We booked through Costco and the wonderful folks at this resort upgraded us to a partial ocean view room. We rented a one bedroom condo and as advertised it was well equipped with high-end appliances and many supplies we were suprised to see included. We are snooty about lodging and can honestly say that this place is wonderful.
We could not figure out how to start the AC so we left a note for the housekeeper. When we returned, it was working and we had a lovely gift from the staff. We asked for more pillows on day two and came back to eight pillows on the bed. Other than that, we really did not need the staff for much, but every single person we ran into was very friendly and professional.
The pool is very nice and they are generous with beach towels which are very nice. No need to pack your own. The beach was stellar, in fact the best play waves we experienced on this trip were right at the Honua Kai. The best snorkeling we did was at Black Rock which is very close by and Honua Bay which is less than ten miles north.
Clean, this place even smells really nice
Great appliances and electronics
Lots of room
NOT SO GREAT
The water pressure in the shower was awesomely strong, but the shower head produced very narrow streams of water which were painful
The pillows on the bed are not very good; next time we'll swing by Costco near the airport upon arrival and blow $30 on pillows to solve this problem
You should feel very confident in booking a room at this property. It's wonderful. We left thinking about buying a unit here because we were so impressed.
