Overall a good hotel and just a cut above what is typically expected at a Courtyard branded hotel chain. Although the hotel is centrally located in Kona, making it easy to head to the north and south ends of the Big Island, the beach and pool areas at the hotel are small and not outstanding. You definitely want to head...

Aloha, Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. Although you have expressed an appreciation for our hotel staff and convenient location it is disappointing to learn that our room size did not meet your expectations. We hope that you will allow us to welcome you back the next time you are visiting the Big Island. Mahalo

We stayed over Fourth of July, and we were able to see the parade and fireworks from our balcony. Though our room faced the street, with the sliding doors closed we did not hear much noise - except for the occasional emergency vehicle. The hotel is perfectly located near shopping, dining, and the bay. The luau was amazing. My kids...

Spent a long weekend here and as always was happy with service, value, and safety. Great location in nice neighborhood and was great base for site seeing. Short walk to downtown Coconut Grove with restaurants and shopping.

Friendly staff throughout; very comfortable rooms. My room w/o view actually had a gorgeous view to the side of the bay, and across the roof to Hualalai. Good fitness center and pool, access to yoga (not free), but the biggest attraction for me was being able to cross the street and swim or snorkel in the bay. Coral right there,...

Stayed three nights and really enjoyed it. We came over to Kona from Waikiki, much friendlier and relaxed. Every area is sparkling clean and staff is attentive and helpful. Beautiful area, easy walk to shops and restaurants. Interesting Hawaiian art & history on-site in hotel.

We were very happy with our choice. We did not upgrade to get a better view but we were still happy with our balcony and made good use of it. Room was great, beds are super comfortable. Location is great- walking distance to the water, shops and plenty of food. The hotel food seemed a little pricy for our budget...
