Had an excellent experience. Staff were friendly and social, sun terrace was beautiful with sun all day long. Close enough to shops, beach and restaurant. Good price for what is on offer! Would stay again! The only downside was finding holes in the bedsheets otherwise an overall superb stay.

The location is the only thing good about this place. The rooms are filthy! The bathtub has not been properly cleaned in years! The beds are very hard, the pillows are flat, the sheets are not changed regularly. The walls and carpets are dirty. Don't even think of sitting on the room chairs without a towel. No wifi in rooms...

Great amenities. Lovely pool, spa pool and BBQ area but the BBQ could do with a flat plate as well as the grill. Nykky was most helpful at Check out time calling a shuttle and ringing through to confirm ongoing places for us.

I'm embarrassed for the Malihinis (Visitors) who come from all around the world to come visit the beautiful Hawaii Nei and have booked this hotel. Please avoid staying here, unless you don't care about customer experience. It doesn't exist here at the Hawaiian Monarch. It used to... When I was younger, this was a popular go to place to stay...

Nykky at the front desk got me a room without a prior reservation and no charge for early check in. Good service! I will be back. This hotel has come a long way back. The 7/11 next door is convenient for early coffee.
