The resort is beautiful and steps from the beach! We have a 1 bedroom for my mom and I works perfect. Only complaint air conditioning doesn't exist. There are 3 pools, gym, and putt putt golf. The complex is mixed with families and older people. If looking for a late night area this isn't the place for you! Island shuts... More

The best part of LBR is the location. It's on the sunny south side, which means it is roughly in the "center" in terms of travel time to the two ends of the highway. Those poor folks staying up in Princeville have quite a drive to get to Waimea Canyon, but you're a leisurely drive away! There's not much need... More

Another great timeshare experience. Close to everything. Nicely decorated condo. The views are spectacular. 3 pools to keep cool. Only downside is no air-conditioning but we adjusted. We watched surfboarding and snorkeling from our lanai. We stayed in the Banyon building on the 2nd floor. Would recommend that building and floors 2-4 to get a nice breeze. Aloha.

This is our second time at Lawai Beach Resort and we love it here! Located on the south shore of Kawaii and right across the street from the most well known snorkeling area. Rooms are filled with everything you will need for your stay and the washers and dryers make vacationing so much easier. There is always something going happening... More

No air conditioning so the room will be hot even if you are lucky enough to get some of the wind. It has a great view but it's not worth being in a room that is uncomfortable. If they added ac to the bedrooms it would be a much better stay. They might not think ac is needed but others... More

Stayed in the Alii building in a 1 bedroom/1 bath condo. It had a complete kitchen and laundry and the view can't be beat. We were there in August and never saw one bug. The facility is kept up to date and is very clean. It can be rented through the Hawaii Timeshare Exchange and I already have a future... More

While pictures of the resort are enticing, they are misleading. We traveled in mid-July at a time when the humidity was high. The resort has no AC in the rooms. The front desk has AC, the workout room has AC (areas where the staff work), but the guests must be content with floor fans. Sleep was a constant issue. It... More

If you like snorkeling and sunsets you cannot stay at a better place! It is truly the best location I have ever stayed on this island - and I have stayed many times on both sides! But I want to add about the staff- this IS a timeshare although some people are just renting from owners. That said unlike other... More

My mom has a timeshare here and I've been often. It never disappoints. This is not a huge resort! This is a "home away from home" sort of place. The units are large and comfortable. The décor is very Hawaiian and beautiful and clean. The main pool is really pretty (they have redone it since my last visit so I'm... More
