Check-in on a Saturday afternoon was a bad surprise. The lobby is on the 3rd floor and the line for check-in was backed up through the lobby to the elevators. We stood in line with our luggage for about 45 minutes.
Expect to pay an excessive, daily "gratuity fee" for features and services you won't use and don't care about.
The only restaurant attached to the hotel is casual, but it has comfortable outdoor tables overlooking the beach.
The included breakfast is a poolside buffet. You're given a bag in which to collect sweet rolls, coffee, miso soup and fruit. (lots of plastic containers) Carry your juice in your free hand and try to find a table. There's a hula dancer and a guitarist-singer for entertainment during breakfast.
We had a couple of unpleasant experiences with housekeeping oversights, but once these were brought to the attention of the desk clerk in the lobby, a credit (for the gratuity fee) was issued.
