NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. This is a party resort for pot smoking drunk people. Do not bring children here. We were there for an hour and the smell of weed coming from the adjoining room was ridiculous. We ended up checking out within an hour and a half of our arrival and going to another hotel for the night.

This hotel is for partiers. Loud music until 11 or 1:00, lots of drunk people around. Staff setting up chairs were rude. Downstairs bathrooms were unbelievably dirty. Rooms were ok, though easily heard sounds from other rooms. View was fantastic. Would recommend coming mid-week when it is less crowded and loud.

Thanks for the feedback! We are definitely a livelier hotel, and we understand that it isn't for everyone. We're still glad you gave us a try though, and hopefully if you do stay with us again, we can try and get you in a quieter location in the hotel.

Everything you needed was at the hotel. Restaurant, entertainment, sandy beaches, clean rooms

The location and the architecture of the building was great every room has a balcony and faces the beach and the gulf, which is wonderful . I’m 60+ yrs old, And seven nights a week they have blasting music till one or 2 o’clock in the morning which would break a sound ordinance in any other town. if they would tone the volume down, it would sound better, quality wise , That being said I probably won’t stay there again because it’s more for 20-year-olds only because of the loudness of the music and for seven nights aweek just too much for me other than that it was perfect .

Thanks for the feedback! We're happy to hear you had an enjoyable experience with us outside of the music. If you do decide to stay with us again, we do have locations in the hotel that are further away from the music, and hopefully we can get you in one of those. We hope to see you again soon!

Incredibly loud no clear cutoff time for it to be quiet at night. Room was not ready until 255 pm and even then it wasn’t clear it would be ready at 3 until I stated at 3 I expected a discount.

We're sorry to hear about the issues you had. Our check in time is at 3pm, and sometimes the room won't be ready until exactly at 3pm as stated. We can't ever guarantee earlier check in than that unfortunately.

We are a historic hotel in the heart of the island. Our building is kept in a way to keep its nostalgic feel. During Spring Break season we do have live bands, Dj's as courtesy entertainment for our guests. We do apologize if you felt the outside area was not kept clean. We have staff in grounds, and housekeeping working 24 hrs during spring break to keep everything maintained. Upon your next visit to the Lani Kai, should you find anything not to your liking, please call the front desk. We will attend to your requirements promptly.

Great location near everything. It's a party place with lots of entertainment. Can be loud, even in your room. Chairs and Umbrellas are not owned by the resort - 3rd party - ~$28 for 2 chairs for the day. Great beach, meal options, happy hours, shops, entertainment on site.
