We were greeted at check in by Aloha (yes that was her name) probably the best person I have ever encountered in this position. She was friendly and very informative! Our room was across the street from the lobby/pools/activities. The room was spacious, clean and set up with the geese folded towels on the bed. The floors in the room were very interesting. Still curious about what material was used in the kitchen/dining. Possibly LEED material?
I was struck on the first night with HOW QUIET it was. I have been in the country before, but this was even quieter...so peaceful.
We were about 2 miles from the shops and could shuttle or drive. Sometimes after or before drinks the shuttle was very handy!
We did walk a couple of times and did the lava trail. Wear proper shoes. My husband sprained his ankle on our walk to dinner. On our shuttle ride back, he and I were simply talking about getting some ice when we got back to the room. The driver overheard us and called ahead for ice to our room. That is service!!
It was there minutes after we arrived.
They offered a buy one get one breakfast buffet for one morning and we did take advantage. IT was a very nice spread of waffles, french toast, rice, sausage, bacon, coconut syrup, fruit....
My only complaint was the coffee. The room coffee was less than stellar and I bought a coffee and an americano at the dining area and they were very weak.
There is a Starbucks at one shopping area and coffee at the ABC (different name).
Pools were nice. We used the adult pool and enjoyed chatting at the hot tub with the other travelers.
Another plus....there was a book explaining how EVERYTHING in the room worked! How often do you have an appliance that you aren't familiar with and spend 10 minutes messing with it? This detailed why we couldn't get the clothes washer to work. Energy saving feature! :)
Overall a peaceful and beautiful location! Will return!
