Good place

Great location near the ocean. The place was about 8 years old and certainly looked like it had carpet and beds, couches that needed to be replaced.

Great for families

Room is big enough for six. Sandwiched between the Marriott and Hilton Waikoloa Village. #1. Beds feel like Heavenly beds. Slept comfortably. Couches not so great however. It kept shedding feathers. #2. We could walk to Kings or Queens Shopping Center. Tip however is one should stock up at Costco and save $$$. Merrimans, Romanos Marcaroni Grill and Roys for a nice night out. #3. Full Kitchen with granite countertops and BBQ in Lanai! Pack some spices in your suitcase; none stocked. #4. A Bay Beach and pool within walking distance. #5. Short drive to Hapuna State Beach which is a must and room is stocked with ice cooler, beach chairs and beach towels. Overall, would stay again w/o hesitation.

Good value

We stayed last week of Dec 2011 in unit 9E. The condo is in a perfect location. It is literally on A-Bay beach and next to 2 shopping malls and many restaurants. The unit is nicely furnished and we love the convenience of the kitchen and the washer/dryer. The only complaint is that the pool is not heated and everyone entering the pool complained about how cold the water is. Also there is only one pool and hot tub on the property and it gets crowded. My unit was managed by Outrigger Condo and I am surprised that there is no daily housekeeping service. I was told that housekeeping would come every 7 days! So you need to make your own bed and clean up after yourself.

Kolea 11F was awesome beyond expectation

Kolea is beyond expectation. The grounds are impeccable. Our arrival couldn't have been better. Everything was sent to us in advance and there were no hiccups anywhere. The condo we stayed at, Kolea 11F, was decorated and furnished beautifully and everything, including spices, hair dryer, and even a waffle iron were there. They had boogie boards and a fishing pole for us as well. Seriously, this place rocked. A-Bay was fabulous. Best sunsets we have ever seen. Lounge chairs down there to sit on were great as well and water was warm and gorgeous. We have decided to come again next year and will probably always come back. This condo was exactly what we were hoping for in paradise.

Every Friday night at the Queens Marketplace they have an outdoor movie for the family and it is for FREE. This was so impressive to our family and it was so much fun for the kids. Grab your chair and popcorn and head down for a night of fun. Movie starts at dusk.

First class property in great location

We had a first-class unit during our week-long stay. The property is in a prim Waikoloa location and the grounds and amenities are exceptionally well-maintained. While we prefer a full-service hotel over condos, it's hard to do better than this while staying in condos.

Kolea Condos - Pretty Nice Place to Stay

We stayed at Kolea and found a room [...] at what was a decent rate. This property is a condo - each unit is different in many respects, but all are quite nice. We had family and friends staying in three other units as well.This place is super-posh and compared to hotels it is really hard to say it isn't an excellent value, even if it isn't inexpensive. Check-in was a bit esoteric - We needed to pick up the keys from a management company tucked away at Kings' Mall. They closed before our arrival, but my sister was able to get the keys. There is a lock box, but we would have had no idea as to the combination without calling someone. It would be nice if the check-in procedure were better communicated.I've said the most important thing about a room when traveling is that it has a decent shower and I get a good night's sleep. The shower was very good - HUGE, marble, plenty of water pressure. The pillow-top king-sized bed (Simmons Beautyrest) in the master suite, on the other hand, was a bit too soft for my liking, and the pillows a bit too firm. My sister's unit had a very firm (too firm for them) queen bed. The other critical factor in a good night's sleep is climate control. Our a/c unit struck me as over matched for our two-bedroom unit. It would get too warm, then blow icy air, then get too warm again. We slept best with it set at 74. The ideal solution would probably be to set it at 68 degrees and pile on the covers, but that isn't very eco-friendly, and there weren't any extra blankets in the unit. A good climate control system should be almost invisible, this one was quite apparent. We did try a couple nights with the windows open, but it was just too warm and a bit noisy with the sprinklers cycling at night and travelers in neighboring units setting out for golf at 5:30 a.m.Everything about Kolea is very high quality, almost to excess - the appliances are Viking or high-end KitchenAid and apparently hardly ever used. We did use the toaster oven and we grilled on the lanai every other night. I, for one, was disturbed by the excess: lavish African Mahogany cabinetry and trim (having traveled extensively in West and Central Africa, I doubt it was FSC certified), overly complicated lighting systems, spare refrigerators on the lanais, lush landscaping on the desert side of the island, etc. It seems the place could have a bit more conscience and still be just as nice. Our unit was listed on Orbitz as having dial-up (using guest's service!) Internet. There was a router in our unit, but apparently service had been discontinued. This didn't matter as we were able to select from several unsecured wi-fi offerings from our neighbors. The grounds are very well-maintained and there are some shops and restaurants within walking distance. Our daughter really enjoyed the hula lessons and hula shows at the Queens' Market which was a nice ten minute walk from our unit.Restaurants at Queens' and Kings' are decent. We found the Merriman's acceptable for salads only, and Sensei a decent value if you get the early-bird special. We also enjoyed getting away for lunch and found the seafood very good at Cafe Pesto, a few miles up the beach. The wine list at Sensei was decent, and there is a lot of good wine available on the island at the Gourmet Market at Queens' and at an excellent wine shop in Kailua-Kona across from Target.The Kolea pool was really nice, maybe a bit small, but it was never very crowded. The water temperature was fine and the chlorine wasn't oppressive. The beach is a short walk from the pool, though we weren't that impressed by A-Bay. When we first arrived, the water was quite green with lots of algae (phosphorus run-off from the landscaping?) but after a nice storm it cleared out a bit. For swimming it is risky as there are a lot of coral in the sand making it too easy to cut your foot. Snorkeling was decent, but the water was a bit cloudy.Highway access is excellent, and getting to/from the a...

Take in the hula show at the Queens' Market (while we were there it was on Wednesday Evenings) - it is a lot of fun and the performers are very talented.
