    We loved the view from the room. The only thing that bothered us was the heavy music playing in a nearby restaurant. The room was very spacious with not much furniture. The chairs and table in the room were outdoor furniture. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the location of the resort!

    The hotel rooms were just okay and definitely need updating but the resort grounds were beautiful. The staff was friendly and nice and very helpful. If the rooms were a little nicer it would be a 5 star rating.

    This was our first time to this island. We went to the Royal Kona by timeshare exchange. These rooms were not what we were accustomed to as they did not have a kitchen. The rooms were cleaned and there was daily maid service which was nice. We had a great partial ocean view. Decor was a little dated but not terrible. The grounds were very well maintained.The pool by the ocean has spectacular views and you can lay out and listen to the waves. You are walking distance to great restaurants and bars. Almost every night you could find some live music near by. The only problem we had was that they did not have a hospitality room the day we checked out for those who had a red eye flight. We have been to Hawaii multiple times, and usually we end up on the red eye flight. It is nice to be able to lounge by the pool or ocean and have the chance to shower and change before you get on a long flight. Other places we have stayed always have a way to accommodate this. Other then that we had a great time. Thank you

    The Royal Kona Resort took care of everything my girlfriend and I wanted. From the bartenders to the front desk and the housekeeping staff, everyone helped to make our vacation a great time. Not to mention the perfect location and beautiful view. Everything in Kona is walkable from this spot, and you cannot get any closer to the water. Great time all around.

    Great location in Kailua-Kona

    The hotel is not 5 star, but it is clean, friendly, great parking area, and close to many stores and restaurants (all within a short walk). We live in East Hawaii but love to go to the West Side to rest, eat and drink at Outback, and relax watching the dolphins in Kailua Bay from the Hotel. I personally love the private lagoon for snorkeling and swimming. There are lots of tropical fish there and sometimes a Honu (green sea turtle) comes in during high tide.
