Positive Reviews


Snorkeling with Sea Turtles!

The resort is on its own private bay filled with tropical fish, manta rays, eels and sea turtles. Snorkeling is a favorite activity here and guests say it's a great lagoon for kids. By all reports, swimming with the native Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles and watching them bask on the shoreline each afternoon is amazing.


The Beach

Beach lovers say the bay provides a private cove that's calm and great for kids. The water's gentle, the sand is soft and there are all kinds of water activities like kayaking and fishing.


Relaxing, Getaway Atmosphere

You could spend days at the beach snorkeling, relaxing by the pool and eating dinner on the waterfront and never leave the resort. Guests say there's really no reason to leave, unless you want to explore the area. Those that do, enjoy coming back to the resort to relax.

Negative Reviews


Ocean Views are Not All the Same

The resort is ocean-front but some rooms have better ocean views than others. Guests advise double-checking your reservation and making sure you understand what type of room you're booking.


Service Can Be Hit or Miss

Guests say some of the staff here are suburb, but not all, and not all the time. Service appears to be inconsistent with some guests complaining they expect better from a hotel of this quality.


Pool Needs an Upgrade

While the pool area is lovely and large, guests say there are missing tiles and some maintenance issues. An upgrade is reportedly planned for the near future.
