    Week in comfort and options

    We booked our week's stay in a partial ocean view with a breakfast package. Our room ended up in the Ha'Upu building room 2315. We found this assignment convenient because we parked our rental just outside the building rather than the parking lot by the main entrance on the other side of the complex. This parking lot is a public lot as the beach is public. Parking is a bit scarce but we always managed to find a spot. We saved money on food by getting the breakfast package. We filled up before we left the resort to tour the island and only spent for dinner. So we averaged about $80 a day for food because we skipped lunch. We are not drinkers so we save there too. The room was spacious with a shower/tub combo, ample towels and there was plenty of counter space on the vanity for his/hers toiletries. The only thing I missed was the magnifying mirror for make-up. The king bed was comfortable. Linens were crisp white and the pillows were soft. The lanai was the width of the unit. Ours faced in but had a view of the crescent beach and mountain range beyond. Lots of table level outlets for charging cameras and cellphones. There was also a cable available to connect your laptop to the internet. There's also a room safe, a mini fridge and a coffee maker. The dining options were between a pool side restaurant (where they served breakfast), a cafe, Dukes and Portofino (italian), and a pizza place all on the premises. The good part is, if you walk a little further out, there are a number of other places you can dine with lower than resort dining prices. There is also a BBQ area where guests can grill their own food! The pool is the largest on the island. The lounge chairs were a bit uncomfortable as there were no cushioning - just mesh screening. There were plenty of chairs that lined the perimeter of the pool as well as the beach area. We had no difficulty finding a chair. Servers took orders around the pool area but there weren't that many so service was a bit slow. The resort had activities for guests to enjoy everyday from making leis, feeding the koi, beach and poolside games for the young and old.There was an art gallery, a gift and sundry shop, and resort desks to help you plan your excursions. The location of the resort was convenient. It was only a 10 minute drive from the airport and it is centrally located taking 1-2 hours to travel to the north shore or the west shore. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return if given the chance.

    You Don’t Get What You Pay For

    We had to leave the Marriott halfway through our stay because I could not access the internet for work. You can find better hotels with a similar price. We have left several messages to visit regarding our stay and no one has returned our calls.

    Grounds are nice, could use some updating and cleaning of the outside walkway surfaces. This is a large resort so you could walk quite a ways to get to your room (didn't matter to me, but should be noted for maybe older guests). I had an unwanted insect visitor in my room one night and when I called for housekeeping, the phone rang at least 15x before anyone picked up. I covered the cockroach with a glass until housekeeping came, but it was a nerve wracking experience and I didn't sleep well wondering if there were more!!! Housekeeping did come and remove the intruder. Understand that cockroaches are a part of Hawaiian life, but I don't want it in my room. Rooms are pleasant and good streaming options on TV. There was a lot of construction going on around the pool area, but the pool is one of their signature highlights. It was nice enough.

    Love staying here

    This is our second time staying here. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The beach, pool, Dukes Restaurant, Hōkūala golf course are all in walking distance. Started each day with a 3 mile walk around the property. The staff is friendly and helpful.
