We stayed at two of the condos at Halii Kai in April 2012 - one ocean view and one fairway view - and loved our time there despite some elements that would deter some.
The views from the ocean view were incredible - you could sit on the lanai for hours and watch the ocean and its inhabitants (and kayakers/ paddleboarders). The fairway view wasnt spectatcular but was still a great outlook.
The grounds are beautiful - well maintained, established gardens that epitomise the feel of the tropics, and right on the ocean.
There are also great (core) facilities - pools, tennis courts etc. However, if you want a hotel with bars and restaurants etc you will be disappointed.
The interiors vary - according to owners,so as many of these reviews suggest, it is helpful to request a particular room. The two we stayed in were both roomy (say 1400sq ft) and comfortable with Hawaiian style furniture. But as mentioned elsewhere, theacoustics of the building were poor, and the kitchens can be dated.
So, it depends what you want. If you want an escape where you are happy to cook, and stay/ relax in a serene environment, close to water and not too far from town, then Kanaloa is perfect. If you want 6 star, this is not the place for you.
