My female friend and I visited for nine nights. We made our selection off the site recommendation and rating. We stayed on the eighth floor near the elevators and yes we could hear them all the time but we are sound sleepers and don't mind some noise. The room was nice, roomy, clean and was cleaned daily if we hadn't conserved and only requested it be cleaned every other day.
Being frequent visitors to Hawaii, we decided to try the Big Island this time. We usually drive ourselves around and explore rather than rely on tours and such. We enjoyed the many fine restaurants and cafe's, especially Ken's Pancake House. Wonderful Teriayki Platter and Rib specials. Breakfast was great too.
It rains a lot on this side so we drove to the west side a lot but did not mind the trips back and forth. We snorkled, swam, hiked, dined out a lot, walked, jogged, took pictures, and went on a snorkel tour on Fair-Wind cruises.
We will definitely return again and again.
We had an excellent time!
Mahalo to the staff at the hotel, all the workers in town, and to the Great state of Hawaii!
