We vacationed here for 4 days, 3 nights. It was perfect - I wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed in a two-bedroom, 2 bath condo overlooking the ocean. The first thing I did when we returned from our daily excursions was open the patio doors so we could listen to the beautiful, relaxing sound of the surf. The last evening and morning we were there, I convinced my family to stay put; I just wanted to stay at the hotel, relax together and enjoy our surroundings. We barbequed on the gas grill by the pool ,ate dinner by the ocean, played Monopoly in our room, and had a wonderful time.
Our rooms were nicely decorated and were kept very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all of our own meals if we wanted to. The unit also had a washer and dryer complete with laundry detergent.
The hotel is in a convenient location to stores, but far enough away from the north end of Alili Dr. where it's noisier and there's lots of activity. It's fun to visit the shops there, but it's nice to be able to get away from the hustle-bustle of shopping, restaurants, and traffic.
Our pillows were a little flat, but that could just be my preference. Also, because the master bedroom is separated from the kitchen/living area only by slotted sliding doors, it's easy to hear early risers in the kitchen. That's my only complaint and why I rated sleep quality as a 4.
Overall, Kona by the Sea is GREAT place to stay. I would love to go back for several weeks!!!
