My family and I have been staying at this property at least once a year since 2006. Since then it has changed hands a couple of times, but a few things stay consistent. The resort grounds are stunning. Perched on a lava cliff over the ocean and Keahou Bay, the location CANNOT BE BETTER. Close to a shopping center with grocery and drug stores, and also a 5 minute drive to South Kona and the beauty that waits you there. Yes, some of the room details could be described as “dated”, we prefer to say “vintage”, and anything that may seem that way is always offset for us by the excellent cleanliness of the rooms. Over the years, we have seen several renovations to the property, and I understand that Outrigger will be continuing to renovate and upgrade the property. That being said, we have always enjoyed the accommodations and the rooms, and have always been comfortable and in a clean and welcoming environment. I would really like to comment on some of the staff at this property, that have been absolutely fantastic to me and my family over the years, with incredible consistency and consideration. Veronica, who works at the Reception Desk, has been an ANGEL for my family over the past 10-12 years. My son, who is now 21, always looks forward to seeing her when we stay at the resort. Over the years, and during countless family stays, she has assisted us with so many requests, situations, and questions, it would be impossible to list them all. Veronica is our “go to” team member at the property, and knows the area so well. Her willingness to help and make sure our stays are as perfect in every way as possible is the major reason we kept returning year after year. Indeed, after the resort just changed hands to Outrigger, it was Veronica who persuaded us to come and stay again in November, even though we are Lifetime Titanium Elite with Bonvoy- we returned to this Outrigger property with a friend and had a FABULOUS stay. I am now returning to the property in December with a dear friend to celebrate my birthday, and we are both looking forward to being at the property, and working with Veronica again to ensure our stay is perfect. For these reasons it is a pleasure to recommend this property to friends, family, and yes even to strangers!

Ok, the place is old and you can tell. But it’s clean and the staff is amazing! Large pool, and you can watch the Manta rays at night for free. Or you can walk down to the dock and be one of the 20 snorkeling boats that are hanging out just off the hotel. Do the 9am hotel tour with one of the “Aunties” from the resort. You’re going to be charged a resort fee so use the resort. Great place to get an early start to see Volcanos National Park. If you’re going to do the Park in a day, leave about 3:00, bring a real flashlight and see the glow from Devestation trail parking lot walk. One reteraunt is open and pricey but the food and drinks are good.

We had a lovely time on our mini honeymoon. This is not a luxury resort, however knowing it was formerly a Sheraton we expected a solid ocean-side hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The staff is lovely, the oceanfront upgrade is definitely worth it, and the proximity to manta-ray swimming is unbeatable. Concierge, Mahea, helped us to arrange our last minute manta ray snorkel. I can't recommend this enough. Don't be afraid and book it. It's a once in a lifetime expeirence. Engineer, Kent, also gave some great recommendations and was incredibly helpful when we needed some assistance in opening our lanai door. Kathryn (Front desk), Loretto (Valet) and the gentleman host at the main restaurant were all very helpful. Food options are limited now with only the pool bar and the cafe for breakfast/dinner. I am vegan and there a a few great restaurants in town that were a quick drive and I would definitley recommend.

The staff of this hotel has to be commended. They were friendly and helpful. The pool is big and fun. The hotel was just purchased by Outrigger and is going to go through and 80 million $ face lift. I will return when completed.

I came to Hawaii for a nice vacation for 15 days, we reserved this hotel for a whole week. When i came inside the room with my brother, the room was full of live cockroaches. It smells like mold, do not ever reserve here. They told us that it was normal for hotels in Hawaii to have bugs inside the rooms. This hotel is in need of a renovation the building looks like it is going to collapse, the advertisements make it seem like a million dollar hotel. After such a bad experience at this hotel they still refuse to refund me my money. My mother was told that a manager would be in contact with her to discuss the issues, after 3 months still no activity from them. Please do not book here.
