Update: This hotel opened November 2022. We will be back to review it shortly. Below is previous review.
Overall, this place feels busy and loud most of the time. The rooms are decorated with deep reds and dark chocolates—sort of a lava color scheme. Tiny lanais on the Diamond Head side are standing room only. They have a category called “select,” which are rooms with the best ocean-facing views. We’re not sure if they’re worth the extra money (nearly $80), since many rooms still enjoy an ocean view in other categories. Some connecting rooms available. Beach chairs available. If you got a good deal, you’re right across from the beach. Rooms (264–324 sq. ft.) are $389–$549. Suites (430–837 sq. ft.) are $559–$829. Few pay the rack rates.
