Great location for my husband business

Would recommend Tue, Sep 9, 2014
The Royal Kona resort, was very nice, the only improvement would be better A/C. Otherwise the view was Amazing!! I almost forgot, we only got clean towels, the first day we were there, the maid never gave new towels, the 2 nights, late checkout (6:00pm) and she didn't clean the room at all the last day. Our towels were kind of yucky by then!

Kona return trip

Would not recommend Fri, Sep 5, 2014
We stayed at this hotel on our first trip to Kona about 14 years ago. The hotel is in a great location for walking to shops and places to eat. The rooms and the furniture looks like they have not changed anything since our last visit. The rooms need to be remodeled and the furniture needs to be updated.

Royal Kona-August-2014

Would not recommend Thu, Aug 21, 2014
Great location on the big island of HI. The builidng is rather outdated (late 1960s). Amenities are OK. Does have a seaside enclave for a salty swim. The interriors of the detached building needs serious refurbishing. The carpets are old and the tiled floors are worn out. The off-season rate was competitive. Good Luau!

Money saver

The Sheraton and Marriott are higher cost but much better options (not close to Kona City area).

A Taste of Old Hawaii

Would recommend Thu, Aug 14, 2014
This hotel has the feel of an Elvis movie without feeling old. Let's call it 'vintage chic.' Great location. We overlooked the lagoon, ocean and mountain side. The restaurant is excellent as well as the bar. (Special shout out to Misty the bartender. She mixes a mean drink and serves up some great sass.)

Still waiting to for Hotel Managment to contact me

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 13, 2014
I stayed at this resort on August 5, 2014 and checked out on August 6, 2014. My trip was ruined because of the resort and treatment by staff after I was badly injured at resort. Around 4pm on August 5, 2014 I cut my toe severely while swimming in their lagoon. There was no warning sign at the deep part of the extremely dangerous lagoon. After getting injured as I bled all over the resort to guest services for first aide. When asking for help I was told to wait and was ignored. I then went to the bathroom since my accident was not important and got towels to try and stop the bleeding. Till a other guest got help for me. Then after 10-15 minutes security did a report and got me first aide. No one asked if I needed any help. Later that evening the wound would not stop bleeding and I had to go to ER in Kona where I had to get a shot, medication, and ended up sleeping in the hospital the majority of the night and not enjoying my hotel room bed. I am still waiting to hear back from the hotel management and what they plan to make up for my trip being bad. It's now approaching a week.

Great stay!

Would recommend Sun, Aug 3, 2014
Great location, awesome bar, awesome entrance! This is a really fun place to stay as a couple! Don'so tiki bar is downstairs, and Hugo's restaurant is next door. Great value and great size room. Not brand new, but, very clean and friendly and walking distance to downtown Kailua (5-10 minute walk).

Good location, nice staff, dated rooms

Would recommend Sun, Jul 27, 2014
The location of this hotel is right where all the restaurants are in Kona.There are plenty of places to walk to and have dinner or lunch. Parking is not included and it is $10/night. Staff is pleasant and helpful. The rooms are dated. Nothing Royal here. Old carpet, old furniture and new TV. The room we had was rather spacious and also had a big balcony. Bathroom is tiny. There was microwave and small fridge. This is a good hotel if luxury is not on your mind and want to save a couple bucks. I hope this will help someone decide.

Kona visitor

Would recommend Fri, Jun 27, 2014
Room was very nice with a fantastic view of ocean surf. As to be expected though with a location constantly bombarded with salt air, most everything metal was rusting. Snorkeled lagoon pool with lots of fish to see. Within walking distance of all the shops.

Average Experience

Would recommend Sat, Jun 7, 2014
The hotel has good potential in terms of location, amenities, activities etc. May need some remodeling around the building. Had to actually switch rooms because the A/C was leaking water due to clogged and dirty A/C system. Most staff members are pleasant but the lady who checked us in and switched rooms the next day was unfriendly and unapproachable.

amazing value

Would recommend Sat, Jun 7, 2014
We had an ocean view room and it doesnt get any better and better yet, it didnt break the bank. The rooms themselves are nothing special, but the view more than makes up for it. It's situated perfectly within walking distance of a lot of restaurants and bars. The staff was also incredibly helpful and attentitive. I will definitely be going back.

Dining

About a quarter block from the hotel is a cluster of great dining options. Just make sure to load up on booze at the ABC store because all everything starts shutting down around 10. And because theres not much night life, its tough on singles haha.
