A clean and cozy spot for people who want the convenience of home while on vacation

Mark W on Apr 05, 2024

This was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting the big island. 1. We wanted to prepare a lot of our own meals (thanks Hawaii Costco!) and the kitchen was excellent for this. It had everything that we needed. 2. We hike/run/swim every day and it was so nice to have full size laundry in the unit. That makes packing easier (lighter) because you don't need so many clothes when you can wash them every couple days. 3. Free onsite parking! 4. Short walk to Kona proper (about a mile). 5. Excellent spot for our morning runs. Ali'i drive doesn't have a separate running trail or sidewalk, but the bike lanes are great for running and it is definitely a running hot spot. From 6am, you will find so many people walking, running, and biking along the beautiful coast. The traffic moves slow enough that it feels quite safe. If you don't like running next to the road, there is a nearby 3mi dedicated path nearby that you can drive to with plenty of roadside parking. 6. Super clean condo unit with excellent air conditioning. Great porch for enjoying morning coffee. 7. We don't use the resort-style amenities at most places (pools, bars, onsite dining), so this was more our speed. The two pools are quite nice and we did enjoy reading on the pool deck and looking at the ocean.

mediocre condo

CM385 (Hazel Dell, Washington) on Nov 13, 2023

Our room was a private owned condo. It was in a great location and had a delightful view. We had breakfast listening to birds every morning. The primary bedroom had poorly executed repairs from water damage. The toaster didn't work and required 2 days and multiple phone calls to get fixed. The screens fell off the patio doors if they weren't opened very gently. All in all it was ok and I would probably stay at the same location just a different condo next time.

Great Place to Stay

ToSquareBob1 (Kitchener, Canada) on Oct 30, 2023

We spent a week here with another couple in different suites. We wanted something on the ocean with a full kitchen and Royal Sea Cliff did not disappoint. First off, location is great. Easy to find, right on the ocean and a short 15 - 20 minute to all the shops and restaurants in Kona. There is also a small grocery - liquor store a 5 minute walk down the road. As others have mentioned, there is no sandy beach on the property but seeing the waves break off the lava rock shore is entertainment on its own. The grounds are meticulously maintained. It seemed the crew were cutting grass, cleaning up fallen leaves and pruning the plants pretty much daily. The common areas of the complex, outdoor halls, lobby area and both pools were always spotless as well. There was always lots of (free) parking as well. We had an ocean view suite which was clean, spacious and had two balconies. The furniture was dated (as others have mentioned) but everything worked, was well kept and comfortable. Something happened with our friends reservation so they were upgraded to an ocean front suite: what a treat! Spectacular views, sunsets and the sound of the waves crashing the shore was amazing. Lastly, every staff member we encountered was very friendly and the concierge was also helpful. If back on the big island, I would definitely consider staying here again.

Lovely comfortable stay

Kimberly B on Oct 07, 2023

Good view and close to everything. The furniture is outdated but very comfy. We had everything we needed in the condo including beach chairs and very cozy bed. The front desk staff is great to interact with as well. We went hiking, visiting farms, and several other activities during our stay; coming back to the condo felt homey. No surprise fees and charges that we experienced at other locations. We’d definitely return.

Beautiful Sunsets Every Night

susanpV909RI (Otsego, Michigan) on Jul 13, 2023

Absolutely loved our one bedroom ocean front condo. The large lanai was perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets and enjoying a quiet breakfast while gazing at the ocean. If I were to change anything, the mattress on the king size bed needs to be replaced and did cause achy backs for both of us. Otherwise the condo, complex and staff were all great and the location was a perfect distance to be out of the congested tourist area, but still only about a 4 minute drive away.
