Still great

Dallas, Texas

Always pay a visit when on the big island and am never disappointed. Consistent service. Great rooms. Amenities all right there. Best beach on the island. Breakfast 5 stars. Rest of dining is good but not great. I always recommend this hotel to first time visitors who want a taste of real Hawaii.

Beautiful, relaxing didn't want to leave

Sandusky, Michigan

Can't say enough about this property, from the check-in made us feel at home, the staff always was there to help with anything. The beach is wonderful and relaxing, pool is nice but not as quiet as the beach. Never had to search for beach chairs. Didn't eat there just had cocktails. If your coming to the Island the Luau on site was excellent. We could see the whales blowing from the beach. Bring your yeti cup for the beach.
