Stayed here for 5 days. Very nice, central location to drive all over island.

Buy auto fuels at Costo if you have a card, about $0.50 per gallon cheaper

Hotel located right across from Beach and a two shopping "malls". Bars, beach, restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. You don't even need a car! Very comfortable suite; I stayed in a two bedroom two bath which also had a pull out couch. Staff are very friendly and helpful. All areas very clean! I liked the fact that they have designated smoking areas.

We stayed at a "1st" floor unit with a little staircase to go a few steps up.
The place is located in a very convenient area, which alone was a big plus for us.
The room was clean and well equipped.
So surprised that bathrooms were both spacious, both had a bathtub and the sink counter was very wide. Plenty of bath towels.
Note:Maybe traveler with someone needing a ground floor should contact the front desk for a "no stairs 1st floor".
The Wi-fi connection wasn't working, so had to call Oceanic. Solved the problem right away.
Overall, we liked the property.

Given that, a few things I want to mention are...
1. The refrigerator: Inside the freezer was frost buildup. Needs to be checked.
2. Kitchen: No chopsticks!? C'mon, we're in Hawai'i ;-)
3. Pool: I enjoyed just a few minutes of my morning swim there. Maybe it's better to have the pool maintenance crew to pick up leaves and such with a skimmer net like once in two days..?
4. Noise-1: Footstep noise from the unit above. Wasn't that bad but sometimes noisy...
Noise-2: There were some people from Europe in the neighbor units staying in separate units and gals from another unit would come over to visit ones in our building and were chatting at the staircase which was right below our master bedroom for 1-1.5 hours in the middle of the night every night. Because of this, one of us were woken up at like 1 or 2 AM.
Noise-3: Saw a very obnoxiously loud Harley-type motorcycle coming into the property to pick up a lady from a building right in front of our bedroom at not even 8AM(7:40-ish), which of course woke us (and probably everyone else in the condo) up on a Sunday morning. I don't know if this was regular there, but if it is, the management should at least talk to the operator of the motorcycle to not drive into the complex before 8AM...

After all, the stay itself was not bad at all for the price.

What I can say? We booked a 1 bedroom condo with car hire for $199 USD including tax and got a two bedroom two level condo with 3 patios (lanai's), full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, full sized oven and stove, plus everything you need to cook and eat like a king.

Downstairs there was the kitchen with separate lounge/dining room, toilet, cable TV, air con and fans. Upstairs there's two bedroom's separated by a bathroom with bathtub/shower and a full sized top loader washer and dryer. The main bedroom had air con and fans plus cable TV, the second bedroom had fans. The second level does get a little hot in the late afternoon.

We were only here for three nights and but is worth a week or more. It's 5 minutes from the airport, Walmart and safeway, plus duke's kauai. There's plenty to eat within a short walk of the resort if you don't want to cook and the cruise terminal is a short walk which offers extra discounts when they are in town.

Plenty of options to travel from the resort, it's a good idea to take the car hire deal they offer when booking direct with them online so you can make the most of the island as well as the accommodation.

Kiki is great to book local tours with and she can get a reasonable discounts on some great options like helicopter tours to the best luau experience in Kauai. She's cheeky too We had a great time here and would definitely come back. We stayed in block L which gave us great access to the pool and tennis courts. The smoking area has a view to die for.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in L and K blocks for the better views

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Rooms were very clean and well appointed, had everything we needed, including a kettle....bliss! Staff were very courteous and helpful. We had undercover parking which was a bonus when we had to pack up during a large downpour! Large shopping centre 5 minutes away (including Costco, Safeway, Macys), handy for stocking up, but there were plenty of other food options across the road. The beach was an easy 5 minute walk away, ten minutes drive to the airport.
