My family and I (2 adults/2toddlers) stayed here as a gift from friends for our Easter holiday. We stayed in the Alii building on the 3rd floor in one bedroom. It was very comfortable, with all the amenities of a small apartment (fully kitchen, washer/dryer, TVs with cable in the bedroom and living room, and a balcony). The road (15mph) was in front of our balcony that was up against rocks where visitors would snorkel every morning. The breeze and sound of the ocean was great from our room. The are two pools on the property, and we were able to take our boys in (NO flotation devices allowed) during the early part of the day without interrupting anyone else.
The property is 30 minutes from the main airport and five minutes to town where we were able to purchase groceries and grab a bite to eat. We did not take advantage of any of the scheduled activities, instead opting to drive around the island to visit the National Parks.
There was no option for eating on the property, and any room cleaning throughout the stay came with a charge (including asking for additional clean towels). However, we did have an ample amount of linens and were able to wash them if we ran out.
One time that was a bit of a concern with the presence of mites and mosquitoes. I am not quite sure, but I believe there was a still pond at the front of the property that seemed to attract mosquitoes, and any time we left the screen to the balcony open or sat outside on the balcony my husband was attacked and mosquitoes made it into the living room. We even found one in the curtains of our bedroom one morning. As for mites, the sofa was infested with mites that bit my husband and one of my toddlers multiple times. We had to use a sheet from the bedroom to cover the sofa so that we would be able to sit on it during the day.

My husband and I spent our 5th year wedding anniversary on this island. This hotel was very nice and has beautiful view of the ocean. The room was very spacious and clean and fully equipped staff was nice. We definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: we stayed in the Ali building on the second floor. There was a nice breeze at night

We've been coming here for ten years and stay every year for a month and after talking to several others on the property, we find that we are a couple of the newest residents on the property. Love the location-right across the street from the best snorkeling/scuba beaches on the island and the Beach House Restaurant and just down the street from one of the newest shopping centers. Practically every room has a dynamite view of the water. Just know there are few rooms with air conditioning, so if you're looking for that-be sure to ask!

Room Tip: Alihi and Banyan on floors 2 thru 4 have the best views of the water and Coral looks out over the ga...

We had a great one week stay at the Lawai Beach Resort! Our one bedroom unit on the third floor of the Banyan building was perfect; and the unit was spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. We were absolutely thrilled with the 180 degree ocean view and could even hear the ocean at night! The hotel grounds were nicely kept, and we wish we had had time for the resort activities but were gone during the day. The resort staff were always friendly and efficient and made us feel at home. The manager pays special attention to guest satisfaction which helped contribute to the enjoyment of our stay. We noticed too that the 10 PM no noise rule was enforced which was nice as our unit overlooked the pool. The concierge staff was not only extremely helpful but they were genuinely interested in making the best recommendations for us. Their island orientation meeting with presentations by local tour guides was especially informative and was definitely well worth attending for us as we won a tour in one of several drawings! This is the first time we stayed in the south of the island and we found less traffic and still were close to many attractions. The resort is in the best location with just a short drive to local shopping and restaurants, and we especially liked the little nearby town of Koloa.

Room Tip: Great views from the Ali and Banyan buildings.

We love staying at Lawai beach resort. The snorkeling right in front of the resort is some of the best on the island as well as the best sunsets. people come to snorkel at the beach and come watch the sunset. The furnishings are great and the kitchen utensils available are everything you need.
Beach towels are provided and washer dryers are in the unit.
