Great location not too far from town but far enough away to be away from the hustle and bustle and traffic. Fantastic ocean views and breezes from the lanai. Have seen turtles and dolphins and whales from the lanai. Well decorated and comfortable condos. Have stayed at two different condos at this complex and both were great. No problems with... More

Needs updating. Bedrooms and living area have ceiling fans which are to small for the size rooms. Bathrooms are fine. Beds are not good. Dirty carpet in bedrooms. Check-in was quick and easy. Got to the room and there were no towels. Patio furniture is rusty, we refused to use it.

We recently stayed in a 3rd floor oceanfront condo at Bali Kai. This condo was absolutely perfect. The kitchen was nicely upgraded with cherry soft close cabinets and drawers and granite countertops. The sliders worked great which is a rarity in oceanfront condos (from my past stays at other condos). We had free wifi and a washer and dryer which... More

We booked a last minute trip here for our family of 20. We had 5 rooms booked through our travel agent who said everything was included in the price we paid through Expedia. We arrived 3 hours before check in, we were waiting in the lobby to see if we could leave our luggage somewhere so we could get some... More

This Condo while beachside has many units across the street from the beach a few miles outside of Kona on Ali Drive. It had one small air conditioner that was adequate for the living room, but didn't offer cooling in the bed room. The bed room cooled off at about 9pm to the point where you could sleep with shutters... More

This is the third time we have stayed and Kona Bali Kai. It is south of the hustle bustle part of Kailua Kona, but right on Alii Drive. Small beach, great view of boats, parasailing, surfers and turtles. Love the convenience of a kitchen and laundry. The Lanai is great.

Overpriced and overcharged. Staff not very helpful. If there is problem they will pass the onus to someone else.Charge extra for the cleaning your unit.. Charged for twice for my accommodation. Over a month I am waiting for them to refund the double charge and promises over the phone they will refund me but still waiting for it to happen.... More

Stayed here two weeks. Second floor condo directly on the water. Watch surfers, sea turtles, Dolphins from your lanai. Spacious 2 bed, 2 bath. Huge lanai. Pool is a little dated, but spent most of our water time at beach. The rental agent for this condo (205) is Holly. Very responsive and attentive. Great home base for exploring the Big... More

We stayed in #314 which had an ocean view. It was well appointed and had everything we needed. The bed was superb - so comfortable. We loved sitting on the lanai watching turtles in the rock pools. The complex is a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Kona - we enjoyed that. da Poke Shack downstairs had the... More

Booked this pretty last minute, mainly due to deciding to get an early flight out. I thought the price was too good to be true... And it was! $50 "Cleaning fee". For a one night stay. Payable on check-in. Isn't cleaning a pretty standard requirement for a hotel, not an optional extra! Even worse, the monosyballic receptionist didn't actually tell... More
