My wife and I stayed at Moana lodge in mid December of 2013. What a great find! We stayed in one of the lower rooms, but after being there if you can, absolutely get one of the suites located above the trees, the view is unbelievable. Lucky for us they designed the lodge so everyone has an opportunity to catch this view from the restaurant. The staff is very nice and helpful, the breakfast and dinner views are unbeatable, and we had a great stay at Moana lodge. Also if you get the chance the hidden beach south of the hotel is awesome, tucked away behind the big rock you can see on the left from the restaurant. There is a fantastic tidepool there and nice quiet laid back spot to chill. They do have a couple of naughty dogs that were sort of mascots, that had a habit of barking at night, but other than that the place was great.
Oh, and Bruno... we never could get the hot tub to work but the pool and the hanging beds were awesome.
