Covering 15 acres with ancient fishponds, historic trails, and petroglyph fields, the Marriott has rooms with sleek modern beds, bright white linens, Hawaiian art, and private lanai. Three pools comprise a heated infinity pool, a pool with a sandy entrance for kids, and one with a waterslide for the young and young-at-heart. The resort offers only one restaurant, Hawaii Calls Restaurant & Lounge, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and featuring weekly food specials including entrée discounts on specified nights. There's also a coffee shop in the lobby, the Kona Coffee Shoppe. But there are many restaurants within walking distance at the Kings' Shops and Queens' MarketPlace. The hotel's Mandara Spa offers a full range of treatments in a spacious wellness center. Bordering the white-sand beach of Anaehoomalu Bay, the hotel offers a range of ocean activities through Ocean Sports Hawaii, including stand-up paddleboards, hydro-bikes, kayaks, and wedding-vow renewals on a catamaran.

The service at this hotel is absolutley amazing! We were treated like royalty, everyone was SO nice....extremely nice and genuine. They were eager to help us find places on the island to explore. The fitness room was so nice....there are three pools and a water slide! A couple of nights, they had amazing fireworks and music and dancing on the beach. The grounds are beautiful, the food was great, and the service was impecable. The only thing
I didn't like was the somewhat small room (the bed was SO comfortable!), but all-in-all, this is an amazing hotel!! The GOREGOUS sunset behind the palm trees each afternoon makes you feel you are in paradise!
