My family and I very much enjoyed our time at Kona Kai. The staff was very friendly, location was great, and so many activities on property that helped keep the kids busy when we returned from our adventures during the day. We will be back!

The resort is beautiful and staff is very friendly. The dining options are limited and the location is quite far from other restaurants and coffee shops.

Absolutely perfect in every way! This is the way hospitality should be done. A lovely place with professional staff and perfect amenities. They even upgraded us since we're here for charity work.

Okay but needs some staff training
Resort is okay but very busy with weddings and functions so customer service was poor. Price of parking is ridiculous and should be included for guests. Staff at check-in very rude and unhelpful. No in room dining even though it is advertised.

One Night Stay
We had a one night stay before going to a concert. We arrived a little early and our room was ready. We had our dog and that is the main reason we selected this resort. I wish our sliding glass door had a screen and that the pillows were softer, but those are minor concerns. We had dinner and lunch at the re so pet’s restaurant Vessel, and I have to give a shout out to the employees of the restaurant. They could not have been nicer!! Also, the bell man Christian, was very helpful offering to drive me in the golf cart , part of the way to the concert venue.
