My husband and I stayed at this lovely resort in August 2010 ; we had room #671 in the Kauai building , nice garden/mountains view, very quiet !
Our room / wing looked like they had been recently redone : sparkling clean , comfortable queen beds , small balcony from which we could have a glimpse of the beach/ocean !
Should you be a HYATT type guy , this hotel isn’t for you !
BUT if you wish a truly Hawaiian experience , with lots of ALOHA and friendly staff YOU’LL ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS HOTEL !!!
We specially loved our evening meals at their main restaurant , with FREE but AWESOME & WELL PERFORMED hula show ; you can watch that show EVERY night … and it’s always different !
We adored the REAL Hawaiian staff , who put up many classes about Hawaiian culture : I did two different LEI-making classes and the hula dance class twice ; cannot remember the name of our “kumu hula” (teacher) , but she was absolutely lovely , one of my warmest memories about this vacation.
You’ll find nice Hawaiian touches all over the hotel and grounds … and big smiles everywhere , from the WELCOME buffet breakfast ( with the staff serenading you ) to the touching “Until we meet again” kukui lei ceremony on the day of your departure :
We LOVED the champaghe they delivered to our room as it was our anniversary ; the Whalers Village is a short walk away and there you can find everything , fron REAL scrimshaw to quick bites , shave ice and hearty cheap breakfast !! Try Kimo’s restaurant at night !!
The famous Black Rock is steps away ; be sure to watch that awesome Cliff Diving ceremony ( at sunset)… you just need to walk a couple minutes on the beach …
Be sure also to save one evening to watch the awesome Magic Show which is helf at Kaanapali Beach Hotel (Kupanaa) : it is really amazing.
We are already dreaming of a return trip : wouldn’t consider to stay anywhere else !!!
