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.

It’s wonderful to be right on the ocean to see the surfers and the green turtles that come right up on the beach. The grounds are well maintained. With all the sea salted air there are some upgrades that could be done to the Lanais. The sunsets are spectacular! If you get a completely clear horizon when the sun goes down, look for the green flash.

My room was very clean and had amazing views of the ocean. Lori at the front desk was awesome and provided great customer service. Perfectly located and a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Hawaii.

Average accommodation, poor front desk

I realize you get what you pay for however; with $200 cdn. $160 usd in addition to tax added, I do have some minimum customer expectations. Cons: 1. I booked through an online site and was bill by both the hotel and the online provider. Instead of sorry we will refund you the money we entered a two hour dialog, about who's fault it was. More staff training is needed. I hearing the front desk lady argue with the internet provider that their terms of agreement are incorrect. The issue was resolved after 2 hrs of having the bank, internet provider and manager all agreed the issue was a front desk issue. Very stressful first day of a holiday. 2. The guy following was chaged $160 + $85 cleaning fee for a one night stay. Read the small print!! 3. The location is on it's own beach which is nice but it 6 km to Coconut Grove the closest shopping center so if your on foot the trolley comes every 2 hours and its $2 a person which is helpful. 4. UBER is $10 to any location from this complex 5. front desk couldn't find a key to the safe making it useless Pros: 5. Pool is average but clean so that is nice and the hot tub is small, but most people don't use it. 6. Good free room internet and parking if you can rent a car

Surprisingly good.

Room was clean, across the road from main building. Had partial ocean view and a/c so was comfortable. Front desk staff was pleasant and accommodating and had no issues. Needed to use house phone in front of main building to phone call center for late night check in but that went well with no issues. Map of complex right beside phone made it easy to find unit. Wifi was free and parking included.

We stayed 10 days and explored all over the island. However, our condo was in about the best location and view on the island. Small little beach area out the back. Lots of surfers to watch too. Since these are primarily individually owned condos rented out each will be different levels of up keep. We stayed in #303. All the furniture was new and the kitchen up dated. All you need to provide is you food. Internet, tv, washer & dryer, beach chairs, boogie board, etc.
