No Trouble in ParadiseOur four night stay here was effortless. Everything is close and comfortable. The location on the bay is serene and natural even though it is an active port. The golf courses are steps away from the hotel and the roads that run through them are great for jogging or walking. I liked the fact I could rent a stand up paddle board and head out into the bay without much concern for big surf. While the bay does have some waves, and folks do surf, there is a lake-like quality that makes SUP a delight. We rented a car through an online broker and were able to pick it up at the hotel which was convenient and cheap.
Our room was on the 11th floor and the higher floors have the better views over the palm tree grove that surrounds the pool. The pool is huge and there was never a shortage of places to lounge and relax. Service was attentive without a sales edge and we enjoyed food and drinks poolside. We also ate at the poolside restaurant one night and the food was nicely done.
It really is close to the airport but you don't have all that air traffic noise. Be sure to travel around the island and see the sites. No shortage of activities on land, water or air. Early mornings on the hotel terrace were a delight with free wifi to connect to the outside and a fresh cup of Hawaiian coffee. Great way to start the trouble-free day in paradise...
