We just needed a place to rest after a full day of exploring this side of Kona and this fit the bill! Clean rooms, air conditioning. Very nice facility, the reception area always had icy cold water flavored with fresh fruits. Staff was always pleasant and accommodating.
We where a family of in two units and we had a wonderful time. It is a pleasent hotel nothing fancy, but you feel at home and it is close to stores and restaurants. The staff was wonderfu always had a smile and provide us with all we requested (supplies).The rwo rude ladies mentioned in a review , where extremely nice and courtieous and always had a smile. Who ever wrote that review was probably what now in days people call HATERS unhappy people. I would definitly recomend The Kona Billfisher .Thank you to everyone
The Wyndham Kona Hawaiian Resort is a nice condo complex located just outside downtown Kailua-Kona on Ali'i Drive.
The units themselves are terrific, with large lanais perfect for morning breakfast or evening drinks. Ours was a two bedroom/two bath unit with full kitchen and in-unit washer/dryer. The master bedroom included a shower and a claw-foot spa tub.
We also really enjoyed the two pools that are on the resort grounds (open to 10PM).
Downsides? (a) Check-in can take a while due to thin staffing, at least if you have a late-arriving flight. (b) Getting a parking permit requires you to visit a separate "guest guide," who will attempt to give you a sales spiel before letting you have your parking permit. (c) Check out time is VERY early: 10AM. If you're taking a redeye back to the mainland, this can be surprisingly inconvenient. (d) Complimentary wireless only allows you to connect a maximum of four devices. (e) There's a small in-room vertical safe, but it is built into the wall and it is easy to have a laptop or other item fall out of the safe when opening or closing the door due to the vertical format. The safe is also only big enough to hold three normal-size laptops (larger 17" laptops won't fit). (f) Even though everyone talks about Kailua-Kona being desert-like relative to Hilo, don't believe it! We had multiple days of torrential rain, so bring rain gear! (g) During the evening, it is hard to see the resort's signage. Better lighting would be very appreciated

My first time in Hawaii and it was amazing! So glad that I stayed at this hotel. It had its own little beach as well it is right on the main downtown strip of all of the local shops and restaurants. Also did the BodyGlove snorkeling and they launched right off of the pier at the hotel. So it was nice to just walk out of the back of the hotel and its right there. Also did the luau at the hotel and it was awesome even though they had to move it indoors because of the weather. Absolutely recommend this hotel to everyone.
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.
