We stayed in this hotel for two nights. It's on the waterfront in the commercial area of downtown Kona village and has a tiny man made beach overlooking the docks and sea wall but it's not a beach hotel. Large convention facilities, average rooms, walking distance to all the shops, bars, and restaurants in Kona village, 10 minutes from the...

The facility is wonderful, the rooms were very comfortable, the staff was super and the location could not be beat in our opinion. The onsite restaurants were a bit pricey, the pool grill was decently priced for Hawaii, and the food was pretty tasty. The grounds were very nice, pool was very good and the onsite beach was great, some...

King Kam, as the locals call it, is a great vacation spot. Very clean, walking distance to great little shops-restaurants, affordable, attentive staff, not too crowded. Awesome breakfast buffet!!! Get the rate that includes breakfast.

If you are visiting the Island of Hawai'i to see the island rather than a beach vacation, this is an ideal hotel. It is right in the town of Kona on historical land with major sites walking distance, and several very good and reasonable restaurants nearby. The staff are very helpful, but operate at a Hawaiian pace rather than a...

Stayed a week at King Kams for our first time on the Big Island.

Nice hotel with great location. Only sand beach on Alii drive area. Poolside bar is nice. Nice restaurant also. ABC store at the hotel. This hotel kind of serves as a communal area for local events.

Found this hotel to be a great base to explore the West side of the big island. Great location in the middle of Kailua Kona with waterfront access - I wouldn't say it is a beautiful beach but at least you can get in the sea! Great for strolling to Kailua-Kona's bars and restaurants and not worrying about driving back....
