Situated at the ocean's edge, Castle Kona Bali Kai offers a unique lodging experience in the sunniest spot on Hawaii's Big Island. You can pull up a lounge chair where white sand and black lava rock mingle among tide pools. Enjoy the shade of palm trees will you listen to the surf. If you are lucky, you might spot a Hawaiian green sea turtle grazing in the water or sleeping in the sand. The lava rocks shield the beach from waves and help to create small wading pools ideal for children.

Castle Kona Bali Kai has affordable, airy, and comfortable studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom oceanfront suites on the makai (ocean) side, as well as studio and one-bedroom units with ocean or mountain views on the mauka (mountain) side. Makai units are cooled with fans and the consistent ocean breeze, while most mauka units have air conditioning. Many of the units have a washer/dryer and there is an onsite laundromat for your convenience. Keep your kitchen stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables via the Island Grocery Delivery service, or from nearby Alii Garden's Marketplace. There is also a convenience store located just next door. If you are in the mood to cook, you will have access to multiple barbeques on the property, some with oceanfront views overlooking the tide pools.

On-site amenities include Miller's Surf Shop, the award winning Poke Shack (serving incredible fresh poke!), and a discount activities desk. The friendly front-desk staff can help you with your needs and give you the inside tips for "local" knowledge.

Almost every day ends with a spectacular sunset, so you can understand why Alii was the avenue of Hawaii's royalty. As you look for your special Kona condo, remember that Castle Kona Bali Kai provides endless adventures in any direction.

Loved it! Great location!

This hotel/resort was sensational. It's a little older and no aircon in the apartment we had but it didn't matter, we just left the doors open and the sea breeze each night cooled the place down beautifully. It was spacious enough and is literally right on the water, there is about ten metres of grass then the ocean. Our balcony over looked the ocean and we had amazing sun sets every night. It is quite close to a good little swimable surf beach that are quite rare around kona. It's about 4 and a bit kms from the centre of town which is an easy flat walk. Has great parking under the accommodation which was very beneficial. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed and the appliances all worked well. The pool was warm and the outside bbq was well maintained and clean.

This is nothing like a resort a total dunp old apartments i checked out the same day it was a aweful scary experience no A/C, bugs in room and something wrapped in plastic like a dead person under bed we call the resort number on oir paper they said they didnt rent us the room and im like im in it and i tried other numbers & didnt get any help they hung up on me acted mean and rude cause it was a non occupied room so its nothing like a resort its all ghetto stay away pay more else where i was merely in the room like 30 minutes or less after calling for help so call Orbitz and left immediately they didnt refund me the first night stay even though the lady who checked me at front desk said she will refund me all nights and sorry for my bad experience cause that she had checked me in the prior day cause i went back to make sure she knew i left the prior day she didn’t understand how i disappeared from thier computer hm kind of shady experience but they did refund me the 5 nights, & $145 cleaning fee,, & $25 destination fee but this place is nothing like the piictures too rundown and it had a note by door no shoes allowed inside the aprtment

Agreed with all reviews , needed to clarify the cleaning fee

This place,in fact,is not the hotel,just vacation condo and please be sure about misleading in pictures advertising on websites. The buildings are old, and pool is ok but need more msintenance, restroom in the laundry is too smells and filthy. I GOT THE PROMO mountain view room , unit171 but it is surprisigly pricey cleaning fee which the management must be much better with this price. Housekeeping rules are also making me annoyed about newly clean linen or towels, need additional cost. Only one good thing is location that the unit on the main building facing the ocean, easy to go to kona town by using kona trolley,if you don't rent car. Bathtub in my room is not function ,esp. The shower, hot water need time to be as hot as I want,esp. in the morning.if you are looking for budget price, please be careful about the value of money that you have to pay real , esp. additional amazingly pricey cleaning fee. Oe else, you book the reliable brand of hotels and resorts.

Gorgeous view !

I was very pleasantly surprised with our one bedroom ocean view room . The condo was very clean .. the view was gorgeous! The price was great ! I loved the beach area in front of the condo’s . My husband surfed out there every day . I never used the pool but it looked well kept . Grounds were well kept as well . There was a small ice chest in the condo and some snorkeling hear . The only thing I think this condo could use to make it five star rating would be some beach chairs and beach towels ...other than that everything was absolutely perfect . Low key no frills but updated and clean ! Service desk staff very friendly. We will stay here again !

Cheaper is not always good.

We booked a reasonably priced 1 bed room facing the mountain side and what we got was a old 1 room musty smelling unit facing a parking lot. This room wasn't even in the main hotel it was down the road across the street.. It cost extra to have someon clean your room or if you needed a fresh towel. Residents live here so you get woken up starting at 5am when they leave for work. Don't plan on sleeping in past 7am because you'll be woken up by a leaf blower! We will never stay here again and I will let all my friends and family know not to either..
