I've stayed in this hotel three times in the last year, and I think that's enough for me.
While the lobby is lovely and modern, and the front desk staff are awesome, courteous, and very helpful, the rooms themselves are not great at all. With the exception if the penthouses, which are modern and pretty affordable for the location, the rooms are pretty bad.
The bed in the room I last stayed in had a visible crater right in the center. The bathrooms are like tiny holes with low ceilings.
I did enjoy my kitchenette room on my second stay, though I did see a couple of small roaches.(It is Hawaii, after all!)
The WIFI is ridiculous! It costs $10 per day and loads sooooo slooooow. Forget watching a movie on Netflix, it will constantly stop to buffer and you'll forget the plot. (WIFI is free in the penthouses)
All in all, if your main goal when coming to Hawaii is to be outside and enjoy the culture and activities of the island, this is a great, affordable choice.
