So we've been coming to Kona Bali Kai 3 times in 4 years and that is because we love the layout of the condos, the location of the complex, the free parking, just about everything is perfect for our stay. I don't normally post poor...More
It is very old and need updated. Stayed in studio across street and was to have mountain view but the only thing I could see was in someones house window. I would not stay at this place again. There is too many other nicer hotels...More

We did a late check in due to flight arrival and were greeted with needing to make a phone call to an off island operator who had a hard time directing us to our unit. This was planned as a one night stay until our...More
First CKBK is not a hotel, no maid service, no elevator or bellman. At check in I was informed of a undisclosed cleaning fee of $104. After paying for 5 nights $940 for a ocean view, I have never experienced this. We were given a...More

I think they have a cleaning fee schedule on their website. It depends on the size of the unit and the length of stay. But yes, believe what the hotel quotes you. I stay for 2 nights in a studio so my cleaning fee was $40... More

The Kona Bali Kai is a 55 year old building (how else could we build this close to the ocean?) and with the salt water influence, more maintenance is always required. In fact we call the ocean front building a "ship that never sails". Without maintenance, guests would complain about condition as well. I would like to point out that only a few have complained about construction noise, but often those are the most vocal. Many people have left wonderful reviews.
Having stated that, owners do try to advise of construction and have new policies in place to notify neighbors. The truth is that construction schedules can change on a dime.
There are several alternatives. You may rent a hotel room at an oceanfront resort. They will charge more but will have options to move you. You may rent from Castle Resorts at the Kona Bali Kai. The charge is not quite as high but they may be able to move you to another area. Castle Resorts has a pool of rooms. If you are renting from a private owner, they usually only have one condo to rent so may not be able to move you. Check the policy set by the owner or Castle Resorts, in the event construction starts up near you.
Noisy construction has limited hours on weekdays and weekends and often visitors are out and about enjoying the island.
I hope this information helps you make an informed decision.
