A family vacation at Thanksgiving for some warm Hawaii sun and water. We've stayed at the Kea Lani about a dozen times. Each time has been good - good service, restaurants, public areas and room. Great location with large and beautiful pools, water slide, and great beach with easy access to snorkel with plentiful fish and sweet graceful sea turtles. The new Ko restaurant is definitely worth trying - especially for the Ahi seared at table on a hot stone. The fresh local catch is also a no brainer.
A few cons: the mattresses were saggy, but in all fairness, we didn't complain or ask that they be replaced. The water pressure has been ratcheted way back. I congratulate them on conservation efforts, but it is now difficult to wash.
Overall, I would recommend the hotel because of it's luxurious, family friendly hospitality without being 'Disneyesque'. Enjoy!
