    Who doesn’t want to wake up to crashing waves and warm weather with the aloha spirit?

    Comfortable oceanside bungalows with easy access to the beach, two pools and a fun local luau! The hotel staff are friendly and helpful sharing great places to visit and eat. Who doesn’t want to wake up to the sound of crashing waves and warm weather?

    Beautiful Location, Cottages Sub Par - Stay in the main hotel which is nice, Charges/Deposit Questionable

    This hotel is quite beautiful for the most part and the location is superb, but they have some rooms, (cottages) which are terrible and won't be upgraded for two years; we were told. We upgraded to the main hotel which was quite nice. Their deposit/hold charges are not handled well. We were charged two separate amounts on two different days which did not add up to the amount we were told would be held (they were less) but they have not been removed from my credit card yet. My overall experience here, despite there being several positives (great staff) beautiful location, and a laundry facility, would not convince me to come back.

    30th Anniversary Celebration!!

    Chose this resort because of great reviews from friends. 3 couples spending 10 days relaxing and celebrating our 30th anniversary. Everything about this place was great… The staff was friendly and attentive. We had rooms in the cottages every amenities and access was top-flight. We will return someday and we will be coming back to this place.

    Huge Disappointment

    We came here for our honeymoon and opted to pay more for our stay hoping for a luxury experience for our once in a lifetime trip. We booked the deluxe garden bungalow, but it was anything but deluxe. A few minutes after arrival, we found a cockroach crawling across the floor. Thankfully we called and they were able to get us to a room in the tower that did have a nice view. They worked with us on that, however the new room had an odd smell of urine near the fridge and sink area, and you could tell the room hadn't been deep cleaned in awhile. We also went to the Luau while we were here and it was the worst food we had on our entire trip. The pool is very nice, and staff was nice, but no one even offered to go above and beyond on our honeymoon. We are so disappointed that we paid as much as we did and this was our experience. We would have been better off spending 10% of the cost and staying anywhere else. The beach is beautiful, so location is all this place has going for it.

    Excellent...Doubt erased

    Was Leary about staying after reading some reviews, however our stay was excellent. We stayed in tower which was central to all on the property. Restaurant was great...although food and drinks a bit pricey. ......but it is Hawaii. Concierge was excellent. Set up road to Hana; kayaking; snorkeling and we rented car to drive to top of volcano. Clean, great service, 2 pools and easy access to beach. Paradise!! Bartenders, wait staff and employees all friendly and helpful. Recommend to anyone!
