First visit to the big island. Must say though it is very nice, not my favourite island. Not a lot of long sandy beaches for swimming or strolling. Not really any swimming within walking distance of the resort. Still a beautiful spot, stayed in unit 2403 overlooking the ocean front pool. Great views from the lanai, sunsets and whales galore. Had a chance to see a few other units, all were different, some a little dated. This unit was very well done, granite and tiles throughout. Huge master bath, nice bedrooms and a loft as well. Could probably handle 6 people pretty easy. Our unit had everything you could ask for kitchen wise, except a teapot,(Second time I've run into this in Hawaii, was odd because there were all kinds of teas in he cupboard) The grounds are very well maintained, clean and secure. 3 pools, tennis and BBQs spread out over the area.
Pools were cleaned regularly and refreshing, not heated I don't think. One thing I feel they should change would be having the oceanfront pool be the adult pool. Little kids really don't care about the view when they are swimming whereas we would have enjoyed the view with a little less screaming in the mix. Since we rented from the owner directly through Aloha condos, we had very little interaction with any of the staff, they seemed friendly enough. Shopping centre about a 10 minute walk away for groceries and a couple of places to eat, but you really need a car to get anywhere decent. (Sam Choys was not good, see my review if interested) All in all it was a great holiday, glad we've seen the island, but probably won't be back. Would stay somewhere closer to a swimming beach if possible.
