Great resort with everything you need
We had an ocean view room in the Kalia tower. The views were very nice! We liked the fact there were many pools so you could mix it up a little. The beach was close to the super pool (1-2 minute walk). There were fireworks on Friday night. Many restaurants and shops about it the resort. Lunch options were limited though the ABC store in the resort had nice salad options for a reasonable price. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The TV included Foxtel with some channels. The toiletries were nice too - they even sold the large versions at the boutique store. The gardens were beautifully landscaped with rocks, waterfalls and live animals (ducks, mccaws, turtles, fish). We paid a US$35 daily resort fee which covered the use of the gym, renting DVDs with the latest releases and other activities like yoga, lei making and hula lessons. Location was good but a 15 min walk to the main shopping strip or a 10-15min walk to Ala Moana shopping centre (one of the largest). TheBus was the transport option we used to get around when we didn't feel like walking (cost US$5 adult day pass). Overall I would highly recommend this resort to families.
