fantastic location, lacking in comfort and interior updates
The location was fantastic! The room however is in dire need of updates -new bed/mattress and bedding as well as carpet and paint is desperately needed! we paid for the king oceanfront with wrap around lanai and while the view was great - the room
itself was not worth the $300/night price tag! the Royal Lahaina in Maui was a thousand times better and less money. A few updates to this motel is much needed and would go a LONG ways! This was a once in a lifetime trip for us and while the view was great, the room was very disappointing for the cost! don't get your hopes up by the photos -they are deceiving!
Great location and views. Lagoon is pleasant, able to see fish, dolphins and whales.
Would have preferred queen or king bed rather than 2 doubles.
Liked the open air restaurant/bar great for viewing. Walking to town for shops and restaurants was
I loved our ocean front room. The hotel is close to Kona attractions. Highly recommend, will stay here again if I return to the big island. Don's Mai Thai is great. They have awesome drinks and food.
There is $10 parking per day and Internet
Also the rooms need some updating but they may already be doing that. I saw some construction going on in other rooms.
I stayed at Royal Kona from the 10th
of Feb thru the 17th of February. I called
and complained about the extreme noise
several nights that kept us awake ever
night from a live music, open air facility with
a coved top next door. I paid good
To the Royal Kona Resort for a place I could
rest and enjoy. They offered me free parking
for three days. I will never book with Royal
Kona again. I believe they may not have had
Another Roon to move us into. Last but
not least is that their Building need an
up grade if they are going to compete with
Other resorts. I would. Only give them a two
Hotel is right at the end of the tourist strip in Kona. Perfect for easy walking access, yet easily able to get in and out with the car when needed. Rooms were clean, although bathrooms could use updating. We had three rooms in our group and all
had leaky faucets. View of the ocean was nice for a very reasonable price. Not the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at, but definitely worth what we paid for it. Check in process took to long. Clerk seemed to type forever on what was a complete reservation. They could use lessons from the big chains on how to significantly speed up the check in process.
Very nice hotel with very friendly staff in a great location
Very good and friendly. The views are fantastic and location excellent. Close to a lot of what's happing there and great eating places. I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and keep coming back. Beds could be more comfortable and don't
fall for the Oceanfront upgrade as it may not be Oceanfront, just Oceanview. Very disappointed on this point, as I had finally put up the money to have an Oceanfront room.
