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...More
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 The room was outdated and in bad need of some renovations.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...More

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...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.
