Very nice. This place had its own lagoon and Luau garden. A small Hawaiian village was behind this resort that gave a historic and "back-in-time" feeling. The pool and bar were very clean. The jacuuzzi was wonderful. The historic tour is a must.

Reminds one of a truck stop with a local Hawaiian atmosphere. Good place to meet the locals and eat inexpensive good food. The building is rather old with louvered windows. This place always seemed packed.

This was an all you can eat Hawaiian Buffet. The setting of Tiki torches and tropical fruit drinks gave off an elegant atmosphere. We had one tropical drink called the backscratcher and it came in a huge stylish glass with, you guessed it a wooden back scratcher! How cute! The buffet was always fresh and the Lau Lau is very unique. Try Tropics!
