Look for better

Trisha D on Jul 01, 2022

For the price, there is better out there. Outdated rooms, no microwave, fridge was broken. Beautiful view, but when you book through 3rd party there are a few extra fees that you won’t be prepared for. For the price you should have to pay for parking.

Diamond Resort Member: Bay Tower

Yv0nn3_18 on Jun 30, 2022

Great family resort. As a diamond member we were provided a microwave in the room, although it would’ve been better if there was a kitchenette like a stove. Amenities were provided as per usual-soap, shampoo, towels. The shower needs updating, the shower pressure was non existent, did it ruin the vacation-No but it definitely was not a 5 star stay. The room was somewhat updated but the bed was small- so maybe it was like a full/double bed vs a queen sized bed. The text concierge services could be improved. The text concierge was not as responsive and when I brought up the shower pressure I was asked to “see the front desk” which basically defeats the purpose of the text concierge. I stayed at the Hilton resort in Waikoloa and there is a stark difference in customer service and text concierge, so I guess you “do get what you pay for”. We didn’t have a choice but to stay in royal Kona though. The pool is small, there is a small lagoon that had some turtles. The resto bar had surprisingly good food and drinks. Parking was a little difficult as there were a lot of guests. The hotel is very close to downtown so that was definitely a plus. Overall 4/5.
