Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
Spread over three ship-shaped towers, this breezy, 1970s Polynesian fantasy has a tropical theme that lets you know you're in Hawaii.
DK Eyewitness
Perched oceanfront on Kailua Bay, there are the usual resort amenities to enjoy, such as a multi-level swimming pool and a saltwater lagoon.
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.
