We stayed the month of December '04 at K-Sands. Enjoyed the location, the grounds, the tennis courts and pool. (Altho you could hardly get a chair in the pool area during the 2 weeks surrounding Christmas). It was great to be across the street from the beach. I would recommend buildings 2, 3 or 5...just based on location. We were in 6 - on the south side, so our lanai never got breeze or sun. I think the further away from the street, the quieter it will be. Now about the condo itself...I have read alot of concern about the A/C. We were in a one bedroom unit. There is just one A/C - in the living room. That means the bedroom doesn't get much cooling but there was a ceiling fan that kept it pretty comfortable, as long as the bedroom door was open and the A/C on in the living room. Remember - this was December, so I would be concerned about the warmer months. Some people have written reviews complaining about the housekeeping. We did not pay extra for housekeeping so we cleaned up after ourselves, washed our own sheets and towels and the only complaint I have is that my husband didn't fold the towels the way I like. But he doesn't do that at home either!! I have also read about concerns with bugs in the units. Believe me, this concerned me too. And my worst nightmare came true when we discovered the kitchen pretty much infested with cockroaches. However, we called the company we booked thru (Ali'i Resorts), right away and they came and sprayed and put out bait traps and that pretty much took care of them. K-Sands has a nice magnetic card security system and security personnel are present on the grounds so it feels quite safe. Would we stay at Kamaoloe Sands again? Yes. I guess my advice would be - research everything you can about your particular condo before committing to it - there seems to be a wide variety of cleanliness/updatedness/buginess.
