    Dated Buildings -- Great Staff

    The Royal Kona is very dated and needs a serious facelift. We were extremely disappointed that the restaurant is NOT OPEN on luau evenings, which forces guests to either leave the resort of purchase bar food. The staff is great and go above and beyond.

    Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff. No need to have a car to explore Kona from here, this location is walkable to downtown. Don The Beachcombers is right out on the lava rocks - feel the ocean spray while trying all the types of Tiki drinks!

    The hotel is definitely in need of some TLC but location won our four stars and staff was friendly and helpful. The views are good, the seaside lagoon is a plus. Good parking. No umbrellas at the pool.

    Our room was very clean, staff were very helpful. We had a wonderful view from our lanai. The luau was wonderful. We were within walking distance of the shopping district. We happened to be there the day that several blocks were closed to cars and local vendors set up areas to sell their waters.

    We got the Kamaaina rate which was great, first time staying at this hotel. Much more than I expected and for the price it was very reasonable. Nice pools and the room had a great ocean view. The room has everything you need and is near a lot of restaurants and different places. I would stay again next time we are back on the big island. And free parking for kamaaina too is a plus!
