Ocean Club Bar and Grill
Dining at the Ocean Club Bar and Grill at Halii Kai is unforgettable. Our chef prepares menu items using local fresh ingredients such as famous Waimea produce and Big Island Beef, our own chef-grown herbs and vegetables, and fresh-caught seafood Monday through Sunday. The Ocean Club Grill serves up delicious island-inspired lunches and pupus (appetizers) are served from 11:30 am - 6:30 pm; last call for food is 6:15 pm. The bar closes at 7:00 pm and last call for cocktails and beverages is 6:45 pm. The ocean-front setting is priceless; you may find that you lose all track of time in this beautiful outdoor restaurant.

Better than Hilton/Fairmont/Marriott

Castle Halii Kai At Waikoloa is a condo complex. It is a beautiful location and well maintained. Our unit, 9-D, had a great view of the ocean, the Hilton golf course, and the evening sunset. (Units 7 or higher should have equally desirable views.) It's just like home away from home--nice dishes, silver/glassware, attractive furniture, comfortable beds, a full covered patio, a Weber grill, dishwasher, full refrigerator, and a washer and dryer (which we even used!). Additionally, two large flat screen TVs with cable are included. With some plans, breakfast is inluded--it's modest, but it's good food and the view is gorgeous. Exercise equipment and swimming pools are located in this same area with similar outstanding views of the Pacific. Yes, food at the major restaurants is expensive (as in $40 or more without wine). However, there are Wal-Mart, Target, Cosco, K-Mart, and Safeway stores 7 miles South of the airport so you can do your own thing for a lot less by shopping there and enjoying the fresh foods in your own condo or on its patio. Natives will tell you that Merriman's Restaurant offers good food selections at more resonable prices. During our four days on the Island, we drove nearly 500 miles; most of our driving occurred on the North side of the Island, including the tropical rain forest/gardens, and going to Hilo. If you are allergic to plants avoid the rain forest/gardens! Most beautiful golf course we saw: Fairmont's. Of course, you'll take your camera--there are pictures to be taken you'll definitely want to keep.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Best restaurant for the price in this area: Merriman's, located in the Kings' Shops of Waikoloa Beach Resort. If you want to save money for some meals, consider getting your food items in Kailua-Kona, which is about a 30-minute drive from Castle Halii Kai At Waikoloa. Also, be aware that there's a difference between 100% Kona coffee and 10% Kona coffee (observe labels carefully!).

Wonderful get away

Hali'i Kai was a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. We had no plans and just wanted to relax and enjoy another island and its people. We did visit with family and friends and felt so comfortable in our unit. There was nothing more we could of needed except for more days...This was the best place that I've stayed at in Waikoloa. We are planning a return trip and will definitely stay here again.

Perfect family place

We had unit 21D, furthest from pool. The very new apartment was decorated in tasteful island style (didnt think that was possible...) and had lots of space for us. The pool was perfectly located and beautifully near the ocean and felt almost private at times (was almost low season I guess), overall the place never felt busy at all (which we loved, compared to a big hotel resort!). The food at the pool is overpriced and mediocre at best but that did not matter. Overall a great place if you travel with kids and like to have a kitchen and fridge etc. Restaurants and shopping are close by but you will probably need a car at this place to get to beaches etc. Can only recommend this.

Brilliant

Arriving after hours was not a problem, the facility and villa were very clean and quite easy to navigate. The breakfast at the pool was great, and as expected fresh pineapple was delightful. Dinner at the pool was also good, but dont go close to closing allow time to enjoy the sunset and have that extra social beverage. Cant wait to go back, this place was awesome!

allow time to visit the National Park and walk the volcanoe trails. A coffee tour is also fun, relatively quick and memorable. If you havent snorkeled before this is the place to try -go out with the Body Glove or Fair Winds boats and you will be well rewarded.

Wonderful Honeymoon

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it. The condo was spacious and beautifully decorated, the staff was friendly, and the property was lovely. Within a mile radius on the resort of Waikaloa, there are restaurants, shopping, and a white sand beach with incredible snorkeling opportunities. We stayed at the very front of the property, so we were about .8 miles from the pool, but when we drove we never had trouble finding parking. The pool was stunning, with a small waterfall, an outdoor bar and restaurant, and an outdoor fitness center nearby. We were very pleased and would definitely recommend this property, especially for the value!

Great Family Accommodations

Wonderful, clean place. Very well furnished. Minimal ammenities. Pool was nice - but not heated. Stuck my foot in, but went no further. No dining option other than pool bar, but other hotels with restaurants are nearby. If you're looking for a place to get away from it all - this is it. Very private residence, but close to restaurants and shopping when you want it.

Super experience, highly reccomend

We stayed in a 3 bdrm unit (7G) and it was spacious, immaculate and very well maintained. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bedding was comfortable, the AC was silent, there were some beach towels and fins for our use in the laundry room. The grounds were beautiful and maintained by a very friendly ground crew that smile and wave whenever they see you. The pool is really fun and on a spectacular location with a fabulous view. They have towels available for the guests and a bar that serves food. We didn't eat anything there at the resturant but we did take advantage of the grill and tables located poolside to grill up dinner a couple of times. The orientation of the pool area is perfect for watching the sunset.

There is a public beach with the entry between the King's Shopping Center and the Queen's Shopping Center. You might be able to walk to it from Halii Kai, but it would be a long walk. The beach has mixture of shade and sun, it is free, it has restroom and shower and you can walk to the adjoining Marriott to rent kayak and/or Snorkel gear. There is also sell beach sandwiches. The snorkeling offshore is just awesome: coral reef, plenty of fish, and seaturtles. Remember to wear a shirt when snorkeling (I didn't and quite a back sunburn).

Great place for a great stay

Very spacious condo with a great pool and very close to food, shops and two great beaches. If you are going for the Volcano Park it's a couple hrs away but its very close to Kailua which is a nice little town.
