    The units are outdated timeshare type rooms. Absolutely no amenities. Ocean view description is over exaggerated.

    The rooms seem to be outdated timeshares. Furniture is old and sagging. No amenities at “resort”. Nothing for kids to do. The pools are outdated as well. Bugs in the room. Description of ocean views are exaggerated. Views are best described as people’s backyard. Overpriced for the value.

    The view of the ocean (beautiful lava rocks, no beach or swimming) and nearby countryside was so beautiful. Biggest lanai we’ve ever had. Unit 610, a 2 bedroom deluxe unit really set the tone for our first trip to the Big Island. Beautiful garden on the bottom floor of resort, including waterfall. Our young adult kids loved exploring the rocks, the two pools and hot tub.

    Loved staying at the Royal Sea Cliff

    We just returned from the Royal Sea Cliff in Kona and would definitely stay there again! The room was clean and we had an ocean view. The grounds were lush with a waterfall running down the middle of the grounds. Two swimming pools right on the water. There isn't a beach, but we knew that going there. There are a few sand beaches nearby but a beautiful huge one north of Queens Market. We were too busy to worry about being on the beach! Royal Sea Cliff is near the heart of Kona so plenty of shopping and eating.

    Best Laid-back Condo in Kona

    We stayed in a quiet I bedroom condo on the ground floor, adjacent to the big, family pool. We could just walk out the lanai door and across the grass to access the pool, overlooking the shoreline. We've stayed in this resort at least four times, in different accommodations, and never have been disappointed. It's a quick drive into Kona town from here.

    A clean and cozy spot for people who want the convenience of home while on vacation

    This was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting the big island. 1. We wanted to prepare a lot of our own meals (thanks Hawaii Costco!) and the kitchen was excellent for this. It had everything that we needed. 2. We hike/run/swim every day and it was so nice to have full size laundry in the unit. That makes packing easier (lighter) because you don't need so many clothes when you can wash them every couple days. 3. Free onsite parking! 4. Short walk to Kona proper (about a mile). 5. Excellent spot for our morning runs. Ali'i drive doesn't have a separate running trail or sidewalk, but the bike lanes are great for running and it is definitely a running hot spot. From 6am, you will find so many people walking, running, and biking along the beautiful coast. The traffic moves slow enough that it feels quite safe. If you don't like running next to the road, there is a nearby 3mi dedicated path nearby that you can drive to with plenty of roadside parking. 6. Super clean condo unit with excellent air conditioning. Great porch for enjoying morning coffee. 7. We don't use the resort-style amenities at most places (pools, bars, onsite dining), so this was more our speed. The two pools are quite nice and we did enjoy reading on the pool deck and looking at the ocean.
