There were no wash cloths, no dish cloths, paper towels or toilet paper.We had to purchase our own. Upon arrival, I opened a bottle of club soda which fizzed onto the floor. The only thing available was a white bath towel....it came up dirty after wiping the floor. Saw several cockroaches, which I was NOT happy about. About the only...

The Kona Inn bar is located right on the shore line of Ali Drive. Views of Kailua bay and the pier give visitors a chance to see canoe clubs practicing their skills in the bay. The bar tenders are quick and professional at making the drinks of you choice. You will want to plan dinner and drinks and enjoy the...

They overcharged my credit card by hundreds of dollars and when we went to ask about it they said it was for hidden fees. I had to fight with my credit card company to get and money back. The staff is rude and unhelpful and Shane on them for stealing money from tourists.

While many of the units in this complex are individually owned, apparently RCI owns a number of them. Our studio unit was great - very clean, well appointed, comfy bed, nice tropical decorating. It's the very last unit, right over the street, but also just 30 metres from the shoreline and the continuous sound of surf was lovely. At some...

Did book it through Hotels.com. Nothing said on the website that these are private condos and not a hotel. There is no breakfast and no bar. We booked 4 nights and unfortunately all other hotels are fully booked at this time. There is no housekeeping and nobody changes the towels. The room was dirty when we checked in. Bloodstains on...

Mini fridge holds enough for one or two meals at a time. Wall Mart is 5 minutes away. These room are pretty close to the pool but on the opposite side from the ocean. Parking is limited. We always came in late at night, so never had a problem. Gas grills are by the]pool along with hot tub and tables...

AVOiD these 2 units, I shout through my virtual internet MEGAHORN!!! Unit # 140 smelled as if it had not been opened in years and some sort of mold was multiplying at a great rate. In addition, the Murphy bed was virtually inoperable for any mere mortal other than its manager Ellen. She admitted telephonically that it was in ill...

The first night at this facility was a total disaster. If I had to rate the facility after one night it would have been a 1 Star. The room has an AWFUL musty odor. The inner bathroom door between the toilet and sink area was broken. The patio door would not open more than six inches. A drinking glass was...

Just had a fantastic week stay at Kona Islander. Booked the same unit #326- the unit makes the difference and if you find a unit and host you like you will enjoy your stay. Units are perfect for 1 person or a couple. More than that in a unit might seem tight- they are studio style units with partial kitchens....
