    Beautiful property, great amenities, and a reasonable price! Definitely worth checking out!!

    This is a gorgeous property at a reasonable price and my wife and I had a great time. The lagoon beach is perfect for laying out or grabbing your snorkel gear and going for a short swim. There’s plenty of fish, dolphins, and eels to keep you entertained. The on-site coffee shop is amazing too and the staff were always super helpful. We also did the luau experience here and had a great time. The food was fantastic and the dancing and show were a ton of fun. The location along the main street is perfect for going on a stroll and wandering through the shops and restaurants. The morning yoga classes were also fantastic (Shout out to Dandy!) and well worth pushing through the jet lag. We’ll definitely be back here again.

    Beautiful Hotel centrally located to everything!

    We booked this hotel through Costco‘s special package deal, which included complementary, breakfast buffet, and the resort fee, and the rental car. We booked our airfare separately on Southwest since it flew straight from Oakland to Kona. This hotel had mixed reviews but I think it’s one of the best places we’ve ever stayed! we booked two rooms, one ocean front and one ocean view and our ocean front room room 552 was spectacular! It overlooked the private sandy beach at the hotel has and you can also see the luau from here! It is so easy to join snorkeling tours from here, and there are so many restaurants very close by. Stella was very friendly when we checked in. The rooms are very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet is spectacular! Marie was so nice in the restaurant, and Comey made the best omelette! There are so many stores and amenities right in this hotel, including ABC store for all the things that you left at home! Make sure you go to the Island Breeze Luau, it is right outside the hotel And the Kona Style, snorkeling and manta rays night dive! This would be a great place to stay with families. We were here with our adult children but it’s great for people of all ages. I think we’re here at the best time they said, because all the kids are back in school so end of August and September are the best times to go. Also, it’s only about a 15 minute drive from the airport. It’s also so convenient that you can rent snorkeling equipment right on the beach and you get to use the equipment for free for an hour per day or just have to pay five dollars a day if you want to use equipment all day. You can also pay $20 for the week which we did because we want to take her equipment to other beaches. I highly recommend stayed at this hotel. We will definitely be coming back! Mahalo to all the staff for being so friendly and welcoming!
