We went for a sports tournament and some of the children were left in tears. They were told they couldnt make noise in the pool area or any where else. They charged us over $700 for a 4 night stay with no courtesy offered to us. Some staff were very rude and others had a "I could care less attitude"....

This was Memorial Day Weekend and there was a lot of activity at our resort throughout the days and into the night. The property was full and there were multiple groups staying at our resort. One group in particular was extremely noisy throughout the weekend. We had multiple calls about the noise at the pool and the parties late at...

This is not a typical hotel experience. Be sure you know your expectations for accomodations. We have stayed here three times and generally had a good experience, with some glitches. Upside: These are small condo units so they can provide more of an at-home experience - fully supplied kitchens, washer/dryer, etc. It's a little like staying in a friend's apartment....

We stayed two nights (21 and 22 April 2012) at the Kona Bali Kai in a studio unit across the road from the ocean. The unit was somewhat dated, but with a good bed, spacious, and with a lanai looking towards the ocean (which however was largely obscured by the main hotel building opposite). Being on a busy road there...

Stayed at this hotel with school, on a science filed trip from Australia. We thought we would have 3 to a room like we did at other places, but to our surprise they did not have rooms available for us, and we had to have 6 teenagers to a room. We had to share beds which was an inconevience. The...

We knew we were staying in an older condo and chose this because of the location and that it had two bed/two baths. But, we were very disappointed with the condition of the condo. The good: The view is awesome and right on the water. We sat on the lanai most of the time while in the condo so we...

If you want oceanfront at an affordable cost, this complex is likely for you. We stayed for almost three weeks in a unit on the second floor. While the unit was very '70's in decor, the beds were very good; it was FULLY stocked with new towels, bedding, and kitchenware. It had (2) flatscreen televisions. But, the problem with Kona...

Very old rooms that are in bad condition. Actual hotel is on the ocean but the condo rooms are across a busy highway. Due to highway noise, sitting on the lanai or even having the doors open is impossible. There is no ocean access. Room is very noisy. TV is impossible to watch unless you are on the bed. No...

We were only here for a night, then moved on to another hotel. Our unit was clean and taken care of. We had an ocean front view. The staff are particularly unfriendly and rude. Didn't really feel like a welcoming place to stay, so we moved on to a hotel down the road. Our condo itself was nice though. It...
