Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa

Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa

This resort is best described as sophisticated, understated, islandy with Sig Zane designs scattered throughout, but a bit stark with lots of concrete. It does, however, embrace its oceanside location. (But there is no sand beach here, and they could use more...

Vista Waikoloa

Vista Waikoloa

Considering the caliber of these condos and the fact they're in Kohala, it's a pretty good deal. Units are large and nicely furnished, the layout is pleasing, grounds are well-groomed at this gated property. Many bathrooms have nice, deep tubs. Ocean views aren’t...

Na Hale O‘Keauhou

Na Hale O‘Keauhou

This gated condo was completed in 2005 and every time we've visited, has smelled amazing thanks to flowering trees. All have garages that some owners will let you use. The units are contemporary in design, and this resort seems less crowded than others in the area....

Kona Alii

Kona Alii

This condo building has the look and feel of a city high-rise, and the units are adequate. Floors four and above are better (traffic below is farther away especially on rooms facing the street). Units ending in 07–12 have pool/city view. This isn’t the place to...

Kona Hotel

Kona Hotel

This ultra-pink 1926 building is up at the 1,400 foot elevation level in Holualoa (above Kona town) where it may get chilly at night. It’s fallen into disrepair over the years, but new management is making an effort. However, it did have a musty smell to us on our...

Kona Tiki Hotel

Kona Tiki Hotel

This is a small old-style Kona hotel. All rooms have incredible oceanfront views right next to the water. How close? The swimming pool is permanently salty from waves washing over the rock wall and is available 24 hours “if you behave.” The guests usually end up...

Mahana House Country Inn

Mahana House Country Inn

This small inn is set along the gorgeous Hamakua Coast, 15 miles north of Hilo in a relaxing, rural area (cell phone reception may be spotty and they don't have phones in rooms). If you’re not looking for lots of lavish amenities and enjoy getting out to explore...

Kona Reef
Kona Reef

Kona Reef

Buildings A and D at this condo property are fairly quiet (except for the sound of the ocean), but units next to Alii Drive get a lot of road noise. The rooms are not bad, not great. If you’re gonna stay here, try to get a corner unit—especially building in A....

Arnott’s Lodge

Arnott’s Lodge

Located just off Kalanianaole Avenue in east Hilo past the industrial area, this hostel is popular with backpackers. They offer several tours in their vans, since, as they put it, “Most of our guests don’t have cars.” They have a room with 55-inch smart TV (feel...

Hali‘i Kai

Hali‘i Kai

Hali‘i Kai is a long, narrow, gated condo property. Some units are two-story townhouses. Buildings 13–15 directly face the ocean. (A narrow lava field separates you and the ocean, but you can’t climb over the lava to get to it.) Buildings 10, 11 and 12 have more...
