Wonderful hotel, great pools and restaurants.
We booked this with friends that selected the resort. We were very impressed with the room (although we had to ask 3 times for an extra bed), the layout, and decor. It certainly was an impressive setting with fantastic pools, all the amenities you could desire, and the staff were delightful (apart from a couple of the concierge who didn't seem overly happy to be helping us out!).
The only negative was the lack of communication regarding the booking of restaurants and the Christmas Day buffet. We arrived Dec 25th and none of the staff mentioned that we should book the Christmas Eve/Day restaurants in advance which meant by the time we got around to it (2 days before), there was absolutely nothing available in the resort and we ended up leaving the resort, walking to Poipu, and eating at a beachside diner. The food was great, and the walk was only 25 minutes but the lack of communication regarding the restaurant arrangements was rather galling considering the cost of the vacation. I know...first world problems!!
