It is a nice property consisting of condos and time sharing rentals. It is in the process of coming out of the pandemic so it needs a little sprucing up and detail cleaning. Located in Kona next to restaurants and shopping. It has a front lawn and a park next to it for swimming and sun bathing

The view was amazing. I’m disappointed to say that the condo was not really supplied with anything for cooking, no spices or cooking oil made it difficult for meals and made it feel like a hotel room instead of a condo.

This was a beautiful condo in a wonderful location, walking distance from everything! We could listen to the ocean waves day and night with a beautiful view!

The room was nice and clean and the location was excellent. My major issue is that the picture of the resort looks like it faces the ocean, which is why I choose this property for my vacation. However, my room was on the ground floor facing a wooden fence - no view at all. Had I known this, I probably would not have rented in the property since I was going for a room with an ocean view. If a quiet, clean accommodation walking distance to town and right next to the beach is what you are looking for, then this is a great place to rent. If you want an ocean view, pass.

The worst part was that it was a half basement, which was not in the description. It was not actually an ocean view as it was said in the description. Other than that, it was spacious, had a very good view from the pool.

Several towers fell and Hawaiian Electric blocked off a significant part of Ali'i Drive. After circling the neighborhood for over an hour in traffic, I had finally arrived at the property. Property managers left for the day (i.e. ran away) at 1:30PM and neglected to notify us that there would be no power to the units. Moving my belongings in the dark was definitely a safety hazard. When questioned the next day, the two managers (Rebecca and Rita) got really defensive and started rambling nonsense like two senile seniors. The two were very unprofessional and took absolutely no responsibility for what happened on their property that they were managing, whether it was their fault or not. This was my 3rd time at Kona Reef and the unit that I was assigned was the dirtiest of them all. I've always had a pleasant stay at Kona Reef but these two old ladies did nothing to help with my stay. They also shouldn't ask their guests to check out at 10AM when their OWN WEBSITE states that checkout is at 11AM. If the policy was changed in July 2021, why hasn't it been updated in over 6 months? Since these two are experts at coming up with distorted excuses, I'm curious to hear what lies they'll use this time.

Everything was excellent . the sunsets .the ocean

It was close to the strip along the beach with shops and restaurants, convenient, beautiful oceanfront, Walmart , Costco, and Safeway close by.

Loved that it was close to things but especially the ocean! Also had all the appliances needed.

Property is directly next to Honl's public beach park which is noisy and active day and evenings. Homelessness is an epidemic in Hawaii and many of the displaced residents use the park for refuge. The police were called five of the seven nights we were there for violent altercations between beach patrons. It was alarming.
