Pono Kai is a condo complex, not a hotel. So there is no bar or gym or restaurant - but all those things are close by, most in walking distance.
The units are basic, but clean, comfortable and fairly well arranged in lushly landscaped grounds, right on the ocean, and many have been redone recently and some (ours) have new AC units - unneeded during our stay. We stayed in Building B, about 20 paces from the water, a wonderful setting for watching sunrise every morning. Athough the noises from other units can sometimes be heard, the complex is quite calm and quiets down early each night. Units have full kitchens, high-speed cable internet ($10/day extra), and balconies facing the ocean.
There is a walkway on the ocean side that extends for several miles - great for exercise and even better for people watching. Locals use it too.
The pool is tiny. The beach in front is diminishing and never was terrific, but nice ones are a short drive away.
Know what you are getting, and you will have a wonderful stay. We will definitely go back.
