Delray Beach, Florida45 contributions5 helpful votes
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Kona Kai Resort. From start to finish it was absolutely wonderful. Kathyrn was there to check me in and give me a tour. She is so welcoming and her recommendations for restaurants worked out great for me. I stayed in the Breadfruit room with an ocean front view. It is spacious and clean, the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is very nice. It was really great to have a living area, kitchen, outside grill, and hammock as well. The view of the ocean from the room and the dock is beautiful. I really enjoyed the hammocks, plants and wildlife around the resort. The pool, hot tub, kayaks, paddle-boards, tennis courts, and scenery made it feel unnecessary to leave. I love it! Kona Kai is a wonderful, relaxing, tropical paradise!

The staff was unbelievably incredible. They went well above and beyond expectations. Whether receiving service in the manner of the Ritz Carlton's or giving great advice on food and adventures, this place was a joy. The extras here are not found in many places I have experienced these days. Beautiful grounds and great place to watch the sunset.

This is a lovely small waterfront resort. Beautifully kept grounds and the rooms were spotless. We were upgrade to a suite which had a full kitchen. There are multiple seating areas to enjoy as well as paddle boards and kayaks. Katherine is always available and helpful. She even lent me some agave to make mojitos. Highly recommend!

She secured reservations at two excellent restaurants and served as a wealth of information for other activities. We highly recommend staying a the Kona Kai Resort!!!!!!!!!
