Weekend getaway

I stay at this hotel everytime I visit this town. It's very homey and comfortable. But this time, I was unhappy with the cleanliness of my room.

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.

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.

I paid $40. for maid service and didn't receive any. I'm not pleased. I have to stay 7 days to have that service. What the heck I know what it's like I used to do housekeeping work. I believe that I should get 1/2 of my money back. I will let others know not to stay at KBK.

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.

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.
