We stayed in a two bedroom unit which was quiet, clean, comfortable with well-stocked kitchen and large living areas and a very private balcony. The reception office isn't onsite and we had a late check in due to a flight delay. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the unit was hard to locate as they are not numbered consecutively,...

Just finished a month's stay at this resort, and we highly recommend it. The location is great for playing golf at Kona Country Club with resort discount, nearby grocery store,drug store, restaurants, movie theater, post office and boutiques. Some people walk there. Marina is also nearby for all water activities & tours. There are beautiful gardens throughout; some units are...

Beautiful place, two bedrooms with a huge loft, three bathrooms, comfortable, clean, safe. Two nice balconies. Close to beautiful beaches (Kahaluu - good snorkelling, Magic Sands- good for playing in the waves along turtles) very good location. Will recommend to friends.

I stayed at the property march 5th through March 9th and had to cut my stay one night short due to the circumstances I will describe below.

Pros: great location near ocean and bay harbor and large shopping center, oceanside pool and hot tub, very clean and spacious 2BR unit (3009) with washer and dryer. Cons: no beach access from the complex (pretty common issue on this island due to lava), at check in we were told A/C would incur additional fee of $25/day. We didn't need...

Aloha, There are several companies renting units at Kanaloa. Each company has different procedures and charges. The charge for A/C is a regular and common charge for most rentals at Kanaloa. We monitor and treat our spas 7 days a week as a good business practice and as required by the state of Hawaii. Most rental companies provide adequate supplies,...

This is a lovely property with multiples swimming pools, great views over the ocean and golf course and spacious accommodation. We had 3 balconies on our 2 bedroom unit, lots of kitchen and living room space and it was bright and airy. I'd go back again or recommend it to friends. It's on the low key end of Kona away...

Aloha, Kanaloa At Kona consists of 37 buildings with 4 to 6 units in each building. Because of this Polynesian layout design the buildings have only stairs. This can be challenging for some guest, but remember the property has 74 ground floor units, each with only three steps to the front door. The properties front hours of operation are 8am...

The staff was completely rude at every interaction. We tried to check in and they charged us a separate tax and made us wait thirty minutes before we could go to our condo despite our check-in time was hours earlier. The residents who live here were rude at the pool and even asked if we were trespassing at one point....

Aloha, I am disappointed at your recent experience when checking in and checking out; guest satisfaction is one of our most important goals. I will speak to my team about this. Overall on the property we have only 8 out of 166 units with full time residents. Our security team is primarily responsible for monitoring the property and the pools...

Enjoyable location away from the hubbub of the Kailua-Kona area. Pleasant vistas, nice amenities (3 pools, one for adults only, tennis courts, family activities) and quiet streets. A 10 minute walk to the Keauhou Bay pier where boat excursions, outriggers, kayaks and many other water activities begin.

The other review must be as outdated as the unit was supposed to have been. This place is beautiful and was really a small paradise. Very reasonably priced when considering the full bathrooms, soaking tubs and multiple large beds. We would definitely return to this updated and stunning unit.
