    Good for kids but bad view

    If you want a protected piece of beach with no waves for the kids to splash around in this may be the place for you. Our room also came with free buffet breakfast which was nice. If you want a great view go somewhere else. The view is spoiled by a huge ugly commercial pier right behind the hotel. Our waterfront room overlooked first the large ugly rooftop of the restaurant then the beach and pier. The room was just ok but starting to show wear. Common areas were very nice and new looking and there is an abc store onsite.

    WE'll take your money, but don't expect us to be decent...

    We live in Kona, but today went to the King Kam for their Buffet Breakfast, $30.00 each. On the way out, my friend had to use the bathroom. She asked two different employees to unlock the ladies room door. They both Refused! That is ILLEGAL as HELL. If you serve food to the public, you have to let the public use the bathroom!!! It's CODE and it is also Common Decency!

    WARNING! Theft and poor customer service

    WARNING! We had specifically requested no housekeeping during our 5 day stay. On day 3, housekeeping entered our room when they weren’t supposed to and after that our $50 ear thermometer on the bathroom countertop went mysteriously missing. Odd thing to take, but it was gone. After 2 weeks and multiple phone calls, hotel says they cannot find it and can’t corroborate this, so therefore cannot do anything to replace. Marriott customer service won’t do anything either. Rethink considering a stay at this hotel or any other Marriott property based on this lack of concern and action by Marriott.

    We booked a year ago and are Marriott members. Stay with Marriott regularly for business. This is the worst Marriott/hotel I have stayed at. First the room was sold as a great room with a view of the luau. When we got to the room it was a great view of the 1st floor rooftop. Then the toilet had a big brown diarrhea stain down the side. So I went downstairs, waited in line, to have them tell us there was no other room and would send someone to clean it. As I am writing this it’s been over an hour with no housekeeping in sight. So I decide to check out the rest is the room….makeup stains on the pillows and stains on the blanket. My husband then went downstairs again to complain and they are suppose to come immediately to change the sheets and clean but still no one has come. Frequent travelers and have never seen anything like this. Oh and to top it off, the pool is closed for renovation so no pool and a lot of construction noise. It’s actually highly unbelievable.

    Location, location, location

    The hotel was very nice and updated. The location made it easy to walk to many attractions. The onsite beach made it very convenient, with plenty of access available. An ABC store was onsite, as well as other shops. There was a luau located at the hotel that was well worth the extra money. The only downside was that the pool was under renovation and the food opportunities were very unorganized as to availability and hours.
