Good hotel, but probably wouldn’t stay again

This is a nice hotel, but to call it a resort is a stretch. The service was good. Our room smelled distinctly and persistently mildewy, and the bathroom paint and fixtures needed some love. The resort fee, from what we can tell, included two bottles of water a day, in-room coffee maker, in-lobby coffee and tea, a restaurant and bar, a small gym, a medium-sized pool, and outdoor lounge chairs. My experience has been that those are all completely standard hotel amenities these days. At this this price point on the islands, resort fees typically include far more (snacks, shuttle service, eco-friendly water bottles, beach/snorkel gear, etc.). Adding in mandatory daily valet fees, it becomes a little laughable in this setting. We probably won’t return, but it’s not a bad spot if you get good deal.

Lovely Koa Kea

Omaha, Nebraska

We recently enjoyed a week at Koa Kea. It's not a large resort which was very pleasant. We had an Ocean Front Suite which gave us plenty of room and a wonderful ocean view. The front desk was helpful in getting a room just down the hall for friends of ours. The Red Salt Restaurant had a terrific menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
