We spent a week there at the end of October and loved it. We had amazing ocean views and sunsets and got to watch surfers play all day. It was a great home away from home with a full kitchen, our unit had a washer/dryer...More
The oceanfront one-bedroom unit we stayed in had a fabulous view and lanai. Listening to the waves crash during the night made for restful sleep. The sea turtles swam in the lagoon right below our lanai every day and were a highlight of the trip....More
We staying here for 3 nights. The master bedroom has an ocean view, and you can still hear the ocean in the second bedroom. The veranda is a great space to wake up and watch the birds and ocean activity. Full kitchen makes it nice...More
We had an Ocean Front, 1 Bedroom Suite and we would stay again. Nothing special and some respects kinda old and aging room and building. But, the view was fantastic. The cost of eating out in Kona is pretty high so having the kitchen was...More
I have visited Kona Bali Kai twice in the last year and have had a wonderful time on both occasions. I always recommend this resort to friends and relatives. There's good parking and the security personnel are helpful and curteous.

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.
