We thought this resort was fantastic. The location was great at the north end of Kaanapali beach so there were fewer people in general. The accomodations were very nice and it was great to have a kitchen in the unit to save some money on a few meals during the week. We frequented the gourmet store in the lobby of the hotel, which was more pricey than a grocery store there, but convenient and still less expensive then eating out. The fitness center was very nice, with the exception of a broken elliptical that people just kept using because the others were full. There were a lot of lounge chairs available around the pool which was great. The beach front path was nice to access a walk further down the beach, but it not actually beach front for a good amount of time. It is hidden behind trees and a little sand dune hill on one side, and construction fence posts on the other side for a good amount of time, then it wanders through various resorts before it actually turns into a short beach front path taking you to Whaler's Village. The beach was small and steep, but the sand was nice. It was difficult to swim near the resort because of the large rocks on the bottom of the water, but there were people snorkeling. It seemed the beaches more south were more accomodating for just swimming and floating around in the ocean. This does seem to be more of a family oriented resort and my husband and I have been used to adult only resorts so it was an adjustment to hear so many kids around, seeing double wide strollers by the pool, and pack and plays under cabanas. If you have kids, this could be encouraging. We honestly didn't spend a lot of time on the resort and in hindsight may have stayed somewhere a little bit more affordable as we weren't able to make the best of the pool or the extra space in the room. Overall though a great stay and we were happy campers!
