Good food, views and service. Highly recommend eating there. Kuai is pretty small so everything is close by. Parking was easy and the staff were kind and accommodating. The ocean view and beach were nice too :)

we were there supposed to be celebrating our 25th anniversary but everything was shut down when we arrived due to COVD. restaurants only offered pick up and all the state parks were closed, all excursions cancelled, the bar was closed. although we wondered why the hotel allowed the pool and more importantly the hot tub to remain open, there were people crowded in the hot tub every night- they were brave i guess ! The airlines changed our flight times the night before we were supposed to leave so we had to arrange to stay there longer than the 11am checkout. they charged us half the price of the room in order to stay until 6pm. i feel this was unfair because i know they couldn't have had a ton of people checking in because the whole island was basically shutting down in a few days. but, we didn't have a choice because our flight left at 11pm but given the bad circumstances already i feel they could have done a bit more or given us a better price in order to keep the room until 6pm . i could see if it was peak time or normal circumstances. Maybe one day we will get to go back to Kauai and experience the island to its fullest !

The people are incredibly friendly. The food is delicious. The place really feels like a tropical Hawaiian vacation but for less money than resorts. I not only stayed here once but I went back and stayed again because I liked it so much.

I was sold to book this place to stay because of their hotel pictures look pretty clean and nice. But the hotel in reality doesn't look as nice and spacious as the pictures, and this place seems to be more for college-aged students to party. The season we went (in June 2019) this hotel seems to be pretty over-crowded comparing to other 3 hotels we stayed at on Kauai. Even when you closed the window you could still hear young people partying outside. Parking condition is also pretty crowded. I will only recommend this place to people who want to stay at an affordable place and don't mind that they stay at a college dorm-like hotel. If you want to feel like you are vacationing in Kauai leisurely, book from somewhere else.
