Great hotel Posted Mar 24, 2015
We arrived with other groups of tourists, so there was a wait for check-in. We were given a beautiful room in Diamond Head Tower, but it faced the rear and deliveries were made every half hour during the night. When I asked for a different room, they moved us to the Kalia Tower, which was much quieter, but an older hotel. Amenities at the hotel were great, free towels for the beach/pools, free movies, free gaming. Food is quite expensive, but we got our drinks and snacks from the ABC Store, right downstairs, and we had a refrigerator in our room. This was very convenient. If you're staying awhile, take the bus to the bus office and buy a pass. Rides are $2.50 each way, but only $1 with the card. Good to know ahead of time. Tropics Bar/Grill was where we ate on Friday night, being able to watch the fireworks from our table. Drinks were good, try the Hawaii 5-0. I liked having everything at the hotel, leaving the area only for sightseeing and restaurants, and shopping. We will return here.
