Service was excellent they really tried their best, however the room wasn’t as clean as I expected especially during 2020, and half of the hotel was closed up. Newly renovated room was nice, VIEWS outstanding. Location is hard to beat.

Good if you like big resorts
Royal Kona Resort is located right by the ocean in the middle of Kona, within walkable distance to beaches, bars and shops. The bar in the hotel serves great cocktails with amazing views. We were disappointed by the ocean view room though. Our room actually faced the hotel entrance, and in order to view the ocean you had to bend over the balcony and look through the next room balcony first. If you are considering an ocean view room, don't bother and either select a room with no view or ocean front room (although it will be more expensive).

Room was clean and comfortable. We had a partial ocean view and you could hear the sound of the water, very lovely and soothing. My 5 year old enjoyed swimming in the pool.
