The staff is so polite and friendly, room was wonderful,the bed and comfortabilty was amazing. Had great food and the whole experience was more than what we can ask for!

The Hawaiian vibe and private beach were great! Room service was quick and awesome. However the walls were very thin and you could hear into the rooms next door. Plus the rooms smelled a little musty

There was attention to detail everywhere. Whether it was the attendants at the pool picking up towels and trash, the gardeners or the excellent front desk staff. We felt well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be back.

What bothered me when house keep cleaned my room they did not replace all my towels and never left me a bath tub towel when stepping out of shower also didn't replace any towels I know I was the only one staying there and when first checked in there was enough towels that would last me my stay 3 nights, I was given 2 beds in my room which is ok but if there is 2 beds usually enough towels for 2 people, yes I did leave a tip for house keep if I grade them a 4 out of 10

I honestly had a great experience with this resort, I booked this place for my birthday and they surprised me with wine and sweets it was so beautiful, I got the exact room I wanted which was a plus

Please be aware, the room you book with Orbitz will not be a remolded room. The room I received was definitely not what was advertised online. My room had bugs, it’s smelled old & moldy. I didn’t get the view I was expecting. I was really disappointed. I felt catfished. I would not recommend booking at this resort.

The property was breathtaking and beautiful throughout. It had everything you need right there and in the perfect location

The property is clean and beautiful! The two pools have great views of the marina. Great location close to gas lamp district and sea port village. Relaxing. Vessel the restaurant on site was hit or miss or food- the mussels that I had were huge and tasted amazing however my husband s steak wasn’t very good. The service by the waitresses and waters were slow. The manager of Vessel was so helpful in emailing me itemized food receipts from the restaurant as I was staying there on a work conference, would love to come back again next year!

The property itself is beautiful and the staff was fantastic. The room had uncomfortable beds and the showers needed an update.

The Kona was great we only had a few tiny issues. 1. We put out room service card out for breakfast the next day but some how the card got lost so no breakfast. Two nothing we used in the room was replaced. To include the room service card.

Wonderful location. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The room was clean and updated. We had a great stay!

Our stay was a nice one. With the only exception was at check in we asked if it was possible for a second floor room they said they would check. Two and a half hours later they accommodated our request.
