“Great bang for the buck”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

This resort was a very pleasant surprise for us. On a budget, we were not expecting high luxury and with its dated construction, it is what it is. But when we saw the gorgeous views and cheerful decor not to mention the full kitchen and spacious living space, this place was fantastic and I would return in a heartbeat. They have a pool which seemed sufficient but we didn't come to Kauai to hang out at a pool. Located on the east side of the island, it is right between the north and south ends which are the more popular tourist spots if you are looking for the beach experience out your front door. We were interested in exploring the island so this location was perfect and the beaches are all close by car anyway. The town nearby is more where the locals live and this was interesting in itself--also convenient for grocery shopping and dining out. There is nothing you can do about the rampant roosters on the island other than pack earplugs so plan on some early nights because you will be woken with their crows starting way too early. We saved a ton by eating in and were able to spend our money on the fun stuff like riding in a helicopter.... all in all a great vacation and resort.

Room Tip: Just ask for a room facing the ocean--gorgeous from any angle.

Furnishings were a little dated, but location and overall accommodations were terrific. No air conditioning, but it wasn't missed; the ocean breeze more than made up for it. We'll return next year!

Room Tip: Our one-bedroom unit had 1 1/2 baths and was more than adequate for two people.

We booked a condo thru Hotels.com. I had originally requested a 1 bdrm, but found that they had upgraded us to a 2 bdrm (#122)on our late arrival. I liked this method, because we stayed 8 nights and have found that many individual rentals are for weekly periods only and require a damage deposit. Anyway, the location was perfect for us and an excellent base to tour the island. It is also a short drive from the airport. The beach (very clean) is about 200 ft. outside the glass doors, but is not swimmable because of the undercurrents. Nevertheless, a sheltered swimming area is just a short walk away. The view of the sunrise is somewhat obscured by the trees on the beach, but did not detract that much. Our friends had a 2nd floor 1 bdrm(# 217) in which the view was much better. The furnishing of #122 are nicely upgraded and have granite countertops. There are several gas grills around the resort. Be sure to buy Hawaiian beef or ahi steaks to grill. We found Safeway has the best variety. There is no AC, but you really don't need one. There are alarm clocks also, but you won't need those either. (A smiley face icon goes here!) We did need a speaker phone for a conference call during our stay, and the manager was so generous to lend us their office phone for the call. I guess because we were staying 8 nights, our condo was cleaned 3 times! What a great place! We will definitely stay here when we come back. Larry & Kelly, Georgetown, Texas

Room Tip: Request an ocean view room.

Everything was great, from the warm welcome when we checked in to the lovely room we stayed in. We had an excellent view of the pool AND the ocean. Who could ask for anything more? We have already made reservations to stay here at the end of our trip.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are wonderful. Top floors have nice breezes.

Really enjoyed our five day stay at this condo complex. The condo was well equipped and maintained, staff and residents were friendly, and the location was close to the airport yet quiet as it was surrounded by state park and golf course, and ocean front. The location provided a good jumping off point for touring the area and south part of the island before we explored the north. Would not hesitate to return to this property or refer it to others.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our stay on the ground level as it provided good access to the beach.
