We paid extra for an ocean view and we had no ocean view. I’m fCt, there are no rooms on this property that can view the ocean because on the layout. I feel like a gigantic sucker. It was complete false advertising. As you can see from their pictures on line. I feel very badly for anyone that gets roped into staying here on their vacation.

Mahalo for your feedback! Oceanview rooms are located in the Lei and Mauka building and have either a side view or direct view. We are very sorry for your negative experience and that you were not happy with your room. Should you return we'd be happy to place your room in a more favorable area.

The property is well maintained and very pleasant to look at. The ocean is what makes this unique. You hear, see and smell the ocean at all times. I is so beautiful and peaceful. The staff sets this property apart. Kaipo, Kama, Dominick, Luh'ee and Dell were just stellar. They love their island and their jobs.

The outside areas of the property were nice, but our room was unacceptable. Unfortunately it was a last minute because of spring break everything was booked. Lets just say we stayed at another hotel the next night for a third of the price and it was cleaner

Although a great spot, and the adjoining Restaurant Lava Lava was nice. The pool is old, undated, and uninviting and with 200 rooms only had around 14 chairs at the pool. The beach they did nothing with it chairs ect.... when going for two weeks you was not provided a dresser only two small nightstand like drawers and only about 10 hangers, your room does not have a microwave only a minifridge. I did eventually find a microwave inconveniently located in the ice room in another building. The beds were comfy the staff was friendly I just feel like they could do so much more with this property to make it more accepting and appealing.

Nice beachfront location with two swimming pools, hot tub and on-site dining. Property is a 60s era hotel, and only big complaint is the horrifically small parking spaces; we had a very small car and could barely fit between the painted lines!

Facilities exceptionally clean, a little dated but great place. Sometimes WiFi didn't work in my room but it worked great everywhere else. Staff wonderful. Restaurant breakfast, great selection and wonderfully prepared - dinner not so much!
