Pono Kai is an older property that is very well maintained and an excellent bang for your dollar when it comes to traveling with family to Hawaii. My husband is European and I’ve traveled the world over with him in our 26 years together. we LOVED the property! We loved the mature landscape, the cleanliness of our entire condo (A207 - oceanfront), the friendliness of the staff, and the other guests. I was awake and on our balcony every morning by 5:30 am for the spectacular sunrises, to see the locals and tourist out on the walking path getting their morning exercise in - it was fabulous. We loved the chickens and cats - - this property takes care of their cats and has them spayed and neutered and feeds them daily. They are not ferial cats. If you want on onsite spa, shopping, restaurants, and a true 5-Star experience go north to the St. Regis, you want a very nice place to stay for a great price go to Pono Kai. Mahalo – Andrea A.
