This is a very nice, quaint resort. Yes, it is a little small but beautiful grounds. It looks a lot like our favorite restaurant KL Coffee or Conch House (whatever they call it) . The property is very well maintained and staff is very friendly. Will stay here again!

I would like to say that the Kona Kai is too small...or the staff are nasty...and the place is filled with bugs and is dirty and filthy...but that would be wrong.

The truth is...my wife and I would only be saying this to keep the place to ourselves and to keep others away.

In fact, the Kona Kai is clearly one of the best gems in the Keys. This was our 4th time staying on the property and as always, we were not dissapointed. Joe, Ronnie and their staff were (as usual) incredibly friendly and helpful. The grounds were perfectly maintained and even at full occupancy the place was peaceful and quite.

If you are looking for full service resort with a pool bar pool and prepared food delivered to your room, go some place else! The Kona Kai is for the discriminating client who wants the perfection of tranquil grounds and clean well decorated suites and rooms.

Just do us a favour if you decide to stay there...leave a suite for us.

One thing to remeber when vacationing in the Keys, many resorts charge parking and resort fees which the folks at Kona Kai DO NOT DO. So when you are pricing and comparing everything on line, keep this in mind. You will see that the prices at the Kona Kai are more than competitive.

Why am we writing this positive review? Because Joe, Ronnie and their stafrf deserve it.

Cheers,
R.A.

The most picturesque, serene place I've stayed in years! Very private and quiet 2 acres of beautifully landscaped property. Owners and staff very nice and accomodating with wide range of information regarding the area. Loved Rob's Marina and the Hungry Tarpon - reminds me of "old Florida" and Ballyhoo's - across the street has THE BEST seafood around.

My wife and I were driving through the Keys back in May and spent two nights in Key Largo. We had never stayed at Kon Kai, but we'll be back. It's set back off the highway and very quiet. A great pool and beach. The ground around the resort are well kept and very inviting. Plenty of places to stretch out and relax or take a nap including a couple hammocks. Unfortunately for us it rained during our visit, but we made the best of it. Looking forward to going back when the weather cooperates a little more. The owners are very friendly and helpful with recommending dining options and things to do, while in the area.

I am not going to write a massive review, just agree with everything positive said about Kona Kai. All the negative reviews are obviously rediculous. This is the single best place I have stayed- and that comes at a premium. All these tight people who moan about the price have not got a clue. The staff were all very nice, the buildings were finished to a high standard.
We are looking forward to our next visit.
If you want to know more then email me.
