Need to update this hotel

Overall my stay was not that bad. This is prime estate.. right on the water and within walking distance to the town. They have a great bar and great view of the ocean.The hotel is old and in badly need of renovation. I don;t understand why that have not. The chest of drawers in the room was so bad it was difficult to open each drawer. you could hear people in the next room also trying to open the drawers. Unbelievable. I don't think I would stay here again.

Appalling don't stay at this rubbish

So looked lovely on arrival was met with the rudest person ever on the desk no welcome whatsoever As we don't spend a lot of time at hotel we were shocked to discover that neither the pool or lagoon was open to paying guests, when queried after standing in a line for god knows how long was met with shoulder shrugs and useless information A wedding set for 2 hours away for 16 guests was way more important than the rest of the patrons apparently My question was if the hotel could not provide a swimming area could they recommend one 'ummm not really you could drive somewhere' I was told. Really maybe you should learn about the area you work inAs we had spent the day driving the last thing we wanted was to get back into a car and drive some moreAnd we still have to stay in this dump for another 2 nights what a hideous dumpYes it also smells and must be the only accommodation on the planet that charges for wifi what a joke

I have stayed here before a year ago I think. The hotel/resort has a very touristy feel. Very hawaiian. I mean its not a bad thing, afterall people do come here for vacation. The water is right by the hotel. There is also a bunch of restaurants and eating places around. There is a lagoon which is where most of the people stay to swim at. The pool is also sizable. The hotel offers a lot of stuff for the guests. There's tour booth for tour guide packages, a fitness center, a painting display or exhibit of the history in Kona, a real boat display, lounge area, boarding pass printers, golf and sports store, abc store, tennis court and business center among others. The hotel room is very spacious. You get a balcony with seats and a coffee table. You also get a blue towel specifically for beach use which I find to be a very nice touch. Theres a fridge available in the room. Complete toilet amenities and high quality too. Beds are comfortable and soft but firm. You will truly experience a top notch hawaiian vacation stay.

Kona Blowout

Great hotel. Location the best. Right on ocean and next to the heart of Kona. Get the best room possible. It's worth it. Internet extra but flawless. Downstairs bar is right on ocean with huge overhead tv. Great for sports fans. It's a party place. Check it out.

I stayed in this resort on my Big visit on the Big Island. Room are spacious, but the carpet stink. I booked it through Expedia. It was very big and spacious, but not too clean. They don't come and clean daily since is a timeshare. You have to do your own bed.
