Kanaloa is an old-style condominium with several four-unit buildings spread over spacious well-maintained grounds. The setting is very pleasant, and our unit had a good ocean view. The ocean pool is small but beautifully situated above the water. Our unit was very large, well-appointed, and quite comfortable.

We had a class reunion at keauhou bay, our accommodations was at kanaloa at kona. On October 27th to check in, I called for early checkin Kanaloa couldn't accommodate, check in was at 3pm. So arrived at 3, still room not ready, proceeded to do other things. Called front office 1/2 hour later, still not ready, we didn't get into our room till 4:30pm. Got to the room televisions were broken sand on our balcony chairs and late check in, so we asked for a different unit, they could not accommodate again, there answers for these mishaps were excuses, excuses. Excuses!!! I work for the Hilton, we make things happen we fix problems we don't make EXCUSES, big disappointment. The suite that my friend had bad plumbing, the toilet after flushing shot out water, the shower backed up with brown water, the units are so outdated, I had unit 103

NOT the Kanaloa we've had in the past.

We had unit 1202, a one BR/one bath. It is very shabby. Little maintenance done probably since the start of the area! We knew about extra charge for A.C., the dish washer did not work, the portable fans were full of dirt & dust. Great for people with allergies. The designated parking was occupied by the 'owner's vehicle.' We were shown a parking spot actually more convenient to the unit. Yes, we had ants, but we are in the tropics. One cannot leave anything out on counters, ie. food stuffs. We like location being away from hustle & bustle of downtown Kona.

Great Location and Great Place to Stay!

Overall, we LOVED staying at Kanaloa at Kona. We did not have any issues and we stayed here for one week. This is more of a timeshare community than a “resort”, so I will refer to it as “the place”. Location: The place has an AWESOME location – 10 minutes north of Captain Cook and 15 minutes south of downtown Kona. It is located just north of the Sheraton. PLEASE NOTE: A rental car is a MUST here, as nothing is within walking distance other than the Keahou Bay and dock. Premises: 3 pools on property, everything was kept very clean and tidy. They were trimming the palm trees while we stayed, but it wasn’t much of a distraction. The check-in staff was helpful and provided a few good tips. There are very few amenities other than the pools – no spa, no restaurants, etc. Please note – this property does not clean every day and if you choose to have your room cleaned during your stay, it is an extra fee. ALSO – you WILL be charged a $150 cleaning fee upon arrival (this is noted on your reservation, but I see complaints about this on Tripadvisor). Do your research. The room itself: We stayed in Room 3401 (partial ocean view). The partial ocean view was to the small bay near the property, and we were close enough to hear the waves crashing on our lanai. Speaking of the lanai, we got a 1 bedroom unit. It came with two lanais (one off the living room and one off the bedroom). It also had a large living room area, full kitchen, and two full baths. This one bedroom unit could have slept a family of four comfortably, as the couch is a pullout queen. The full kitchen was awesome – they provided many pots and pans, glasses, plates, silverware, knives, cutting board, etc. The fridge is huge with the fridge on top and freezer below. We stocked up on drinks at Costco and were able to keep everything nice and cold. The unit has a blow dryer and they provide some shampoo, conditioner, and a body bar. Also, there are two beach towels provided. The décor was dated, but clean and in good condition. The biggest downside was the crappy TV. Not that I needed a great TV, but the TV color would fade in and out during a show and the volume would rise and fall without us touching a button. However, it was great the TV was newer, as I was able to plug in my HDMI Smart Blu-ray player and with the FREE fast Wi-Fi available, we streamed Netflix quite a bit. The TV in the bedroom is TINY, but we don’t use that anyway, so it didn’t bother us. Our unit did not have any AC, which was fine for the time we were there (late Sept. – early Oct.). I can imagine in the heat of the summer you would need the AC, though. OVERALL: We would definitely stay here again if we were to visit the Big Island. If you are looking for a luxurious getaway at a resort, this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU. If you are looking for a great location close to many attractions, with lots of room, a full kitchen, and at least two full baths, this is the place for you. As with any timeshare type place, each unit will be a little different, so please keep that in mind. I cannot recommend this place enough!
