Great hotel, usual amenities. Our room was clean though like with most hotels in Hawaii, rooms are a bit dated. But frankly who cares, you're in freaking Hawaii! Don's Mai Tai bar which is waterfront is very cool and food/cocktails are excellent! Staff were friendly but strict about masking protocol which we appreciated! Location is prime - within 15 min from the airport, beautiful sunset every night, ocean to lull you to bed and not to mention walking distance to a lot of great restaurants, bars, stores etc. (on a side note, really enjoyed Huggo's next door as well). Overall had an amazing time and would totally book the Royal Kona again in a heartbeat!

I love this Hotel! The partial ocean view was perfect, the pool was great for both us adults and our kids, and the bar/restaurant is amazing. Never had a bad drink or food every time I stay here. Near shops and markets, everything is walking distance. The only complaint I have is the front desk lady was rude. My parents paid for a partial ocean view as well and they got a view of the roof.. unless you stood in the very corner of the balcony. then there's an extremely small view. When we called to the desk, she rudely told me that its considered a view nonetheless but she'll move them. When I went to get her door key, then same lady was rude as she told me the new room. Other than that, we had the perfect stay.

The Royal Kona hotel was perfect! Everyone was super nice and helpful, the location was beautiful (and near a bunch of great restaurants) and our room was cleaned each day - somewhat unusual during the pandemic! We had a fantastic time! Thank you!
