Best Location in Kona

Brilliant Location, so close to restaurants and shops. Beautiful view from the room- even 'partial sea view' was great. The wifi in rooms is not included which surprised us as its not a cheap hotel, however the Beachcomber bar downstairs has free WiFi access.

Beautiful location

Best location in Kona! Beautiful resort located on the waterfront in downtown Kona. Watching the sunset by the pool or bar is a beautiful. Walk across the street for shopping, farmers market and many other restaurants. Rooms are clean, spacious and well furnished. The weekly Luau held by the beach is "must do". Great food, drinks, service and show!!

anyone below managers suck

Wendy the manager is awesome but anybody else sucks. Too many issues from checking in to having dinner and being told you must have reservations with nothing saying you have too and being turned away Wendy made all mistakes correct. But shouldn't have to ask for manager daily on staff incompetence.

Old and quirky and we loved it!

We stayed for 5 nights in the Lagoon Wing, it overlooks the rock lagoon, a great place to have a swim with the beautiful tropical fish. The bed was very comfy and we slept well with the sound of the waves crashing onto the rocks. The room was rather dark, but was very roomy (much larger than modern rooms) and had everything that you needed, the balcony size was also generous! The hotel was built in the 60's and must have been very grand in the day, it is still very functional and much more interesting than a lot of sterile modern buildings. The open air bar area (next to pool area, with free wifi) has a daily happy hour from 4-6pm where some of the cocktails are reduced, they also have a menu with enough choices to keep you happy for three or four days. The restaurant is only open for the second half of the week. Carpark has a charge of $10 per day. At least three nights of the week they have the luau, if you don't want to try the food you can sit in the pool area or the left hand side of the bar area and enjoy the show for free!

Great location however it is starting to show its age. .

Great location close to restaurant's and shops. Trolley stop just across the road. We received a great discount on the luau. However it is starting to show its age. Some staff on reception are great. Room was clean and tidy. The tower we stayed in was closest to Bongo Ben's so on weekends be prepared for lots of noise but worth it for the view.
