The staff was amazing, and the food was delicious. We spent our 21 wedding anniversary here, and had a great time.

Great Experience But Not the Deal Expected
It was a great hotel with wonderful service. The room was updated and had a balcony overlooking the pool. Check the fine print though! There's a per night resort fee and only paid parking that ballooned the per night price by 30%. It wasn't the deal it seemed to be.

The bay view was obstructed by a parking lot, but overall it is a nice resort.

Kona Kai Resort is top shelf.....
It was just an over night stay to relax from business and general everyday life, and even though I have lived in San Diego over 25 years, this was my first time in the Kona Kai resort. Holy mackerel ! .... This was as perfect an over night stay as I could have imagined... The property was as beautiful as I could have imagined. The room perfect in every sense. Breakfast in the morning was as good as I ever had, ( and I have been in food service for 45 years, currently as an owner). I have been staying around the county for the last 3 Monday/Tuesday as a getaway from the daily grind and this resort is remarkable. I have nothing to add but that I will be back in a month for a couple of days again. Perfect job, perfect place, perfect expertence....

Needs better desk employees
Check in was a nightmare. Clerk was rude. Room was not ready at 6 pm and he made effort to get it ready. He was too busy arguing with other desk clerk. We ended up in a room that did not meet what we paid for. Very disappointed
