This is an update from an earlier review.
This is our 3rd stay at Kamaole Sands; previously in Bldg #5 top floor, overlooking pool. This time we are on 2nd floor of Building #7 and it's a different experience for sure!
We are surrounded by 3 very busy BBQ stations - 1 directly to the left, 1 to the right and another our front. Each station has 4 or 5 grills in it and big picnic tables for groups. The cooking starts as early as 4:30 pm and goes through to 8 most nights. If you are not keen on BBQ grill smell for 4 hours each night, building 7 isn't for you! Additionally some mornings the BBQ cleaning process involves firing them up again - so you could have BBQ grill smell early in the morning too.
Also with the picnic tables, groups gather and have their meals there and the noise levels here are really echo-y. We overlook the beautiful gardens - plus and minus - since a lot of little kids run wild in the grassy area, yelling loudly as kids generally do when they are running around ... again, the echo-y. Its way quieter over the pool area (at least on top floor).
While the noises are usually done around 9 or 9:30, we'll never stay in this building again. This is a nice complex and the location is perfect for us, so we'd stay again in the right building; one closer to the road and away from the BBQs for instance. This is definitely a family resort, but there are a really lot of little kids here this trip.
Our condo is nice enough - but as you'll read in these reviews, the actual units vary widely depending on their owners. We like this one.
