The pool area has just been redone and is very nice. Location to downtown Kona is nice. Within walking distance to shopping and food but... More

Stayed here in May 2013. Nice resort located amidst lava grounds. Close to the ocean and our views from the second floor were amazing. Tennis courts on site, and only a few miles from downtown Kona and a snorkeling area.

First the grounds - Surf and Racquet Club. Beautiful grounds and depending which unit you rent (more on ours later), spectacular views. While we have not and will not play tennis, the courts are gorgeous. We have spent an afternoon poolside. Great pool, but they are getting ready to remodel the pool in August 2016. There is a peaceful private... More

We rented this unit for six people, staying for two weeks. The location is just as advertised, nice golf course view, bit of ocean visible in the distance. Its on a quiet corner, with a huge banyan tree beside the lanai, shaded in the early morning. KKSR is close to shopping centre, Keauhou Bay and has quick access to Mamalahoa... More

Unit 3-102 was so badly maintained there is not room to list all the problems. The owner did nothing to correct serious issues. This is a great complex that we have stayed at before and been very happy. NOT THIS UNIT!

Horrible place to stay!! The appliances (toaster, coffee pot, microwave, ice maker) all need to be replaced because they are old and dont work. There is mold in both bathrooms from obvious water damage (probably from the toilet that is not secured to the floor, or the shower that doesnt work consistently). They really need to repair the plumbing problems... More
