Had 2 rooms here for couple nights. it is not a 4-5 star on a nice beach but the hotel has good location if you need to stay in near the town, coffee shops, etc. Store is connected to hotel so it is very convenient. Pool and outlets were shut down but hotel provided those accommodations at neighboring establishments (used pool at Pacific 19 across the street) Parking situation is nice and easy. Check in was great, got into my 2 rooms a little early and they were near to each other. Hihona at the front desk was awesome.

A little noisy for us. We were on the side of the hotel that had the pool and bar between the buildings. BUT the location was perfect. Also I had great snorkeling right off the beach. Great location to walk and gets meals offsite. Good restaurants nearby.

This hotel is in a great location, as it’s by the beach and the strip with shops and restaurants. Ululani shave ice is also located in the hotel, which is great for the hot days. The gym is spacious with moderately new equipment. A family friend pool that’s sizeable is offered as well. Room was basic and clean, albeit a bit dated.

For the amount of money (room as well as buffet breakfast) it was EXORBITANTLY overpriced and service was awful. 30.00 for buffet breakfast and only 2 egg offerings and only bacon as meat was offered. Salt and pepper shakers were not filled. No screens on window so birds flew into dining area and nibbled at the food while you stepped away from your table. I was first to enter breakfast the morning and it was evident no one had swept the dining room floor after restaurant had closed night before. The smaller vessel on which my coffee cream was delivered had not been washed (it was was disgusting) Again, given hotel name. Marriott, and the nightly price, room had poor bathroom lighting, no toiletries other than soap. Very. Very disappointing. Would not recommend .

We had the most fabulous time at this king Kamehameha hotel. We did not want to leave, the hospitality was out of this world. We were treated special and spoiled so much that we felt very important to every employee. From the cleaning crew, the breakfast staff and the front desk we felt taken care of. Genevieve, Lana and Ned from the breakfast staff were very pleasant to see every morning. Ned was great and gave us great tips for exploring the island. Steve at the parking gate also was helpful and friendly. Hihona at the front desk had the best hospitality, she was kind and caring. She went out her way with our needs. We will go back! We highly recommend to all who visit Kona Island to stay at King Kamehameha. This is without a doubt the best place in Kona.

The hotel is situated in an exceptional location. Directly across the street lies downtown Kailua Kona, an area renowned for its abundance of quality dining options. The accommodations, while clean, are notably compact, akin to the spatial constraints one might encounter aboard a cruise ship. The range of amenities provided by the hotel is somewhat restricted, which calls into question the justification for the substantial resort fee charged. However, it is important to acknowledge the commendable service provided by the staff, all of whom I found to be exceedingly friendly and accommodating. This establishment can be accurately described as a pleasant three-star hotel benefiting from a prime location, though it does not meet the criteria typically associated with a luxurious resort hotel.

I was having an ocean room with two double beds and checked in at 5:30.After I came back from dinner at 9 pm and started jumping into one bed, my legs are feeling wet in the quilt. I tried to call the housekeeping but nobody answer. The front desk sent someone to observe what kind of liquid it is. They quickly found out it is URINE on the bed!!!!!!!which is so gross. I quickly ran to take the shower again. The cleanliness is terrible and I don’t think they actually change everything before the new guest came.

This hotel is in a good spot, close to restaurants and shopping. The beach and pool are very small making it hard to find a place to relax. We paid for an ocean view room but you have to look over a ton of roof top to see the ocean. Overall I would probably look for a different place next time we are here.

More of a 2 star hotel experience than a resort. Way overpriced with lots of extra add ons as well. One can get a true resort experience at a lower or the ssme price in wiakoloa just 30 min north. Pictures are not how the place really looks. Definitely, you do not get what you pay for here.

We just arrived today and we are off to a very bad start. Upon arrival the guy in the baggage area “you don’t have that much stuff so you?” And did not move from his perch. We had three giant suitcases. I unloaded them myself as I could not possibly tip the guy after his greeting. He made no effort to help at all. He should not have that job if he is not going to do anything. There is no valet parking so he has nothing to do but bags There is no valet parking here but there is instead open air parking lot for $31/day. I would happily pay more for valet - just offer it as a service. We were given a sheet of paper to put in the dash indicating we paid the $31/day. Interestingly enough only about half the cars had some sheets similar suggesting compliance is low. We reserved two connecting rooms paying a fair amount extra for that privilege. We arrived and not only were the rooms not connecting they were on different levels away from each orhwr. After about 20-25 minutes we got connecting rooms but o my after we had to get a second person to make the change. Since the restaurants close at 9 we had to scramble after the lengthy check in just o not get shut out By the way the baggage guy never offer us a cart either The WiFi in the room does not work either I am a Diamond platinum or something like that - so we were offered a sift - continental breakfast for 2 people - we had a party of four or 1,000 bonus points. How cheap can they be - don’t even mention the continental breakfast for only 2 people if we have four people in our party After dinner we bought 4 drinks, three OTC d Cold medicines for $75.02 I hope it improves as the arrival day has been an experience of a hotel that should cost less than half what we are paying
