We checked in for four nights, June 30-July 4 and frankly nervous given some of the recent reviews. We had already been to Oahu and Kauai and this place had a lot to measure up to. We were very pleasantly surprised. We immediately asked to stay in one of the newer wings and were given a free upgrade to the Kauai wing with a partial ocean view. The Hawaiian bedspreads were a nice touch. The free breakfast to hear about activites on the first morning was also a surprise. It was a full buffet not just coffee and Danish and the hotel staff performs for you. The beachfront is gorgeous but go early if you want to swim as the waves get intense and there is no barrier. The whalers shopping area is a short walk along the water. The first night we got there just as an amazing group of Hawaiian dancers was about to put on a show. It was a luau without the calories.
Back to the hotel. We didn't do any of the free classes but did hang out by the pool one evening. It was lovely. The rooms were well kept. One morning at the beach and you will see what the maids have to contend with with all the sand you drag in.
We rented a car which got us to nearby Lahaina and and also Paia.
All and all you can't beat the location. The staff was friendly and helpful. I am glad we stayed here.
