Great location across the street from great snorkeling! Enjoyed the spaciousness of the condo, with four adults staying in a one-bedroom unit -- nicely updated. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Loads of DVD rentals. Loved the pool and hot tub. Great ocean views from the lanai and nightly sunset-watching just across the road. Groceries a bit pricey at Kukui'ula, but... More

Lawai Beach Resort has rentals as well as time shares. We stay in the Banyan building with 2 bedrooms/2 baths. Fully furnished kitchen, living room, dining room, plus bedrooms and baths. The ocean is across the street. Best sunsets are seen from this area. Rentals through Hawaiian Time Share.

Almost all of the excellent reviews come from those staying at the Banyon or All' buildings. Try staying in a two bedroom on the bottom floor of the Coral. One bathroom for four adults, no ocean view, no washer and dryer in unit, noise from the parking valets at the restaurant across the street using Lawaii Beach parking. Did I... More

Aloha, Thank you for your review of the Coral building. While Coral is our oldest building it is a very well kept building. The first floor units open up to the beautiful landscape. While not all have an ocean view, one can take a short walk (approx. 2 minutes) and be on the beach. I apologize that you did not... More

Great location. Property is a little dated but maintained very well. Even though it was very sold out it never seemed crowded or noisy. Probably designed more for adults. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A plus was we were never approached about a timeshare. Rooms were excellent size & clean.

My husband and I stayed here with our 8 month old son. Although I can't comment on whether the price is worth it (we used my husband's grandmother's timeshare to stay here), I can say we loved our time here and would return in a heartbeat. All the staff members I interacted with were friendly, smiley and helpful. The resort... More

We have returned to this lovely spot for years. Panoramic views of the ocean from most rooms. Excellent snorkeling and surfing right across the road. Rooms comfortably furnished. Kitchens well appointed. Staff gracious and helpful. Whole resort beautifully maintained.

The hotel is a very easy drive from the airport, and there is nice shopping nearby. We were assigned a two bedroom unit on the second (top) floor of the Lika Lani building. It was a... More
