I guess a lot has to do with your preconceived expectations -- we have stayed here twice in the last 4 years and plan on going again next year. The positives: awesome pool, beautiful grounds, attractive walk to rooms, good snorkeling off hotel beach, great snorkeling nearby, town of Hanalei terrific. The negatives: the rooms are not the most up to date decor, but they sure make up for it in roominess (5 of us very comfortable in the 2 bdrm suites) and each room has a patio. We never had any issues with service, and the first time we went one of our group had a broken foot and we just had the golf carts drive us up and down from the beach. Yes, there are no lounges at the beach, but we just rented beach chairs and took them up and down ourselves. It would be a nice improvement to have beach chairs, but this minor inconvenience was overshadowed by the wonderfulness of the resort. And Poipu vs Hanalei -- we couldn't wait to get away from the noise and crowds of Poipu to the serenity of the north shore.
