I had an amazing time at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, my “Partial View Ocean” room was fantastic, and the rooms were comfortable. I think the rooms should have microwave.

We were there for six nights and had a wonderful experience. The check in clerk changed our room from what he considered a noisy side of the resort to a wonderful room with a very pleasant view. We were able to enjoy the luau entertainment each night and the beating of the waves against the lava shoreline. Room service was excellent. The on-site bar and breakfast dining area made for a very relaxing morning and sunset. Would stay again if we were to return to The Big Island.
