We found this resort very good for us, it was close to shops, restaurants, and a nice beach, the room had everything we needed, kitchen, laundry, balcony with a nice view of the harbour, the resort had a nice pool area, the only thing is that it has no lift which was ok for us, but there is a few...

A very nice place.. Very convenient to get to north or south. 2 small malls nearby. Staff was excellent. Chickens are crowing in the morning, but I slept in back bedroom and heard nothing. Parking can be difficult. I definitely will stay here again.

I was there for business and this facility was already paid for me. I stayed in a two bedroom, two bath room. The room was clean and comfortable and with complete kitchen, stove, dishwasher updated with marble countertops. Pool was far but pleasurable. Pool needed to be cleaned with debris but the salt water was awesome. Parking was not so...

Mahalo for your feedback on our property/ Staff & WiFi. We are continually upgrading our WiFi system to cover the ever increasing number of enabled devices we all travel with. Its amazing that today when I travel, I have an average of 3-4 devices (phone, Kindle, ipad and laptop). If I'm with my wife we have 6 devices between us,...

We spent the 4th of July weekend at this centrally located resort in Lihue. The grand kids had a great time swimming in the good size pool, playing shuffle board, basketball and even tennis! We were able to view the awesome fireworks, "concert in the sky", with the other guests and their families from the pool area. Everyone applauded after...

This is a great place if your staying for several days or more. The unit I rented had a complete kitchen, washer and dryer, and sleeper sofa in the living room. Although there was only one air conditioner in the living room, the cool air migrated to the bedroom and overhead fan kept that room comfortable. The ground floor unit...

Plain, no frills resort, although, the resort isn't very resort like. Almost seems like you are staying in an apartment complex. But despite that, the unit was spacious and clean. Not much of a view from our unit but you can see the harbor and cruise ships. Staff is amazing and super friendly. Best feature of this resort is its...

The resort was very close to the airport and within walking distance of a beach. The accommodations are somewhat dated but fairly comfortable. The staff and resort work hard to be accommodating by providing beach chairs, toys, towels, etc. and helping with tours. The location is right off of the main road, so it was pretty noisy and the grounds...
