75-5968 Alii Dr, Kailua-Kona

This is a small old-style Kona hotel. All rooms have incredible oceanfront views right next to the water. How close? The swimming pool is permanently salty from waves washing over the rock wall and is available 24 hours “if you behave.” The guests usually end up forming a loose family of sorts and help light the tiki torches every night. You won’t find the usual array of amenities. Missing are phones, air conditioning, TV and laundry facilities. Need a beach chair, cooler, beach towel, etc? No problem—they will gladly loan them to you, if they are available. This is a good place if you’re looking for a smashing oceanfront location, friendly staff, mostly clean, very basic room with a small shower in bathroom, and reasonable prices that will keep you coming back over and over. And their guests do—often booking two years in advance. Rooms (450 sq. ft.) are $95–$159. Kitchenettes (450 sq. ft.) are $105–$179. Studio (approx. 900 sq. ft.) is $209–$229. Rates are per couple and they charge extra for children and adults staying in the same room. 3-night minimum stay.

What Readers Have to Say

“I have never been to Hawaii and am planning a trip in August for my 13 year old daughter and myself. Reading your book and using your website has really calmed me down. Feelling like it is a good idea to go and I now think I know where to stay, eat and play because of your book.”
