The Big Island, Hawaii

A travel blog entry by davidandjackie on Aug 28, 2013

1 comment, 24 photos

We arrived in Kona around 6:00pm, rented our car and drove to the condo we had rented. The big island is pretty weird by the airport....just lava rock and dead bushes....we were all a bit nervous about the place we chose to visit. After 25min of driving through all the death and destruction we began to see trees, water, beaches and general …

Trigger, Stanley and too many dolphins to name!

... We then went for a lovely Italian meal over the road as it was the only food for over a mile and we weren't walking anymore, luckily it was absolutely delicious and not too expensive!

We had two main jobs for the next day: get a hire car and book a horse riding tour. So we got up pretty early and caught the bus to the airport where we hired a car for the duration of our stay. It wasn't as nice as the Mustang but it was still good enough. With our new wheels, we set ...

Whale Watching & Poi Making Fun Day!

... distance: 3,000 miles one way trip (6,000 miles round trip) from Alaska

  • What are they doing here: to give birth, as water is shallower (only 600 feet), and no predators in the breeding ground. Good place for calf to practice swimming and working on the peduncle muscle near the fluke (tail flipper).
  • Whale watching here was just a phenomenal experience. There were so many whales, that one can easily spot the spouting, ...

    Touring the south Kona Coast

    ... There are reconstructions of temples and remains of the original buildings. It is a really well done park. There is also a 2 mile loop trail that goes to some other historical sites, the remains of a village and past some lava tubes. I did part of the trail. I decided to cut off at the path that went towards the coast rather than continue to the village because I was too hot. But I'm sure the remaining sites ...

    Up the street we spotted a sign for the Original Donkey Balls Factory. Obviously we couldn’t resist. Turns out it’s a candy store that makes the most original flavours of chocolate balls and other candies we’ve ever seen. If you’re interested they’re at www.DonkeyBallStore.com ...

      We Love KCR II

      from

      We have stayed in the KCR II twice, in '02 and '03. Both times we requested a ground-floor 2 bdr. and the staff was very accomodating, trying to put us near either the volleyball pit or the playground, so the kids could run right out and play. I think the first year, there may have been ants in the kitchen, if we spilled anything sweet, but my experience is that this is very common in Hawaii, esp. in ground floor units. The pool area and view are great. The activites are fun, varied and reasonably priced. My only complaint is that the restaurant was TERRIBLE in '02 and was either under renovation or gone by '03. The poolside drinks are great, however. I have heard the units in KCR I are bigger, but I had no complaints about mine. WE're returning in '05.

      Very comfortable

      from

      My four teenaged/young adult children and I stayed in a 2BR/2BA unit in Kona Coast Resort II the last week of August 2003. The accomodations were very comfortable, clean and attractive and we had everything we needed for a pleasant week's stay. I agree with the comments about using the staff to arrange for outings - they gave good recommendations - and the pool was very nice. My fondest memory is sitting on my patio overlooking the golf course and an ocean view - beautiful in the morning and at sunset. This was my first ever timeshare exchange and it went without a hitch.

      Great Stay on the Big Island!

      from

      This was my second time at Kona Coast Resort II and we actually purchased our timeshare here! This is a beautiful resort to stay in. As I took the virtual tour on the internet, I could almost feel, hear, and smell the wonderful place that it is. You definetly feel like you are in paradise at this resort! Aloha, and Mahalo!

      DO NOT STAY HERE! DO NOT STAY HERE!

      from

      DO NOT STAY HERE! DO NOT STAY HERE! DO NOT STAY HERE!My husband and I had the unfortunate experience of staying at the Kona Coast Resort I for four nights in October 2003. We exchanged our timeshare points to stay on the Big Island and after reading the reviews of the KCR, we felt comfortable that our stay would be favorable.However, that perception ended after the first night at our hotel. Every day before starting off for our excursions, I liberally applied Skin So Soft bug repellent to my body and had managed to avoid a single bug bite, even when I visited the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens, where mosquitos were in vast supply. So, imagine my surprise on the second night at the KCR I, to wake to find my right leg had two large quarter size welts from bug bites. We had kept all the windows closed to our room, so we had no idea how the critters had managed to enter the suite. I am always cold, so I sleep beneath the sheets and blankets. The only way the bugs could have bitten me was if they had crawled beneath all the covers. We did a search of the bed and found nothing. The only thing nearby were ants, that were on the nightstand, which we killed.The third night, I woke to find two more bites, one on each forearm. I was getting concerned about bed bugs.On the fourth and final night, I decided to sleep with my bug repellent on. I woke up at 4AM in the morning, scratching uncontrollably. This time I had three more bites on my right leg, three on my right leg and two additional ones on each arm, each the size of a quarter, for a total of fourteen bug bites.

      Super Ono Resort!

      from

      Ono means good in Hawaiian...and that was this place. Kona Coast Resort was very laidback. The staff always gave us the "hang loose" wave as we entered or left the resort. That attitude makes this a top drawer resort if you decide to stay here.

      A Must Stay Resort

      from

      My husband and I stayed at the Kona Coast Resort II a week ago and we loved it. It's clean, comfortable and the staff were great. You must book your activities through the activities desk because they are so helpful and will give you the best advice on what to do and what not to do. Also they will help you with directions to whatever destination you want to visit on the island. **NOTE** Stay in Phase II instead of Phase I, the oceanviews are so much better and the units are nicer.

      Best condo resort on the Big Island!

      from

      This resort is simply great! We stayed at one of the 2-bed, 2-bath units in Phase I, in July 2003, and found the unit to be wonderful. It was a second floor, ocean view unit in perfect condition. Incredibly large, with a fantastic lanai, well equipped kitchen, and high quality furnishings. The resort is extremely well maintained, with meticulously lanscaped grounds, beautiful buildings, and a large number of amenities, including two very nice pools, excellent tennis courts, a poolside restaurant/bar, and even an exercize room. We enjoyed the free entertainment and pupus every Tuesday. We also liked being within walking distance of Kahaluu Beach (great snorkeling for beginners) and the Keauhou Shopping Village, with its restaurants, shops, movie theater, and a great KTA supermarket. Free Hawaiian entertainment every Friday! The Kona Coast Resort is a real gem, with a location that can't be beat!

      Always refreshing

      from

      I have gone to the Kona Coast Resort Phase l and ll for the last three years consecutively and find that each year has been as refreshingly wonderful as the year before. The furnishings and grounds are well maintained and the location is convenient for all of my family requirements which includes church attendance, snorkeling, tennis, sight seeing and touring the island, eating out occasionally, and I anticipate spending another week there this year. The personnel have been very accommodating in seeing that my daughter received her first swimming lessons there and also enjoyed the daily activities provided on site which included coconut painting, bracelet weaving, angel making, and lea making to name a few. I had my wife surprised with a birthday cake one year during one of the get together meetings. To say the least, I love the place and will bring my brother and his girl friend this year with us.

      Great space -- uncourteous staff

      from

      We exhanged our timeshare for a week in KC Phase 1 -- the condo was quite large and had good amenities. We requested a top floor unit and was told at check "No Luck". Well, we had luck, but it was bad. Our first night had a group above us ending their trip and were enjoying their last day -- sound travels through the floor/ceiling. They were leaving the resort early the next morning and we awoke to the sounds of suitcases clunking down each wood step. We called and asked to be moved and were told no. Later that day a new group arrived upstairs with a very energetic 3 year old (used the condo as a running field I think).

      Beautiful and Wonderful

      from

      My husband and I stayed in a 1-Bedroom, 2-bath unit at this site. It was absolutely incredible, and a great value for the money.

      The unit was spacious. The extra full bath was unexpected. The site has an EXTENSIVE activities desk that books excusions, as well as many activities sponsored on the site.

      We stayed here October 2002, and plan to return to this site this year.

      The condo is decorated tastefully. It was more comfortable than being at home. There is nothing negative I can say about the place.

      I highly recommend the Kona Coast to anyone.
