Don't waste your money on the Beachcomber Restaurant. The bar has great food which comes out of the same kitchen and the view is even better. I've eaten three times now in the bar during my business trip here. Have eaten breakfast each morning in the main restaurant only because it was included in my room rate, but would not have gone back after the first morning. Nothing special at all. Choose the bar if you're staying at this hotel for your evening drink and dinner.

Exceptional price for an open bar, all you can eat buffet, the gorgeous locale, and a Polynesian show that is as authentic as it gets. $85pp but ask for the internet discount which reduces the price to $70. There is a special rate for kids under 12.

This hotel has a great location right on the water. Most rooms have an ocean view. Great deals for kammaina. The hotel is older and could use some updating.

When we checked in we asked if breakfast was included in the price we paid . Upon checkout we were charged $28. If we knew there was an added charge we certainly would have skipped it. Not only was it bad, but it was invaded by a flock of birds. Even sitting in the toaster.

The food here was really good and you could grab 3-4 appetisers and listen to the waves with a couple of drinks quite happily for an hour or two.
