Hawaiian getaway for canoeing, dolphin swims, and Holoholo tours

Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay on Hawaii, the Big Island, is a blend of adventure, culture, heritage and authentic Hawaiian aloha hospitality. Situated on the iconic lava rocks of the Kona coast, overlooking historically significant Keauhou Bay, guests relax, experience and create memories with family and friends. The newly revitalized and completely unique oceanfront resort flourishes with naturally landscaped lands that were once the birthplace and playgrounds of kings which offer visitors a profound sense of place and storytelling that can be shared and appreciated across many generations. Considered the "Gateway to the Bay," the Flying Fish outfitters store provides an all-access pass to fun and adventure where guests can have immediate access to paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, surfing, boat tours and exploring the pristine reef. The ocean view restaurants partner with local farms and fishermen to serve only the freshest ingredients. Rays on the Bay is the world's only restaurant where diners can enjoy live music seven nights per week by fire pit and observe majestic Manta Rays in their natural habitat. Under the stars, a weekly luau offers a colorful journey through history. Offering the most ultimate pool experience on the Kona coast, patrons rave about the 200-foot lava tube water slide, hot tubs, sprouting fountains and sandy-bottomed children's play area. Ho'ola Spa offers a healing Himalayan Salt Room and an oceanfront treatment patio. Whether culture seeker, romantic or ocean or land explorer, vacationers find themselves in the perfect location to discover and experience the beauty of Hawaii.

The end of a great vacation.

From check-in to check-out this was a fabulous resort. I was on the big island for 5 weeks and stayed at two other locations to just have a variety of locales. This was the best way to end my stay. The room was quite spacious and a wonderful fragrance wafted about. Sleep came easily in the most comfy bed with lots of pillows. The pool area was beautiful and had a great area for children. Even "big" kids enjoyed the 2 story slide. Cabanas spaced around the pool added a touch of luxury. Waves crashing over the lava rocks were spectacular and just spend a few minutes watching the ocean and whales were breaching. Ray's on the Bay was the perfect place to watch glorious sunsets while dining and listening to Hawaiian music of LT Smooth was sublime. The resort is not close to town so for excursions a rental car would be needed. However, there is a trolley that runs regularly and your resort fee gives you free access to that. I can't think of a thing I didn't like except the fact that I didn't stay longer.

Sheraton in Kona

There is NO way this hotel should be classified as a FOUR star hotel. I honestly have no idea how it got into this high of a category, because it is old, outdated, and just lacks an overall "vibe" or "personality". The rooms are just average. Our bathroom was quite outdated, peeling caulking around the shower tile, and literally the toilet had one of those industrial flushers that you see at parks/outdoor restrooms….the kind that you use your foot to flush with. That was our toilet, in our bathroom, at a four star hotel. Outside the property just lacks something….there is a lot of metal fencing everywhere, which made it seem somewhat industrial feeling. Landscaping is average, and there just seems to be a lot of things "in repair" or kinda semi-fixed. The lights went out in the pool one night, as well as all the other outside pool area lighting. I will say though the staff is super nice, no complaints there at all, and the water slide was fun for our 5 year old. One other thing that didn't work for us were the other hotel guests…….quite a few loud, obnoxious types there, some drinking quite a lot, and others, well just, not quite our speed. I will not stay at this hotel again though. :(

Make an early evening reservation at Huggos- we got there at 6:30pm, perfect for a Hawaiian sunset viewing, on the water. Food is excellent.

So So

Hotel accommodations were ok. Location is a little remote from the main town. Hotel staff would mop the floors between 12am and 1am. They would run a plastic mop bucket with wheels up and down the rough concrete hallway floors which made a lot of noise in the middle of the night. I never valet parked my car but the Valet parking guys are not friendly and make you feel like you are a burden whenever you say hi to them as you pass by.

Fit the experience

Stayed at this location as part of the Kona Marathon. Check-in was quick and easy. Room was good size and well-appointed. Disappointed no late check out for post-marathon clean-up because hotel was at capacity but didn't turn out to be an issue. 3-stars for room cleanliness only because hotel amenity brochures and room service order forms seemed to have been handled previously by sticky hands. My understanding from locals this hotel is among the best in the Kona area.

Sheraton Keahou

The hotel is clean but it is a little bit dated. Overall experience was very good. Staff are excellent. would stay here again and recommend the hotel to friends. The only issue is that if you use the hotel services they add an additional $100 to the charge on your credit card. It takes 7 - 100 business days after you leave the hotel to clear off the card. I racked up $1,800 of pending transactions without realising and still havent received the funds back although I checked out on Monday.

It was very relaxing yet exciting. Just far enough away from the action to be able to relax and enjoy the lovely pool facilities. Definitely worth the price.

Nice hotel

The pool and pool slide were lots of fun, even for adults. The restaurant and bar were a bit pricey but not totally out of line for the area. It's not close to town but there is free parking if you have a car and a free shuttle bus if you don't. The manta ray talk in the evening was informative but the observation deck in itself was overrated.
