Fabulous beach experience.

Despite a rocky start (room not ready), it was quite comfortable & location was great. Staff seemed helpful. Would return.

Beautiful and right on the beach

I had a little bit of a rough start, but was really late when we checked in. After that the hotel was very accomodating, had a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave most any utensils you would need to make it less costly for eating and drinking after a visit to costco. Had maid service daily. A beatiful view of both beach and mountains and I did not even choose the beach view (less money). Easy access to the Whalers village which was shopping and entertainment. Many hotels and restaurants within walking distance. Only complaint was had to rent a car no airport shuttle and airport 45 min away. Beaches very clean, nice pool and hot tub.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Book the road to Hana as a tour rather than do it yourself, hotel staff very helpful in booking and they pick you up right in front. The drive it yourself is dangerous and very nerve racking, whereas the tour is friendly fun and includes breakfast and lunch.

Very rude staff at front desk. No parking

Good location.  Lots of remodeling going on.  Drilling, pounding etc.  Nice view, decent condo.  VERY VERY POOR PARKING!    THE STAFF AT FRONT DESK IS VERY RUDE. There is nothing worse than driving around with a bag of groceries then having to park at whalers village and pay $12.oo per day, then drag your ice and bags up a very poorly lighted long drive.  We heard many people complain of this. We complained at the front desk and were told to park our car in front of lobby, tell the front desk and security would find us a place on the lot.   Well we did that, waited over an hour, left our car in front and got a nasty note that we would be towed next time.   Upon checking out staff blamed us for not coming in to complain to them.   When we told that we had complained they said we had to take it up with the board. When I asked if the woman at the front desk was having a bad day she just gave me a dirty look.    When I suggested that the staff should park off lot so tenants could park on the property the woman at the front desk turned her back on me and walked away.   It only makes sense that management could secure enough parking for their staff especially at high season so tenants could find parking.   Many of the tenants are retired and over 65.   I won't stay here again I don't appreciate the way I was treated.   We had no other problem except with staff at the front desk and the staff at the front gate.

Great Family Vacation

The trip was very nice. The room was beautiful and spacious. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Whalers set up our whale watch. It would have been nicer if they had some more kid friendly things such as a pool for little ones. The trip we took in June of 2010 was a little nicer only because we stayed at a place that had more things for little ones.

studio

We stayed in a studio,which was perfect for our needs. A great location next to the Whalers Village. On a GREAT beach. We could see the ocean and the mountains from the lanai. I would stay here again. The staff were very friendly.

Good value for the dollar

The Whaler has a great location. The room was nice and we liked that the vanity area was separate form the shower area.We felt the cleaning of the room was off abit and we had to remind them to refresh our coffee supply.

Don't get a room facing the Whaler Village or you will hear the sound of deliverery trucks.
