The pool location , the staff , beach Poor cab service, food options poor, food over priced for quality
The views are amazing and can't be beat! Very quiet and comfortable. Perfect luxury! Nothing.
Room cleanliness, size, restaurants, beach, service was great. You get what you pay for.. Cheap snorkels
Bed was very comfortable and the room spacious. Everything was very clean. Fantastic location.
Wonderfully designed hotel which is open and integrated into the natural landscape of the beach and countryside, luxury at every locale on the property. No
Has one of the best beaches in Hawaii. Price was reasonable .staff could not do enough for you....
Location at the beach is excellent except that there are no real alternatives to hotel restaurants. Outdated, especially bathroom and not very clean. All in 80's style. Tried restaurant once for breakfast and very disappointed. Parking too expensive, should be free (self parking far away from room).
Sweeping open spaces far from the crowds of Kailua-Kona. Beautiful open lobby and a cool drink at check in. Nice pool and great beach. This was our 3rd visit and probably won't be our last. Always at least one flight of stairs to get down to pool and beach, so beware if someone in your party is mobility impaired. As others have commented, dining options are few and pricey. The Coast Grille was closed for renovation during our stay, limiting the choices even more. Fortunately, there are many choices further up the Kohala coast and a little ways inland at Waimea. We do miss the old tradition of free orange "slippahs" in the room, but apparently the bean counters got to that one.
We loved the location. The pool area was outstanding for families. The beach was very accessible and beautiful. It was very quiet and relaxing. We would stay here again. The eating choices were few and expensive. The location felt isolated so that the only convenient choice for food was the hotel. That food was very expensive. One restaurant was closed the whole time we were there.
Great location and beautiful grounds - basic but nicely done. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lobby is gorgeous and rooms are spacious, though outdated, VERY few restaurants or bars open on site. Made it look and feel like a hotel on the way down. Looked like a lot of events had just happened and the staff had not gotten around to cleaning up yet. $12 for in-room wireless is SO yesterday. Hotels without site-wide free wireless are just trying to tap guests (aka hostages) for their last $. Had to go to lobby to get free wireless. Give this facility a little facelift and keep more restaurants/bars open and you might get more occupancy, more energy, and more revenue.
a great place No
The hotel is with good facility and big - located on the beach. The pool & spa is very nice. The beach is nice and having few people compare to Waikiki. We are arrived at late night - not easy to find the hotel on the highway.
