Clean but dated, good for a night or two
Posted Jun 6, 2012 on Hotels
The staff was great, and very accommodating...unfortunately, they don't work in a top notch resort. The Pono Kai was very clean, but a little dated. You can tell the staff takes a lot of pride in their resort, and they do the best they can with what they have. However, the great staff doesn't help the fact that this resort barely has a beach...and you'd be afraid to swim in their rough waters even if it did. You can walk down about 1/2 mile to the public park/beach, where there IS some sand to lay on and the waters are more tame, but that's not always convenient to run back and forth to your room. All in all, this is a good, clean place for a night or two, but it's not on par with a Marriott, Sheraton or Westin. So don't expect too much, and you'll be okay with it.
