Great Value”

We enjoyed our stay at the Kona Kai Resort. It as a bit out of town and not much walking distance, but the Uber/Lyft rides were only about $6 to just about anywhere. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. I enjoyed my private patio for bikini sunbathing looking out across the bay. The Vessel had amazing Chilequiles for breakfast too!

Mellow spot ”

I live in San Diego and needed time out of my house because of quarantine. Friends came to visit so I chose a hotel outside of touristy downtown. This hotel keeps you close to everything but away from everything. Quiet and mellow both day and night. Awesome outdoor area that is spread out.

Top choice for a luxury holiday”

I knew I was in for a treat when some friends from San Diego lifted their eyebrows when I said we were staying there and oohed and aahed. Apart from one bartender, the experience was fantastic, with an outstanding room, view, and feel. You are even welcomed with a luxury box of s'mores to enjoy at one of the fire pits overlooking the beautiful marina.

Broken AC Unit”

We’ve stood at Kona Kai many times over the years, it’s always a great place. This time we were disappointed. As soon as we walked in our room we noticed it a bit warm although the ac was running, we figured it was just turned on since the room had just been serviced before our check in. We lowered the temp. down to 70, give it sometime and go cool down/relax by the pool with our 1 year old daughter. We returned a couple hours later and the room was still warm, we inspected the unit/noticed the unit was barely blowing air and was room temperature at most. We then lowered the temp down to 68 degrees and the lowest (preset) it went down to. We proceeded to get ready and head out for an early dinner. When we returned the room was the same temperature no change. This time we noticed the floor was wet from the unit leaking. We called front desk and were told if no tech was available, it would be serviced following day. No use to us then, we were checking out in morning.

Anniversary Weekend ”

We were surprised to arrive to a complementary bottle of wine in our room to celebrate our 25th anniversary. I don't think that there is any room without a beautiful view, whether it's the bay, harbor or courtyard. The resort has many amenities to use. We will be back!

The night was pleasant and we could hear the seals talking and singing ”

That was at the regular rooms where we stayed for three nights. Curiously, though, we also stayed at the junior suites, gorgeous, but very noisy. Can’t understand the difference bc the two accommodations are only a few steps apart. It is perhaps the orientation of the rooms? We had breakfast and dinner at their restaurant. Very good food served by very pleasant staff!

Run, don't walk, to another hotel on Shelter Island”

On March 12, 2019 I booked a “Bay View Guestroom, 1 King Bed” at the Kona Kai Resort & Spa and received a written confirmation for the same. When I arrived on March 23, 2019 around 3 P.M., at check-in I specifically confirmed with the front desk staff, that my room had a king size bed. After checking in we went off to dinner and didn’t return to the hotel until about 8 PM. When we went to Room 225 in the main building, it contained 2 queen size beds - not the king bed that I booked or was assured by the front desk representative was in the room at the time of check-in. Staff blew off the issue and told us "there was nothing they could do ". The room had a shower/bathtub that literally had holes in it. The management ignored our complaint about this and for 2 nights we were stuck in a room that should not have been in service. On the night of our arrival the fire alarm went off twice. Our room had no bathrobes or amenities yet we were charged a $31 a day "Resort Fee" at check out.

Not worth the money.”

The only nice review I have is... it’s a nice view. But other than that you need to make a reservation for pretty much EVERYTHING. The pool access, the restaurant, the water sports. You also can’t even get in the beach. Theirs rocks blocked off so it blocks the water. I thought their was beach access which is why I booked this place. But I was very disappointed throughout my bday weekend. I would’ve been happier going to my local beach.
