“Wonderful Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The facility is wonderful, the rooms were very comfortable, the staff was super and the location could not be beat in our opinion. The onsite restaurants were a bit pricey, the pool grill was decently priced for Hawaii, and the food was pretty tasty. The grounds were very nice, pool was very good and the onsite beach was great, some of best snorkeling we did was right outside the hotel. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. Would recommend more towel hooks in the bathrooms to hang your bath towels.

Room Tip: Ocean views in the West tower were fantastic!

King Kam, as the locals call it, is a great vacation spot. Very clean, walking distance to great little shops-restaurants, affordable, attentive staff, not too crowded. Awesome breakfast buffet!!! Get the rate that includes breakfast.

We stayed here for 6 nights on our honeymoon & had a wonderful experience! Our room was clean & comfortable & the staff of the hotel were very helpful. We appreciated the restaurants & shops on the lobby level - all were very convenient. We paid extra for a Full Oceanfront View & it was wonderful! Definitely request a higher level floor if you plan on doing this, though. The resort is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, as well as public shoreline access. We parked at the Bougainvillea Center, which has free public parking, to avoid the daily parking fee of $14 at the hotel. The free parking lot is only a block & a half away & easy to find. They will give you a map with directions at the front desk in the lobby. They also gave us a free box of chocolate covered macadamia nut clusters as a gift for our honeymoon - a sweet (& delicious!) gesture. We would definitely stay here again.

If you are visiting the Island of Hawai'i to see the island rather than a beach vacation, this is an ideal hotel. It is right in the town of Kona on historical land with major sites walking distance, and several very good and reasonable restaurants nearby. The staff are very helpful, but operate at a Hawaiian pace rather than a mainland pace. Small glitches with my room were immediately tended and corrected by the rooms manager. The breakfast buffet, which was included because of my level in the Marriott rewards program, would have been worth buying. It was vast, and included an omlette bar with a great chef. The pool bar is a local gathering spot, so if you want to get the local buzz, this is the hotel.

Stayed a week at King Kams for our first time on the Big Island. Booked an "ocean view" room online and saved a couple $$ paying upfront with the no cancellation policy (hey, that's what Visa cards are for!) Our king bed's mattress was collapsing and after the second night i had to ask for a new bed. They didn't have a spare mattress but did move us to an ocean front room! Nice view but unfortunately 2 queens, we made it work no prob. Ate almost every breakfast at the coffee joint and I drank GALLONS of their coffee!! Pool was fantastic and also nice to have a little beach there. Luau was AWESOME but because I am the water witch, yup.......it rained! Not super heavy rain but we did get wet. I have NEVER had a dry Luau in my many visits to the islands! Great gym (as it's the Iron Man head quarters) and many morning were spent there or pounding the pavement. Always nice to have an ABC store nice and close and can't beat a Kona Brew Co beer on the lanai. Best food was at this little Jewish joint right on the strip but I heard it's gone now :( One of our favorite experiences in Hawaii ever was horseback riding!! Gotta go here http://www.naalapastables.com/kahua.html Awesome guides!!

Nice hotel with great location. Only sand beach on Alii drive area. Poolside bar is nice. Nice restaurant also. ABC store at the hotel. This hotel kind of serves as a communal area for local events. We liked being in the middle of all the fun and activities. There was an outrigger regatta race and a fun run while we were there. The sunset cruises and fishing boats departed from the nearby harbor. Lots of seaside restaurants within walking distance. If you get tired of the crowds, you can drive up the coast to the nicer but more expensive resorts.
P.S. The people that worked at King Kams were very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay at King Kams.

Room Tip: 4th or 5th floor partal or full ocean view.

Found this hotel to be a great base to explore the West side of the big island. Great location in the middle of Kailua Kona with waterfront access - I wouldn't say it is a beautiful beach but at least you can get in the sea!

Great for strolling to Kailua-Kona's bars and restaurants and not worrying about driving back.

Room was spotless. Great front desk service.

Much more reasonably priced than most hotels on the island.

Quite a retro feel which I liked!

Mahalo!
