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.

Stunning ocean views
This condo was incredibly beautiful. Loved waking up to drink my coffee on the Lanai and watching the surfers. Condo has air conditioning and elevators. Pool was great too. Was close to town and airport. Would stay here again.
No Air Conditioning
Ocean side units have no air conditioning. Units are older. Pros - Comes with a complete kitchen and 2 full bathrooms. Unit is pretty spacious. Good value for a family of 4 (if you use the sofa bed). Cons - Unit was old. Sofa bed was dusty. We came in late so pretty self serve on the check in (a security guard gave us the lockbox code). No air conditioning.
Get ocean view
Great place. I have stayed both mountain view studio and oceanfront 2 bedroom. Highly recommend the ocean view condo. The mountain view you have to walk across the street to the lobby and pool/spa.the 2 bedroom condo was amazing,clean, and great for a family. The pool is heated just to the right temperature and the hot tub was amazing at night when settling down from a busy day. The picture is the view from our condo.
Be careful, the info given to us said they had elevators. They only have elevators in part of the property, So, if you have trouble with stairs, make sure you are in the correct spots. They tried to be helpful, but it was after dark and raining, so the process was difficult. Property seems a little run down. PLus, be very sure what unit you get if it does or does not have air conditioning.
Terrible dump stay away, nothing like the pictures, no A/C in the rooms and very deteriouted place, run down furniture. ceiling fans dont work, you can t leave windows open cause bugs come in so you cant enjoy the ocean view from outdoor balcony, scary looking place its not a resort its more like ghetto apartments they should not call it a resort and you have to pay all these cleaning fees they very bad experience the hotel didnt refund my money as they said they will stay away pay somewhere else
