This is an upscale condo complex. We stayed for one week, with 5 year old twins. They look forward to swimming pools: unfortunately, my only beef with Hawaii is that many many places choose not to heat their pools. This pool was freezing. We never saw any adults swim, only children. And they had chattering teeth after only 15-20 minutes, so we spent most of our time in the hot tub (children under 8 not officially allowed, but it was the only place to warm up). It really doesn't matter that it is 80 degrees outside. We also visited the nearby Waikaloa Hilton, and spent the day in their pools, also freezing (all adults we met there were not happy with that either). I think we're a bit grumpy about this. The other problem is that this part of the big island is windy.
The good things: beautiful beach (A-bay) easy walking distance, beautiful condo, right on the grass where the kids could run and play while we relaxed on the lanai. You can see how beautiful the insides of the condos are from pictures online. THe grounds are well maintained. Pretty. I imagine it is really busy in the summer (pretty quiet for us).
