As the other reviews have indicated, the condos are outdated. However they are spacious (1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms) with all the amenities... lots of closet space and hangers, dishes, dishwasher, washer dryer, blender, wine opener, etc. We had a partial ocean view and a partial BMX motor Raceway view. You don't usually see the people racing, mostly just the dirt of the track.
The three best things about this hotel are 1. the location (easy drive to South or North part of the island, plus the towns nearby have great little restaurants; good hiking trails nearby like the "sleeping giant"), 2. the ability to walk for a great distance on the beach, 3. and the pool. The pool is equipped with a small waterslide, two hot tubs, three or four pools, and it is nicely landscaped. You can get drinks served to you and there's a tiki bar where you can order food. I recommend the Lava Flow drink...They've got the best one on the island.
One word of caution...The salespeople. They'll invite you to look at their Bali Hai location, but one thing they don't tell you is that the location is sold out. So the entire time that you are touring the Bali Hai condos and learning about how you can own property with celebrities like Will Smith, they're actually selling property on Oahu. I'm not sure at what point in the process (if any) that most people discover this. We found out because I asked to see the specific condo they were trying to sell us, and that's when they revealed that the property was in Oahu. We also got some pushback for not purchasing, but we would never purchase property sight unseen. Also, back at the hotel, we tried to book a helicopter tour. We had done our research in advance and knew the company we wanted to go with. When we tried to book that with the sales agent at the hotel she got very upset and tried to insist we use a different helicopter group. Even when I noted that the helicopter group she suggested didn't have tours w/out doors, which is what I wanted for photography purchases, she still tried to talk me out of it. I'm guessing she got a higher commission with the one company. So we booked our tour on our own.
