Situated by the ocean, this spa hotel is 0.7 mi (1.1 km) from Hulihee Palace and 2.9 mi (4.7 km) from Magic Sands Beach. Kahalu'u Beach Park and Kona Le'a Plantation are also within 6 mi (10 km).
The location is killer. It's on the water and next to the town so it's walking distance to most places. It is NOT next to a sandy beach but it has this wonderful natural rock pool/lagoon for swimming and is within a 2 miles of sandy beaches. The property rooms are a little dated but has everything you need, large and fantastic views. The pool and restaurant are great. The restaurant gets a bad rep for spotty service but they were fast friendly and the drinks/food were good. Check in took a long time but that was the only time we had an issue with time.
