The place was very clean and so cute. The only thing I didn't like is you couldn't swim in pool at night after dusk. We will be tho.

Excellent location
Excellent location close to restaurants and supermarket. Friendly and efficient staff on reception. Very comfortable bed with lovely clean, white sheets. Queen room was overall quite basic and a little tired but very functional.

Really great except....
The Kona Kai has clean, nicely furnished rooms and a great pool. The bathroom was tiny but clean. Their contact with us prior to the stay was excellent. I was just disappointed that our room shared a thermostat with the front desk office. The temperature was just too cold for comfort and we didn't enjoy our stay as much as we would have. I would stay again but not in the Tahiti room.
