Overall we had a great time but left the Kona Coast Resort unsatisfied. The employees did try hard and the grounds are beautiful but this is an older complex. Issue #1 - There were a lot of cockroaches and centipedes in the room we stayed in. It seemed like they might have been coming in through the dryer vent. The front desk did offer to spray around the unit when we were out. Issue #2 - They were renovating the units next door to us. I understands units need to be updated and our unit fit into that category but no one told us or gave us anything to offset the inconvenience. Thankfully we were out most of the day and this really didn't bother us but should been known that the resort will need to do some more updates to freshen up the place. Issue #3 - I didn't see on any of the reviews but this resort doesn't have direct beach access or even ocean front access. Sure there are some great views by the pool across the golf course but if you want to watch the sunset you have to walk illegally across the golf course. Issue #4 - The floors and the bathrooms didn't feel very clean. Again this may just be because we were in an older unit that needed to be updated but for the most part it felt very dirty. Issue # 5 - the dishwasher was washing machine were very old and extremely noisy to use. The dishwasher didn't seem to clean the dishes well and we ended up hand washing everything. In the end we did still had a great trip and the staff here are doing the best with what they have.

Kona Coast Resort was AWESOME! Check in was easy and we were able to park just steps from our unit. Once we got inside, the unit was a good size and there were plenty of amenities. The pool was great and there seemed to be just enough chairs and space for all that wanted to enjoy. If (when) we return to the Big Island, this is where we will be staying!

The accommodations and amenities were very good and the staff was very helpful. We enjoyed a nice ocean view to watch the sunsets. The resort is convenient to Kona, the coffee plantations and Captain Cooks. The resort also offered grills and a quiet pool convenient to our unit.

This well-situated resort south of Kona is large, and has good views of the ocean. While a touch dark, the balcony was wonderful, and I was happy to spend time in the unit when the weather was dark. Oddly, the front door was so heavy and tight it took all the strength to open it. Air conditioning is optional, so that could be a consideration in the summer. A fairly long drive to the Volcanoes Park, but otherwise it was a great stay near a local shopping mall for groceries and a few restaurants. A short drive into Kona.

Arrived too late in the day to get another room .air conditioning did not work therefore room musty. Dirty shower and sinks . Filthy carpets. Did not even dare unpack. After a long day of travel this place was a tremendous disappointment.
