Vessel at Kona Kai Resort
Kona Kai's recent interior makeover is just ok for this reviewer, as "trendy" is not my thing. The inside bar is noisy and the former comfortable seating is gone. BUT the outside is a wonderful improvement! Comfy seating/tables w/good service, also quiet and scenic view of the marina. Heaters available for when the weather cools. GREAT menu and food. Excellent cocktails and very personable waitress. The big problem? PARKING. Unless you are a hotel guest or member w/cards, you have to park on the street (difficult in summer months) or temporarily park at the entrance area, run into the lobby and wait to be helped (over 10 minutes for my experience) at the check-in desk . They give diners a temporary parking card to use the lot.
