    Historical Traveler Reviews Holua Resort at The Mauna Loa Village Kailua-Kona

    Great service and quiet location

    from

    We stayed at the Holua Resort in August through our timeshare. The resort has wonderful surroundings of lush tropical vegetation. The guest services were very nice and helpful. The resort itself is secluded and quiet. We had a wonderful time and hope to return next year.

    Holua Good for the right vacationer

    from

    Holua Resort is an RCI Gold class timeshare. We stayed August 7 - August 13th on a special preview package in a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath unit with an ocean view. The unit was very nice with all the conveniences of a nicely furnished condominium.

    The resort caters to tennis players with 6 or more on site tennis courts. The 8 swimming pools are all fairly small and the resort has no beach access. However, the launching point for many of the ocean tours and activities is at Keahou Bay, approximately 1/4 mile from Holua. The resort is also surrounded by a nice golf club - Kona Country Club. The feel of Holua is that of a condominium community and not a resort as such. It is perfect for someone with a family needing extra space for children, kitchen facilities and all the conveniences of home. It doesn't compare well to the finer hotel properties that have large swimming pools, beach access, maid service every day, onsite dining and fitness facilities. We would have probably preferred spending more money and staying at the Hapuna Prince about 45 minutes north on the Kohala coast. We visited this property during our stay and loved it.

    As part of the deal we sat through a timeshare presentation from Shell Vacation Resorts. We did not buy but liked the professionalism of the company. We still think timeshares are trouble and generally not a good deal for consumers, but I suppose for the right person, its not all bad.

    The activities person at Holua, Shawn, does an excellent job of making reservations and recommending tours. But BE WARNED - you should plan as far in advance as possible for the activities you want to do - at least two activities we wanted were completely booked out during our entire stay. I suggest calling Shawn at Holua BEFORE your trip to Hawaii to schedule your activities (or at least to get his advice)!!!

    Bottom line - Holua is a fine place to stay, well maintained and friendly. If you want a condominium type experience and not the luxury of a fine hotel, this place may be for you.

    Great time at Holua!

    from

    This was our first stay using our timeshare membership. Most noteably- the staff there is so pleasant and helpful. The grounds are beautiful, although there is no ocean view from the first floor, where we stayed (not sure about the top floor), they have a viewing platform at the back of the complex to watch the sunset, they are just a block from the Keahou Marina where most of the boating tours leave from and are right on the Kona Country Club Golf Course. I was puzzled by the seemingly excessive number of tennis courts which absolutely no one used. They could get rid of some of them and add something else more interesting. The units are brand new, all new appliances, double sinks in the master bath and a great lanai with lounge chairs and a patio dining set. For us this turned into just a place to sleep, since dark clouds seemed stuck to the mountain of which the resort sits at the base, so we had to drive to sunshine, but this wouldn't be a bad place to actually hang out and relax. Oh, one more thing your practically down the street from a grocery store. This was a relief for us, having stayed in Waikoloa (the Kohala coast) every trip prior, where there are no convenience stores and everything costs an arm and leg.

    from

    ... excellent accomodations, 8 pools, nice landscaping and a mai tai party! This was our first trip to the big island, with 4 adults, a teenager and an 8 year old. The resort was nice, relaxing & comfortable for us adults, and had alot for kids; pools, tennis, basketball, etc. We enjoyed walking around the grounds enjoying the streams, fountains and landscaping - was a tropical oasis. Great snorkeling on the island, swimming with the sea turtles, and viewing the volcano was interesting too. Shopping in downtown Kailua was fun. We would come back again.

    Great December

    from

    Five of us (ages 58,58,36,33,1) stayed in a two bedroom in early December of 2003. The resort was fabulous and very clean. There is a seperate pool and hot tub for about every two buildings which is great.

    The location is good although a car is definitely a must. It is vey close to the grocery store, drug store etc. The units were massive with five of us (including an infant) having plenty of room. I would rate this resort a 9 out of 10.

    A bit of heaven on earth

    from

    The Holua Resort is truely a bit of heaven on earth. The rooms, the grounds, the location, everything was more than we had hoped for.

    Loved this place!

    from

    Loved this place! Spotlessly clean, plenty of room for 4 in the 2 bedroom condo, very well-stocked kitchen. My 14 year old son wanted to move in! Highly recommended.

    Unforgettable Mauna Loa Experience

    from

    We stayed at the Village with 2 adults and 3 kids, 13, 11, 9. The whole family loved the condo, recreation available, pools, hot-tub and the kids even slept on the balcony a couple nights. It was really nice. So much so we purchased a time-share. :)

    Great Facility

    from

    We returned from staying at Holua on January 11, 2003. This time we had 6 adults staying in a 2 bedroom and it was great; The layout really works for that many people. The site has 8 swimming pools, and a great tennis facililty. Walking to the end of the property allows great sunset viewing. The condo amenities covered everything, including a well furnished kitchen.

    Holua Heaven

    from

    We stayed at Holua Resort with our two children (7 and 10 at the time) in October of 2001. We absolutely loved the resort! It was quiet, spacious, beautiful, but still close enough to all the action. We will definitely be repeat customers.

After making the long walk all the way Fwd to our cabin on the Deck 7, collapsing on our bed and getting our breath, we finally succumbed to (what we though was) our hunger pangs, and set off to dinner at the ships Brazilian Restaurant, Moderno, to sample a feast Brazilian style. It would have helped immensely if we hadn't have eaten for 2 days before going to the restaurant. Once we were seated, we had the ...

    The clarity of the water was so much so that we at one point spotted a turtle swimming into shore towards some rocks. Every now and again he would come up for air revealing his beak before flapping his flippers and disappearing into the depths. What a sight to be treated to, thank you Mr Turtle for another Birthday memory!

AND, there was a huge endangered monk seal sunning on the beach (they're7 ft long and 300-400 lbs). From a distance, we watched him shuffle and slide toward the water until the surf pulled him in. Then we watched him surf out to sea. I know, right?! Such an amazing day!! Such a many-faced island. Fiery volcanoes, lush forests, stark lava ...

    Yesterday everyone was feeling the effects of too much sun so like lethargic beetles we didn't stray too far from home. It was Inger's last day so we asked what she wanted to do. Apart from exploring a few shops, she was content to relax around the pool. No one argued the point! We had dinner at the BBQ platform in the breeze last night. Dianne had mixed up some delicious burgers for everyone and had made a cheesecake with blueberries and strawberries on top to ...

    ... to see lava in a village and not out in the middle of nowhere in a national park.

    Once we left Pahoa, we headed North on the east side of the island. Past Hilo, we drove along the Hamakua coast. Here on the windward side of the island, the sea pounds the cliffs and rocky shores. Lush tropical jungle stretches into the hills, full of waterfalls. We passed many gulches with streams and waterfalls running through them on the left side of the road, with the ...
