I've been coming to this property for years and have seen many improvements ever since Marriott Courtyard took over. The outdoor space use to be fairly drab with just a simple concrete hole in the ground full of water to cool off in. Courtyard has added many new features and design elements to the outdoor space to make it more enjoyable to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The outdoor fireplace and fountain being one of my favorites. There are plenty of loungers, daybeds and hammocks around the property to accommodate everyone and you don't feel crowded like many other beach resorts.
The staff is great and does their best to impress with the tools given to them.
The beach isn't a swimming beach at all. Of course it is beautiful to look out on but if you're looking for a swimming beach you must look elsewhere. The hotel provides bike rentals for $10. I usually take a nice four mile bike ride on a great bike path to a beach called Kealia Beach which is nice for lounging and swimming (strong swimmers only).
The room is nothing special, just okay. There is nothing in the room that stands out as being great. I've stayed in a few rooms that smelled really bad of mildew and felt damp. My current room has a leaking toilet and a broken TV. If I were just rating the room I'd give it a two star review.
The location is great as there is a Safeway and Foodland within walking distance as well as many options for restaurants and bars. There is a local farmers market every Tuesday nearby which can be fun to visit if you're into that type of thing.
Overall, it is an alright place to stay if on a budget and you rent a car to explore the island.
