The resort is 7 acres big. Yet as importantly;
Most other resorts in Kona fill the land around their units with parking lots.
Royal Sea Cliff has their indoor gated garage parking under the building (and plenty of parking) so the space is open for tropical gardens.
The open to-the-sky atrium runs all the way down to the Ocean. It has a stream, waterfalls, and is full of tropical plants. You can stroll the pathways pause at the vistas on the overlooks or sit on the lounge furniture at the end of each wing.
There is a game room, Ping-Pong table, well maintained Tennis count, and two large Swimming pools, one salt water and one fresh water. They are surrounded with large open decks and BBQ, and hot tub. With plenty of seating under cover and around the pools. there are also Cabana's with shower rooms. The large "Olympic-size" pool hosts 4 guest welcome for free events each week.
Expedia the travel giant maintains a fully staffed front desk and morning continental breakfast events with local speakers, to find Island-wide excursions HINT: some discount tickets and specials are available on the internet

We loved having breakfast on the wide balcony. The bird calls and the wonderful, balmy morning air were intoxicating. The apartment was lovely and just perfect for us. Very comfortable beds, very neat and clean, easy parking near the unit. Everything was perfect. Great swimming pools right on the ocean. Exotic and amazing plantings in the huge courtyard areas. Very quiet all the time. Could not have been better!

Stayed here for 3 nights while in Kona. Location was perfect as it was central but still private and quiet. Everything was just as described and Thomas was an excellent host. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for 6 days/5nights with my girlfriend and it was perfect! Tom is very professional and accommodating. Before our trip he suggested that we tell him some our interests so that he can assist us in finding some activities during our stay in Kona. The resort staff also put on an Activity Seminar in the mornings that provides guests' with information on some of the "must sees" during your stay. His communication with us was very good and he responded to texts, phone calls, and emails in a timely manner. The condo is as advertised and you will not find any unpleasant surprises. The pools (there are 2) were right on the waterfront and very relaxing. I would recommend this condo for anyone who is staying in Kona!

We had a great time at the Royal Sea Cliff. A lovely resort, very close to Kona but far enough away to be secluded and quiet. Tom was the perfect host, helpful and fast to respond and the apartment was clean and as promised. Highly recommended.

Tom provided useful, detailed, and timely instructions for the stay. He made it known that he was always available to contact by phone or email. His condo is in a great location for shopping in Kailua-Kona and exploring the Big Island. The resort had programmed activities throughout the week that we attended free of charge. The free Kona coffee in the mornings tasted great. The condo itself was quiet, clean, and spacious with convenient parking. The well-equipped kitchen made making meals as comfortable as home. Stacked in the closet were a cooler, folding chairs, and boogie boards which quickly became essential to our beach outings. We would definitely recommend Tom’s condo to anyone visiting the Big Island!

Perfect location, within easy walking distance of town and beaches. +/- 2 miles. Balcony ideal for lazy late afternoons watching the sun go down. Lots of info about the island in the apartment. Thomas gave excellent instructions, making arrival easy. Apartment well fitted, with unexpected extras such as cooler bag and body boards which were much appreciated. Swimming pools within the resort were lovely and quiet.

Tom's place in Kona was a perfect stay for my mom and I. We had everything we needed and felt right at home. Tom would check in with us before our trip, in case there wasn't anything we wanted to know about Kona he could answer for us, and while we were there he was sure to be available in case we had quesitons or concerns. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Thomas User ProfileThomas is a superhost.

After college at Pennsylvania State University, I started from scratch, a successful outdoor store called Outdoor Experience. Ironically, except for leading trips and teaching windsurfing, it kept me away from the outdoors. I sold it and moved to the San Francisco Bay area. I invested in homes in San Francisco, Ca. and Park City, Utah. Loving the outdoors and nature naturally drew me to Hawaii. It's so special, no where else on earth combines Fun, Excitement, and Beauty with a perfect year-round Climate.

I searched the Kona Coast with the best agents in Kona. Royal Sea Cliff Resort, has the best of all worlds. Beautiful maintained and superbly designed and on best part of the Ocean and Coast. It is the closest Resort to Kona, and it is the #1 rated Resort in Kona.

This Architecture is the best of the modern styles. It works so well with the Land and the Ocean, and the ancient Lava Flow Bluff. Though the buildings look imposing, they are not over 25' tall at any one place. One special feature is having most of the parking in the building, out of the Sun, raising my studio for a better view, and freeing the grounds for tropical Gardens. Only a few Studios were built, and are special since they are always at the end of the wings, surrounded on three sides with lush tropical vegetation. Very private and very peaceful.
