Stayed in Unit 10c with my folks. Great unit only a short walk to the club (pool, gym and restaurant). Location on the Waikoloa Beach Resort was great - easy to tour the whole island from there. Club was nice, great gym with a view of humpback whales!! Pool was a bit shallow (4ft at deepest) but very pretty and... More

This is our second trip to Halii Kai and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I will say that on our first trip the pool staff were a little more strict with the kids, they seemed to have made an effort to be a little more relaxed this time around. Keep in mind that these resort pools are used by everyone... More

The Hali i' Kai is a very upscale yet relaxing gated complex north of the Hilton Waikola. The complex consists of condos which have a ground and 2 upper floors. The unit we rented is very close to the amenities and had a view of the ocean. The condos are great for cooking breakfasts or BBQing. The amenity are what... More

I stayed in condo 9D (2 BR, 2 Bath) with my 3 children and although the unit was quite clean and comfortable, the community of Waikoloa has almost NOTHING to offer and is not convenient for touring the island. The plethora of runners and the view of the golf course lead me to believe that this area might be a... More

The restaurant at the pool is also... More

The Castle Hali'i Kai is a great place in a great location. Our condo was large, immaculate and equipped with everything we needed for a Hawaii home away from home. The resort is in Waikaloa, a beautiful "community" within a short drive from Hapuna Beach and Kona. The pool is small for swimming but enough for cooling off. Besides, with... More

Condo was top notch, but pool area was not kid friendly.This resort should be rented by people with no kids or kids over the age of 15. I assure you that the conduct of the children playing in the KIDDIE pool was quite appropriate play. I feel sorry for the owners because this another negative review about this topic and... More

We stayed here for 10 nights and for the most part we were very happy with the place. The size of the condo was great. We stayed in 10F. The view was beautiful. A few things we had issues with was to say the kitchen was well equipped was a bit over exaggerated. There wasnt even a salt and pepper... More

We had booked for 3 nights in Hali’i Kai in February. We had booked for a one bedroom condo; but were upgraded to a 2 br condo - 17D. The gated community was immaculately maintained with neatly manicured lawns and gardens. The first thing that strikes you when you enter the condo is its sheer size! Even though it was... More
