It was such a pleasure to sit on our lanai mornings and afternoons to enjoy the ocean view. More importantly, the staff is exceptional. Everyone is smiling, kind, efficient, helpful ... everyone made us feel welcome. We visit Kona often and always choose Kona Seaside. It's the best location to walk everywhere, dip in the refreshing pool or a walk...

This hotel was clean, friendly, and had a great location. There aren't any bells and whistles here, which was just fine with us. We had everything we needed. Our only complaint was the hard bed (not very comfortable). It was a good hotel for the price and I'd stay here again.

Hi,

There isn't a shuttle bus, we hired a car. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the beach and many excursions run from the beach area. There are shops within a 5 minute walk also.

I'm sure there may be a closer beach but we drive to Hapuna Beach to snorkel and surf. That is my favorite Beach on the Big Island. Richardson's Beach on the other side of the island the Hilo side. Mahalo and best regards to you and your family.

Kona Seaside's check out time is 12:00pm noon. Should you have a later flight, we offer a secure place to hold your luggage and a hospitality room for you to freshen up before your departure from the Big Island.
