We stayed at a resort prior to staying here. If you expect a resort then stay somewhere else but expect to pay 3 times as much. The rooms are very nicely decorated with cool ceiling fans and the lanai/view of the ocean was great! The area is nice but also not like a resort town however there are some cool shops and nice restaurants. We recommend renting their bikes and riding north, the view is spectacular and there are multiple secluded beaches along the trail. Kanoe, the onsite manager was exceptional, super friendly and looked like the image on Hawaiian airlines. We visited the entire island and the only other place we would stay is in Hanalei Bay. For the price and the great ocean view you can't beat this hotel. The only drawback was the tub/shower was extremely high and deep. If you are short or older it may present a problem. We would definitively stay here again!
