Resort* Kona - Sheraton Kona Resort And Spa At Keauhou Bay 5/4 -5/10 $125 night

Resort fees are prevalent in certain zones. Keep in mind that some hotels charge excessive resort fees which you may be unable to dispute as Priceline now states on their website that these fees are your responsibility.

Bidding for 3&1/2* for $70 - $100 for a week with no success.
Bidding for Resort for $100 - $115 for a week with no success, finally at $115 I received a counteroffer to add $23
Rebid today and won for $125 for hotel above

Not the biggest saving, but bidding in KOA is rather difficult with only 3 bid zones.

Hotwire rates
Waikola: $132/night unknown 4*
Kona: $166/nigh unknown 4*
*These prices on hotwire varied every day and was hard to base my bids sometimes... Kona was $137/night last week and $118/night last night.
Orbitz: $188/night
Sheraton Hotel Kona: $159/night
*Note there is a $31/night "resort" fee
