This hotel is in a great location just a block from shopping. the rooms were clean and staff was amazing. There is a small beach area located behind the pool where you can sit or choose from some water options via Kona Boys for additional fees. The Luau here is rated one of the best, if you are staying in the hotel there is a discount. The only down sides I experienced were very few umbrellas by the pool and there was a plumbing issue in the tub. Ocassionally in the AM there would be residue that looked like dirt in the tub. We stayed in room 370 not sure if this is an issue in all rooms or just the one we stayed in. We managed to solve the problem by plugging the tub after showering. When we checked in there were pool towels in the room although these were not replenished through the stay. We had to go to the front desk for towels. The staff was great about it and would issue towels with a smile, although it would be easier if the towels were placed in the room instead.
