The staff were instantly very accommodating, the first room we were given was small and unfortunately a restaurant opposite was having renovation so the view wasn't what we had imagined but when we asked for a different room the staff were quick to accommodate with no more than a 15 minute wait which was very impressive, the new room had a great poolside view and was much larger, as a couple looking to escape a bust city lifestyle we did not realise Hawaii was such a family holiday destination, apparently the modern used to have a no children policy which had recently changed, it was nice that they did have an adult pool, unfortunately parents had not adopted this which was a little annoying but no fault of the hotels. Smokers beware Hawaii is generally a non smoker friendly zone, there was a dedicated smoking area which was no actually on the hotel and consisted of about 1 sq metre in between an adjacent hotel, in which even there we were told we were bothering their residents sitting outside, all for eco friendly but it wasnt nice to feel like an outcast. There were also no smoking rooms, I suppose had we researched more thoroughly we would have realised this before booking but in this day and age I suppose we hadn't thought of this a problem.
Concierge very knowledgeable and helpful, nothing was too much. All in all maybe not ideal for our requirements but a great hotel and stay non the less.
