Unit #413 of Hale Kona Kai: The first impression was of the strong chemical odor of the cleaning chemicals used in the condo. But after opening the windows and doors to let the great sea air in it wasn't a problem. This is a very, very basic condo that could use an update, but was totally acceptable because it was clean and we enjoyed the lanai so much, which was over the ocean. We turned the ac off each night and opened the windows to the the sound of the waves. The king size bed is on the hard side. We have usually stayed further north but this was a nice change in the heart of Kona. Close by we recommend Kahalu'u Beach Park for snorkeling, UFO for parasailing, Jack's Diving, Lava Java for breakfast and music, and Splasher's Grill for the view, service, and wonderful coconut shrimp and chowder.
