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. 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. Renovations are planned for sometime in 2020. The lanais 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 three pools with a wonderful half-sand-lined pool and a water slide complete with man-made waterfalls. They have plenty of 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, and they keep things very clean. The staff is very warm here. Lots of free daily activities here from yoga to Hawaiian language lessons to making your own Hawaiian bath salts to bring back home. At night the lounge, which has live music most nights and an outdoor fire pit, is the spot to be seen.

Rack Rates are high at $368–$445, but few pay them. Suites (655–1,253 sq. ft.) are $700–$1,500. Many good discounts and packages are available.

What Readers Have to Say

“I purchased all four of your Hawaii guidebooks – the most recent editions – and they are excellent resources! Great maps, photos, and descriptions. I really like your fun and slightly irreverent writing style, and the way you organize all the information makes it very straightforward to use. I even bought second copies of your Maui Revealed and Big Island Revealed books as a Christmas present to friends who traveled to those islands over the holidays. Even though my friends aren’t really guidebook people, they used both books and reported that they were the perfect info source to have along. So, THANKS for the great series of books, and please keep it up. I’ll look forward to subsequent editions.”
