We just like the feel of this place on every visit. It’s relaxing, laid back and not too big. This resort has been through many management changes, but its latest is one of the better ones. In 2016 they renovated most of the rooms, lobby and common areas. The new room decor (now called “Deluxe”) is modern and makes the space feel much larger than its 320 sq. ft. They have left some rooms unrenovated, but those are still very well-maintained and can be had for a better rate. The lanai are small here, just barely room for chairs. If you opt for ocean view, ask for one of the ocean-facing end units in Bldg. 4. Otherwise, spring for a pool view, most of which can catch a view of the ocean. Adjoining rooms available.

This resort, located between Lihu‘e and Wailua, is near a pretty but relatively unswimmable beach. (A short walk farther north leads to better parts of Nukoli‘i Beach.) The saline pools are the star here. They’ve augmented their other 3 pools with a wonderful half-sand-lined pool and a water slide complete with man-made waterfalls. They have added more umbrellas around the pool for extra shade. (If it gets too hot, head over to their shave ice/ice cream stand—a sweet touch! Stick with the keiki size.) Service has improved markedly, to the point that it competes with higher-end resorts (but you may need to head over to the pool bar for a drink since there’s no poolside service), and they keep things very clean. The staff is very warm here. They charge a mandatory $25 per day “amenity” fee, which includes internet, valet or self-parking, local calls, room safe, fitness room and some other items. Lots of daily activities here. At night the lounge with an outdoor firepit is the spot to be seen.

Rack Rates are high at $338–$498, but few pay them. Suites (655–1,253 sq. ft.) are $600–$1,300. Many good discounts and packages are available.

What Readers Have to Say

“…one of the best ever travel books about anywhere! One of the few I have read cover-to-cover. So much new information for someone who thought he was already well-informed…Your brief history of the islands, Captain Cook, etc, is the best I have ever seen for so few pages!”
