Sadly, we just returned from a 10-day visit here, our first time. I can only imagine how great it is when the lobby/bar/restaurant amenities are back in service (reconstruction due to fire) estimated May 2014. It's pretty great even without it!. We loved the property--beautiful grounds and pool, helpful and caring staff, terrific views. We even got a few days of tennis in!
Be aware that this resort has many components: timeshares and privately owned units so make sure you know what you're getting! We rented a wonderful dead on view unit of Bali Hai (Mt Makana) that promised upgrades and "full kitchen." This was not accurate. I like to make meals on vacation so this was a sticking point as the sink was a bar sink, the countertops for prep very limited, appliances older. The bedspread on the king was ripping at the seams, the carpet needed to be changed out many moons ago, etc.The beds were quite comfortable! We got past it, but just not at all what we thought it would be even after several conversations with the owner!
On the other hand, my sister and her husband rented a unit that was just rehabbed beyond measure.Just gorgeous! It had a table to accommodate six so needless to say we shared some of our meals there---and she doesn't even like cooking on vacation!!
We will return but will take greater care in unit choice. If you like to email me, I will tell you the unit we rented.
