I had no idea what to expect from a hotel chain I had never heard of. Turns out that this was one of the best hotel experiences we've had. The Andaz exceeded our expectations in every way. First, the property is hip, great to look at, and perfectly situated on a wonderful, accessible beach. They have done a wonderful job in making the hotel feel very boutique, yet it has all of the comforts and conveniences of a large hotel. While the rooms are not huge, they are very well laid out, making you feel like you have more space than is physically there.
The beach at Andaz is just what you would picture a Hawaiian beach to be, complete with palm trees, soft sand, perfect ocean views, and a fantastic reef for snorkeling right in front of the hotel. During low ride, the tidepools are incredible - we saw crabs and starfish, urchins of all kinds, and even small fish. The Andaz staff are beachside and are there to help set up chairs/umbrellas and help with paddle boarding, canoeing, boogie boarding - all of which are avail at no extra charge.
The hotel restaurants were phenomenal, which is an unusual thing to be able to say. The breakfast buffet was included in the package we booked, and was so very worth it - food was incredible every morning. For a real special dinner experience, Morimoto's restaurant did not
disappoint! Even the poolside bar food was delicious...though not inexpensive.
We were all continually amazed by the friendliness of the Andaz staff. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were having a great time. It was not stuffy in the least: the perfect combination of comfort and service. I would seriously be interested to know how they do their hiring - each and every person we encountered in the hotel, its restaurants, or at the beach/pool were beyond nice and helpful and you can see the pride they take in where they work. It is very evident they are so happy to be working there and said numerous times that it is the best hotel on the island.
We couldn't agree more and can't wait to return.
