Great location. Hotel needs work.
Great location right on the beautiful Kailua-Kona shoreline. Nightly ocean sunset views and a great oceanfront bar are a plus. However, the resort leaves quite a bit to be desired. At least one of the 3 towers is in dire need of renovations. Atrium is a construction zone. Room walls and ceilings are stained. Sink in the room backs up with a murky, muddy substance, and there is mold covering the bathroom walls and shower. The pool and lagoon are not impressive. Service was OK but does not stand out. Would not stay again.

Loved It!!!! Can wait to return!
This was the nicest place we've ever stayed! Beautiful rooms and views. So much to do on the property. Great food and yummy drinks. Easy check in and out. Small charge for parking, but worth it to have car close and safe. All charge something. Lovely grounds, pool, entertainment, Luau. This is what you think of when you think of vintage Hawaii. Plenty of shopping, restaurants and fun all with in walking distance. Friendly vibe. Can't wait to return.

Great Location on the Big Island!

February Vacation
One of the nicer places in that location. Room was satisifactory. It is a beach room vs a fancy hotel room. Balconies are nice although lock your sliding glass door when you leave. One could easily hop into your neighbors on the left or right balcony. Restraurant and bar were great. Luau was great. Nice little protected lagoon to swim. Overall great location and had a good time. I would recommend.
