    Royal Kona - is simply one love. Lobby was great. We enjoyed sitting on the sunny balcony. 20 km away from Kona International airport. The early check-in process too.

    Very good

    The location is ideal, quiet... The equipment is optimal: everything you need to cook, snorkel fins, beach towels at your disposal etc... The swimming pool and patio are very pleasant with sunsets at the top.

    Carpet everywhere, not ideal compared to the sand you can bring back from the beach... The interior style is a bit old-fashioned

    Pitch with an ideal location to stay in Kona. The swimming pool is very good. The setting is quite exceptional. The staff is always available. Excellent!

    I didn't appreciate the breakfast and pay WIFI. Paid WIFI is from another time. parking is also paying.

    Perfect

    location of the hotel is perfect. It is located at the end of the shopping street in Kona. It is within walking distance of restaurants and shops. It is situated on the seafront with a beautiful view of the bay of Kona. pleasant swimming pool and lagoon. Spacious room, air-conditioned and comfortable room. hotel offers a luggage service, convenient when your plane takes off in the evening.

    The hotel looks a little old. The rooms haven't been refreshed in a long time... Everything is paying... parking ($12 per day), breakfast (at least $20 per person per day..) and even Wifi (we are in 2018 !!!). Every evening the same show was given in the hotel... a little noisy until 9pm...

    Clean, well located in a lively street.

    Too expensive, wifi and parking are extra. The fridge is the size of a mini bar. The room is large but not very furnished, it would seem less empty with 1 or 2 armchair(s).

    Great

    location of the hotel is ideal, sea view is beautiful, hotel is old-fashioned and, room had a strong smell of humidity and carpets need to be changed. Everything is quite faded in the rooms and corridors. On the other hand, lobby, bar and swimming pool remain interesting with a Hawaiian decor. Also, staff is very friendly.

    hotel doesn't seem to have been refreshed since the 1970s. smell of moisture in the room is disturbing and carpets are dirty.

    Noise: the fans and machinery in the air conditioning units on the terraces or those above the restaurant are very noisy even at night.
