First, the location is perfection. Quick drive to/from the airport, excellent beach access with a stunning view. A lot of restaurant and shopping to check out. The hotel grounds are plush and green, and definitely well kept. The staff was always ready with an "Aloha" and a smile and were all very happy to help you.
The gym is nicely appointed. If you are a runner you must do the 3 mile loop around the hotel golf course. The scenery is spectacular.
The pool is second to none. Wonderful full circle design with a small island in the center. It also had about 5 hot tubs that allowed you to be social, or be alone if you wanted. And the kids' pool is off to the side. Great pool !!!
Be sure to hit Taco Tuesday at Duke's Barefoot Bar. Make friends with Chris on the Terrace Bar, he's great. Happy Hour at Kalapaki Joe's across the street.
My only complaint is that they didn't mention construction would affect our room stay. On two of our days they turned the water off to our room from 10a-2p. We were not in the room, so it didn't actually affect us. However, I did ask about upgrades upon check-in, and had they mentioned this construction we would have switched towers.
