We can't complain about location, or even price, but the room leaves something to be desired.
We really aren't picky,.. we even like tenting, but despite good staff, and a nice public area to hang out in what irked us was the room was literally damp. The carpet, the bed, everything. We though maybe someone had streamcleaned prior to our arrival,.. not so. If you are picky this might be a deal breaker.
Otherwise I would not have much t negative to say except the breakfast was pretty weak.
The Mango Sunset Bed and Breakfast experience was wonderful for both my wife and myself. Arriving from Kona airport, you only need to drive up the side of the mountain about 10-15 minutes and you're in the midst of an amazing array of coffee plants and fruit trees. We were greeted by Abby, the farm's dog and Inky, one of the cats.
The owner and proprietor, Hans was there to explain the common area, wifi and bedroom. He was a very friendly and open individual and it was clear that he would look after us during our stay. Our bedroom was freshly made with a wonderful breeze coming in from the patio that has a lovely ocean view (you can see the airport, but can't hear the planes). The bathroom was also very clean with fresh towels ready to go.
My wife and I enjoyed the morning breakfasts with the other guests and Hans and his wife Marsha very much. Always freshly made local food with an Hawaiian twist. We had the opportunity to use the grill outside to make some dinner as well. Supermarkets and the Farmers Market are a 15 minute drive down towards Kona. From the B&B, we had easy driving access to the whole island. Go left from the farm and you head towards the South Kona coast (great snorkeling areas) and go right and you can hit the North of the island, or take the Saddle Road East towards Hilo.
Overall we are very pleased and happy with our experience on the Lyman Coffee Farm. The 'WOOFER' volunteers that were there to help also had a hand in our welcome.
Fantastic stay in Kailua-Kona. This hotel is conveniently located to just about everything you could want to do on the big island. The beach is your back door with many activity options within a stones throw. No shortage of restaurant and night life options within close walking distance but found the night life scene shuts down early in this part of Hawaii. Would not hesitate to stay here again
We were very happy with the location and the staff. Our unit was a nice space, with lots of light, very quiet, and convenient parking. Unfortunately the carpet in the unit was very badly stained and sorely needed replacement.
I loved this resort. Only thing bad we're all the extra(inflated) costs. That was a surprise, so it upset me. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. If I knew where to buy it, I'd get one just like it.
We got some pretty crazy weather so we probably didn't get out as much in the area as we'd have liked.
Great to wander out by the shoreline and watch just sealife in the little rock pools. Convenient to wander out and get meals (if you don't want to take a car out constantly)

Kailua-Kona is the epicenter of shopping and recreation on Hawaii’s western shore. Big-game fishers delight off its waters, while shoppers reel in deals along Alii Drive. The Kailua-Kona area is a hiker’s paradise because many of its best beaches are accessible only by foot. Inland, the scent of coffee permeates the air as plantations harvest precious Kona beans. Nearby coffee farms open for tours.
