I loved being right on the beach. The community areas of this hotel are very nice, very inviting. The pool area is lovely and has an expansive view of the beach. The hotel puts plenty of chairs out on the beach as well.
I had a garden view room which faced the tennis courts. Small balcony. It was great to have the door open during my entire stay.
Food in the restaurants is OK. The staff are very friendly and helpul. On busy nights, they seem a bit overwhelmed in the bar.They have a pretty steady flow of events - hula show one or two nights a week, live musice in the pool/bar area.
This place is within walking distance of plenty of food, drug store, grocery stores, restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
