My wife, Faye, and I celebrated our 40th anniversary at Alii Kai this past July. The new units were beautiful...as advertised...but the true beauty of our stay was the sincere way Shana Davis greeted and catered to our every need...for our two week stay. She cared. She provided us with the same unit for our full two weeks...without us even... More

We stayed at this resort because of an RCI time share trade-in. This was, hands down, our favorite accommodation for our three week stay in Hawaii. The resort was remodeled recently using top materials and excellent design. All the appliances were brand-new. The kitchen has more counter space than my own at home! We had beautiful country-side views. We slept... More

This review is for Grand Pacific Resorts @ Alii Kai II, which were just recently renovated and wow what an incredible transformation. We have been timeshare owners here for about 5 years and really marveled at the huge upgrade seen throughout the condos. Night and day difference. Someone mentioned that the design and quality of the condo renovations are nicer... More

Maybe I missed something in these reviews or maybe my group is the only group that has trouble sleeping, cooking and eating in the heat of an enclosed building. It is actually cooler outside than inside the condo even with the fans on. No one seems to mention that none of the condos have any air conditioning. The actual condo... More

This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on the northwest corner of building 5. It is on the third floor with great views from the balcony overlooking the ocean as well as back toward the mountains. (Ground level is the second floor, so you really only have to climb up one flight.) The condo is furnished in "tropical casual"... More

If I counted right, there are 14 buildings at Alii Kai. Approximately half are on the ocean and have fantastic views. The others have mountain views and if you don't explore you won't even know where the ocean is. The good units are identified by 4 numbers. The others are identified by the building and a letter. Most, if not... More

We spent last week at the Ali'i Kai Resort and had a wonderful time. Shana was extremely helpful, check-in was a breeze. The unit was very dated, but that being said, it was extremely clean, comfortable and spacious. We had more than enough room for 2 couples. They had nice extra touches like tin foil and Saran Wrap, made it... More
