Everything about staying here was absolutely perfect. The unit was clean and comfortable and was directly overlooking the ocean. The highlight was the pool with two waterslides and a lazy river. It made us not want to leave the resort!
We were thrilled with this condo and property! The condo was clean, comfy, and beautiful with everything we could’ve needed! Our only regret is that we didn’t get to stay long enough!
Amazing room and resort. Can’t wait to stay again.
The property was clean, well maintained. The condo was incredible. The kitchen was so fun to cook in,
Amazing oceanfront condo!!
The four of us loved our four nights at this beautiful condo! The view is incredible and the interior is very homey and comfortable. The resort itself is also very nice with a large pool, relaxing hot tubs, and right next to Waipouli Beach. You won't find a better place if you're staying in Lihue!
Beautiful property, private, quiet and clean plus great central location.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay. The unit was clean private and we loved the beach and ocean views. The complex was quiet and nothing disturbed us during our stay. We would stay here again.
However, there were some things that could have been better.
The beds were not as comfortable as I would have hoped them to be. Seemed a little worn out. The pillows were poly fiber filled. At these rates I would have hoped for nice, down or memory foam pillows topping high-end mattresses.
The kitchen was not well stocked. Just iodized salt, pepper and garlic in the spice rack, and a small plastic cup with sugar packets. No cooking oil, butter, or other spices to cook with. No tinfoil, plastic wrap, or plastic bags.
There was one roll of paper towels in the kitchen. No extras. We felt like we had to ration paper towels. There should be at least one extra roll in the unit. I shouldn’t have to call housekeeping for that.
The towels in the unit were thin, worn out and rough terry cloth, not the thick luxurious cotton you’d expect at a high end resort or hotel. Same with the pool towels.
The dining room table had only three chairs. For a unit that sleeps six, the table ought to at least seat four.
The technology/entertainment could use a refresher too. The TV in the living room is small (32” maybe?). I know people don’t go on vacation to watch a bunch of TV, but it was very rainy at times, and at night, it’s what we wanted to do. Walking around the complex, I could see many other rooms had newer 55” or greater TVs in the living room, and that’s what this “crown jewel” should have as well.
The elevator up to the unit is very slow and makes some disconcerting clangs and bangs when riding in it, and at one point I got stuck in it for ten minutes while none of the buttons responded. It eventually let me out when someone else came along to use it. That was honestly terrifying for me and nearly triggered an anxiety attack. I consider that experience highly unacceptable. Two other times when we tried to use the elevator it was out of service.
While the resort staff did enforce the no glass by the pool rule strictly, they did not enforce the no kids in the hot tub rule, and almost every time we went to use the hot tub except for after dark, there were kids, and even babies in it. That rule needs to be enforced.
Parking lot was crowded and spaces were small. I noted many cars in the lot without tags. That should also be enforced.
