there was a bunch of us from college that decided to meet back up again 5 years later. the condo we stayed in was great and had everything we needed (beach towels, snorkeling equip., etc). however, there were a ton of older people there who were not very pleasant to us (why we never figured out).
Off the beaten track. A good place to stay just outside of town. By a beautiful pier. This is a concert place. This is a honeymoon place. welcome to kona. Kick your shoes off by the pool, dance in the tiki bar, eat with the manta ray swimming close-by at Pele's court, on the lanai, and swim with the fishes...at the nearby Keahou Bay. or take a fishing trip or a Cruise from the bay next door.
Play volleyball, nap, golf, go to a luau, or eat in elegant style at this resort. I used to work here...it is a great place.
