            Clean and orderly. Quiet at night. Very close to the town of Kailua, walking distance to pretty much everything. There was a woman and her friend that are like the Visitor's center down at the poolside, she knows everything about what is going on.....great rescource.

            The room we stayed in was fully stocked with everything needed for our stay. The only complaint was that the room was in a noisy location and the sofa bed needed new springs as it is overworn. Other than that, everything was fine.

            Loved the location of the apartments as Kona town was so easy to walk to for the Ironman and restaurants etc. Our apartment was lovely and clean and had everything we wanted including a proper electric kettle to make our tea...well we are british :). Stunning views from the balcony. Loved sitting there eating breakfast watching the waves crash on the rocks

            As we were in block f there was traffic noise and noise from other residents in the carpark in the night.....however we kept ourselves so busy during the day that we were too tired to be kept awake for long. Cost is a downside ......but that was due to Ironman fortnight!!

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Not a bad hotel. Great if you want to be close to Kona and it's surrounds but happy to cook at home also.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The apartment was quite spacious and well appointed. The location was great and the pricing was very competetive

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Room came with a nice kitchen fully furnished with all plates/utensils and cooking hardware. Great view of the ocean and pool. Ocean access was a bit rocky. Location was great but the rooms near the road tended to be noisy if you left the windows open.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            We will stay here again, marvelous Condo. Kitchen, Laundry & King bed were outstanding. Lanai overlooking beach was delightful. A/C worked well & Shopping was easy walking distance. 5 *'s! Mahalo!

            T he lobby is very small. 2 checkin's @ the same time will not fit :-)

            This is the second time we have stayed at the Kona Reef Hotel and it has to be one of the friendliest hotels we have stayed at. It is clean and the rooms are well appointed and they have a view of the ocean and sunset to die for. It well situated within a few minutes walk to the Kona shops and restaurants. We will be staying there again next year when we go back to Kona.

            The only thing we did not like was having to leave. Had we the time, we would have stayed there longer.
