My first time staying at a time share on any of the Hawaiian islands, always been a hotel 4 or 5 stars Hawaii traveler. I can see that condo type resorts have some benefits, depending on how you like to travel. The sands of kahana is a bit older but the rooms are clean. Staff is friendly. The pool side...

We stay here every other year, always with another couple, in a 2 bedroom.They all love it. Exceptionally large master BR w/ sliding wall to open up large LR/DR area. Couches are super comfy. Kitchen comes with all you might need for food prep (minus the groceries of course) They even provide soap ~for laundry, dishes,face and bath. Nice sports...

The rooms are very dated in decor and furnishings, but you cannot beat the location and the amount of space. The two bedroom where we stayed is about 2200 square feet, supposedly one of the largest 2 BRs on the island. The second bedroom is quite small and we used it to spread out dive equipment and luggage---would be okay...

Great location, easy access to local shopping, great beaches and nice pool on grounds. Clean grounds and rooms, little out of date decor, but easy to get past considering the weather and activities close to location. Little noisy in the morning with a choir of birds outside. We were concerned initially that there was no air conditioning in the units...

Ours was a last minute booking - check in was easy even at midnight. As we walked into the ocean view 2 bedroom condo - all we could say was Wow! Beautiful view, great sunsets. For one adult and 2 kids (14 and 11) it was expensive. As soon as I mentioned we were not a party of six -...

I stayed here for two weeks. The parking was bad at night and the beaches are in need of being cleaned as the water is dark and dirty here. I drove to there nicer beaches on island because the condo beaches are gross

Stayed here with family in 3 bedroom unit in Building 4 (unit 431). Check in was efficient. I requested a change of unit to Oceanview but was declined with standard response that this is high season and lots of owners on site. Our unit did have a bit of an ocean view if you looked past the Valley Isle resort...

I have been staying in this 4 - building complex for about 15 years. The units are HUGE and beautifully laid out. Since I don't have a timeshare, I just rent my condo through Sullivan Properties, so I can stay as long or short as I wish. Be sure to ask for an oceanfront unit so you can fall asleep...

Grammy at the front desk has been absolutely fabulous to us in our second year in a row at SOK. She gave us ocean view rooms the entire stay both times we stayed here.

We have stayed at these condos before. We like them because they are large for our big group of 17. However we don't love the beach right outside the hotel and also, not impressed that there is no air conditioning. It was very uncomfortably hot most days and nights in the hotel. Another complaint is the parking garages and parking...
