We stayed in #406. The positive of this resort and this unit is the view. It is amazing. However, there are a number of issues you should be aware of before deciding to make this part of your vacation:
* By far the biggest issue is the air conditioner. The living area is at the front of the unit with the bedroom and bathroom at the back. The air conditioner is a wall mounted unit in the living room. This compressor is on the balcony (lanai). This means that with the air conditioning on you cannot sit on the balcony and enjoy the view as the noise is insane. Secondly, the air conditioner only cools the living area and does not have any effect on the bedroom. This makes sleeping in the heat very uncomfortable.
* The unit is definitely old. It is in reasonable condition but the decorations and amenities are very dated.
* The dryer does not vent outside and also doesn't dry the clothes. This adds to the air conditioning problem as the dryer blows hot air into the apartment. After an hour of using the dryer our clothes were still soaked so we walked downstairs and paid to use the coin operated dryer.
* The dishwasher is tiny. With only 2 of us in the unit we had to put it on twice a day.
We stayed in a lovely unit on the big island before staying here and overall were disappointed with this unit. I'd recommend looking at other options.
