Just close enough to everything. Great views!

Booked an Ocean Front Premiere, which included Premiere Club access and breakfast. Our 9th floor room was spacious. A dehumidifier in the room made the temperature in the room more comfortable. Room slippers and robes provided. Breakfast was continental with additional Japanese breakfast cuisine (boiled eggs, bacon, hash potato, miso, pickles, and onigiri). I did not experience the other club amenities because they close at 9pm and I was usually not back at the hotel until afterward.
The music from the hotel's Polynesian dinner show as well as the adjacent 'The Beach' dinner show were audible and both almost in view from the balcony. The ocean wave sounds drowned it out so I couldn't hear it in the room. The smaller gift and snack shop is open 24hrs, but prices are high. I did not get to visit any of the hotel restaurants and there is no room service.
The pool, open from 8am-8pm, stayed busy. Beach access is a few meters past the pool and had less patronage. I'm not sure why everyone was staying at the pool with such a beautiful beach.
There's a magic & dinner show for families bringing kids and the Polynesian BBQ dinner show for the adults.
All the local shopping and hotel shuttle buses come by regularly if you don't want to walk or drive yourself.
