This was our first stop of four places around the island on a Christmas trip with five family members. We needed three rooms so this worked well for our budget and needs. It was cozy and homelike with a perfect location for our day trips. Ric and Maria were extremely friendly and welcoming and our son measured every other breakfast on our trip by the one here but nothing came close. I need the recipes or a return trip to Hale Kai. Views were stunning although we missed seeing whales and dolphins. Rooms were comfy. Pool was small but good enough for cooling off. If you are looking for good prices, good food, good people, good views and good reviews, this is the place. We wished we had stayed another day or two.
