Great Vacation!

North Oaks, MN

We booked at trip to the Big Island three weeks before departing. Given all of the hype surrounding the volcano, we were able to get a great deal traveling in early August. The hotel is newly renovated. The rooms were very modern and very clean. All of the hotel common areas were kept very clean as well. The beds were comfortable and there was not any noise you could hear from other rooms. Very quiet. We enjoyed the location. It's on a beautiful beach and you are able to walk to two different shopping areas with restaurants and stores. The Island Gourmet grocery store was located a short walk away in one of the shopping areas and we ended up stopping there quite a few times for quick takeout food and other items. It was a good home base for exploring the rest of the island. The hotel staff was very nice and friendly whenever we needed something or had a question. The bell hops always greeted us every time we entered or left the resort. We stayed for a week and spent most of our time exploring the island and all of the different beaches and used the pools at the resort a couple of times. The pools were nice. The hot tubs could have been kept a bit cleaner. That would really be our only criticism during our stay. The breakfast buffet was also a hit with our two children, ages 12 and 15. It was a bit pricey, but good. We would definitely stay here again. Thought it was a good value for the price we paid.

An Overall Average Experience

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

I booked this Marriott for the Big Island portion of our honeymoon due to location and having the necessary points to be able to book a 7-night stay. I am a Marriott Rewards Gold Elite member, and so upon arrival, we were upgraded to a corner room on the 5th floor, 2-King beds, great, but not really necessary. It did, however, give us more space. While I was aware of the "resort fee" that gets tacked on every day, I was unaware that parking would cost an additional $18 dollars (self-park); valet is $28, do also realize you'll be paying a tax of $1.25 per day on the resort fee itself. Upon arrival, we also received a mini gift box of chocolates (for being an "Elite" member) and two free drinks at the bar (we never got a chance to use them as we were our adventuring during the hours the bar was actually open). We also received a notice saying if we talk to the "Marriott Vacation Club" for 5-minutes group we could get 2 free breakfasts. We did that the following day, and 2 free breakfasts turned out to be 2 free sandwiches at the snack desk. You do however get a Marriott Vacation pass which gives you some local discounts, we were able to use it once to get a free appetizer at The Fish Hopper. We ended up doing the 90-minute timeshare presentation for $150 in "Entertainment Dollars" because we had a little time to kill and were told we could use it to offset our parking fee and resort fee. The timeshare presentation was actually enjoyable, as we got to spend time talking to someone local and ended up taking their advice on some of our day-trips! 2-days prior to check-out I went to redeem those "Entertainment Dollars" and spent 15-minutes going back and forth because they were adamant you could only redeem them on breakfast charges and additional add-ons charged to the room. They did eventually apply them as a courtesy credit (be careful with anything that's not provided to you in writing). The WiFi was spotty and my phone would only randomly connect (Error Code 203), racking up ~2GB of extra data use during our stay. The front desk's response to the internet issues was "you should have asked us at the beginning of your stay." If you are going to use the business center, it'll be an added cost of $6.95/15 minutes and $1/black-white page or $2 for color so print all of your vouchers, and confirmations at home. Printing boarding passes is free, but the printer created a black 2" smudge across our printed passes rendering the barcodes on them useless, we reprinted them again at the airport. For what it's worth, the hotel is outdated, and we weren't able to find anywhere to refill our water bottles, instead, ordering water to our room every morning. We ended up using our robes one day, and those never got replaced. I have to say, the view is very pretty of the harbor, and the pool is enjoyable. I don't think it ever got crowded and there's plenty of space. While this is a resort, I don't feel like the "resort" aspect added anything for us and the resort fee was a tax on us staying at the hotel without adding any amenities we may have taken advantage of. There were however many local cats that hang around the hotel, very fun to watch! I have historically stayed at SPG properties and decided to move my points to Marriott for the vacation package. If you're not someone who spends a lot of time at the pool and still want to stay at a Marriott property, opt for the Courtyard directly in Kona, it'll be cheaper per night, and my WiFi connected automatically when we went to the Luau at the Royal Kona Hotel (highly recommend). Overall, I expected better service and a better experience from a hotel that brands itself as a resort, but will then nickel-and-dime you an additional 20-30% in charges.
