I stayed here with my spouse for a few days when we visited Kauai. Since we are members of the hotel's reward club, we were given a free upgrade to an ocean-front room. The rooms are large (especially the bathrooms) and have higher-end ammentities (shampoo, lotion, etc).
The hotel itself was very clean and well-decorated. The pool and spa area were relaxing and decorated in a very Hawaiian (but not cheesy) fashion.
The staff was extremely helpful and were able to book massage appointments (there is no on-site spa so the therapists have to be scheduled to be on-site), recommend dining and provided maps to navigate around the island.
There is also one small on-site restaurant that serves a great dinner. The service was a bit slow, but it's Hawaii, so I expected that.
My only complaint would be to expand the breakfast buffet. Yes, it's included so I can't really complain, but it would be nice to see an expanded set of offerings and some higher quality fruit.
Overall, I plan to return to this hotel. It is small, but it's a nice change from the hustle and bustle of some of the larger resorts in the area!
