We stayed 5 nights and had a great time.
SERVICE: Staff here is great. Courteous and always willing to help. On arrival, I asked about pizza places as it was late and we were hungry and within 5 minutes a few menus from local pizza joints arrived.
LOCATION: Short walk to GW depending on where you are in the complex. We paid for a non-view location which is closer to the resort but still ended up with a beautiful ocean view. Travelling w/ 2 small children the pool access to GW was key. There are complimentary shuttles as well which will pick you up and drop you off (deluxe golf cart).
CONS: Aside from the cost ($999 - $1099/nt), the only downside was some construction in the area -- all relatively minor such as cutting tile, painting, landscaping, etc. but still there was minor noise throughout the day and when travelling with small children can be difficult to put them down for naps, etc. That being said, my wife mentioned this to the staff and they were nice enough bring by some dessert so I think they understand that this can be an issue.
All in all, very happy we stayed here. The Ho'olei pools are very nice and salt water which is a bit nicer on the skin. Also, staying with small ones having a kitchen and more room made it much more enjoyable for everyone.
