For our cheap vacation it was exactly what we expected. Not necessarily exceptional, but we were at the sites and ocean most of the time anyways. I checked online again and the "Outrigger" resort was cheaper, so its pretty much luck. We were kinda unlucky because "Outrigger" looks so beautiful and has an oceanfront pool, (after a long day it was nice to sit in the hot tub but the view from the tub is only other condos at Castle Kona). But don't get me wrong, the condo is just normal..not bad, not good. As for the pests, we asked for a 3rd floor and that worked excellent, we only saw ants once when we left something out on the counter all day and the very rare occurance of geckos were just amazing actually.
As for the staff, they were the sweetest people we met the WHOLE vacation, disregard the pretty much drive up window office, and it was the most wonderful first impression because they were so great. Be sure to see the active volcano at dusk and if you rent gear use the store at the hotel, he is the sweetest man and has a book that tells all the secrets!! Our vacation was amazing. ROOM 372 (mountain view so we could have a higher level to avoid the native roaches, but still just fine!!). If you have any questions feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
