Stayed here for 5 nights on my first Island stop in Hawaii. Attentive and friendly staff were always eager to help. The main lobby and pool area faces West giving beautiful views of sunset. The room was standard Residence Inn fare that was clean and modern with full kitchen if you need it. Viking built in outdoor bbqs are available if you want to grill. All the shuttle drivers were super friendly and getting dropped off wherever you needed was always a breeze. I had the room to myself, but it would be great for families at a reasonable price, as there are no resort fees. If I had to grumble about something is that I believe this is the only location in the chain where happy hour isn't free(was surprised), I guess because, well, it's Hawaii 🙄
This hotel by far surppasses your typical residence inn. It's new and nicely thought out, with many extras. Amazing for families with kids - a grass lawn by the pool/ restraurant has giant legos, wood blocks and games for kids to run around and play while parents relax. Downstairs area by the grills (yes this hotel has outside grills for barbecuing) has mini golf and basketball court. Rooms are spacious and housekeeping does a good job keeping them clean. Staff are very friendly and always willing to lend a hand with a smile. Pool was perfect temperature - cool and refreshing on a hot day. The staff even came by the pool to hand out popsicles and frozen grapes. Breakfast was good with nice airy seating area close to the pool. Staff did a great job keeping breakfast area clean and replenishing the food. My only complaint is it was a little noisy if your bacony door is open and there is little privacy if you're out sitting on a balcony - adjacent room/ balcony right next to you and you can hear every word. But overall, we had a great stay!!
