The ensuite shower didn't work but that didn't matter as we just used the 2nd bathroom. It was a shower over bath in 2nd bathroom which... More

Just returned from a two week stay which I booked thru a trade with RCI. The "resort" is in need a total rehab, but the location can't be beat. The only thing that can make the location better would be to move it on the ocean! The points needed to trade here thru RCI are a bit high & it's... More

The Imperial is in a great location - very close to the beach, shopping and food options. All employees we encountered were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and well maintained. The lounge area on the 26th floor was a fantastic space with a pool table, bar/kitchen area (bring your own) and a great balcony which was the... More

I stayed many places in Hawaii over the years. This one is in a great location. I understand the price is very good for the area. We exchanged our timeshare, so didn't pay like most. It has a nice balcony with a view of the ocean. It was very clean and comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised. Many timeshares in Hawaii... More
