Units are roomy, very nicely furnished and appear brand new. If you can afford it – get an ocean-view room, you will NOT be disappointed by the views. I holiday frequently, all over the world, and I’ve never seen a more beautiful view in my life than from this resort. It’s well worth it. Despite being more apartment style accommodation (full kitchen, with cooking utilities, etc) than hotel room, they still provide all the hotel style services you’d expect from a hotel such as daily maid service, 24hr reception and bellhops. From memory, I don’t think they had in-room dining which was a bit of a shame…
The staff are super friendly and helpful, I found everyone was very laid back but still efficient and approachable and I found other resort staff were pushy and too rule-oriented, not so here… and I like that.
The grounds are massive and beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The pool areas are fantastic with stunning gazebos and kabanas available to rent, loads of pool toys available to rent and buy, cocktails flowing all day, and pool side meals on demand. Again, a lot of other resorts and water parks really annoy me with too many pushy rules and regulations, too quick to forget whose actually the paying guest… That wasn’t the case here, this place is much more laid back and friendly without compromising on safety.
There’s a quiet relaxing pool for adults as well as waterslides and adventure pools for kids and a party pool as well near the bar. The beach is directly adjoining the resort and the reef isn’t the best I’ve seen, but it makes for some ok snorkeling all the same.
In front of the resort is a large shopping complex with basically everything you could ever need from snorkel gear to physiotherapy to groceries, etc. Would be nice to see a bank here, but other than that, you got everything you need on hand.
The in-resort restaurant is beautiful both in its appointment and its menu. And the prices were very reasonable! I had a 2 course dinner with my family of 4, including cocktails, and it came to $90 which blew me away for the quality of the place.
I plan to return to this place in October and this time I’m bringing a much larger group of guests and going to book even larger rooms and facilities – this place is my new BFF. Thanks for having us Honua Kai!
