Was put off at first - it all seemed a bit over the the top - like a Disneyland version of Hawaii, with man made lagoons, vegas style fountains, Starbucks, etc. And timeshare sales staff at the 'aloha desk' ambushed us right after checking in.
But after settling in, really came to like the place. Best condos I have stayed in anywhere. Great walking, running track along the impeccably maintained gardens and lagoons. Decent snorkeling.
Great staff with lots of Aloha like Roy at the resort info desk - hard to find a nicer guy anywhere.
Easy access to the North Shore, about 45 mins drive. Target and Safeway only 10 minute drive.
