I love this place. Despite the rude arrogant man at check in. The girls at check in were great except, they give you an aweful lot of info at once. The guy that gives you your parking tag was really a bad example for being one of the first people you come in contact with at this property. Did not like his attitude at all! Very rude! On the other hand, I like this place because it is usually very peaceful and quiet. Except for that barking dog in the unit above, it’s usually quiet. I like that there is a quiet pool and a pool for the loud crowd. They have pretty many grills for barbecue dinner, but it makes no sense to say no using barbecue during the entertainment which happened to be scheduled right at dinner time. We noticed the bathtub was a bit slippery. It did have somewhat of a nonslip surface, but it may need a non slip pad as I did slip in the tub my first step in. We saw Dolphins and whales right from our lanai! The staff was great and friendly! Except the one dude at the concierge desk, he should go work where he’s not dealing with people. I do love this place! I stay there every time I go.

We loved the views and the size and amenities the room had. We loved staying there and would do so again. It was hard to leave!

I loved how close I was to the swimming pool and ocean. I liked the openness of the room.

Our place was clean, the staff was always very nice and helpful. Very glad we stayed here.

The only thing that I wasn’t pleased with was that there was a $225 cleaning fee at check out. We left the condo in great condition when we checked out.

Roaches in the room. Roaches outside. Staff was not able to get the things that we asked for, towels etc. No room cleaned till you leave. Then charged 200.00 for the cleaning service.

Hotel was located close to shops and restaurants. Staff was excellent. However, the condos are dated. Furniture and carpet worn, needed deep cleaning. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well equiped. Everything was in working order. Overall good place to stay at.

We had the time of our lives there. We got married on the island. So our stay there was our honeymoon too. Close to the fun stuff in town but far enough away that it is quite. i would so recommend. People there are so sweet and helpful too. I only wish there cleaning when your in a timeshare was a little better. we had not service at all. other then that AWESOME !!!!!

This condo was gorgeous - very homey, with nice touches like a cooler in the closet for outings and complementary body boards and beach chairs to take along. The beds were great, with plenty of space for us and our 3 teens. We had two lanais with beautiful views of the ocean. The worst part about the room was having to check out!!!

The hotel was centrally located and looks renovated - 5/10 mins walk to downtown Kona and a great 4.5 mi walk or jog path (road side) just outside the hotel. We had a rental car, so was able to go to Hilo and visited many sights in a day, visited many beaches and hiking trails in our two-week trip. Don't be mislead by the description "garden view" - you may have the view of tree tops, a peak of ocean and the parking lot #that's what we had# but we were compensated with an updated unit #updated within last 5-10 years#, close to the elevator and with a quiet air con and working #a plus#. We requested for clarification of "garden view" and change of unit with better view. We were informed that "garden view" basically means "no view" and if we want a view, we can pay for upgrade. There was not much information provided at the time of check-in; five days later, when we enquired we were provided with information that #upon request# there are additional costs for cleaning services, towel changes and extra laundry powder packs #nominal cost#. This hotel is quiet and great as the main starting/meeting location. We would return for that reason. If you can afford the additional costs, highly recommend to go for the ocean front unit. We would if we decide to return to Kona in a future vacation.

The building complex has beautiful ocean front access and two pools. Rooms are condominiums and thus vary. Our rooms were more spacious than described with a full kitchen and laundry. The sunset and ocean views from our two private patios were outstanding.

We would not recommend or go here again. My sister & mother inlaw's 1st room smelled moldy / musty, the carpets had large stains on them. The appliances were rusty in all the rooms and ants were running round. After complaining the hotel put them in another room which smelled musty too, the inside dishwasher rack was so rusty that we couldn't use it and had to wash the dishes by hand. This room had stains on the carpets too. The fridge had a water drip on the outside that never stopped, The microwave was the loudest I have ever heard. The rooms seemed poorly updated & repaired. Our room smelled musty too despite having wall to wall tile. We tried using fabreeze in all the rooms and it only worked for a day then the smell came back. It didn't seem like the staff wanted to help & told us that they didn't have any other rooms. We felt like they didn't have any better rooms & we had no choice and had to settle. Our bed was hard as a rock even with a foam topper put on it. The pool was so cold no one seemed to want to use it. Good points for these rooms were nice views of the ocean & not far from Kailua Kona strip . Over all not a good place to stay.

great location, my teens could walk to the shopping area. Rooms were clean and comfy. We however were as far away from the pool and ocean as you could get, so it was quite a walk to the pool. Our room was on the road so you could here traffic instead of ocean. There is no restaurant on site. Nice place but I would pick differently knowing what I do now.

This property is in need of an update. The room was very clearly mostly original installation from the late 70s/early 80s. Fridge door didn't close right and the outside was rusting. Trim around the counter tops was peeling off. Rack in the dishwasher was delaminating and rusting. Bathroom door didn't close right and the bathroom faucet leaked. They also had an insect problem, as the room reeked of insectiside. Location is a bit south on Alii Drive, so to get to restaurants in Kailua is a bit of a walk. They had some sort of issue with the parking gate and instead of raising the gate for me, the maintenance guy directed us to wait in the parking area for 20 min (meantime he let 3 other cars through) while they worked on it. Oh, and despite their own brochure saying that they cleaned the rooms every 3 days, our room was never serviced over the course of a week's stay.

Their was a group of about 30 of us that flew into Kona/Big Island for my son wedding. Everyone love the the hotel, and the staff was great.

We have stayed here before, and it is a great place to stay. It has been recently remodeled with very nice touches. Very comfortable, and great location. Close to great dining in Kailua, snorkeling, and Kona airport.

We drove from Kailua-Kona to the Volcano NP, traveled in area of Kailua and Kona. We were surprised that we had a unit that had a kitchen and sitting room along with the bedrooms.

Once we were able to check in to the condo after the tsunami we were thrilled with the accomodations. The view from the lanai was absolutely fabulous. Gorgeous sunsets. There were two pools available - both were great. Staff was very helpful - enjoyed snacks and hula at the south pool several nights. We will definately come back. Loved it!
