“Wonderful Vacation in Hawaii”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

Exchanged a timeshare week to stay here in Feb 2013. We were given a 2BR, 2BA unit with oceanview. It also overlooked the pool. We arrived on a late flight and check-in was very quick. The unit was very spacious. The only downside was that it was a bit musty. I am very sensitive to this condition but it didn't seem to be a problem during the period we were there. The staff was very helpful, especially the concierge when it came to planning activities. I was concerned about what to do while on the Big Island, but we stayed very busy with snorkeling, whale watching, shopping, eating, waterfall chasing, luau, and volcano climbing. We rented a van and drove around the island in 12 hours, but that included stops at the scenic overlooks, bakery in Punalu'u, black sand beach, shopping in Hilo, and stops at three waterfalls. We walked to Kailua-Kona twice. It's only a 20 minute walk and has many nice shops and restaurants. We vacation 2-3 times a year and this was our best vacation yet!

At Riyal Sea Cliff now, on a timeshare trade. In a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite, size of an apartment,with living room & full kitchen. Air confitioned & free wifi. Excellent helpful staff, plenty if free parking, full kitchen. 2 pools and hot tub. Only drawbacks are location. No restaurants or shops in walking distance but loads of places in easy 5-10 minute drive. No beach on site but just very short drive.

The rooms are nice, we had a 2 bedroom unit which had 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen which was nice. We asked for a crib for our 6 month old and got a play pen with saggy bottom so we had to put pillows and cardboard in it to make is somewhat useful. Since we stayed in Feb we did get to see some whales breaching from our room which was nice. It would be nice if the hotel had a restaurant/lounge so you don't always have to make meals in the room or leave the hotel to get something to eat/drink. The pools are very small and there isn't much seating around them but it is good enough.
Staff is very pleasant and the grounds are very well kept and clean.
Overall a decent place to sleep but not a place where you want to spend a full day.

Room Tip: ask for ocean view!!

We unfortunately got convinced to invest in a Wyndham points trial for one year. After attempting to find anything in Hawaii for one week we ended up staying at this property. We were put in a condo near the pool with a view of the ocean... well, the place looked like it had been decorated about 20 years earlier and had what I would refer to as very little personality. Our 'choice' ocean view room was if you went out onto the deck and looked over/around the pool which by the way was frequented from 8 am till 10 pm with kids yelling and adults enjoying the jacuzzi which was about 15 feet from our sliding door. We actually had to close the sliding door so we could hear ourselves. We also had a limited ocean view kind of over the pool area from our bedroom but for obvious reasons if we opened the drapes to take in the view all the attendees at the pool had full view of our bedroom. For the price we paid (which ended up being around $1800) for the hazardous Wyndham trial program... this was certainly not what we expected and for sure I would never go here or spend more funds with Wyndham again.

if you're looking for a great location with 2 pools on the ocean front, this is it! Sit at the pool and whale watch, watch the cruise ships come and go or just enjoy the 2 pools! Unit front doors all open up to an atrium of plant life! Time Share units are spacious, kitchens are well equipped and the lania's are great for enjoying meals and conversations outside. (where else would you want to be in Hawaii!) Loved Kona over Maui. This location is perfect; just minutes north to downtown for shopping or dining, and then minutes south to Hawaii like it used to be with quaint towns with quaint shops, diners and eateries and ice cream stops. The best of both worlds! Staff was courteous and friendly, parking is on every level, unit was quiet. Would return again and again!I

Room Tip: If you need elevator access, ask for one near them.

We recently returned from Kona on the big island, and would recommend it to anyone! I have been to Maui as well, and will go back to Kona in a heartbeat over Maui. The Wyndham Royal Sea Cliff was our resort, and we had room 309. They told us at the desk it was not oceanview, but we could see the ocean from our balcony. The room was huge, and suited our two girls ages 3 & 4 perfectly.They had their own bathroom as it was a full two bedroom suite. Huge lanai off the living room, and bedroom, and room was updated and met all of our needs. The night life nearby was great as we were there over New Years Eve and found many places to eat, shop, and sightsee. We went up the highway to the volcano which was neat, but on the long 2.5 hour drive up on the windy road makes for carsick kids. Saw steamvents etc up top, and the crater, but no lava flow. Only way to see that is to do the helicopter ride. Neat though. The beaches nearby were good, but rocky. There are a couple within a 10 minute drive. No restaurant at the resort, but the kitchenette served us well. Housekeeping was great as they came on their own 2-3 times during our week stay to replace towels etc. The sales desk downstairs is a bit pushy, telling us they could get better deals on things everywhere when I found online even cheaper than they were offering, and they needed us to take a 2 hour "tour" of the Wyndham resorts. Beautiful pool view of the rocky beach, and the surf could easily be heard through our open balcony doors overnight =) Great stay!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for oceanview or oceanfront as ones far away are a long walk to pools etc.

We were there the first week of January 2013. The 2 bedroom we got had been remodeled and was nice and very big. We had choice of partial sea view or remodeled and chose remodeled.
Facility well kept and everyone was delightful.
