"Nice hotel close to the beach. Like, really close!"
The ocean view was awesome, although to the left was construction...I just try not to look to my left but it wasn't noisey plus I wasn't there half the day so by the time I'm back they're off and gone. Clean hotel rooms and great service!

I have stayed here at various times since the 1950s. It has gone through changes. I love that it is right on the beach - although there is not so much of it as the pool has taken up space. I miss the wide lawns from Kalakaua to the entrance, now filled with other hotels. But they have retained the sunset music by the beach and the simple & gracious décor, even to the rooftops evoking the little bungalows they replaced. I was glad to see lots of families.

"Nice hotel, beautiful pools, good central location"
We booked 2 rooms for 5 people for 8 days. Wanted to stay in the Lihue/Kapaa area for convenience to all sides of the island. Found this wonderful property on Expedia. Although the rooms are starting to get dated, they were clean and nicely furnished. And the common areas were top notch: multiple pools with waterfall features and a water slide, hot tub, sand pool, pool side food & drinks, etc. Restaurants were great. Different resort activities every day (build your own lei, luau, yoga, etc). The lobby, gift shop, business areas were all newer, clean, and well appointed. We stayed in one of the mountain facing rooms (mauka side). It was nice and peaceful just sitting in the lanai (back porch) overlooking green fields and mountains. Our 10 year old son was traveling with us -- he enjoyed all of the pools, the adjoining beach, the DVD and PS3 video game rentals included in the resort fee, and the nearby Lydgate keiki beach and Kalamani playground (about 2 miles away). I would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend.
