AAA Inspector Notes
This hotel offers a breathtaking beach and contemporary Hawaiian atmosphere. The spacious guest rooms feature a lanai, all with either an ocean or golf course view. A collection of 1,600 pieces of artwork graces the expansive grounds. There is no shortage of activities on site as you will find snorkeling, canoeing, bodyboards, stand-up paddleboards and oceanfront tennis courts available here, just to name a few options. Did not meet all AAA rating requirements for locking devices in some guest rooms at time of last evaluation on 04/25/2016. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.

Pros: Staff is pleasant and professional. We appreciated early check-in. The most of all, lost and find department staff earned my respect, how trust worthy and efficiently they operate. When I made a call from Honolulu airport about items I left behind in the room they promptly took care of my problem. My Hawaii vacation ended with a very happy feeling. Mahalo!
Cons: The big cross beam at balcony was dirty. It did not go well with a million dolor beach view. The bath room door was hard to operate due to poorly maintained sliding door mechanism.

Pros: Everything was great but it is expensive. So be prepared for a large bill at the end of your stay. The beach and pool and the grounds are gorgeous. The staff are very nice and accommodating.
Cons: Needs better wifi. Everything is nice but the mark up on price is very steep, like $10 for a Kona brewing co beer and $10 for a latte. Plan ahead with a trip to the store for snacks and drinks.

Pros: Delightful oasis within those spectacular lava rock fields. Also a really pleasant and relaxed contrast compared to Waikiki's frenetic energy. Beautiful grounds and facilities. Beach front room on level two - away from the busier reception and family spaces. LOVED watching the wild Manta Rays just below the Manta restaurant each night. Great pool, quiet resort when we were there even though they said they were really busy and we should book restaurants etc. Lovely touches like fresh banana bread and fruit each day. Amazing breakfast options at the Copper Bar.
Cons: Valet parking was a bit too attentive/intrusive - just too eager to serve I guess, we just wanted to be able to help ourselves when heading out or returning each day. Short wait for breakfast on one morning only. Express breakfast options at beach bar were basic and not great value.

Pros: The beach was incredible
Cons: The staff is very unaccomodating and certainly needs help in the hospitality department... A lot of hidden expenses, still waiting to hear back regarding a rental car charge .. 5 days later, I am going to dispute it with Amex.
