can I get some AC here.....

We (group of 6) rented a four bedroom suite and it wasn’t cheap at over 1,500 a night. Things started out well enough with a visit to the beach and the pool. We had a reservation at Roy’s for 7pm and it was very good but the problem was when we came back at 10pm and the room was almost 80 degrees. We called front desk and maintenance was sent...I think it’s the first time they had seen an AC unit and from around 11pm to 2 am they worked on it with no fix. It was so hot two of the guests slept on the balcony and the rest of us just sweated it out. We spent A LOT of money on spa, Roy’s, and drinks at pool (probably 2000.00) and the hotel gave us 300 dollars after we made numerous complaints ...300 dollars is probably a senior discount equivalent. We spoke to manager Isaac and he seemed sympathetic but he passed the buck up to his manager (her name escapes me but sadly all our names escaped her...we were just numbers) and apparently she cared little about 4 military people who pooled money to stay somewhere “comfortable”. Sadly a motel 6 would have been more comfortable. I will never go to this place again and hopefully you will read this and go someplace else as well. There are a lot of nice places on the island.

Amazing view; substandard room

Los Angeles, California

What a beautiful resort! I heard that they have renovated the rooms; ours was not one of them. The carpet was ripped at the seam all the way across the room, with the largest gap 1 inch. The paint in the bathroom near the shower was peeling. The room might have passed at a budget hotel, but is unacceptable at luxury resort prices. However, the view from our lanai was magnificent and the resort grounds are wonderful. We spent all the time we were at the room (other than sleeping) on the lanai, watching and listening to the breaking waves. If you stay here (and I highly recommend it) make sure that you are given a renovated room.

Let the children enjoy a fun fishing excursion where they can experience the gentle thrill of Hawaiian fishing. Plus, if they don't catch a fish, you don't pay! Serious fishermen and women may instead prepare the non-guided fishing option where the resort can drop you of at the special fishing site and pick you up at the end of the day.
