We stayed in a corner balcony room. The stay was through Diamond Timeshare resorts. The view was breath-taking. When the tide comes in, it actually gets loud but we loved it. There was a wedding held outside of our room which was cool because we were able to watch the luau show. (the furniture is crappy though) I used the...

Very nice rooms, beautiful grounds and view. The ocean front views on the ground floor of the north most tower were awesome. Unreal sunsets every night. If you want a king bed do your best to reserve it in advance. We had to switch rooms. There were some other issues with the room but management was very helpful in rectifying...

Tired hotel badly in need of an overhaul. Way over priced for what you get. The entire hotel is badly worn from reception to lifts to rooms. We booked deluxe king with sea view and on arrival we were put into their annex tower which was deplorable. Again very run down and the smell in the room of damp, and...

The check in folks are great. The site is lovely and pool quite pleasant. There is not hot tub that we could find, and the food is your basic hotel food. Drinks on the pricey side. But when you are relaxing by the pool and the sun is setting, you dont mind paying a little more for an excellence Pina...

This hotel needs renovation very badly. It is very outdated from towels to bedspreads to drapes and carpet. The building needs painting, grounds were acceptable. Spa Services door was very dirty so we changed our minds about massages. Breakfast bar was cold and tasteless. Also asking 3 prices for the food at 21.00 each! Buyer Beware!! We had to change...

I believe this was our 9th visit to the Royal Kona so clearly we love it. The location is ideal, close to shops and restaurants. The grounds are beautiful with a nice pool and private lagoon. It is ocean front so there is a beautiful sunset most nights. Can't say enough about how much we love it we will be...

We returned the this property where we honeymooned all those years ago when it was the Kona Hilton. We love to old Hawaii vibe, the close proximity to town. And the fabulous views. The lagoon, where turtles and colorful fish may be spotted, is relaxing. We paid to have the buffet breakfast included because we love to set by the...

Location, location, location is what this resort is all about. That said, the hotel is getting old. Our room is desperate for a remodel. Stains on carpet & dirty. Poor lighting in the bathroom. Dresser drawers stuck. $9.95/day for internet. $12/day parking. No room service (not that we needed it, but FYI.) Small pool right next to the bar. Bed...

The Royal Kona Resort is a very nice resort. It is centrally located by the main shopping area of town. It is right on the beach for great sun set pictures. The resort has a very nice restaurant and a nice bare that also serves very good food. The rooms and staff are very nice.

The Royal Kona is right on the shore. If you book an oceanfront room you will have a balcony and view of the sea and you can hear the waves crashing at night. The rooms are a bit tired but there is no need to stay in the room with all the activities around Kona. If you are present for...
