This was my second stay at this resort and I was not disappointed. I booked a semi ocean view and when we got into our room we were given the wrap around balcony on the top floor. We had an amazing time and staff was very helpful.

We were given a substandard room upon check-in and could not be moved to a better room until the next day. Since we were only staying for 4 nights, 25% of our time was spent in a room that: 1. Had a very musty smell. 2. Showed signs of general disrepair. 3. Suffered a leak from the toilet bowl due... More

Another 30 for our food....(order must have gotten lost), then the food was terrible. Burger was very well done to the... More

The rooms are very nice, the restaurant and bar are lovely. The luau is a good one! I was very happy there. We have a blip when I walked off without my luggage. They locked it up and saved it for my return! So they are efficient, too. Each area of the hotel has it's own view of delight. It... More

Enjoy a plate of natchos and a drink overlooking the ocean or a bucket of prawns. Drinks were expensive but food was reasonable and good. Very good Mai Tai's and non-alcoholic iced tea. Only downside was Beer wasn't cold enough.

We really enjoy eating at the bar here. More casual and if you get a seat on the ocean side you will be gifted the most beautiful view of the sunset.

A wonderful bar to see the sunset and have great Mai Tai's for 5.00 from 4-6 Pm outside for Happy Hour. They also have a happy hour food menu with good prices on some items and other small plates on the same menu. All of the food was very good and the service was great. You can sit close to... More
