We chose this "resort" because of location and price. We knew we would not be there much! Let's face it, we are in Hawaii. First impression was, this is nice! The pros: the location, the pools are kept really clean, it's near a good family swimming and snorkel beach, the bartender is very friendly and personable, and good view. With that said: it could be so much more! As others have said: with just a few maintenance issues it could really be great! The fixes needed:
The sliding glass doors! They take brute force to open and close them. They have one washer and one dryer for the entire hotel to use! And the dryer broke! If you want a snack and its after 830 pm, tough luck! Not even a snack machine! Want a pool towel? You gotta go to the front desk and they keep very close watch, one for one or none! Then you can be charged for a towel if you don't one for one. Parking? If the hotel is full, some have to park in an odd location in the back/side of the hotel. No entry on the side, you gotta walk around to the front. They seemed caught off guard or short staffed. Something was amiss? They have a concession stand open from 11-2 by the pool, that wasn't open nor communicated that the restaurant would be, which its usually open from 5-8 pm. When I think about the location, our time on Kauai, I would try to see if I could find something comparable but if I couldn't I would stay here again. It has its cons and let's face it: when push comes to shove, they weren't super horrible.
