One of the better experiences we’ve had with a resort. Friendly, attentive staff. Would definitely stay again. Great location, easy to walk to the several restaurants, stores, and beaches located near the resort. ????

It's Becoming Our Anniversary Destination

Mrl84 (Hilo, Hawaii) on Jul 03, 2022

We had a lovely time at the Royal Kona Resort. We were greeted by Leimomi at the front desk who quickly checked us in and we were gifted with a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Cynthia was our server for breakfast at Don the Beachcomber's Restaurant. We enjoyed the service and the scenery. The location was so great, we parked our car and walked to dinner and some exploration around the hotel and its vicinity. Very convenient location.

Spectacular stay on the Big Island.

Originally booked an ocean view room. When we arrived there were none, so they upgraded us to an ocean front room. The water was 20 feet off our patio. Beautiful. Great bar scene. Nice room. The only thing I wish could have been better…..our flight didn’t leave until 8 pm. I asked for a late check-out and only got until 12:30. Every other hotel I’ve stayed out has given a 3 pm late check-out. Other than that, it was a wonderful week at the resort.

Not the best

Y9984QZlukew on Jul 02, 2022

The view was spectacular from our room but for the price we paid was lacking in features you would consider basic at most resorts. There was a big wet patch of beer that had been spilt next to the bed the day we got into our room and the A/C had a horrible smell to it so we had to leave it off and the doors open for 90% of our trip. Staff were having pickets / protests out the front for better wages which left undertones of people being unhappy. Considering this was our honeymoon I’d probably look elsewhere next time.

The room was great, no complaints, a nice view, and the perpetual sound of ocean waves crashing on the rocky shore were excellent for relaxing and meditating. The food was excellent and the eating area was lovely, breezy, with friendly staff, and excellent view no matter where you sat. Be aware: There is a $25.00 per day parking fee AND a $25.95 per day resort fee. (Yes, these fees are for the guests.) Also, there is a small hill you must walk up to get to the parking area.
