The unit we stayed in, 203, was well organized, and nicely furnishes. The king and queen beds were comfortable. The kitchen is new and has a high quality dishwasher. Great views and designated parking under the units.

REVIEW IS SPECIFIC TO UNIT 310, CASTLE KONA BALI KAI. Each unit is individually owned and therefore different. It’s with great regret that I must rate this particular unit with two stars. If it weren’t for the fact that cleanliness is at the very top of our list of priorities, it would be rated higher, if it weren’t for the...

Great location overlooking the ocean - no beach (#318); however shabby interior and furnishing, barebones supplies and questionable housekeeping. Had to request kitchen linens. Reception desk seemed to tolerate guests and not very welcoming.

After reading other reviews, I can only believe that there is a wide variety of quality,upkeep and cleanliness of the room at this property. I don't mind accommodations that are not updated as long as they are clean and well maintained. This met none of those requirements. It was dated, dirty, shabby and poorly maintained. The room smelled musty, the...

I had phoned ahead to confirm check in procedure as I had read there is not a 24 hour front desk. So I was glad I had clarified the procedure. We arrived quite late so it was a little confusing to figure it all out in the dark but we managed ok. We had booked a 2 bedroom with king,...

We stayed in a 3rd Floor Condo with ocean front lanai. 2 beds, 2 baths, and a pull out sleeper sofa. The building itself is obviously very dated so don't expect the Ritz. What it is however, is comfortable. You get to relax without feeling the pressure to be reserved and refined. The kitchen was wonderful - we had every...

My wife and I have stayed at this location several times and always had a great experience. Each unit has been different as each has a different owner. We have stayed in two different studios in the past and a two bedroom (room 205) this time with another couple. Each unit has had everything we needed and more. The best...

After waiting for what seemed like an eternity, we were finally booked into our room. The receptionist had a 'couldn't care less' attitude, and when I told her we were going to be late for the tours that we'd just travelled over 3 hours to attend, she just chuckled. I repeatedly gave her my booking name and she repeatedly advised...

We booked 10 nights stay trough Expedia for a family of four. We arrived after 8 pm and front desk was closed. Someone gave us the keys to the condo (room 366) and were told to check in next day. We booked a room with one bed and one sofa bed but when we got to the room there were...

This is an ownership Condo complex managed by Castle so each condo is different. I got a good rate from Google via Castle website and called and booked over the phone directly with Castle. I had a pleasant experience booking with the agent for a "partial ocean view" 15 days before our trip. We are 2 adults and 1 6.5...
