We stayed at the Kona Tiki during the Ironman to watch my sister compete. The Managers, Jan and Mike were very hospitable and made us feel so at home for the entire stay - even standing out front with us to watch the race and cheering as other Kona Tiki Ironmen and women competed. Jan and Mike were also very accommodating towards our family (we have a 3 and 1yr old) and at no time did we feel unwelcome because of our kids (who were noisy at times). In fact, there was a real openness amongst guests which made for a friendly, personalised and relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are simple yet very clean and homely. Breakfast each morning was a delight. A simple breakie of bagels, toast, fruit, tea, coffee and juice but impeccably presented and overlooking the pool and beautiful ocean. All rooms are ocean facing. The sound of the waves crashing on the rocks can be a little loud for light sleepers but I'd rather that than traffic! My family stayed at the Royal Kona and, having visited their rooms, I was very pleased we had chosen the Kona Tiki. I will definitely book here again.
