  • Maggie Sneyd was absolutely amazing! She was so helpful and sensitive to my needs while planning my wedding right before COVID hit. She is an absolute doll! The Royal Kona Resort was clean, very romantic and the professionalism on EVERY level was top notch! I defiantly recommend The Romance Center to schedule your wedding as well as the Royal Kona Resort. See you again soon!!!

  • I would give this resort 10 stars! Not only was the view and garden absolutely gorgeous, but the event coordinator, Maggie, was really the one who made it all happen. She helped me throughout the entire process, making it as easy for me as possible and meet all my needs. Super attentive, professional and personal with you to make sure it's done right. Countless emails, facetimes and phone calls before the big day! Maggie always responded quickly and worked it out. So grateful for her! What a memorable experience and the best day of my life! Thank you Maggie and thank you Kona Resort! We love you!

  • I had the absolute best experience with the Royal Kona! Like many others, we had to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic. Maggie Sneyd was so responsive and helpful with everything during that time! I chose Royal Kona because of the packages they offered. It included everything I needed and they totally delivered!! I felt like everyone went above and beyond but again, Maggie was just a dream. She was incredibly kind, knowledgable and extremely helpful. Planning a wedding is an extraordinary task and she handles it with grace and precision. I highly recommend this location for anyones special day. Our guests had the best time and said it was the best food they've had at a wedding. The chef was even kind enough to prepare my husband and I with our own vegan plates - even made our wedding cake vegan! It was amazing. From start to finish I could not have asked for a better experience. And not to mention - we were able to stay at the Royal Kona for a few nights (came with our weddin... Read more

  • Unfortunately due to the covid 19 virus we are unable to stay at the Royal Kona this July and have our wedding as planned. However, I am giving this rating for Maggie Sneyd in the wedding department. We were planning a wedding for this July and have been back and forth thru this process changing our estimate and adding and deleting things multiple times. This was due to the unexpected virus we were faced with unexpectedly. Maggie was very hospitable and helped us work thru every step of this process. She was very accommodating with all of our requests. When things are clear we would definitely love to work with her again. She was amazing!

  • Planning a wedding in a pandemic was difficult! Royal Kona Resort was able to pull through and gave us the perfect reception dinner for an intimate wedding / elopement. We loved the venue, setup, private chef, food & drinks and overall the service provided to us! It will always be a magical memorable night.

  • We got the Royal Kona wedding package and it was the best $$ we ever spent. Having a wedding planner was a godsend when you're planning the wedding from a different state. They provided majority of what you need in a wedding that my stress was greatly reduced as they do all the coordination with the different vendors. Meiling our wedding planner and Kayli our day of coordinator were simply amazing! Their food was exceptional! Everybody complimented us on our food choice of Hawaiian buffet. The venue was exceptional too! The hotel was right by the water. Our hotel room had excellent views of the water and resort and the terrace waa big enough to hold family or friends gathering before the wedding day. The venue itself is exactly what I dreamed of in my wedding. We did the ceremony at Nohea point and reception at Sunset cove. Dancing barefoot on the sand was such a blast after a day of wearing heels!

  • If you are planning a wedding in Hawaii -I 100% recommend here!! We purchased a packed deal and were able to customize bits and pieces to fit exactly what we wanted. The team at the Romance center were extremely helpful and explained the process and answered all our questions perfectly. The prices we very reasonable for what you would consider for a destination wedding, however, the outcome was a dream! For the rehearsal dinner we did the luau held on the Royal Kona campus and this was spectacular! All the tickets for our large party were purchased together so we were able to all be seated on one long table. Food and drinks were included-the pig was ceremonially brought out of the underground oven. The drinks were tasty and the food was amazing also. The show was about an hour or so and held everyone’s attention, including the small children we had with us! The following day - the wedding day! This day could not have turned out more perfect. Anela was our coordinator for ... Read more

  • My husband and I were married at the Royal Kona Resort on September 30th. Both of us were impressed with the quality and attention to detail that was given to our big day. Criste Ching exceeded our expectations with all that she did as our wedding planner and day of coordinator. Every employee that we interacted with was kind and welcoming. We felt as if we were leaving our Ohana when we had to leave at the conclusion of our honeymoon. We would definitely recommend the Royal Kona Resort for a wedding venue!

  • Maggie is magical. We had stressful days planning our wedding due to 2020. She made everything work out. What I would recommend about Royal Kona Resort is that everything is easy. From picking officant, musician, flowers photographer, flowers ect. You are given options and can check out their work.

  • My husband and I got married in February 2020 and it was incredible. Our day of coordinator did an absolutely fantastic job and was so on top of everything through the whole day. The venue was stunning and the staff were all so friendly and excited for us. They really made us feel so special. My only suggestion for future weddings would be to have some sort of signage posted at the lobby somewhere letting guests not staying at the hotel know exactly where the ceremony is as a few guests of mine were quite lost in where to go. Other than that is was a fantastic dream of a wedding day! Thank you guys for all your hard work and dedication.

  • Royal Kona Resort was a beautiful location, and for the price I think it was totally worth it. The coordinator I worked with was pretty responsive and so nice- the only minor hiccup was being told it'd be so easy to get an appointment for our marriage license on the island, when it actually wasn't. Everything worked out but that was the only minor scare we ever had. Our day-of-coordinator was so awesome and offered to make a last minute switch of the ceremony venue, literally the day before the wedding, due to rain. Everything ran so smoothly and she was great at discussing how everything would go and could answer any questions we had. The team and venue were a win-win.

  • My wedding day went perfectly. We had a ceremony at Royal Kona and Kayli was our planner and Criste was our on site coordinater. They both did an excellent job. I loved how easy the coordinators and staff made the planning experience for me. I barely had to stress or think about details when it came to hiring vendors because they handled all of that. They also took care of setting up anything we needed at our ceremony such as the bubbles for guests, sand for our sand ceremony and put out all of the decor. There was no set up or clean up needed on my part. They were very accommodating in the way they let me change details when I needed even at the last minute and they also let me have my vendors contact information in case I wanted to speak with them myself about anything. The only negative remark I have is concerning the pricing. While the prices for their ceremony packages are fair, I felt like the prices for the reception were a little steep which is why I didn’t have one with them... Read more
