Love the location, and the close proximity to surf and sand (and sun). Have stayed there several times. My one and only request is that the hotel restore/rebuild the foot ramp that leads down into turtle cove (northwest corner of property, and a premiere snorkeling area). The lower section of the ramp has apparently washed away in recent months, and... More

I'd rather pay one price, even if that were say, $30 per day more, than be hit with an onslaught of nickel and dime extras when I check in. After a long day of travel, just valet the damn car, set me up with wireless, give me the room I thought I was paying for and let me start my... More

This was our first time to this hotel and area. We came from Maui(Sheraton). The beach and location is amazing!!! The hotel staff is so so. I had called the hotel two weeks prior and asked for a goodie basket when we checked in because it was my husband's birthday. They said no problem. When I got there, they were... More

What a beautiful property on one of the most beautiful beaches on Hawaii! The rooms are so spacious and inviting. There is great snorkeling available on the right side of the beach as well. The staff at the beach bar were very friendly and took great care of us! Can't wait to visit again.

A lovely design, open air breeze ways, ocean views, friendly staff. At this price, I would have expected free wi-fi, a newspaper at the room door, and to go or leftover containers not made of styrofoam. Also the pool was only 4 feet deep everywhere, leading it to be a tepid swim. The poolside bar and eatery was only open... More

Breathtaking views, great service, nice clean room. Food was good although they would benefit from additional restaurant options. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be staying here again.

When I checked in to this hotel, the desk agent could not find my prepaid reservation and left me waiting for some time while he searched, until I finally provided a printout and got a room. I then spent 40 minutes on the telephone with Hotwire, asking them to assure the hotel that my room was paid for, which they... More

From our arrival up to our impending departure tomorrow, this resort provided us with a perfect base to enjoy the big island for the first time. Other travelers recommendations to be in tower 3 were appreciated, it's a stunning view. Our concierge, Crosby took wonderful care of us, helping us to sift and sort through a myriad of options for... More

Beautiful and luxurious rooms with beach views and cool ocean breezes. Large pool and steps to one of the best beaches on the Big Island. Whale watching every morning and evenings. Gorgeous sunsets. 5 star staff and amenities. Highly recommend this hotel!
