What People Are Saying:

What a great time!

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for suggesting the Kona Makai. We wanted to visit the Big Island for a relaxing vacation. This place filled the bill! The complex itself is located on the ocean front, set back from the very busy Alii Drive. The grounds and the gardens are beautifully and carefully landscaped. The pool and jacuzzi are great and a nice gathering place to watch the evening sunsets with the other guests. There is no sand beach, but you are able to snorkel or scuba right in front of the complex. The parasail companies launch right by the complex and are fun to watch. Maybe next time, we try it! The Kona Maki is not overcrowded and the office staff is very friendly and helpful. By the end of the week, we felt surrounded by friends and it was hard to leave, but we know we will be welcomed back. Thank you again for helping us arrange a vacation we'll never forget.
