Stayed here 2 nights. The bedroom was spartan, to put it kindly. The closet doors are metal cabinet doors like we had in elementary school. The bathroom looked like a locker room, and had only one outlet. US visitors: the hotel does not automatically provide washcloths. The TV cabinet was hand-made out of stained plywood. There was no clock in... More

Ended up at the Kanoa Resort after the usual hotels in Saipan had filled up with (pre?) Chinese New Year visitors to the island. We were offered a $40/night additional charge for a room in an "executive suite," which was supposed to have been "newly renovated." Maybe we should have, and maybe that's where the positive reviews are coming from.... More

We arrived early and could not check in until 2pm. The lobby was promising and the pool area with slides were great. The food in the buffet was very good, but priced high for the half-sized offering of a usual buffet. I think this is Saipan wide, not limited to this hotel. The Airport pickup was $10 each as was...

Arrived the hotel early in the morning; glad to check-in earlier by extra USD40. Rooms were rather aged but acceptable with the rates paid and the very nice seaview. The bed was compy and the air-cons was strong. Free Wi-Fi was available in the room and the lobby. Staff were friendly in general. Hotel breakfast was sufficient with Asian food... More

I made a last minute reservation here because most of the other hotels were booked for the marathon that weekend. I was worried after reading other reviews on here. The hotel staff was excellent, the food reasonably priced, and there was lots to do; 2 pools, with waterslide, beachfront access with many water sports/toys, and giant hamster balls. Our room...
