From the moment we arrived the service was outstanding. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. There is a free welcome breakfast to use on either of the first 2 mornings of your stay. Aside from being entertained they also take this opportunity to inform you about any tours etc they are able to arrange for you. The location... More

Currently in the hotel which we booked through expedia. Apparently there is small print in the booking that states that a king bed is a request not a commitment and depends on availability. Wife and I have a vacation in separate beds as a consequence also scenic view means a view of mini golf and inside of hotel not sea... More

Great spot on Kaanapali Beach. Stayed a week, and loved every minute of it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, and kept that way. Some of the wings allow guests to smoke on the first floor lanais. Said smoke can drift, so if that bugs you, be aware. Breakfast buffet is ok. Ordering off the menu is... More

Found this wonderful place by accident, cannot wait to go back. This is a privately owned hotel that treats guests like people, not a room number! An older facility, comfortable and not fancy, grounds well maintained, and just steps from the beach. Close to dining, and short drive to Lahaina. Staff are great, nice, friendly and Hawaiian! Good facilities, easy... More

Spent 10 nts here and enjoyed everything about this wonderful resort! The location cannot be beat, the beach is amazing, Service outstanding! The tiki bar is so much fun! Breakfast included made our stay so relaxing with no need to rush out to find cheap food! Hawaiian music and dancers end the night perfectly! I will not stay anywhere else!!

We were here 10yrs ago for our 25th wedding anniversary and this week for our 35th. I can honestly say nothing has changed except the prices. I can probably say that it has gone down some. The internet system is horrible to say the least. It is almost non-existant in the rooms. You have to go to the courtyard where... More

This is an average hotel and is starting to show it's age. However, the staff was awesome, the room was comfortable, and the grounds very nice. Nothing pretentious here. The tiki bar had very reasonable prices for drinks, especially for the location, and there was a real friendly vibe amongst the customers and the bartender - Dale, you are the... More

Aloha!! My wife and I stayed at this hotel on our 32nd anniversary, April-16-23 2015, it was our first trip to Hawaii. We found the staff to be super friendly, and courteous. We weren't sure why it is called the most Hawaiian hotel but it's probably because all the staff seemed to be truly of Hawaiian origin. We stayed on... More
