Amazing Location and Family Friendly Amenities

Fantastic location right on a cove in the Kona shoreline near world class snorkeling beaches and reefs. Super budget minded value considering its superb location, decent condo amenities, good hotel services, and very convenient resources for family needs. We love the freedom and cost savings of condo vacationing on the Big Island, and this is the best we have come across yet.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Kahaluu Beach Park Snorkeling is just about a mile south and has the best swim beach with large protected reef I have ever been to. Also the old historical Living Stones Church on the shore next to the condo is an amazingly friendly Christian church with lots of kid programs too.

Recommendation for family time

We were greeted with warm hospitality and cordiality. Our unit was clean, comfortable and met our needs perfectly. We determined that we would recommend Kona Bali Kai to our friends and family and that we would certainly stay here again. The cost was also very fair. Mahalo!

Out of the loop?

Maybe it's just me, but when I pay near $200 for a room, I expect luxury. Yes, it's close to Kona's beach and tourist area, yes, it's Hawaii, yes, paradise is right across the street. The buildings and interiors are old and show it. There was a $20 extra charge (on top of the $180 for the room) for cleaning, and the place could have been cleaner. All in all, it was a good experience, just overpriced.

mr

The location is good. After that there is not much to recommend this place. Very old and needs a lot of updating. Maybe an ocean front unit would be better than the partial ocean view unit.

NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

We are here now and I am not happy at all. Yes, the view is wonderful. Yes, the price is good. Not one mentioned in any of your past reviews that there is NO A/C!!!!!! It's warm here and it's going to be a hard sleeping in this heat. The place is old and out dated. The room is old and out dated. Next time we come to Kona, we will spend the money and stay at a nicer resort. I'm so upset I have 3 more nights here. What a way to ruin what was a wonderful 3 island, 10 day adventure.

totally 80's

This is a condo complex, I guess some of the rooms have been updated but ours was all original. I know you don't go to Hawaii to stay in the room but this one was pretty embarrassing. Our room over looked a locals favorite surfing spot, it was pretty cool to sit on the balcony and watch the islands best surfers do their thing, but it wasn't cool having them drinking and smoking weed just outside our hotel room every day and night. The place had a functional kitchen and washer and drier, having your own laundry was a must though, you only got maid service once if you stayed for 7 days, we were there 6 and got none. We also had to wash the rough and too few towels every 2 days because they wanted to charge for dry towels. Overall it was nice to have washer and dried and kitchen because we had a 1 year old with us, but next time we are going somewhere else.
