75-6106 Alii Dr, Kailua-Kona

Nicely furnished units, quiet, with pleasant grounds. The pool has an adjacent sandy area that’s kind of nice. The oceanfront saltwater pool mentioned on page 63 is next to the grounds. This place is run more like a hotel than a condo (but rooms are individually owned). Though some sections have four floors, the better views are from two and three since palm tree crowns can block some of the 4th-floor unit views. This is a nice resort, but the RACK rates are way too steep, and most can get a package deal or a discount. The staff is consistently pleasant here. They have a mandatory $12 “amenity” fee that gives you daily coffee, Internet, room safe, local and toll free calls and some other items. 1/1 or 1/2 units (919–1,061 sq. ft.) are $355–$474, 2/2 units (1,263 sq. ft.) are $439–$551.

What Readers Have to Say

“We just returned from a week long vacation on the Big Island. Before we take any vacation, we always search for a guidebook. This time we had the good fortune to find Big Island Revealed, 3rd edition. Of all the books that we have used on our travels, this one was the very best. We used it every day for restaurants, side trips and directions. The maps were wonderful. The book is well written, funny and always honest. (This is not always the case with guidebooks). We traveled the whole island and the book never steered us wrong.”
