I stayed at The Makai Beach Lodge for 3 weeks on business and it was wonderful. I walked into my room and looked out my patio door and the beach was right there, not even 35' away. The staff are awesome and the new owners are really restoring the hotel to its splendor. While I was staying there all of the beds were replaced, all of the guest room doors were being replaced with more new electronic locks. When the new owners are finished with all of the renovations The Makai Beach Lodge is going to be the only place that I will ever stay.
