Visited 11/19/12 - 11/23/12. Good location, easy walk into town. The hotel is older and looks dated but was clean. The staff is friendly. The clientele mostly seems to be senior citizens who have been returning here for years. The beds are only inner spring, no pillow top so for me very uncomfortable. The bathroom is not vented (personal pet peeve), not well stocked with towels unless requested, & they do not provide conditioner (pet peeve again). The pool is quite small, there is no hot tub & the pool towels are the size of bath towels. Don's Mai Tai Bar truly does have the best Mai Tais (try the sampler). The drawback is the luau. While it is nice to be able to watch the show for free from poolside or from our balcony, it is incredibly LOUD. It could be heard through our closed door every night until 10pm because once the luau ended, practice began. A gentleman we met who had stayed here 2 weeks is now ready to never attend/hear another luau again after hearing this one so often. It only took us 3 nights and we were glad to be leaving. Overall, I would not plan to stay here again, I prefer a little more luxury and amenities on vacation.
