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. Not evaluated. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.

Spotless luxury resort with stunning...
Pros: This is a spotless luxury resort with a stunning beach right on the doorstep. We particularly appreciated the thoughtful little touches in the room, the exceptionally delicious food (try the ahi poke tacos and the rib-eye steak!!) and the beautiful views. Staff were very kind, and seeing the manta rays at night is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Cons: The building itself was probably visionary back in the day, but is a bit of an eyesore now - the grounds and surroundings however are spectacular.

Luxurious treat in a delightful...
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.

Not worth staying at this...
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.
