Gratisbus vor Ort und die Möglichkeit, im Nachbarhotel ein Auto zu mieten. Die Surfmöglichkeiten waren weiter weg
Das Kona Seaside bietet ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis bei ansonsten eher teueren Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten in Kona - oder überhaupt auf Hawaii. Die zentrale Lage war angenehm. Der Parkplatz ist mit 8 oder 9Doller pro Tag zu teuer. 10m vom Hotel entfernt stehen (gratis) öffentliche Parkplätze zur verfügung. Es ist natürlich eher "alt" und der Teppichboden in den Zimmern ist gewöhnungsbedürftig...aber wie gesagt die Leistung entspricht absolut dem Preis.
Zimmer war sehr schön Zu laut im Bereich der Lobby abends
Die Dusche Der Empfang in der Rezeption. Man hat die Buchugn nicht gefunden und ist dann auch noch unverschämt geworden. Die Zimmer waren in "Tower" und sehr laut wegen Verkehrslärm und eigener Lärmerzeugung (Maschinen, Generator U.S.W.).
Sehr angenehme Atmosphäre an der Rezeption eines Hotels der angeblich einzigen familiengeführten Hotelkette in Hawaii. Unkompliziert und hilfsbereit, gut organisiert und trotzdem unaufdringlich. Ein angenehmes Haus.Gutes Zimmer (allerdings höchste Kategorie) mit Meerblick und zweckmäßiger Ausstattung. Die Haptik der Kissen war eigenartig, zu lasch. Eigenes Kissen half.
Saubere Unterkunft mit Blick auf den pazifischen Ozean. Guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge u Shopping Nicht besonders ruhig, da an der Strasse.
Preiswertes Hotel, zentral gelegen, freundlicher Service, ordentlicher Allgeeminzustand Durch die zentrale Lage und die umgebenden Straßen recht lärmig (Tower), die Gartenzimmer sind mit Sicherheit ruhiger.
I loved the architecture of this place and the staff was very accommodating in making sure we had a great view and a high floor. The waves were crashing below the lanai and made for a great sleep! And the view can't be beat! The restaurant/Mai tai bar is a hopping place (at least when we were there) and had great food and an amazing selection of tropical drinks to get you in the mood for the islands! It seems to be an older hotel and is a little dated and worn, decor-wise, but the bed was comfy enough. Parking is a little confusing and costs10$/day as does wireless internet, but there isn't a resort fee. My att signal was nonexistent in the room but fine everywhere else.
Public spaces are great, loved the luau The room was disappointing
The view was amazing. Right in town... walk to the restaurants- no DUI after :) Staff is friendly. Huge wraparound lanai on my corner unit allowed the sound of the waves to permeate the room all night. I stayed on the lower level bay side. In the middle of the night some homeless people came and stole my lanai furniture. The bed was terribly lumpy and the furnishings were all dated. Room needs to be remodeled. But if they did this, I'm sure the price would be easily 25-50% more than I paid as the rest of the experience was very good. But seriously... Royal Kona, change the mattresses..
Lovely location and great place to sit out and enjoy the view. Check in was very late due to delayed flight and woman was really warm and welcoming and helpful at 200am. Couple of the housekeepers were also really friendly and welcoming. Didn't have the buffet breakfast but it looked pretty good value for $20 and the coffee was good. Rooms are really grimy, halways are filthy, daytime staff could give a stuff whether you are enjoying your stay or not. Won't stay there again, it is just a printing press for some outfit that does the bare minimum in upkeep and staff hiring.
The view was "pretty" good, it is kind of spoiled by the shabby exterior of the building however. The room looked like it was last remodeled in the 70s. Old spring mattress. The A/C dripped on the bed. There is no real beach just the little cove/lagoon.
Dirty and outdated. Charged extra for wifi and parking and had mold in shower.
The grounds and location are excellent. The staff can be a bit ambivalent. There is a huge difference in the quality of the rooms in the individual towers. The beds are just okay. This is NOT the Royal Lahaina
Love the location, view, 6am coffee at Huggos, good bar, nice pool, parking for guests. Beds were very comfortable. Nice to have a fridge. Like the heavy, dark doors for sleeping. Bathroom in particular was dingy, toilet kept "refilling" randomly, plug in the shower was broken.
Great view and cozy rooms. Shower was way to small you couldn't turn around with out being entangled in the cold shower curtain.
Felt like a fabulous vacation because of the Royal Kona Hotel.
Water leaks from above coakroaches in my first room, coachroaches leaping out at you from the main bar. You get to see and here the entertainment from your room every night even if you don't want to
saw a naked man
Loved the rooms, location, the pool...except everytime we ate there we only saw our waitress once. Both times we had to get up and ask anyone how to pay so we could leave. I loved staying there, I just don't think I'd eat or drink at their facilities due to slowwwwwe services.
charged me 250 fee for smoking on balcony when checked out，but they didn't warn me at all when I checked in.
My wife and I arrived at Kona around 9pm local time and the Courtyard was a convenient location in the direction we were going. We were not at the hotel long enough to fully appreciate. It was comfortable and was our first experience of Hawaii in the daylight. How could that be anything but great. If we had stayed longer, the balcony view was of the roof and other balconies. You could strain your neck to see water.
Location was good; but ocean view was a real disappointment. I booked the location to attend a luau. It was a disappointment for the cost.
we made reservation for a bed room with living room online. when we checked in, there was no living room. the staff at front desk insisted that the small table and a chair one foot away from bed was the living room. what a rip off.
Super friendly staff. Very clean room. Great housekeeping staff. Comfy beds. Easy access to beach and pool. Busy parking on luau nights (Sunday's/Tuesday's)
It was clean, the staff was extreme helpful and warm. Nice reception. Hotel looked very nice Bed was a very uncomfortable. Both myself and wife woke up very sore. i could feel all the springs, not a comfortable experience.
Close to everything
Valet was professional and an excellent greeter as were the folks at the front desk The small beach area was under construction and did not present the hotel in a favorable way.
Paid $300 for an "ocean front" room, which turned out to be facing the ocean but on the 2nd floor, partially blocked by a tree and by the roof of the first floor. The shower handles, are placed on the side of the shower so that if you're not mindful of where the shower head is pointed, turning the shower on will get you soaked. At least in room 201, there was no tub, which was disappointing. Save your money and unless they guarantee you a spectacular view of the ocean, just pay for a regular room.
We arrived in Kona in the evening, having traveled for 18 hours. This was a perfectly good place to stay for the night before taking off for our circumnavigation of the Island. Clean, comfortable, convenient. Breakfast was $22.95 a person - but there is a IHOP just up the street that suited us better.
The windows don't block the light very well
Absolutely magical place. One of the best resorts I have visited in a long time. As a gay couple I would highly recommend it. The service was top notch and all the rooms faced the ocean. It's best to stay at the resort and experience all the services and restaurants to get the full luxury experience. We got upgraded to an ocean front room and enjoyed the stay so much we defiantly will be coming back. The prices are very high to stay at this resort and I searched the Internet for the best rates and honestly found the best prices on Kayak.com
Das Personal war freundlich, wir haben spät eingecheckt und so nur eine Rezeptionistin auf. Sauber genug. Die Zimmer sind schon etwas älter. Die Betten waren sehr federnd, wir hatten nicht genügend Handtücher. Wir waren drei Personen im Zimmer, aber nur zwei Sets Handtücher. Wir mussten an der Rezeption nach mehr fragen. Mein Mann und ich teilten uns ein Set.
