We were not unhappy with our unit though. Its location and the quality of the pool and tennis courts more than made up for any shortcomings.

If you are like us and gone most of the day, this resort is fine. But if you want to relax close to the beach and avail of different amenities, you might want to look elsewhere. It is a 5-minute walk to the beach, but due to our small kids, we preferred to go to Lydgate State Park (that has an enclosed area for snorkeling - I highly recommend this! - aside from a nice playground). The playground across the street was not well maintained when we were there. Although I would say that the Kalapaki Beach seems a lot of fun for surfers!
The next time I go, I think I would like to spend less time with touristy stuff and find a resort that would be more beachfront (I liked Poipu Beach, Kapaa areas - although the water there might not be great for swimming). Thought that Princeville resorts were beautiful, but being up the cliffs from the beach doesn't do much for me (maybe if I golfed more).

The shopping across the street provides a nice selection of boutique-type shops, souvenir shops, art studios, and restaurants. We were able to pick up a couple of lovely pieces of specialty art for our walls at home. We also were able to nab some really REALLY comfy thong sandals (slippas). We toured the Marriott grounds that centered the bay/harbor.
The Marriott had a bar - Duke’s - that had a nice waterfall, with seating all around the waterfall and Koi pond. Next to the Marriott was a country club and tennis club with a full golf course. They had beautiful grounds, which we wondered through. Some of the vacation homes along the cliffs had wonderful views of the harbor.
Again, the best thing about staying at Banyan Harbor was its location and proximity to Lihue and neighboring towns.
