We based out of this hotel for five days and it provided a great location to see the entire island.
The hotel is a 60s style three level with small rooms and gorgeous paintings of the island as a motif. The artist has left for the mainland, but the atmosphere is layback and tropical. The staff is caring and friendly, and do provide suggestions for dinner/activities with a native pride.
It is not the Grand Waileah Hotel so do not be disillusioned. It is a great alternative to the regal palaces that have blossomed all over Hawaii. It is a step back in time with all the access to beach/stores and restaurants that you could want.
I slept with no a/c just the sound of a waterfall and the trade winds blowing through the open jalousie windows. How many review stars does that get?
