Kona Nalu, Truly Oceanfront
We stayed for 5 nights in room 303. This condo is well appointed, clean and generally well kept. Over very pleasing and pretty well decorated. The ocean front view is perfection, you can't get much closer to the ocean. The grounds are minimal with a small pool but for us that was irrelevant since you could literally touch the ocean sitting on your large lanai.
The value was pretty good considering the size of the room and location, less then two miles from Kona with ocean front from the living room and master bedroom. Only problem were the incessentants ants on the kitchen counters and I don't mean a few, I mean scores. It's a bit difficult to prepare food with one hand and wage war on the ants with the other. Throw in a daily sighting of a large cockroach or two and that really tempered our enthusiasm. My favorite was when one drppoed on my head as I closed the bathroom door or was it when we chased one out of my wifes suitcase with a flipflop...oh so many memories.
Sunquest didn't seem to concerned when we told them about the problem. They told us not to leave food on the counter, which we hadn't. If that issue was resolved I would give them an unqualified recommendation. Over all many positives, add some regular visits by an exterminator and this property becomes top notch. Otherwise, bring your "Raid" and enjoy. Also, they really need to fix the elevator it rumbles like a car with bad timing between the second and third floor.
Finally, the question of would we stay their again? I rated this property 4 stars but the bugs truly bring it down to a 2 or 3 star. I have spoken to the property manager since our return and they indicated there would be an improvement. With so many positives I would hope they would reslove some very simple issues and we could become regulars.
