Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel
- What's Included
Having made a booking earlier we got to check out the hotel when our ship anchored off Kona during our cruise around the islands and liked what we sawAfter our cruise we spent 4 nights in a ocean view room which was large with comfortable beds and a nice bathroom First order of each day was coffee from the Menehune Coffee shop next to the ABC store on the ground floor and advantage was taken of the many bars and restaurants within walking distanceWould recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Kona no matter for how long and would stay again in the future
This location was prime! Across the street was splasher's grill which was perfect for breakfast. Along the waterfront had many food options too. The Kona Boys rental on the beach and the connected ABC store was very convenient. Cheap water, good snacks.The hotel room was very clean, sufficient towels, and friendly staff. The parking was never an issue, tons of spaces even during luau days. The wifi always connected. We had a luau discount and watched the best fire dancer compared to the 3 luaus I've visited in my life.Weather was amazing, tons of couches, had a complimentary later check out, and good restaurant recommendations from staff.
Stayed here for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The room with partial ocean view is very lovely. Rooms are a good size with comfortable bed/beds. Staff poolside are great especially Sheila. Easy walking distance along the strip for restaurants, bars and shopping.
This was a wonderful place to relax in paradise for my son and I during Spring Break. The hotel is situated on historic lands connected with King Kamehameha and the hotel does a wonderful job of displaying many paintings and artifacts that tell the story of the lands and people connected with this rich historical location. Check-in was a nice experience and when we got to our room it was a top floor view of the bay and Mona Loa. Watching the moon rise behind the massive mountain above the night lights of Kona from the balcony was a highlight of the trip. The room was spacious and comfortable.It is easy to walk around the historic shopping and dining areas from the hotel. Kona Brewing Company is also a short walk and I highly recommend visiting there as the food and drink is superb. There was a nice farmers market close by a couple of days and we also were lucky to see the once monthly street art fair on Sunday. We had the breakfast buffet at the hotel a couple of times and it was very good with a wide variety of options (the fresh cut pineapple and fried rice being my favorites). We also ate at the poolside bar a couple of times which was also good. My eleven year old son spent lots of time with all the other kids in the very child friendly cove beach area. We rented snorkeling gear for the week and swam around the cove and near the pier looking at all the beautiful tropical fish.The best part of this place is the staff. I thought I might be in peril of a ruined vacation when I lost my drivers license and could not rent a car, but, I visited the concierge desk to see what I could do as an alternative. I spoke with Vahn and told him what I was wanting to see and explore with the car I would now not be able to rent. He was very intuitive at what kind of adventure I was seeking for my son and I and was able to book two tours of the active volcano region with Hawaii Forest and Trail, a tour company that ended up being perfect for what we needed. Vahn was instrumental in helping me salvage our vacation and I cannot thank him enough. Vahn also suggested eating at Kamana Kitchen, which is a short walk from the hotel, and it is exceptional (I went twice and consider it to be the best Indian food I have ever had). Nastia at the front desk was very helpful by giving us an extended check out and is a delightful presence.This is a wonderful and well run facility and my son and I will look forward to returning for a future visit. It is fitting that this place is on historically rich royal lands because we were made to feel like royalty with the wonderful hospitality of the staff at this hotel. Mahalo.
My family and I wanted to see the big island of Hawaii, and the main tourist town on the island is Kona, which is where this is located. If I had one word for the hotel itself and the amenities it would probably be average. The hotel itself had average rooms. The bathrooms are on the smaller end, and the whole room only had 2 mirrors. One located in the bathroom and one between the two beds, which we found to be quite inconvenient, as the second mirror is usually located above a desk area, out of people's way. The last thing I found inconvenient about the room was that the TV guide was hard to find and displayed channels which were unavailable for viewing. On a positive note, it had a fridge, a large closet, a good sized balcony with 2 deck chairs and a table, and the beds were quite comfortable. Now while this hotel is located on the water, and has a beach, the beach is not desirable. It is similar to a very very small puget sound beach (in Seattle) it's nothing like the vast white sand, clear water beaches they have up north on this island. The pool however is quite nice, with a bar and hot tub. The hotel also has a restaurant and spa. I would recommend the restaurant for breakfast, as it has a full menu or buffet for $25. But I would steer clear of the spa. It is small and looks right out into the lobby, I got my nails done and the only words I can use to describe my experience are bad and not relaxing one bit. While Kona may seem like a nice tourist town, there were stoners around every corner, begging for cash. And again to get a nice beach you have to drive at least half an hour. If you're looking for a beautiful Hawaiian experience in paradise don't stay here. I would recommend the Marriott at Waikoloa, it has 3 pools, its in a very nice little village/ shopping center, and is on a nice beach.
