We stayed 4 nights in a second floor room with a/c. The price was great, the location perfect and the extras provided by the hotel (beach mats/chairs, coolers, snorkelin gear, etc) terrific. We stayed in February, and I would say that you definitely want a/c for maximum comfort. We did not find the tile floors to be exceedingly warm as did a previous reviewer. The room was very large and had a queen bed and two twin beds (we put them together for a double bed). It also had a dining table and chairs, a spacious counter area with sink, coffee pot (and Kona coffee!), microwave and refrigerator. It was definitely large enough for the four of us and would be ideal for parents with two children. The room was slightly dated, but very clean.
The location is great for exploring the island. Nearby, there is a shopping center and Kalapaki Beach. There is also a park on the ocean with swings and picnic tables with grills. We ended up cooking dinner in the park a couple of nights which saved a lot of money and tasted terrific!
The gear provide by the hotel was fantastic--they even loaned us a flashlight!
The staff was friendly, the location perfect and the price affordable. What more can you ask!?!
