Kanaloa at Kona by Outrigger

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Condo was spacious, perfect location for pool, beach, downtown, and airport. Great price when coupled with flight.

We had a fabulous oceanfront condo, so couldn't ask for a more perfect setting. Convenient location South of Kailua Kona. Condo was very tastefully decorated and week equipped with everything we needed. Only drawback was a cleaning fee that we were not informed of when booking. Highly recommended otherwise.

A nice relaxing condo. Completely furnished with everything you would need., except your food of course

Road signage is non-existent so it was difficult to find upon arrival. Good value for money. Resort consists of 4 condo units per building; we had very heavy-footed neighbors the first few days and noisy ones next door. Unit was very comfortable w/lots of room and updated amenities. Needs refurbishing; dirty and worn carpet in dining area. No air conditioning; only fans. Some units have AC so request it. Also ask for pest control. Lots of tiny ants because of outdoor foliage. Staff is responsive.

We absolutely enjoyed our week stay at this resort! The unit was very nice (a little dated)...the staff was so very pleasant and helpful. We did not use the pool or tennis courts because we were too busy going to other sites on the island.

THE PLACE WAS VERY NICE AND CLEAN.. CLOSE TO SHOPPING AND BEACH..

Condo was very spacious and comfortable. Fantastic view, right on the water. Only detractor was carrying suitcases up to the second floor, may be an issue for some but was well worth the perch overlooking the Pacific. Great sunsets from the room.

A 9 day visit. Place is at end of residential road and isolated. You can not walk anywhere off compound. Great bedroom with K bed, great modern bath, sad kitchen with marginal appliances, no useful dinning area and large living room. 2 Lanai: 1 off bedroom looks at garage, 1 off front looks at distant fairway and other condos. (No views of anything) Housekeeping every 3rd day has been discontinued. Gated but gate is always open. Everything is several miles away. Buildings are very close, almost urban setting. 3 nice pools and great staff.

My family and I had a great time during our visit. The room/condo was clean and very nice. The staff was friendly and we would recommend this business to anyone.

Nice complex south of the busiest tourist action, great location close to snorkeling. Quiet until a junior high basketball team moved in above us...but we would go back.

We picked the Outrigger Konaloa at Kona from the internet, and were very pleased with the choice for our 3-generation family vacation in Hawaii. Our first-floor unit was spacious and comfortable, with great view of the golf course and ocean. It was not air conditioned, but was comfortable with ceiling fans and open vent louvers. The location is remote from Kona center, but within walking distance of a good shopping center with grocery, drugstore, and several good restaurants. With a one-year-old, we didn't do many of the more adventurous activities, but visited beaches on the Kohala Coast, and made one day trip around the entire island, including stops at Waimea, Waipio Bay, Hilo, and Volcano National Park. The restaurants and activities recommended by [...], the Activities Director, were all right on! Only disappointment with the condos was that the beautiful ocean-side pool and cafe were closed for renovation. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Very friendly staff. Our plane landed late and we had not been able to call ahead to advise we would be late checking in. It was absolutely "No Problem", our keys and information was waiting at the security entrance. The condo was very welcoming when we arrived and was cleaned every 3 days. It was very quiet and relaxing, and close to all the best beaches.

This is our first time in Hawaii. Not knowing what is good and what is better, we decided to find a hotel that is quite and restful. This hotel is absolutely the best one I have ever had and I am very happy to have it for our honeymoon. All the rooms are very large, living room, kitchen, bedroom and even front and back porches. We can see the ocean from our back porch and great sunset in our front porch. We just love it.

The grounds are beautiful and fastidiously maintained. There is no beach access (which is clear from the [...] description, but it may be of assistance to know that the best beaches are on the Kohala coast and are at least a half an hour away). The cleaning of the rooms was to occur every three days, but we were unable to figure out how they calculated "three days"... It was more like every fourth or fifth day. At times, we felt that the owners of the units were not happy about the use of the premises and amenities by the Outrigger guests.

The condo was very "home-like". Seperate rooms, nice furniture. Our problem was, on the Big Island, we were hardly ever in the condo! We would get up at 6 or 7 in the morning and be gone all day until 7 or 8 at night. There is a new shopping mall up the hill that has good restaurants and a grocery store. I thought the place might be older, but it seemed very well kept. I would stay there again.

Easy to find, just south of Kona Town. Our unit overlooked the pool and the ocean. Very clean. Beautiful view of the ocean. Kitchen was clean and had all the items you would need. Fantastic gas grill just outside by the pool. We cooked our own food an saved a ton of money. Bathrooms are clean. Great tennis courts. We did not use the A/C and felt very comfortable with the ocean breeze and ceiling fans. Would rent again, but stay longer!

Kanaloa Condos are well kept with quiet beauty & serenity. Not far from downtown Kona & very close (walking distance) to a great beach. Wonderful & relaxing experience!

Before we made the reservation, we reviewed the prior comments, which were all good. Although we noticed a rating drop between 2008 and 2009, which continues. I was not aware that this is a private condo and not a hotel. I am unsure why the Outrigger name is on it. This should be explained. When we arrived, we were expected by the daytime only staff. I do not know what would have happened if we arrived after 5:00.P.M. Our condo was a spacious, waterfront unit on the second floor. In order to reach the first living level, we had to climb 1/2 flight of stairs from the parking lot and another two flights (all outside)to our front door. From there, we had to climb another full flight (inside)to the first living level (kitchen, dining and living rooms) and a fifth flight to the master bedroom.We are in good shape and did it, but many people may have trouble, especially with large bags. It was hot and we worked up a sweat. Snow shoveling is easier. We knew there would be no a/c, but the large fan in the first living level was broken and made the evenings in the area hot and stuffy. The top floor fans worked and were welcome.The promise of room service was broken. We went out early in the morning and when we came back, no service at all and no new towels. We had a message from the part-time desk asking if we need anything, but by the time we returned, the desk had closed for the day. The restaurant was closed for renovations, but there were plenty of other places to eat in the area. I think it was a reasonable value, but these second floor units with 5 flights of stairs to access them should be disclosed. Room service, as promised, would be appreciated. We think we are owed some refund for the lack of promised service[...]

Very comfortable and good location.

We didn't even stay there the first night, taxi driver couldn't find it, hotel would not give us credit for one night as we had prepaid the whole week. We had to stay at another hotel, till the enxt day when we could find this place. The condo was very dirty, dusty, dead bugs, it was obviously not cleaned or checked before we got there. Very disapointed that they would not credit us for the first night as we did not stay there because the taxi driver couldn't find it!!
