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.

Kona Bali Kai Condo
mjtravel2017, Ontario, Canada
Wed Sep 19 14:18:17 EDT 2018
We had the opportunity to rent a condo in this resort. It is literally steps away from the ocean. Turtles sunbathing on lava rocks. The resort has all the enmities required. And the Poke Shack is on site. Who could ask for anything more. Very special place to stay.

Its all about the view!

Stayed here two weeks ago and hated to leave the room as we were treated to incredible views in all the mornings and nights. At the last minute we decided to upgrade to the ocean view room and it was worth the extra money. The bad news is the ocean sided rooms do not have air conditioning so be prepared to get creative to stay cool (back door open, fans running in bedroom sucking air from balcony to open panels in bedroom worked for us). Be sure you get there from 3 to 5 pm to check in as I read it can get challenging for after hours check ins. We ran out of toilet paper towards the end of the week and the office was closed. The maintenance man helped us out and got as an industrial size roll to get us through the end of our stay. The only problem we had was I thought the floor was dirty in places and would make things better if we didn't have to run around in sandals (I will stay here again in January and let office know or go buy a cheap mop as the view makes up for a little inconvenience - our fault for not telling front desk) Oh and did I mention the view?

Room filthy! Had to clean kitchen to cook

We chose this condo because it had a full kitchen and the pictures were beautiful. When we arrived, after hours on a Sunday we were shocked at the condition of the room. When staff arrived on Monday morning, i was told to take pictures which i did. I was told they were full as were the other hotels as it was Spring Break, which we did not realize. The room had not been deep cleaned in years! Th carpet was filthy, grease and dirt was all along the kitchen floor baseboard and the stove had greasy rust along edges. A huge black mildew stain was over the refrigerator. Transoms above the front door was filthy and rotten, black and covered in dust. All glass lamps had dust caked on them The sliding doors to the bedroom were splattered with something and dust hung from the ceiling. I had to scour the kitchen and wash all dishes and utensils prior to using. We had to use the bedspread to cover the couch as it was so dirty it was shiny and throw pillows were falling apart. When i returned to the checkin desk, the woman manning the desk just happened to be the Regional Manager for the hotel chain. Ms Linnett looked at the pictures and apologized saying they ere unable to deep clean due rooms being booked 24/7. She offered the reduce the rat to $50.00 per night which i agreed to. Upon arriving home, I spoke to Expedia, which planned our trip. They told me she offered a $50.00 per night discount, not $50.00 per night. The room was not even worth that! Expedia did not help or offer a refund of any sort. They gave us a $200.00 credit for future trips. Our total package was about $6000.00 for 18 days. The flight tickets were $451.00 pp which was 2. All other funds were for the hotel and cancellation insurance. We believe we were treated very poorly and Ms. Linnett would not return phone calls or e-mails. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! DO NOT STAY HERE. I had MIGRAINES almost every day due to the mold and mildew.

Oceanfront condo . amazing view

I have stayed 2 times at Kona Bali Kai. first time unit 411 which is privately owned and the second as part of a vacation package. Both times the view was amazing. There is a nice pool on site with outdoor shower. although some units are in better shape than others my experience so far has been very good. The views from the lanai's are awesome. the entire 10 days here in July we kepot the screen doors wide open 24/7. no need for TV when you have the ocean and a super view of the surfers in action.

Very nice room with great features

We stayed here for 6 nights and it was a great base for exploring Big Island. Our room had a very well equipped kitchen, so we made breakfast every morning (and saved some money that way haha) and they even had beach chairs and umbrellas. Location is nice (by the ocean) but to get around on this island I would strongly recommend a rental car! The hotel has got a pool but we never used it.
