My family and I just spent 7 nights here in a beautiful 2b/2ba condo in the lagoon tower. The rooms were huge and also included a full size kitchen, balcony, lounge room and 3 tvs. Very comfortable indeed. The beds were very comfortable and we even had mid week housekeeping which was a nice surprise. We also had complimentary use of the washer and dryer. There was one on each floor. The staff throughout are also very nice and very efficient.This property has plenty of restaurants plus an ABC store and starbucks onsite. There are about 5 different towers in the village. 3 are in a u shape overlooking a large grassy patch and the lagoon. This green grassy patch is where that noisy Luau operates 5 nights a week from about 630-830pm. Before and after this is the setting up and then the packing up so more noise. You may want to disappear from 630-830. I have been advised this is only a temporary measure as the usual spot is being renovated. The lagoon itself is pretty and great for the kids but who is in charge of this? It seems open to anyone and everyone which is not a problem but the reason I am asking is because the maintenance of the lagoon is almost non existent. My 13yr old fished out 5 dead fish that were floating on the surface. Why did they die? Is the water toxic? The lagoon is a better option than the beach down here (especially if it were without dead fish). At the beach, it is advised you wear shoes in the water, because of all the rocks in the water. The sand is also on a very hard surface. One of the BIG problems I have with this resort is that you have to pay to have a lounge chair. $15 p/chair for a day + $15 for a beach umbrella. For a family of 4, this equates to $75 p/day. A bit rich dont you think! GO TO THE ABC STORE, BUY A BLOW UP MATTRESS AT $2.99 + 60c TO INFLATE and you have it all week. Even better, you can use it in the water and pass on to another family on your departure! As for the umbrella, you may want to hire this otherwise move around the lagoon with the sun. It seems that all the hotels on Waikiki Beach are doing this. So sad!! Also the hire of the paddle boards, the kayaks and the paddle boats are excessively priced. Between $40-60 per hour depending on which one you hire and if you have kids, it's hard to escape it because everyone else is having a turn. I don't believe there is a "quiet" end of waikiki beach. It's all busy. However, one of the bonus to staying here is if you are a fan of Hawaii 5 0 and it's filming season, you will probably have a great chance of seeing some filming done just beyond the lagoon, as we did.
