Lovely place-- hotel makes the most of the soft Hawaiian breezes. Fascinating fish ponds nearby. Beach chairs are comfortable and offer adjustable sun/wind shades-- perfect for relaxing and watching the sunset. Meals are pricey but rooms have
mini-fridges and there is a market in the resort shopping area. Parking is $18 a night, so add that on to your rental car expense. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Lots to do in and around the hotel, and the location is good for access to all of the island.

Short drive from hotel
There is a nice food market in the shopping area out toward the highway.
I lost a very delicate necklace with diamonds due to my own fault. It just slid off my neck when I was going out to dinner. I guess I didn't put it on properly. We reported the loss, but did not hope to find it. After we gave up, the staff kept
looking for it in the dark with flashlights, found it somewhere on the parking lot, and returned it to us the next day. We just couldn't believe it! As I said before, the necklace is extremely delicate, and the hotel's staff was not responsible for the loss.
Wanted to relax, sleep, enjoy good food, swim + snorkel, explore the island further ... loved it. Beautiful setting and beach. Did not use many of the resort offerings (spa is pricey) - nice quiet place, very friendly staff. Good food at
Canoehouse. Free wifi, parking, and very nice, spacious room + bathroom. Great location - quick to airport (KOA) and sights along West coast.
