Synopsis: Overall we had a great experience. We were able to change condos after one week to a much nicer unit - 7 nights in one and 10 nights in the second. In each case the oceanview experience was exceptional. The condos are a little tired because they are older but if your condo has been cared for it will...

Our 2 bedroom was beautiful and well equipped. The lanai ocean view is spectacular. While having dinner one night we were treated to a spectacular whale show just off shore. See turtles and other sea life right outside the building.

We stayed on the "mountain" side, across a fairly busy street, from the lobby and ocean view condos. I had read the reviews and knew what we were in for, but we booked late and this was about all I could find. This is the only condo I've ever stayed in with my main goal being to get away from...

f you want a nicer than average condo, in a great location, with an amazing lanai literally just a few feet from the ocean--this is it! When we sat back further on the big lanai, we couldn't even see land, just the ocean--that's how close it is to the water. Everything you need (laundry, kitchen, 2 BR/2 BA, even beach...

Hotel is 3 miles outside city center. Not really within walking distance. Staff was very particular about check in time being precisely at 3:00. Made us wait 4 minutes by stating the room was not ready. Then shift change at 3 and suddenly our room was ready. Room had head hair on top cover. Hotel is converted 70's apartments. Cheaper...

Our room was a partial ocean view suite, it was located across Ali'i drive from the main hotel. Traffic noise was terrible. The room was outdated and in bad need of some renovations. The bed was sagged into the middle so bad that even though it was a king size bed we always ended up in the middle. A lot...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Kona Bali Kai. Our condo was lovely and the service we received was great. The individuals at the front desk were helpful, the women who touched up our condo, mid stay, were warm and friendly, and the view was spectacular. We will definitely return to the Kona Bali Kai and will recommend it...
