I love this hotel, even though it's old and a bit funky. It represents a slice in time, has a beautiful location (sacred spot, actually), and the staff is very accommodating. We were given a room with two double beds, and wanted a King, so even though we had started using the room, they gave us a new one. This place is casual, a good deal for the price. The hallways/reception areas are open to the fresh air; it's always exquisitely refreshing. I am not a fan of the Overly Air Conditioned Hotel thing, being that it's such a waste of resources. Our room had a view of the River/Ocean, friendly chickens, and was quiet most of the time. My one critique was that the place looked dirty, like the white furniture by the laundry room...I wanted to clean it myself! Many areas that were white were just grimy. I'm not a clean freak, and I love the older furniture and the older, classic feel of the hotel. But a bit more obvious cleanliness would go a long way, especially in high traffic areas. I don't care so much about peeling paint, or rusty air conditioning vents (WE ARE IN THE TROPICS, PEOPLE). I think this hotel should clean up a wee bit, and showcase those beautiful quilts and fabulous Mural in the meeting room. Maybe clean up the fish ponds, too? Other ponds seem to have more "healthy" looking water for the critters. I loved the pineapple and papaya in the morning, as well as the wait staff and laughter that ensues when certain staff is around! Really a unique experience that I would gladly repeat. Mahalo!
