We have just returned from 3 days in Hawaii, as the tail end of an 18 night cruise from Sydney.
The Hotel is well placed (about 2 streets from the actual beach) and well serviced by bus and trolley stops. The rooms themselves are excellent, well at the high end of the scale. The bed was comfortable and king size.
Their is no mini bar (not needed by us) and the shower was good (even if missing the bits to stop the water leaking out of the door !) There is a pool on the 3rd floor, that also serves as the breakfast area. Wifi is free and available throughout the building (letting us catch up after 18 days at sea).
The staff seem very unhappy and completely non customer interactive. We had very little conversation that was not related directly to work.
The Bar / food area took 20 minutes to provide a basic burger (that seemed to be made on 2 week old bread) and followed the first meal by 10 minutes....
Breakfast had to be shared with pidgeons, who seem to infest the dining area. You need to have breakfast with two poeple, one to fend them off while the other eats - if you can eat the dried up offerings. The daily waffles and other bread based options were in-edible. The fruit was nearly all pineapple (you had to be up early to find the few pieces of watermelon or other items). Coffee was the best option.
Apart from eating and drinking, this hotel is a very pleasant stay (lol).
