Big resort hotel with a small private beach. Walking distance from dozens of shops and excellent restaurants. Nice connected lobbies including a hand-carved wooden racing canoe. We had a great time! Short drive from surfing beaches, and everything else is walking distance.

This resort is not the most luxurious place in town, but for one sixth of what you'd spend at the Four Seasons, you can't beat the great lanai view and beautiful little beach right in the heart of Kailua-Kona. Service, room, and amenities were great, especially free parking, wi-fi, in-room Kona coffee, etc. We also took a wonderful morning yoga... More

Wonderful stay but didn't fully take advantage of the property in our short stay as we were out exploring. Never saw the beach out back, or used the pool, or walked to the nearby shops/restaurants. However, the hotel is lovely - quite large for a Courtyard (heard this may be the largest Courtyard) with a beautiful lobby, and very welcoming... More

Everything was excellent. All the staff went out of their way to please us. Rooms very clean and not lux but everything and more I expected from a courtyard. We could walk to everything in town. Was on beach. Could watch all the action on pier. Would stay again.

In the heart of Kona. Pick this property because of it's location. It's any easy walk to restaurants (including fast food) and shopping. So...if your counting your pennies, you can eat on the "cheap". This is NOT a resort in the sense of a large pool and expansive beach. A smallish pool and a small beach set back in a... More
