I have been a loyal customer at the Lava Lava Beach Club cottages since the time they opened. My review here reflects my pre-Covid and post-Covid experiences. Without a doubt the location is perfect. Four small cottages looking out over A-Bay just a few steps to the water. Sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee as the sun rises is as close to perfection you can get. The cottages are nicely furnished and each has an outdoor lava rock shower. Pre-Covid the cottages were equipped with nice coffee mugs, plates, silverware, glass water and wine glasses and we were welcomed with a nice personalized note. Each day a nice plate of fruit and banana bread was provided for breakfast and every evening we were delivered two cocktails of the day and a nice pupu to snack on. Post-Covid the coffee mugs were paper cups, the silverware was plastic utensils each packaged in plastic with a napkin, plates were disposable bamboo, water glasses are now individually wrapped plastic picnic cups and the wine glasses are plastic as well. In this day and age of sustainable products and reduction of plastics all the waste generated each day here is sad. And the morning breakfast plate and evening drinks/pupus are no longer offered. In addition the mattress was so soft you sank into it (warning to those with bad backs). And yet the cottages cost almost twice per night now than pre-Covid. As for service the housekeepers were all very friendly and accommodating. The cottage manager, Chelsea, has always been quick to respond and provides excellent customer service.

My friend and I went into Lava Lava for dinner and drinks. Jed was out server and we were impressed by his level of professionalism and customer service. The restaurant was crowded with lots of parties and we observe Jed not only handle himself well with these other parties but also didn't let that sway him from being an above exception server to his other tables including us. We look forward to returning to Lava Lava because of the excellent dining experience provided by Jed. Give him a raise. Now.

We love staying at the cottages. We've been there twice, but our second stay lacked the uniqueness of our first stay. We missed the hanging bunches of bananas on our porch, the morning fruit tray, the evening delivery of cocktails and appetizers, the gift card to the restaurant, and the wristbands that gave us quick access to restaurant seating. Management said they stopped those extras because of COVID. I really hope they bring those items back. We don't believe COVID had anything to do with eliminating them. Maybe they are just recouping COVID losses?

Boy oh boy did we get lucky to find these cottages. I’m so happy we booked with them. The cottages are huge well appointed in a great location. Everything is with walking distance or you can hope on a bike. The airport is about a 20-25 min drive. The property’s manager Debra is a phenomenal host. She was always readily available & very knowledgeable with great ideas before we booked, during & after. The location you can not beat. Falling asleep & waking up to the sounds of the ocean waves. It is a public beach but it doesn’t get crowded. You have a bushes & a tree in front of your room the blocks & separates you from other people. We stayed on the cottage 2nd from the restaurant Hale Moana. When we go back we plan booking all 4 cottages for our family members. Definitely beats staying at one of the chain restaurants. It was so difficult to leave.

Who would have thought we could find a really nice place to stay during the pandemic? You can’t beat the scenery, comfort and tranquility here! Really well thought out and beautiful cabins directly on the beach and we even were able to bring our dogs! Thanks for your help Tina🥰🥰🥰🥰

Honestly I didn't want to leave a review at all for selfish reasons. These cottages are SO amazing I would really like to keep it a secret, but I just can not. Not only are the cottages amazing but the staff is even better. If you come here, all you need is your beach wear as you will not want to leave for any reason. All I wanted to do was chill on the Lanai and watch the horizon for wales, boats and sunsets. The bar and restaurant are excellent as well... we have traveled ALL over the world, and this is our new favorite. Oh and the bed.... so comfortable! We returned home last night and booked again for the same time next year first thing this morning...

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at one of the 4 cottages at LLBC and had the perfect Hawaiian vacation. Each cottage is right on a sandy beach, with palm trees, sea turtles resting, amazing sunsets, and a fantastic variety of daily live music and Hulu dancers...truly paradise!! It's refreshing to have air conditioning when needed, and a large, private outdoor shower. When you don't feel like driving the LavaLave restaurant is perfect for lunch or dinner. Everything in the cottage was comfortable and perfectly appointed! We will definitely be back again soon! Thank you to all of the LLBC staff for your kindness and ALOHA!

Staying at the Lava Lava Beach Club cottages were the highlight of our trip. The setting right on the beach was perfect and they provided nice amenities like bikes, paddle boards and morning fruit/afternoon drinks. We swam with sea turtles almost every day and the views of the ocean/bay were just perfect. Having the Lava Lava beach club restaurant nearby was also very convenient. The cottage was well maintained and housekeeping/administrative staff were very helpful. Only possible downside was a fairly constant stream of people strolling the beach in front of the cottage during the day but everyone was very respectful and did not intrude. We will definitely be back.

We kicked off our trip with three nights in Hale Nalu (third farthest from the restaurant), and loved every minute. If you're only staying here for part of your trip, I'd recommend saving it for the end—nothing else will compare, and you'll be wishing you were there for the rest of your vacation! Every day we saw sea turtles, lots of geckos, mongooses, beautiful birds, and even a few friendly cats. The service and amenities were fantastic. Everyone we encountered was very friendly, and the daily treats (fruit and a muffin when housekeeping came, and appetizers and drinks around 5/5:30pm) were all great as well. The only downside for us was that the mattress was very soft. The daybed was firmer, so if you have trouble with the main bed you may end up sleeping there instead. We'll be back!
