From nickle and dimeing you with having to purchase coffee after your first day to not cleaning your room until mid-afternoon, this hotel has way too high an opinion of itself. There are no dimmers on any lights and when you want to sneak into the bathroom in the middle of the night you have to either turn on all the bathroom lights including a fan that sounds like an airplane engine or turn on a six light fixture right above the side of the bed in the bedroom. There is no signage to the hotel other than the sign on the road, so if you are staying here once you turn off the road you have no idea where to go.
There is a heavy duvet on the bed. European style- no sheet, just the duvet cover. We are in Hawaii- not Switzerland! We were so hot we had to turn the air conditioning down to 65, just to sleep. Later I learned we could have asked for a change of linen to sheet and light blanket. The staff is less than accomodating. When I made a special request of the kitchen I was told the chefs were too busy to prepare something to take off premise- a simple sauce for fish! Considering the restaurant has not had more than 10 diners in it since we got here I wonder what they are so busy doing. The least expensive rooms start in the $400"s and go to $800. Check out the Sheraton or Grand Hyatt on Kauai.
