The resort is fantastic. Truly excellent rooms with a great kitchen setup. We had a 2 BR grand suite with a wraparound lanai. Nice views of the mountains in one direction, limited ocean views on the other side (we were in Building 3, other buildings are probably better). Note that the views on the 4th floor are better, but its also much, much windier as you go higher. There were times you could hardly sit outside, while at pool level you hardly noticed the breeze. The least desirable aspect is that the beach (near the Sheraton) is technically walkable, but its a long and unpleasant walk. There are several beaches within a few minutes drive, but if you want to easily walk from your suite to the beach, this is not the place. But then there are very few truly beachfront resorts in the Poipu/Koloa area.
