Great stay! Absolutely perfect condo for 2 people. Well stocked, could use sharper knives. Comfortable bed, plenty of room. Very clean upon arrival. Great views of ocean, beautiful sunsets from the balcony. Great location, easy access to everything. Plenty of room at the pool and grill area for everyone.

The Kona Reef Resort is a wonderful resort. The location is prime (you are less than 5 minutes from historic Kailua-Kona). The resort is reasonably small and staff and guests are extremely friendly.

“A and F wings are ocean front away from the road. Grounds floors are less private as there is a public walk way in front.”
