No thanks for what they called a upgrade. When they finally got the party next door under control. After 3 calls for security. The bar started. If you can sleep in front of the speakers at a rock concert. No relief till 2 am and then the trash trucks and workers cleaning up started at 6 am this morning. So...

We checked in and checked right back out. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating - a big thank you for understanding!The noise from the outside was overwhelming and the cost of the room was solely for being beachfront. My daughter and I both have anxiety and the environment threatened to push us into panic attacks. Bottom line -...

Lani Kai Island Resort hotel is a beautiful, wonderful place to vacation all year long, especially in the winter months. Robert Conidaris is the most hospitable, gracious host. The employees are very friendly and helpful.

The food at the Lani Kai is outstanding, a little pricey but not bad, the view from the upper deck restaurant (6th) floor is remarkable. It is right on the beach and they have entertainment every day on the Sand. Great Place

This is indeed the worst place I have ever stayed. The building was old and run down. The rooms were disgusting, there were three different types of floor tiles and the studio kitchen was probably 40 years old. It was full of partying college kids. The noise was unbelievable, it was impossible to read on the beach or sleep at...

They need to tear the building down and start all over again. It's just a grungy hotel on the beach. If you looking someplace cheap to stay with cheap liquor at the bar so you can get drunk this is your type of place.

The most rude staff you'll ever get to meet. Aside from a few bartenders, the entire staff is completely rude and vulgar. We had to wait an extra 2 hours to check in without a single apology, management was never concerned with our complaints, and security was violent and antagonizing. To pile on, as we were sitting at a restaurant...

This place is cool during spring break week and seems to be "the place" for day time partying. That said, you'll either enjoy the polarized age separation of the crowd, or you won't. Picture loads of "snowbirds" from the Midwest, eastern seaboard and Canada "Oh Canada, my home and native land..." mixed with the college crowd on their junior year...
