The other review must be as outdated as the unit was supposed to have been.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.

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...

I booked a room through Outrigger. My husband and I received unit 304 when we checked in (the actual check in desk is off property and we did not know, so beware...) Once we came back and walked in our unit, I instantly started sneezing. The carpet, bedding and mainly everything was OLD, like decades old! The place was two...

2 bedroom Ocean Front Room, fully furnished with new kitchen and laundry appliances. There was two laundry baskets for dirty laundry, multiple extra pillows sheets and blankets. I can't say enough good stuff about it. There were multiple pools, some for the family and some for the adults only. The whole place was very clean and quiet. There was no...

3 couples stayed in a 3 bed 3 bath ocean front condo at Kanaloa. Everything was amazing! We were in the ocean front pool everyday from sunup to watching the sunset. The complex is very clean and quiet. We will definitely stay again!

We've been in the outtriger part (there's also a Caste&resorts part) The desk is not in the hotel but in the shopping center 5 min away.... Nice flats, with great facilities(real kitchen, laundry free wi fi...) looking dated but nicely maintained. Swimming pools and BBq avalaible. But look like a retirement house for third age. Everybody look at the window...

This is the third time we've stayed at this complex; last time was 5 years ago. We stayed in a 2BR/2Ba unit (3A) which had new floors and washer/dryer, but the rest of the unit needs serious updating. Very tired, worn out, faded and dated. Skimpy on the towels, but at least we could wash and reuse them. We stored...

This place was OK but really not outstanding in any way. Our unit was very tired and not particularly clean. Several things were broken. The location is good and there are shops very near by which is an advantage. We were a party of 3 families with kids, on day one we went to the Family Pool and within about...

Aloha, Kanaloa At Kona has a very diverse group of guest visiting our property. I have 3 kids myself and know that they often are just being kids and having a good time. The games restricted at the pools generally involve yelling and throwing of ball or other objects, these rules are for the comfort and safety of all our...

We are probably spoiled after staying at a more well known chain of condos, but nonetheless we were very disappointed. The condo was advertised as having a king, a queen and twin beds in a three bedroom unit, but it actually had one king and the rest twins...that were way too short for us. Our feet hung over the end....

Aloha, There are multiple rental agents with units at Kanaloa. I am confident that beds come in a standard size regardless of the company you rented from. Not all companies have the same standards. The Front Desk team at our Maintenance team are quick to respond, it is disappointing that we did not respond to your concern. Generally when there...

Stayed in Kanaloa for one week. Absolutely loved the places. We were so lucky to get one of the suites right in front of the ocean pool, with a fantastic view over the ocean and the sunset. The pools was great including small jacuzzi next to them. There is a good shopping mall close by, but like any other places...
