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.

Kona Bali Kai

I arrived after 10 p.m. they did not have the room I booked a Studio with a partial ocean view. I was a bit disappointed until I went across the street to a fully furnished 1 bedroom condominium on the top floor. This was a great place to stay near downtown quiet clean washer and dryer full kitchen it almost felt like home. I would definitely come back hopefully sooner than laterv 9 days was just not enough time in paradise!

Kona condo vacation

Kona is naturally a great location for a vacation. Kona Bali Kai condos offer marvelous lodging to suit those vacation needs since it is right on the ocean front, with its own pool and the snorkel shop right there.

Peaceful & nicely out of town-perfect!!!

It was wonderful, just what I needed quite, away from town but not to far,no screaming little children, or at least non I could hear. my view was kinda ugly but I wasnt there for a view. I was there to relaxe, and thats just what I got. I think that it was so much better to stay here than at a hotel, because its like your own little house. I would stay there again.

Excellent beachfront location

Very friendly, efficient checkin, easy parking and at 2.5 miles, perfect distance from town. Room was supposed to receive maid service every 4 days, received it once in 14 days. New sliders in my unit (#207)made the lanai a pleasure to use and kept down noise when closed. Unfortunately the unit upstairs had old sliders which were very noisy and in constant use in the evening. Fantastic view from lanai, great ocean breezes. Washer/dryer and all other unit contents fine. Lots of surf action because it's at the entrance to Banyan surf break. Sea turtles, spinner dolphins, distant whales all viewed daily. Traffic flow on Ali'i is much improved since a couple of all-way stops signs were installed. Sunset Mai Tais at Kona Inn can't be beat. Excellent new fresh dinners at Lava Java, and Boston Basil's still the friendliest pasta place in town. Lots of very hazy days, mostly due to Kilauea's vents; only one or two crystal clear days. Kona's waters can't be beat for clear, calm snorkeling.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Make the drive over a terrible road to Mahaiula Beach in Kekaha Kai State Park. Beautiful gold sand beach, plenty of shade. Then put on your sneakers and hike the 1/4 mile A'a trail to the single most beautiful beach on the island: Makalawena. White sand dunes, body surfing, and a fresh water grotto back behind the beach to wash off the salt.
