Over the years a lot of my friends stayed at the hotel and said they had a great stay but I was somewhat skeptical until I got there. Wow I was blown away by the cleanliness and of the rooms (Llima Tower), the staff was always nice and helpful. They have a breakfast buffet for about $13.95 at one of the restaurants, the food was great! The small BX was well stocked with everything you need and the prices were not bad. We stayed on the 11th floor of the Llima Tower partial ocean view facing Diamond Head (made a request for this location based on a review on Trip Advisor and they gave it to us no problem). Since the balconies are angled out from the building pretty much all the rooms have a great view of the ocean. The gym was small but adequate; the pools were large and kept warm, plenty of chairs and tables to go around. We rented a car and the parking wan an additional $7.00 per night, not bad compared to what other places charge, $25.00 or more. The hotel is right on the beach, a very nice location. We will DEFINATLY will return next year.
