A great place(beware the extra fees after booking)

We got there in the evening and the security lady at the entrance took us to our condo and showed us where to park. She also advised us to go and buy some provisions from a nearby supermarket before they closed.great advise. The condo was large and we really did not use all the facilities of the condo itself but the one drawback was no air conditioning? The outdoor BBQ was great and we used it. The place was clean and well kept.

Home away from Home - Great Condo

We stayed 3 nights in a privately owned condo (404). The condo was fantastic, very spacious and was our home away from home. It was very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Also there were a washer and a dryer available free of charge as well as WiFi. The activities desk offered discounts for various tours on the island. We booked a helicopter fly with them. Checkin is located at the nearby shopping mall and the staff there was very friendly. The only downside is the 130$ cleaning fee, but we were aware of that from the start.

BEWARE of cleaning fee AFTER you have booked!!!

I was duped like Jesse S!! I booked through Expedia and did not see a cleaning fee. After I confirmed my reservation (which was non-refundable), there was fine print that there "may" be a cleaning fee. When we checked in, OMG, heck yeah there was a cleaning fee of $166!! And we were just staying 1 night!!! We stayed in room 803. It was ok, no a/c, 5 different types of flooring, average furnishings. We explored the island all day then late at night when we went to take a shower, we were horrified to find the bathtub so disgusting! We called the front desk and they said housekeeping was gone for the day and there was not another room for us to move to. We still had to take showers, so I made everyone wear their slippers. Total ring around the entire tub and the mat in there made me want to toss my cookies!! One other thing, when we went to use the safe, the key was missing. Front desk failed to give it to us, so we had to drive back and pick it up. Not too big of a deal, but after 6.5 hours of flying, we were tired! I really hope I get my housekeeping money refunded. This is absolutely unacceptable!

We had a great experience staying at Kanaloa at Kona. We booked a 2bed/2bath condo for 5 nights through Aloha Condos and stayed in unit #3601. The amenities at the complex were great, and it was super quiet (which was highly appreciated). The ocean pool had amazing views, and if we wanted a little more privacy there were two other pool options. We also loved the security of the complex with the gate key issued. Overall would stay at Kanaloa at Kona again, even if 3601 isn't available in the future! Great alternative to the resort/hotel scene, and provided the privacy and respite we were looking for.

DO NOT TRUST THEIR PRICES

I will be fair- the rooms are roomy and decent. Nice little kitchenette, and a lovely ocean view. That's about where the positives end. We found two cockroaches within minutes of entering the room. I get that Hawaii is full of them, but for over $200 a night that's kind of unacceptable. There's also no AC in the rooms. In hawaii, that isn't too terrible. Our weather is awesome. But we were doing a staycation from our normal Hawaii apartment without AC. We were kind of looking forward to it. Had I known they didn't have any, I would've chosen a different place. The mattress was super springy, uncomfortably so. I know that sounds like a nitpick, but imagine sleeping on a park bench supported by a box spring. That's pretty close. We couldn't find any outlets near the beds. So no charging your phone on the nightstand. We eventually found a miniature extension cord that we used. But again, in 2018 in a several hundred dollar hotel, that's kind of inexcusable. Worst yet, when I booked through trip advisor, I agreed to pay ~$220 for a night. When I got there, they charged me ~$370, citing a "cleaning fee". I'm currently working with TripAdvisor to get my money back because this hotel failed to disclose all of their fees. The young lady at the front desk was perfectly apologetic and friendly about it, but I'm still out over $100 right now because they quoted me the wrong price. Will never be staying here or recommending it ever.
