Internet (almost $16 a day), parking ($18 a day) (you can get both covered by a $25 per night room charge-ask) , shade by the pool (not nearly enough umbrellas, so plan on paying for a cabana $25 to $50 a day-or get to the pool by 8 am and leave a book or something to save your chair-it is cut-throat), resort restaurant: breakfast $20, quesadillas $15, stand up paddle board ($50 an hour). Yoga by the beach $10. Massage $120. Not much is free, swimming in the murky bay, swimming in the pool (a nice infinity pool, but no separate adult pool), a hot, sun-burning beach chair, the fitness center, internet in the lobby, printing boarding passes. Our room smelled musty-moldy (the air-conditioning unit). The room is small. The shower average. The ocean sports vendor has a deal on Tuesdays where you can use all the beach toys for $25 for 3 hours. I asked the front desk what kinds of things that included and they did not know. That seems like something they should know about. Okay, the good. This hotel is right next to the King and Queen shopping centers of Waikaloa, so you can walk across the street or down the street and get coffee or meals for half or a third the cost. The room has a real mini fridge. The balcony which had a view of the ocean, was small, but nice. They have nice soap, towels and shampoo. The two person kayak can be rented for $25 for a hour, which was a better deal than anything else. They limit you to about 300 square yard area to paddle in, which was too bad. It was nice to sit in the shade (once I figured out to get that at 8 am), on a lawn chair by the pool and feel the ocean breeze. I wish I could be more positive about this hotel. If it was remodeled to be more of a European boutique hotel, I think it might work. They would need to give up on the make a buck around every corner model. Spa: I don't like to pay this much for just getting into a nice treatment room for a massage. I prefer hotels that have spas with steam rooms, jacuzzis, quiet rooms etc., so I can spend a few hours relaxing.
