Nice relaxing place to stay. We had partial ocean view which was very nice. We asked for a microwave upon checking in and it was in the room by the time we arrived. Ocean Tower is farthest from lobby...can take as much as 15 minutes to travel between the two. Not enough ice machines on the property. Beautiful grounds.

it is huge, so there is some walking involved, but we stayed in the Makai Tower which was closest to the parking lot. It also is not that far of a walk to the breakfast. There is also a coffee shop main floor outside the elevator of the Makai Tower. We stayed in room 2311 and had a great view of the dolphins. I could sit and watch them all day!… Read more

There is also a coffee shop main floor outside the elevator of the Makai Tower. We stayed in room 2311 and had a great view of the dolphins. I could sit and watch them all day! It was a beautiful view. The breakfast was the best I have ever experienced and highly recommend getting the package that has breakfast for 2 included. There is a waffle bar, omelette bar, hot tables with french toast or pancakes, corned beef hash, bisquits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, a pastry table, and a whole room with fabulous fresh fruits, salad bar, soups and more. You are sat at a table so there is never a scramble to find a table and hold it before it fills up. The pool is very nice. Makai Tower has a special area to sit but it isn't very big and half of it are the reserved seats you have to pay for to have an umbrella and safe by your chairs. Ordered a pizza from room service one night. Was good, Expensive and small but was good. Only complaint is the parking is 30 dollars a day, add that to the resort fee which is 45.00 a day and that is a pretty healthy addition to the cost. Read less

Huge property with a tram to link you to other locations on property-for convenience not speed. Stayed in Ocean Tower and had a lovely view of ocean. I understand construction happening on northeast side of tower so avoid rooms over there. Food prices fairly high so we ate off property. Thank God for the Adult pool-this resort is kid oriented!… Read more

Not a fan of all the eastern statuary and decor. Not sure why “Makai” guests get access to hidden hot tubs in that pool area, as signage indicates. Guest services said we were free to use those hot tubs. We are more of laid back travelers looking for nice accommodations. We would not stay here again-takes to long to come and go from parking lot.

Their pools were amazing with slides and waterfalls. The kid pool had sand in it and my kids loved it. The lagoon was awesome and it allowed sea life to come in from the ocean. My kids enjoyed seeing the sea turtles.
