Our family visited Honua Kai mid-February. We had five people staying in a two-bedroom suite. Biggest complaint: The ocean view is NOT an ocean view. We paid a premium to have a room with an ocean view, as classified by the resort. Even when we checked in, the front desk promised we would be "very pleased with our ocean view." However, when we got to our room, we had a great view of a huge palm tree right beside our lanai and only tiny slivers of the ocean through every other palm tree the resort has around their court yard, pool, and beach. We're certain other "ocean view" rooms have the same issue as it's pretty impossible to see through the trees. When we called the front desk to say we weren't pleased, there was nothing they offered to remedy the situation. If you're looking to be able to sit on your lanai and watch the whales, be very cautious when reserving a ocean view room at this resort.
On the other hand, we were very happy with the multiple pools and hot tubs. The water slide was fun. The staff was very nice and the resort was very clean. We loved the fact that the doors to the lanai opened very wide. The small grocery store in the lobby was convenient, but pricey. My wife paid $12.50 to participate in the hour-long yoga class offered by the resort and was happy with the service. Valet was apparently included in your room price but we never used it because it was just as convenient to park your own car. Overall, due to the below average ocean views (if you would even consider them ocean views), we don't plan to return to this resort.
