We stayed two nights (21 and 22 April 2012) at the Kona Bali Kai in a studio unit across the road from the ocean. The unit was somewhat dated, but with a good bed, spacious, and with a lanai looking towards the ocean (which however...More

Stayed at this hotel with school, on a science filed trip from Australia. We thought we would have 3 to a room like we did at other places, but to our surprise they did not have rooms available for us, and we had to have...More
We knew we were staying in an older condo and chose this because of the location and that it had two bed/two baths. But, we were very disappointed with the condition of the condo.
The good: The view is awesome and right on the water....More
If you want oceanfront at an affordable cost, this complex is likely for you. We stayed for almost three weeks in a unit on the second floor. While the unit was very '70's in decor, the beds were very good; it was FULLY stocked with...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.
