This resort-style hotel is so good. All rooms have been recently renovated with a fresh, modern style.
They are quite spatious with great bed; bathroom en-suite is ok.
All rooms are almost identical. We have been for 5 nights in the ocean-view most expensive one and for one night in the cheapest street-view. Except for the location both the rooms were identical and so good and quiet (in the second one we just missed the sound of the waves while in bed).
There are two pools, a good garden and the beach is also so nice.
There is no restaurant in the hotel! This is the big difference with a real resort. However there are many good restos nearby (also in walking distance). No restaurant results also in less noise... That's not bad! The hotel is really so quiet and peaceful.
Staff is friendly.
Pool towels are for free.
Breakfast was ok for me but don't expect much variety: pastries (three-four kinds of doughnuts and croissants), bananas, coffee and juice (one type). It is a little buffet, nothing special ma it works good: the location of the hotel is strategic, halfway between hanalei and lihue. It's a perfect point where sleep and rest while touring Kauai.
I wouldn't suggest this place if you have in mind a resort where stay for days without move.
