Only stayed here one night to be close to the airport for an early flight, but I was impressed with the quality for the money. It is very centrally located, only a few minutes to Kapaa and Lihue. We booked a garden/mountain view room, but had a large "partial" ocean view from the lanai. I've seen a lot of hotels offer far less view of the ocean in rooms billed as ocean view. (Not sure if we were upgraded or if that's just what they consider a garden view here.) The room itself was quite comfy, and I liked the island plantation style.
The pool area was quite nice. As many have said, the beach is more for looking than swimming, but that's what you get on the windward side. We didn't eat in any of the restaurants, so I can't comment there.
Dislike the parking fee, but almost all the resorts are doing it now. The cell reception was weak to non-existant -- not their fault but something to be aware of.
Bottom line: this place was much nicer than similarly priced hotels in Lihue/Kapaa and just as nice as another hotel I've used in the area that costs significantly more. I would definitely stay here again.
