I really don't know why some people give this place anything less than a 5 star rating... Its affordable & the staff is cooperative, understanding & most importantly they are friendly. It really boils down to this - are you traveling to Hawaii to stay in your room all day? If not, the two pools are beautiful. The beach is literally a stones throw away. And you are within walking distance to Kapaa's stores & entertainment. Maybe I've been spoiled (NOT), but it works for me ;-)7.
And yes, there is construction right now... They are obviously working to improve some things - nothing that can't be avoided. Get over it!!
