Beautiful Location, but otherwise dissapointing
Hotel property was beautiful and it was a perfect location for a sunset wedding. Hotel did not seem to have the capacity for the number of guests and could use more chairs around the pool. Hotel is isolated, so food choices were limited to the property and the sister property. With the expectation of the Merida, the food was average. No microwave in the rooms, just a refrigerator, Disappointing to be charged $30 per day for parking, on top of the $37 resort fee. We were part of a group, and some of the guest received a discount to use on the property and we did not until was asked at the desk. Of course, we had already been there two days, and the discount was not retroactive. I will stay somewhere else when I got back to Hawaii
Great resort overlooking a amazing beach
Westin is a good place for Marriott rewards members. I stayed for 6 nights in April 2021. The rooms are specious. we checked in and got upgraded to a one bedroom suite. The suite had large living room and a kitchen with microwave and utencils. It also had a smaller bathroom with living room. You can walk out to the balcony from the living room. Bedroom is pretty large and the master bathroom has a large free standing tub (not sure if this is the correct description of the tub or not :)). According to my wife, although the tub looks nice but it's kinda difficult to get in and out (she used it once). Marriott lifetime status get you free continental breakfast which can be upgraded to make to other dishes (limited choice) if one wants. Staff at the hotel and specifically the breakfast restaurant is very friendly and polite. There are two pools. The adult pool is smaller and early risers have the best chance to score a seat. The lower level kind/family pool is bigger. However, in a non COVID full booking scenario, I think both the pools will be overcrowded, that's my estimation based on occupancy of the hotel. Multi level garage is attached to the hotel and car can be parked for a daily fee. It's quite a bit of trek from the garage to the room, so people with mobility issues, I think, should be dropped at the reception. However, if you do not mind a nice walk, then it's perfectly fine. The resort property is quite large, beach is 2 minutes from any room. Also right next to the beach there is great trail which we used quite frequently for long walks. Lastly, the hotel is very clean. all guests and staffs did follow all COVID protocols like masks, cleaning etc.
This property was very newly built. The lobby at the property was spectacular. Room was upgraded to a sea view suite. Complimentary full breakfast with highest quality was provided for Marriott titanium members. Full breakfast includes rice with Portugal sausages, omelet set, or Belgium waffle. However, notice now the policy was changed. They just gave Marriott elite members free continental breakfast with a charge $14 for upgrade. The continental breakfast including oatmeal, fruit cups, yogurt with fruits, and many kinds of pantries was also delicious . Two pools were fantastic. At night the pool was heated. Very comfortable. Don't miss Hapuna beach state park. From the cliff you can view the whole resort was surrounded by the sea and the mountains.
Homeowner guest kick out of the pool
We were guest of a homeowner at Mauna Kea Fairways south , the homeowner was not on island at the time . Because the pool attended could not find the homeowners name in their system they refused to let us have towels , as we have been coming for years to Mauna Kea and swimming in the Hapuna pool , we went in the pool anyway. While we were swimming we were approached by security and asked to provide homeowner name an address which we did , then they wanted to call the homeowner. We did not have our phones and did not know the number by heart, plus even if we did we would have declined to allow the call as the time difference would have meant the homeowner was asleep. They basically kicked us out . Very weird and embarrassing and we cannot believe in in this time of covid they have gotten this far from Aloha. NC
Concierge was very helpful!
Sachiko the concierge was very helpful in suggesting a wonderful hike to black sand beaches and in setting up our helicopter tour of the island. She spent the right amount of time with us to make sure we got the tour we were looking for. She also suggested other highlights to see within driving distance. Thanks Sachiko!
