I reserved our timeshares rooms rather late in the game and ended up needing to change rooms twice during the week. The first room was in building G. It is back from the water but still had excellent ocean views. We were on the second floor and realized pretty quickly that the floors were VERY creaky. Sure hope the folks below couldn't hear! Room was comfy with large livingroom area. Kitchen appliances weren't new, but were clean and worked great.
The second room was in B. We were very close to the water. This was a two bedroom unit. The master bedroom is HUGE but the livingroom is very small. I believe it used to be two seperate units. Floors were not as creaky as G. The people below us smoked at night so we were unable to enjoy the paio or leave the door open. Appliances in this unit were old and needed updating.
The third room was in A. Again very close to the water. This time back to the one bedroom, but on the ground floor. The convenience of the ground level patio was nice for walking out to the beach or pathway, but there is a level of concern since you are RIGHT on a public pathway that is heavily traveled. Appliances were newer.
The pool at Pono Kai is nothing to brag about. We never went in once as it is very small.
Daily beach towel exchange was a wonderful asset to us as we hit the beaches every afternoon.
Onsite snorkel gear rental was very convenient.
Beach in front of the resort has very little room to lay out. The flat area is grassy. Lots of sand crab that are very fun to watch.
Location is VERY convenient to touring the island. Safeway is just up the road with lots of restaurants.
Resort is located at the head of a 5 mile paved coastal path. Bike rental is across the street.
I would recommend visiting this resort.
