This condominium got a major refresh in 2014, and it’s still looking good with a new garden pool. The main building is nine stories high, and you may need to get above sixth floor in some units before the good views kick in. The best views are from the four-story low-rise units that overlook the ocean with Moloka‘i in the background.

The wedding gazebo offers pretty good privacy for those with nuptials on their minds, and photos from there should have a pretty background. (They offer one free photo anywhere on property to guests.) They have a nice fitness center, but you have to pay $5 extra to use it, because it’s not owned by the resort. Their keiki program is $35 a pop (plus a one-time $10 registration fee for a T-shirt) and includes lunch, but it’s not available every day. Casabellas (two chairs with cover) by the pool and around the property will run you $39 a day. There is also a beauty salon and day spa on site with a beachfront massage area. Basically there’s lots to keep you busy here, including pickle-ball (a cross between badminton, tennis and ping-pong), shuffleboard, yoga classes for an extra fee, hula lessons, lei-making, a weekly hula show, etc.

The hotel-type rooms are tiny with queen beds and coffee makers (during the remodel they oddly decided to remove the fridges), but all other rooms have complete kitchens. There’s a supermarket across the street. Washer/dryers in 1/1s and 2/2s only; others use coin-op.

Most rooms are sold as packages, so odds are you’ll pay a lot less than published rates. We hope so, because the rack rates are overpriced. Spartan 225-sq.-ft., hotel-type rooms (which don’t have lanais) are $435, studios (600 sq. ft.) are $485, 1/1s (907 sq. ft.) are $515–$655, 2/2s (1,231 sq. ft.) are $809–$965, suites (2,005 sq. ft.) are $1,039–$1,275. The large spread varies with the season and the view.
