In that they are an independently owned hotel, they really need to please to get return customers to stay in business. No big company backing them up. Sooo, they advertise as being the most Hawaiian of all the hotels. They have nightly entertainment, including hula, by the tiki bar. The tiki grill was pretty dlow but food was fairly good. They have a welcome breakfast to guide you in activity selections, the hotel free ones as well as those costing money. They even throw in a little magic show to give you some preview of the magic show they have in their hotel. The location is great. Right on Ka'anapali beach, our room looked out over Black Rock and we could watch the jumpers from our balcony. It is just one property over, and a short walk to Whaler's Village, with many shops and restaurants. Parking is $10 a day and you need your room key to get in and our. Make sure you hang on to one after checkout so you can leave. If that doesn't work, there is an intercom to help you. Spots are a little narrow, but not too bad in the three level garage. Upper level is not covered so cars get hot there. The hotel is older, but kept up pretty well. Elevator by the parking garage is aggravatingly slow. Breakfast buffet was included in our stay, but they brought out a bill showing you that it is a $17 dollar breakfast., that you don't have to pay for, $0 balance, but if you are basing your tip on the cost, here is the breakdown. Tip charts seem to be common in Hawaii. Service varied by the morning, but you can get other drinks besides water and coffee brought to you.
The room was pretty nice, they all look out to the large courtyard, pool, and ocean. There is a keyed safe that they charge you $1.50 a day to use. You can specify how many days you actially used it for the bill.
They have a very nice going away ceremony, complete with kukui nut leis. Our presenter even got emotional in her goodbyes. They really do care and it shows.
