- Halii Kai at WaikoloaJan 05, 2013
This is a beachfront gated resort with 63 two- and three-bedroom apartments located in the beautiful Waikoloa resort area.
Some of the units are oceanfront and some are more inland. All units have a nicely sized living room, a well-equipped kitchen, and at least two full bathrooms. I liked the decorations and rooms with updated furnishings. It was like a home away from home. The staff here were friendly and very helpful.
The facility has a tennis court, a golf course, and a swimming pool. Common facilities and the general grounds of the resort were well-maintained.
Each unit has its own garage parking. Minimum stay is two nights.
Because it is in the Waikoloa are, Queens’ Marketplace and the Kings’ Shops are close-by for shopping and dining. If this is not enough, drive down south past the airport to shop at Costco and Macy’s. Then go further into Kailua-Kona’s downtown for the farmers’ market there.

Halii Kai at Waikoloa is large. Walking from the lobby building to the swimming pool at the ocean end and back will leave you with sunburn. That said, parking is provided and it’s free. The same goes for Wi-Fi, kitchen utensils, and a full washer and dryer. It’s like living at home, only you’re in paradise.
The hotel sits near Kings’ Shops and Queens’ Marketplace, two shopping and restaurant areas that should satisfy most days. Take the car down south to Costco, the Kona Farmers’ Market and the Kona coffee plantation for my home supplies. Make use of that fully stocked kitchen!
Staff were friendly and nice. The resort is gated, so it’s more secure than some of the older hotels in other places. They do a great job maintaining the premises, evident from all the gardeners bustling about and the signs for scheduled window cleanings.
It reminds me of living in the suburbs of Hawaii. I even saw some kids riding their skateboards to the pool. It’s my childhood all over again.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Great service and facilities in each unit - no complaints! Can't beat Waikoloa sunset either. Check out the amazing fitness center with wide open views of the beautiful Kohala coast.
