Great retreat

The location is great if you would like to get away from the hustle of Honolulu. The service of the staff was great, they were very respectable. The only issue is from the amount of the resort fees you will be charged during check out. Overall a very great place, I would most likely be back.

Feel like being pampered?

My husband and I decided to have a stay-cation on the island of Oahu. This hotel is about an hours drive out of the Waikiki district which was perfect because it gave us privacy and we didn't want to do the tourist scene. The hotel has wonderful amenities but is sprawled out so that you don't feel cramped. Lots of room for walking around and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. At night, there are enough nightspots to enjoy fine dining and a relaxing cocktail. The hotel is pricey and they have a captive audience, but to me, it was worth it. The weight room is small and claustrophobic. There is not enough room for floorwork, but the exercise equipment is top of the line. And finally, our beautiful junior suite faced the Aulani hotel. The afternoon events at the Aulani was noisy so expect that if you plan to sit on the lounge chairs on the lanai.

Great honeymoon

My husband and I stayed for a week for our honeymoon in 2005 and we absolutely loved it. The honeymoon suite was beautiful. Upon arrival, a fresh bowl of chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine was placed in our suite. The staff was very attentive. We are now booking reservations to go back with our children.

Romantic getaway

My fiancee and I decided to do a weekend getaway at your hotel and found it to be very nice. The hotel itself is a bit plain, but the rooms were beautiful, particularly the bathroom, and the lanai was very nice with a great view as well. Staff was always very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would comment on negatively is that the pool was a bit small/cramped, and the staff was very strict. Despite being guests at the hotel and being in my late twenties, we were refused drink service until we returned to our rooms to get our IDs (couldn't they look that up?). What also frustrated me was that my license was expired by one week, and they actually refused to serve me. ONE week. A bit ridiculous... But all in all, besides that hiccup, the hotel was very pleasant and I had a wonderful time.

Staycation to die for!

Upon checking in, we were informed that the maids were not done with the Mtn View rooms, so we were upgraded to a Ocean View Room for free! I don't know if we got the suite, but let me tell you how sweet it was! The birthday girl, our friends, and I were soooo happy and impressed with our service every step of the way, from the checkin and out to the bag delivery and questions answered. The restaurants, Azul and Naupaka Terrace, were so amazing and gave us the best seats in the house. I will def be back, no doubt about it!

Sweet

Since there are now more places to choose from to eat and hang out the area is so much better than being in congested Waikiki Located so it's easy to drive to the north shore or places of interest around the island. The hotel offers a great spa and gym as well as private beach and relaxing atmosphere

Beautiful Place

Overall the resort was great and I'd stay there again. We had 3 people in a standard room (2 adults and 1 child in a roll-away bed). If you have more than 2 people in your party you will want the 1-bedroom unit as we were very crowded in the living area.

My husband and I were so impressed by how personable the staff were. Downright friendly people with whom we had many enjoyable conversations. Made our honeymoon more than just a vacation. We feel like we have friends we want to come back to visit.
