The area was awesome! Our room had a view of the Marina and it was beautiful !!! There was a sand area where at night they had fire pits which made the view awesome as well and during the day they had beautiful cabanas where you could sit have cocktails and enjoy the view. The 2 pools are also very nice and can also take a stroll by the marina to site view. What is also convenient is the marina has boat,ski, and other water rentals that are easy to book. Love this place and would stay here again!

When we arrived to check in, we were told that our Jr. Suite would not have a view of the water or marina, as stated in the Travelocity listing, but instead would have a view of a brick wall. The young woman who checked us in seemed indifferent at best and offered no solutions. A second, more helpful clerk offered us a different option, and we opted for a standard room with a marina view. At check-out, we were billed for the Suite instead of the less expensive standard room. I had to remind the new-yet-still-indifferent front desk clerk of this fact. She grudgingly altered the charge. At no point did she ask how our stay was. Our room was not cleaned on the 2nd day of our 3 day stay. We asked for shower soap/gel (there was none in the bathroom), were promised some would be delivered, and it wasn't. The family pool was over-populated by Marina-club members with no kids. They could have used the adult-only pool, thereby freeing up some space, but no one seems to regulate this system. Sadly. All in all, it seems like the front desk crew could use some Hospitality training, the housekeeping team could go ahead and clean the rooms (instead of asking us on day one if we wanted them to do that. Yeah, that happened.) There's got to be other options in San Diego. Seek them out.

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding your stay at Kona Kai. We apologize that the original suite was not to your liking, however, like that the agent was able to provide you with some alternatives. We apologize that you felt some push back from one of our agents, and we will be following up with proper procedures and customer service. Our Housekeeping department has also been informed regarding the service as every room should be tidied up unless the guest has provided a do not disturb. We again do apologize for this inconvenience, and wish you great luck in your future travels.

We returned to Kona Kai for a second time - excellent trip! Our room the first time was much nicer...be sure to select a Bay or Marina view room. This resort has great service - and many ammenitites that mean you don't have leave much. Great restaurant, spa, firepits by the marina, pools (including 21+ pool) and more! Was slightly shocked that the resort fee did not include parking, so it was not perfect.
