Liked: Cleanliness
Excellent location touching the ocean. Clean spacious room with small kitchen and bathroom. No a/c but good breeze and you can hear the waves. No on site restaurant or room service. You will need to buy coffee, water and other basic food and beverages. No daily cleaning service. Only 5-6 rooms are currently available as renovation in progress. Suspect parking will be an issue if hotel is full.

A Hidden Gem We'll Come Back to Again and Again!
20/10! We loved everything about our stay at the Kona Tiki, from the great management to beautiful view and privacy. Falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves and swimming in the little private cove were highlights. Can't recommend it highly enough as a home away from home on the Big Island! Perfect jumping off point for exploration and an easy walk to downtown Kona, too.

Enjoyed the ocean waves just feet from our room. It was a great source of entertainment during the day with the surfers challenging the large waves and a great comfort over the night time in sleeping to the sounds of the waves rolling over the rocks in our large comfy bed. The place was also very quiet and respectful with excellent views of the sun setting each night.

Tiki Time
We stayed in a newly renovated room on the bottom floor of the Kona Tiki. We arrived on a late flight but thanks to Karen’s excellent communication with us, it was a breeze. We loved having the sound of the ocean waves and the waving palms at our doorstep. The little kitchen had everything we needed, including a toaster and electric frying pan. If we needed new towels etc.., a renewal system is in place. The hotel also loans some items we found helpful for our beach time. We loved the small size and it’s proximity to beaches and town. A car rental made exploration easy when we weren’t lounging and swimming in the hotel pool. While the hotel is still undergoing Reno’s, this in no way impacted our enjoyment of the place. If you like small, self-contained, waterfront, and authentic boutique places, this is for you.
