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.

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.

Avoid this dump.

DO NOT STAY HERE. TV didn't work, wifi didn't work, no hot water in the morning. Mentioned this to management, they didn't care. Snotty attitudes not reflective of the "aloha spirit." To top it off, the carpeting was filthy, and the mattress was so worn I could literally feel the springs underneath as I tried -- in vain -- to get a decent night's sleep. To top it all off, they have the nerve to charge $110 for cleaning and $25 for something they call a "destination fee." I wonder what they're doing with all those cleaning fees... because they sure aren't using the money for cleaning. All in, it was $268 for one night -- you can get a suite at the Hilton for that kind of money. Avoid this place, you'll be much happier.

Stayed in #303 very Clean with beautiful furnishings. Lovely two bed two bath condo with an amazing kitchen with everything needed and more. Right on the ocean nice landscaping under bldg. parking even the parking spot had a view. Close to main section of town about 2 miles walk to shopping, eating establishments, bars, and some tourist attractions. We could sit on our deck and watch the sunset, spinner dolphins, surfers what ever decided to go by. Absolutely stunning views!! Not much of a beach but close to everything.

Great for what it is

Every hotel has fine print pricing. I knew there was a cleaning fee before I booked. Great location. Conveniently located. Room was what was expected and clean. We stayed for a week and could've easily stayed longer. I would advise future travelers to call and ask questions like how late can I check in, are there any additional fees. So forth. Great stay. Would stay here again.

Maybe a better organization...

Stayed hwre for five nights. I reserved in december by booking.com,without knowing - it was not explained in the reservation - that if you use their website, you are reserving a private unity and not an apartment owned by Castle. We arrived at 6.00 pm and the reception was already closed. Ad indicated by a message in the reception window, I had to call a phone number in Honolulu to know what to do. They were not able to tell me which was my apt, so for the first night they gave us a spare room. The next morning I went to tje reception and they told me they didn't know what to tell me because they cannot know terms of reservations made by booking.com, cause they work with private owners of unities of the condo (three buildinga totally). At the end everything was resolved, but I had to call booking.com customer care in Italy, castle kona bali kai receptionist continued telling me she couldn't know anything. It would be essential them to get informerd about this kind and reservations and be helpful to guests, that are mainly customers that payed a service. We lost almost all the morning to get in our "real" unity. I am firstly disappointed by answers that the telephonic "customer care" I had to call. At the end, the apartment was ok, even if the fridge lost water all the time (it couldn't get closed well). I giove four stars anyway, because Kona is a really wonderful place to stay in.
