Couples getaway
Overall we had a good experience. The hotel rooms are a little dated but comfortable. Outdoor furniture though was not very comfortable. We really didn’t spend much time at the property since we toured and traveled the island daily. The one night we decided to come down to the bar we sat and waited for 15 minutes and no one came to serve us. We got up and left. That being said it would not prevent me from coming back.

Just what the doctor ordered.
The Aloha spirit is alive and well at the Royal Kona Resort! Mahalo for making our stay so enjoyable! It was exactly what we were hoping for and more!

4/10 Fair

Beautiful spot but too expensive
Hotel is in the perfect location. It is old and outdated. Paint and new decor is not enough to say it has been renovated. The bathroom shower was in terrible condition. The price per night is far too high for this hotel. Adding a resort fee for little to no amenities is unfair.
