Where to begin? We traded our timeshare week for a "hotel room" at Kahana Falls. So, this review is with regards to this type of room at KF. This "hotel room" is actually used as a 2nd bedroom lockout, which means if you booked a 2 bedroom timeshare, the "hotel room" is the 2nd bedroom. The Good: The ceiling fan and AC worked. The bed was comfortable. The Bad: Too many things. The Ugly: The room. We have been in "hotel room" trades before through Marriott, but this was THE WORSE! We had two terms for it: The Dungeon or The Hell Hole. The room itself was approx. 8x10, not counting the bathroom. It had a queen size bed and a large dresser, which took up most of the room, and were dated. There was about 1 ft. walking space between the bed and dresser on one side, maybe 4 ft. between the bed and the small "kitchenette" area, which consisted of a small refrigerator, a microwave on a small shelf, a toaster and a coffee maker on a small counter with a small sink. At the other end of the room, we had a small corner that had been mirrored floor to ceiling, which had a small table with two chairs for our eating area. We had to pull the table away from the corner in order to have room enough to eat at the table, which then took away most of the walking space in that area. There was no light over the eating area, so we would have to turn on the bathroom light to have sufficient lighting. The bathroom was large and dated, with a really weird green whirlpool tub/shower combo that had frosted glass doors to the ceiling, which meant taking a shower almost in the dark. The tub was weird, and with no window in the bathroom and a horridly noisy fan, who would want to take a bath or whirlpool in it? There was ONLY one window for the entire room, which was 4 ft. W, and 2 ft. H. All of these "hotel room" units had this window, which faced the hallway, so if you opened up the blinds, anyone walking by could look into your particular dungeon. To make it worse for us, we had the window facing the elevator shaft for our scenery, so we had no outside light to speak of. We had the option of using the Ohana room for cooking and hanging out (flat screen TV, fitness center, dining/kitchen area), but the staff did not take out the trash for the 3 days we stayed there, and the window situation was just as bad, except for in the fitness area. To be fair, if we had the 1 bedroom with a lanai and adequate windows, we might have been happy. But that was not the case. There were other people probably also with dungeons of their own trying to hang out in the common areas, which had a nice pool, but no one could hang around the pool or at the beach, as it was raining and windy. Also, there was only an old TV and no Wi-Fi in the rooms, just a hard wire hookup for PC's. After a few days we said ALOHA to the dungeon/hell hole and decided to give ourselves a real vacation at a good hotel. DO NOT take the "hotel room."
