Just had a great stay at the Sheraton Kona resort in Keauhou. They finished a $20m remodel last month. Great platinum recognition. Included full buffet for free breakfast amenity, free valet, and no resort fee charged (no haggling required). We were upgraded to an executive suite which is two large two adjoining rooms with ocean front views and dual lanais. I had booked the second cheapest room level/rate for $120/night so I was very pleased. Hotel was 95% done - just one spot on the 3rd floor roof. Nice, big pool, redone restaurants, and common areas. No real beach as its elevated above a lava flow, but a great view and sounds of waves on the rocks. There is a beach very close down the street.
