Had a horrible time checking into property. NO one was available to help me. Had to pay an additional $260 to rent another room. Travelocity support was not helpful.

Ocean front views, worth every penny!

Pros: Location, privacy, amenities. Pool and hot tub, along with ocean front views, spectacular!
Comfortable and convenient to town, easily within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and cultural sites in Kailua. Pool was peaceful and private for condo residents only. Directions for parking/condo access needs to be clarified, but we did figure it out. Wonderful stay, already planning our next Hawaii vacation.

A great location - close to excellent beaches and downtown Kona

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was our first trip to Kona. The condo was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. The staff were courteous and helpful. We rented a car, but we barely used it as the resort is located within easy walking distance to downtown Kona and within 5 minutes drives to awesome boogie-boarding and snorkelling beaches. For those of you that like to run, this resort is located on Alii Drive which has a well-maintained running/biking lane that is clearly marked with mile markers. For those of you looking for activities, the Manta Ray night snorkel (operated by Coral Reef Adventures) is a must do! You leave from the Marina which is 10 - 15 minutes from the resort. Our vacation was both relaxing and enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location. Can walk to Kailua, Kona villiage. Near shopping.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, near beaches and downtown
This is a moderate, clean and well run resort. While not a 5 Star facility it is well run, maintained and cleaned with very pleasant staff. There are 2 beaches within 4 miles that are well-suited for snorkeling and swimming. Sometimes noise is a minor problem but we would recommend this resort. Also it is on the water and has many local surfers, but the currents at this location make the nearby beaches a better choice for the average swimmer.

WORST ROOM EVER AND STAFF DIDN'T CARE

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet, Noisy
This was the worst room I have ever stayed in. Urine and Feces all over the bathroom: eg toilet, floor, walls, shower fixtures ect. The entire room smelled of urine and I heard many others complaining of the same thing. Kitchen was dirty as well, dirty fridge with dried food inside and out, same on trash can and floor. Stained bed linens and large lumps in small double bed that they say is a queen. I know a queen and this it was not.

this is not a hotel, it is actually a condo privately owned and rented out.

this is not a hotel, it is actually condos privately owned and rented out. Perhaps there could be a variation in condo to condo, in terms of cleanliness etc. I did not check carefully and had thought this was a hotel. I thought it was not that clean or nice, and for the price paid I could have easily stayed at the hotel down the street that would be way nicer. I looked at all the positive reviews, so that is why I chose this place, next time, I will do my homework. Will not stay here again. I was looking for more comfort and cleanliness. But if you have a family and are staying for a longer time, this might be what you are looking for. I was really surprised when I could see the laundry hanging off the balconies, and it looked like people were living there, so it really took a lot away from the ‘vacation feel’ of staying in a nice hotel.

Kona Reef excellent Condo with nice swimming pool and ocean views

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, ocean front/sunset views
We stayed for a week and enjoyed the Kona coast and sunset from our condo. The rooms were very clean and kitchen had everything. We didn’t have a car, but the activities, shops and restaurants were close.

More information should have been given.

Great place to stay and convenient location. Only draw back the pool was being renovated and out of use. I think we should have been told this when booking. We left our winter to go and holiday with a pool and was looking forward to swimming. Very disappointed.
