End of trip finale was a dud :(

First the location and staff were all great. The room had pumped in coconut spray which was awful. The worst part how ever was the food. We sent back meals and wine on 2 different occasions. It was super overpriced and poor quality so we finally went off site last 2 meals when we had hoped to sleep in and eat on site.There is a frig in room bring food!

Beautiful location

The hotel is on a very beautiful private beach. We stayed there because we were attending a wedding at the hotel. The views from the balconies in the Ocean View rooms were amazing and worth the upgrade. The rooms are outdated, and the furniture needs refurbishment. Bathrooms are very spacious though. Everyone that worked there was very friendly, but the restaurants were very expensive. There's no food options near the hotel, so you will need to have a car and drive to other restaurants. Kona is about a 40 minute drive. If you want nightlife and lots of shopping then stay in Kona. If you want a quiet beach and relaxed vacation, then this hotel is a good option.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

As expected, the food at the resort is outrageously expensive. There are a few restaurants about 10 minutes north, and there are some south near the other resorts. There's also a grocery store in Waimea if you want to buy food and keep it in the fridge.

not luxury by any stretch

beautiful location - that's it. oh, and I liked the old school swimming pool room outdated. $4 to get hot water to make tea. resort was not crowded at all - great for us, but maybe not for the business. would recommend for travelers without kids - quieter, no kids club or crazy beach/pool equipment or activities.
