Nice hotel...

Bellevue, Washington

If you are looking to just relax and not plan on going anywhere, then this resort is excellent. The resort itself is a little far from Honolulu. Hotel is older than what we are used to but the rooms are nice and resort is nice. Service is excellent.

Beautiful resort with excellent service!

Pleasantville, New York

I stayed at the resort for 1 week since I was attending a conference here. It's an incredibly posh resort with excellent staff all around. I have to say though that my family stayed here on a discounted conference rate. Everything at this luxury resort is, as expected--very expensive! From the onsite restaurants to even the pool side grill, expect to pay a hefty amount. There is a fridge and coffee maker in the room but no microwave. We ended up going out for tasty traditional Hawaiian plate meals most days to save money, though we did eat at Plumeria Restaurant (on site) for a buffet breakfast--it was wonderful. Everyone here is extremely helpful and polite. There is a dolphin pool in the resort with 4 dolphins. We did not partake in the dolphin swim program but saw many families in the water with the dolphins, which was very entertaining! If you've got the resources, I highly recommend going!
