The beach is beautiful, I thought people who described the sand as "like talcum powder" were nuts but it is actually true, all topped off by the delivery of cold face towels and fresh fruit mid morning. Our...

We come to this place because it's called paradise and it's true. Viewing is fabulous even from our rooms. Beaches are good. We are very very disappointed about few followings. 1. Biggest problem is communicating with staff. Very little they understand what we have to say. 2. Three of us are vegetarians so we find it very difficult and very...

We loved our visit to the Konokono which we'd booked very last minute for 8 days in the middle of October. From the very first welcome to the last goodbye, we were looked after fabulously. The owners, management and every member of staff were all so friendly and helpful. The food was great with plenty of choice and speciality evenings...

We spent a week at the Konokono resort and we loved every minute of our stay. The spacious garden villa was beautifully decorated, with a private terrace and pool, very clean and comfortable, and totally quiet at night which we appreciated. The hotel has both direct access to a great beach as well as a very nice infinity pool. The...

Although I'm a bit late, wouldn't pass reviewing this paradise of a hotel. We spent 5 nights for our honeymoon and were treated like loyalty. The manager Kirstin is really warm and friendly as is Ally. Food is good but can be improved. Highly recommended!
