Great location

Posted Nov 12, 2016
Pros: It's an older resort but they are trying to keep it up with fresh paint and nice landscaping. Easy walk into the town for happy hours and dinner, so could drink and NOT drive.
Cons: It's an older resort. Cushions on chairs on the lanai need replacing, buy new mattresses instead of adding cushions. (but the bed was comfy) In general, buy new silverware, matching glasses, etc in bulk and put them in all rooms. But, everything was ok and had extras like beach equipment and coolers.

Tres bien, très propre et tres bien equipe. Salle de bain un peu vieillot, mais propre. Aucun menage au cours du séjours. Balcon avec vue sur la mer exceptionnel.

First time near ocean on Hawaii

Posted Jul 25, 2016 on Hotels
This was a very nice condo that we stayed in. Staff was friendly and amenities were nice. Do be careful of where you try to check in. There are several offices on site renting out the condos. When we arrived the main office was closed for lunch so we went to Costco and returned about 90 minutes later. Desk lady was gone again and didn’t return for about 20 minutes. She then rudely told us that we need to go to a different office. Paperwork did not say anything relating to this so do not be afraid to check the timeshare office. Once in there, everything was amazing. They staff was very friendly and accommodating. The public beach next door is dangerous and not sandy. The very first day my buddy stepped on a sea urchin and had many spines in his foot which put a damper on the trip. Be sure to use caution or bring a thick soled water shoe. Great pool and grill area and super nice condo with porch/balcony.

Hot room in a great-location condo showing its age

Posted Jun 24, 2016
Pros: location, patio was spectacular, spacious living room area, they let us check in a little early
Cons: Bathroom needs a face-lift, new towels and sheets, new mattress on the bed, AC in the bedroom, upgrade/refresh cooking/flatware
Location: Not in on the strip but a short walk to the central Kona area restaurants, bars, etc. Beach nearby with rough serf for boogie-boarding.
We booked this because it was reasonably priced, near town, and had beach-front rooms. The condo was sort of shared between residents, time-share rentals, and hotel rentals. The unit we had was definitely showing its age: extremely soft and hard to sleep on mattress, really thin towels and sheets, sliding patio door that didn't lock. The worst part was the bedroom in the back didn't have an AC and was too far from the living room's AC or the trade breezes to keep cool. There was a thermometer in the room and it was regularly 80+ degrees which is fine for us in the day but not while sleeping. The condo staff was mostly nice. We didn't utilize the cleaning staff because the brochure was unclear whether we'd be charged an additional amount per day for this service. Internet was also an extra charge (charge for internet what century is this?). Long story short - we probably wouldn't stay here again (certainly not for a special occasion like a honeymoon) but if you're looking for a good value hotel that is nearby the town with a nice oceanfront patio, this might suffice.

Ocean view apartment

Posted Dec 17, 2015 on Wotif
Well equipped, fresh and clean, contemporary styling. Very comfortable. We were delighted with it. Fitted my family of 4 comfortably. The sofa bed was large and very comfortable. Looked new. Great location, very short walk to the shops and restaurants.

Where to Check in

Several Different Management companies have offices in the Condo Complex. Signage to find the right Management Company, or any one, is Very Poor

Close to amenities and restaurants.

Posted Sep 10, 2015
Pros: Nice spacious room. After many "standard" hotels nice to have a separate lounge and bed. Short stroll to shops/restaurants.
Cons: I don't know if it is even possible, but cool the pool down. The pool felt like a bath. Doubly frustrating with no calm/kid friendly beaches closeby.
Location: Nicely located on the edge of Kailua-Kona. Easy stroll out to get meals or have a wander in town.
Nice spot. We got some pretty crazy weather so we probably didn't get out as much in the area as we'd have liked. Great to wander out by the shoreline and watch just sealife in the little rock pools. Convenient to wander out and get meals (if you don't want to take a car out constantly)
