8/10 Very good

Enjoyed our stay!
We stayed for 6 nights. Our room was upgraded and very nice. Only thing we wished we had in the room was a small microwave. The balcony had an ocean view as promised. The property is quite large so there’s a lot of walking involved. We were ok with that. Overall we did enjoy our stay but a car is a must if you stay at this location. They only had the one restaurant at the resort called Kukui’s. The food was decent but the prices were outrageous. We paid $75 for dinner for two and next morning breakfast was $60. It can add up quickly. There are a few restaurants further down the beach. We went to Dukes a few times and also Portofinos. There is a few food trucks across the street and a small shopping center near by for more options. Overall it was a great vacation and wound stay here again but would get a car for our entire stay in lieu of an ocean view room. Also, there are cruise ships that dock nearby twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, It makes this area quite busy but they aren’t allowed on the property which is good. I would recommend going around the island on those days.
