                  Dislikea/The hotel is old and run down. It needs updating. I asked for a quiet room and heard machinery all night. I requested a comp breakfast for our anniversary/Birthday and got nothing. Breakfast should be included when you consider the shape of the hotel. The plus was the size of the room. The parking is horrid especially if you check in during the LUau time. The only thing I enjoyed was relaxing by the pool and hearing the waves against the rocks.

                  The open lobby area was very nice. We loved sitting at the grill watching the sunset.

                  The facility could use some updating but we loved our room that opened on 2 sides and the casual gibe. Don't need fancy dress here.

                  Rooms are already quite used and it is visible tnat hotel is of older age.

                  The service and friendliness of the staff was excellent. Particularly, Luis who advised awesome seating location for the Luau! Our room was ocean front, so the view was spectacular and the sound of the waves at night was relaxing. 3 Things - the overall cleanliness of the room was poor, the windows so dirty you couldn't see clearly out; the TV was broken and the shower head so calcified it was hardly serviceable. Once reported to the staff all these matters were rectified by the time we returned to our room (windows cleaned, new tv and shower head). Made our stay even more comfortable.

                  The private lagoon and beach was a nice perk (Ask about them! If you're not in the building next to them you will never know they exist!). The room was very spacious, we had 1 king bed with lots of space around it. Great location within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops but not so close that noise is a problem. Patio was very large. We had difficulties with the lock on our door and security/maintenance were super fast and friendly. Even got to see dolphins and manta rays from our balcony!

                  The bathroom was quite small compared to the size of the room and there was a fridge but no microwave. The breakfast buffet was nice but there were birds picking at the food on the buffet and bugs around some of the open containers (buffet was inside at the back of the restaurant, front of restaurant was open). We ate outside and there were birds on every uncleared table eating scraps. All in all, would recommend breakfast elsewhere for how much it cost. $10/Day for parking felt steep but the front desk kindly directed me to free but limited public on-street parking when I inquired.

                  We had a waterfront room with a great view, I dont think that was what we booked so were pleasantly surprised. Bed was large and comfy, rooms nicely designed. Good facilites and location is very central, with lots of places to eat surrounding it. Front desk staff very helpful. Room lovely and clean. Bar is really nice, great views and friendly staff. Parking was $10/day and there is plenty of space. Breakfast is ~$17, food was not bad but we found it better value to eat out. If you are arriving late please note no food is available outside of normal dining hours but there is a restaurant across the street that opens late.

                  We were woken at 630am one morning for 'housekeeping'. No plates/cutlery in room (just coffee cups and glasses). Hotel needs some tlc- a coat of paint on the roof of the dining room and some new towels/shower curtain (these were white and clean but a little thin/worn) would make the place look like new again.

Good facilites and location is very central, with lots of places to eat surrounding it. Front desk staff very helpful. Room lovely and clean. Bar is really nice, great views and friendly staff. Parking was $10/day and there is plenty of space. Breakfast is ~$17, food was not bad but we found it better value to eat out. If you are arriving late please note no food is available outside of normal dining hours but there is a restaurant across the street that opens late.

                  We were woken at 630am one morning for 'housekeeping'. No plates/cutlery in room (just coffee cups and glasses). Hotel needs some tlc- a coat of paint on the roof of the dining room and some new towels/shower curtain (these were white and clean but a little thin/worn) would make the place look like new again.

                  The location was great and I love the lagoon. Very clean rooms.

                  Front desk clerk who checked us in was not freindly. The rooms need an update. We had a room that faced the parking lot.
