I have stayed here three times. The first time was in 1981 before Hurricane Iniki when you walked right out of your doors onto the beach and rates were $33 a night. Those days are gone but this is still a very nice hotel situated directly on one of the best beaches on the island.
The staff that checked us in the past two times were excellent. I believe one girl was named Velvet and the other was a shorter woman with short hair who took some pictures for us. The one hotel bellman was very helpful with giving us dining and tourist suggestions. The young girl we had for the ukulele lesson and lei making was sweet and hard working. The young man who took us out to the tidepools was interesting as well. They have bikes on premises that you can use that are part of the resort fee and we had a nice bike ride with them. The hotel staff allowed us to stay at the hotel using the pool and beach after checkout while waiting for our 11pm flight back to the mainland and they have a hospitality room you can use to change and shower.
We were here in March 2013 and January 2014, both times having the garden rooms. We did not mind crossing the street to go to the beach. The insides of the room were nice, clean, with a nice balcony overlooking gardens. There is a nice pool for the garden rooms. I was very happy with the location of the room that we stayed in this past January. The one that we stayed in March 2013 was near their laundry. We had to walk by a high fence down a sidewalk that reminded me of an alley. I think that walkway may need improvement but the room itself was fine. The color scheme of the rooms were fine and not too loud. Rooms were clean and no problems with maid service.
I did not eat at any of the restaurants so I can't comment on those. The pool was nice and warm, although it would be nice to have a place to shower off your feet before going from the ocean to the pool. The pool and hot tub seemed to be a good size and the walkway in front of the beach is lovely.
I also think the resort fee is a bit steep but overall, I would stay here again as it has an excellent swimmable beach and is in a good location for touring the island
