Sun, sand , food and Service all in one place
came over to the Kona side of the Island for two days to enjoy the sun and calmer ocean waves. The hotel was everything we had hope for and would highly recommend to others

Lovely stay
Beautiful hotel. Nice beach. Great pool. A rental car is a must to get around to see anything on the island. Would definitely stay here again. Staff friendly and helpful.

Mixed feelings
I will start with hawai'i is paradise, you have chosen the right destination. It is with mixed feelings I write this review as this hotel has the potential. The room was great, and the location/ beach is dreamy. The service is spotty, some areas of the hotel do great and others could not be worse. Valet guys are amazing, as well as staff at Brown's beach restaurant. On the other hand concierge, pool and beach, other restaurants staff did not even bother to acknowledge our precense. Beach loungers need an upgrade but I guess they trying to sell you the cabanas so making you as uncomfortable as possible to get your extra dollars. Extra costs all over the place, not sure why they not include the resort fee in room rate. The big island is a great place, will definitely go back, but not sure if I would stay here, for same price point you might be able to do better.
