Fodor's Review

This is a great option if you're on a budget—the location is central; the bar, lounge, pool, and restaurant are right on the water; and the rooms feature contemporary Hawaiian decor with Polynesian accents. The hotel is adjacent to numerous shops and restaurants in the heart of Kailua Village. A luau with Polynesian entertainment (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday) is fun and quite popular, and the Lotus Center spa offers massage, facials, and chiropractic, plus

there's a fitness room on-site. Don the Beachcomber and Don's Mai Tai Bar (check out the restaurant's classic South Pacific architecture and authentic tiki decor) unveil incredible views of Kailua Bay.

"What a View"

My sister and I spent 10 amazing day's. It couldn't have been any nicer. Our room was a corner king. Clean! We didn't stay in our room much. My sister did a lot of dry land tours. I spent most of my days being adventuress in the ocean. Never a dull moment !!! The food and booze was great.. I didn't want to leave.
