We spent 14 days at the Kona Tiki, and wish we could have stayed longer. Wonderful location -- right on the ocean. Great couple that manages the facility (Michelle & Gary). They made the stay there just perfect. Nice continental breakfast with wonderful Kona coffee. We were on the 1st floor and enjoyed the view and the waves crashing on the shore. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to have some ear plugs just to be safe. Te pool was perfect and the rooms were exactly as advertised -- clean, and just what you need in Hawaii. We did not miss the TV or the telephone. We had a kitchenette, and prepared our dinners in our apartment. That really saved us some money. The hotel offers coolers, some snorkeling gear, maps, and ICE! You will need a car to visit all the places on the island, but you can walk to town from the hotel in about 15 minutes -- a nice walk.
