As others have noted this is a pricy location. The Tommy Bahama shop is fun. Otherwise better shopping south at Wiakoloa King and Queen's shops. Best meal value and 64oz Margarita at Just Tacos. It was so unbelievably large that several people not only stared but actually asked us it…fortunately we were walking the person drinking it home…

Took a shopping and beach trip. The resort was beautiful. Eat at Tommy Bahama's. Make sure you packed your swim/ stuff for a nice afternoon at the beach after lunch. Ask at Tommy's how to get to the 49s black beach on the resort. Public access is ok and there is room for about 20 cars. Showers and bathrooms are at the beach! It was awesome. There is no shade so take an umbrella.

The host at the free hula and fire show is very rude. She was disrespectful to one of the dancers. She pushed a dancer in front of everyone. The audience watching felt awkward while watching her treat the dancers unkindly. After the show, I witnessed the host being mean to one of the tourists. The tourist asked for a picture with the dancers, she brushed off the tourist saying that she didn't want to take the picture. So another tourist that witnessed the same incident stepped-in to take the picture. This show needs a new host.

Nice area with pricey shops. Went to the free hula showing today (Monday) and they had very beautiful dancing and singing. When we were watching the 'manager' came out saying it was one of the dancers birthdays so they huddle around and before the dancer blows out his candles another dancer wants to move in closer and for no reason the 'manager' pushes the dancer away. So, when the show was over we walk up and see we can take a picture with the dancers and we ask the 'manager' if she could take a quick picture of us. "Um I have to go talk to her.." then she just walks away. I thought we were supposed to be family? I was stunned that they acted the way they did. Glad it was free.

We had a wonderful dinner at Tommy Bahama's, located at the Mauna Lani shops. While this is upscale dining, it was family friendly. We had cocktails and entrees, no dessert, and our bill was $100+ so it is a bit pricey. I had one of their nightly specials, a marlin steak, and it was very, very good. My husband had the red, white and bleu salad with his barbeque ribs, which he said was "good". The service and atmosphere were excellent and I would recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner while on the Island.
