Generous room designations: Many “garden view” rooms have ocean views, and many “ocean view” rooms would count as “oceanfront” elsewhere. The rooms themselves seem a little sterile following a major renovation completed in 2016. They’re light, sleek and contemporary, but lack a Hawaiian feel. Overall, though, the resort evokes a relaxed feeling. More upscale than what you’d normally expect from the Marriott brand.
They actively seek the family market (with a seasonal children’s program at $125, plus lunch costs) and the group market (with many conference facilities). There is also a family game room and cinema with beanbag chairs. Mandara Spa is on site. Cabanas at the pools rent for $350 by the Adventure pool and $400 by the Infinity pool per day, which includes a $50 food and beverage credit and allows you to stay until 7 p.m. to watch the sunset. Covered casabellas by the ocean are $150.
Rooms (437 sq. ft.) are listed at $729–$979, suites (463-2,123 sq. ft.) are $1,029–$2,989. Lots of packages available, so it’s doubtful you’ll pay anywhere close to this rate.
