I previously have written very positive reviews about the Lani Kai, but my satisfaction level with this place is dropping quickly. I come here about twice a year, eat in their restaurants (I love the Island View restaurant food), drink at their bars and stay over a night or two. It is a place for fun and not a 5...

With a perfect view over the beach. Lively entertainment and a great sun deck on the top floor where you can get awesome cocktails and the calamari was...

First of all, Lani Kai is where you stay to have fun. It's not for those who want peace and quiet or go to bed early & not necessarily ideal for small children. The location is perfect, the rooms were spruced up a bit recently, they're not top notch but much better than before. The overall resort is older and...

We stayed here in 2016. We realized it is a bit outdated and is known to be the "party" place to stay but..... we learned which side of the resort to request our room to be located on. We just stayed for 6 days this month. Our room was located above the band stage. It was so loud until 2...
