royal Kona for 2 nights paid approx $100 a night (Nov 19-20). Room was small compared to other places I've stayed but it had a balcony and ocean view. Room consisted of a king size bed, safe, and refrigerator. Unfortunately there is no free breakfast, however there is a breakfast buffet, and menu dining offered. Buffet cost about $13 per person, make sure you get the 20% coupon at the front desk. Excellent location, walking distance from shopping and dining. About a 2hour drive to the Volcano Park. Very close to beaches. If you want to swim with sea turtles go to Kahalu'u Beach those little guys are everywhere!!

ocean view

Would recommend Tue, Nov 17, 2009
It was a good location for discovering all the island had to offer. We used it as a base for scuba diving the second week. If breakfast could have been open by 6 instead of 6:30 it would have been easier to eat, rest and get to dive boat by 7:30 but we managed ok. Many times we go to various islands for scuba diving and get all inclusive including the diving on sight but this was a slightly different vacation because we wanted to travel and see the sights before diving.

Dining

Food is expensive in hawaii so if you buy snacks and tuna lunches, eat hearty breakfast and then have a nice dinner. Saves a little money. Having a car was a necessity.

The resort was very nice and staff friendly and rooms clean. We had an ocean view room but I don't believe it was an updated one (needed new tub, very old). I would stay again if they have kitchenetts.

Turning 50 "Island Style"

Would recommend Mon, Nov 2, 2009
Having stayed at the more costly "high end" resorts for hundreds more dollars per night, the Royal Kona is without a doubt, the best value, the most traditional, the best location with respect to the ocean and town, the best ambiance and the most realistic Hawaiian "experience" than any other establishment on the Kona coast. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to insure we had a very enjoyable and memorable time at their facility. We will definitely stay there again!

Attractions

Get to know the "family" at Bongo Bens.....great reasonable dining for fresh fish caught and prepared same day...both the fish taco(in a wrap)and the grilled tuna melt are "euphoric"...don't miss the trip on their boat Sea Wolf to see the Manta Rays at night with brothers Bart and Brady...very cool people and very cool experience!
