Beautiful grounds and setting. Loved the smores at the firepits! If you are in a hurry to adventure during the day, consider skipping breakfast at the resort. Food is good, but lacking enough staff to support the AM rush. Very poor and slow service in the am. PM dinner and service was much better.

We had an overall wonderful experience. Beautiful suite room with harbor view. We were only there for one night but the time we spent in the hotel was a lovely experience. Our son and his bride were also guests at the hotel. I highly recommend this resort.

We loved our experience at the Kona Kai Resort. This visit was for a work convention. However, the room was so comfortable with great views and the nightlife was awesome, especially loved the fire pit with a glass of wine at the end of the day. We feel so rested because of this resort.

I've lived in SD my entire life and needed a place to stay and a stay cation. I never knew this resort existed. It was an amazing experience all the way around. When sitting at pool side you put your flag up and pool side service comes by. There's an abundance of towels on hand and fire pits on the beach to make your smores at night. They have the smores metal sticks to put your marshmallows on. The room I had.. had an amazing view of the harbor.. The only thing is there was a building in front of my room which did obstruct some of the view and I paid for a room with a harbor view so would of liked to know about the building in front in advance.. other than that it was a wonderful experience.. and as a bonus they brought me a microwave to warm my flax seed neck pillow and came up instantly anytime I called to request anything.. in my opinion the service was beyond and above..

We were given a large room, overlooking the water, with a balcony to enjoy the view. When we walked into the room, our two year old kept saying, "This is a nice room!" We ordered room service, which was delivered quickly, and was delicious! We had the poke, tacos, and chowder. The bathroom included a large tub, walk in shower, and mango coconut bath products that smelled amazing! The hotel is very close to the airport and to downtown. We will be back soon! Read less
