Just came back from 4day stay at Pali Ke Kua Room 103. Wow...what a slice of Paradise. This room had an amazing view of the ocean and Bali Hai. We woke up every morning to the sound of the surf and enjoyed an incredible view of the sunset each evening. "Hideaway beach" is directly below the property with a private... More

Was very concern about Condo prior to arrival premised on several very Tripadvisor negative reviews. Our experience was very positive. The condo had stunning views and sunsets with Bali Hai as the back drop! The unit itself was large, up to date and clean. Yes there is no maid service, no valet parking, no in room services that you would... More

Our family stayed at Pali Ke Kua for three nights in July and had three units all on different ends of the property. The reservations were made in October, reconfirmed in April and beginning of July,and when we arrived we did not receive the correct units. There were 11 of us consisting of a family of four, one of five... More

We have only been here two nights, but I already feel compelled to write this review to let others know what I wish I knew before booking. We are in unit 124. First the good news: The views are as advertised. We have an ocean view condo and it is really lovely to look out over the grassy lawn and... More

The view was fantastic from the lanai. But, that's where it ends. We stayed here for the Memorial Day holiday with my in laws. The sheets smelled bad and the beds were grungy. The carpet was old, the bathroom towels were very rough and "well used." Kitchen was recently remodeled, which was ok. Our first night there yielded little sleep... More

I booked this condo online with a special 1/2 off price and was pleasantly surprised with the accommodations, everything was good. Our unit was on the point overlooking the ocean and received the PERFECT sunset views! Well stocked unit needing nothing else. The furniture is definitely dated but was comfortable. The units were built in the 70's and were updated... More

Our room had clearly seen better days...bugs everywhere, dated furniture and a tired mattress, grimy carpets and bath towels that were probably about 20 yrs old. But the view over Hanalei bay was stupendous. If it weren't for the mosquitos, my family probably would have been better off sleeping on the lanai (it is, after all, what you're paying for... More

We stayed at the Hale Moi condos. The condo was nice, had a gorgeous mountain view. You could watch the waterfalls multiply after the rain swept through and was amazing. The condo was clean and a reasonalbe price for the area. It was very quiet and in great walking distance to Queens Bath and hidden beaches, both of which was... More

Beautiful ocean view. Clean at first glance but after a second look, this place has been seriously neglected. Louvered doors in the bedroom were disgustingly grimy. Kitchen cabinets needed a thorough cleaning. Upholstered furniture was threadbare. Needed a paint job several years ago. Patio furniture was equally beat up. Lots of potential due to fabulous location but definitely needs work.

We stayed here in April for three days. We booked thru Kauaicalls dot com. There are many pros and few cons. First this is a studio. And sleeps two on very nice queen bed. A studio has no kitchen or kitchenette. I think the couch is a fold out. This would be crowded with four people. So it is a... More
