This place is incredibly relaxing. The views from our large lanai allowed for both a mountain and ocean view. The proximity to the ocean means that you can hear the ocean waves crashing onto the beach 24 hours a day, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking to it.
Several wonderful beaches (Ke'e Beach, Tunnels Beach) are a very short drive away. We hiked the Kalahau Trail which also is just a short drive away. However, you could stay out on the lanai the whole day and leave refreshed and at peace with the world.
The only negative I can think of is that the furnishings and rooms were a bit dated, but really, that means very little when most of your time will be spent enjoying the ocean and beaches.
We found the nearby restaurant (Mediterranean Gourmet) to be absolutely terrific.
