The condos are relatively close to the main part of town which is convenient. Across the street is a nice beach and a little down the road is a wonderful beach where we viewed a lot of amazing sea life. It was really wonderful. We swam among large sea turtles and many varieties of fish. We stayed in a 2br/2bth condo which was a nice size and nicely decorated. The view we had was of a mountain side. The restaurant across the street was recommended by owners but although the ambience was lovely the food was average and the price was very high. The pool was adequate and had a small hot tub. The only down side I found was that the residences were decidedly grumpy. When I brought my two children ages 13 & 11 down to the pool the people as a group met us at the gate to inform us that masks were not allowed and after reading the rule board we discovered that even Marco Polo was not allowed. They had also managed to call management before we entered because they saw us coming w/ masks in our hands. After I assured the manager that we wouldn't use our googles she left and they ( a group of 7) proceeded to stare at us, until it was so uncomfortable that the kids were actually scared and asked me take them back to our unit. I'm a mother who insists that my children present good manners, so I don't understand why they went out of their way to let us know we weren't welcome there. I noticed others here have reported the same thing so at least I now know it wasn't just us. If your thick skinned this condo is in a lovely spot to enjoy the Big Island.
