Loved our stay here! It's not a super fancy resort with waterfalls and swim up bars, but it's comfortable and a great location right on the beach in Kapaa. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, especially Casie at the front desk. She gets 5 stars! The central Kapaa location is convenient to drive all around the island and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Although the unit is a bit on the small side (it is really a hotel room) compared to, say a one bedroom unit, is it well equipped with good quality items, well organized and cleverly stored. Towels and linens are good quality and there are lots of extra towels. The bed was very comfortable with an assortment of pillows to...

We were upgraded on arrival from our garden view to a beach view - what a beautiful location - as Aussies, we know a beautiful beach location! Rooms are strategically placed and the pick of the bunch are the ones facing the ocean. Inside, the rooms are small but well equipped and comfortable. Seating outside the rooms allows you to...

We spent a wonderful month on this beautiful island. We stayed at Kreller's Getaway in unit #345. A great view of the ocean and sunrises, steady sound of the surf, lanai was always a welcome respite from the heat of the day with cool breezes. The unit was exactly as advertised and is a great value. The location is perfect...

Although it's an older resort, it is well maintained and staff are helpful. It was an great location, close to the beach, restaurants, shopping mall and airport. It was a quiet location and very relaxing. Only concern was the pest control that happened one day during our stay...which was poorly communicated and door was left open. No odours or any...

Very nice base to explore the island, central to both directions. Lovely pool area, great bar/cafe next door. Not much "beach" as traditionally envisioned but great view of the water and loved listening to the waves every night.

Although we stayed in what they called a partial ocean view we could see the ocean from 3/4 of our balcony. The resort is quiet and the grounds well kept.

Very family friendly spread of multiple three story buildings surrounded by large lawns and landscaping. You can get some sand and ocean time then rinse off and hit the pool. Pool is pretty small and not great for real little kids but there's a poolside bar and three communal gas grills. The unit we stayed in was clean and pretty...
