    We had a corner ocean view room which was a little dated but very spacious. Royal Kona is in an excellent location with great views from the pool, restaurant and bar areas, which are great spots to watch dolphins, turtles and sunsets. It's in walking distance to restaurants, shopping and water sports. It doesn't include free parking or wifi which is disappointing as all other places we stayed were free. This was a return visit.

    This is a great place to stay Don the beachcomber has beautiful views of sunsets, great Mai tais. Why the rooms are a little dated they are comfortable. Oceanfront ocean view give you privacy and the waves crashing against the rocks. we've been going to Royal Kona for close to 20 years but I want to give a special shout-out on this trip to ann who checked us in Marie who helped us with a problem in the room and Forest who took care of us at Don's Mai Tai bar appreciate all their help

    VERY nice and accommodating hotel.

    Overall, hotel was very nice. Lots of spacious parking, easy and fast check-in, to spacious and very nice rooms... We would return. Hotel was somewhat centrally located to Hilo's amenities, but not close enough to walk into the central city. Good location for exploring Hawaii's east and southeast coastline.

    We love the Royal Kona so much we keep coming back for more. The staff is so friendly and attentive. The hotel is perfect for us which is why we've stayed here so many times. We love to walk to the restaurants and shops that are so close by to this hotel. Ann is our favorite and she always welcomes us back. Mahalo!!

    Love staying here. Don the Beachcomber bar is our favorite in the whole world. It's about 10 yards from the ocean and you get a great view of sunset and Kailua every day. It's not the most glamorous resort as it is getting older, but the staff are friendly and keep it clean. What is so great about the place is that it is walking distance of downtown Kailua. I always tell people to stay here versus the resorts up north because there is such a variety of things to do nearby. Will stary here again next time we visit the Big Island.
