In the morning, we had a continental breakfast at the beautifully designed clubhouse, and that was followed by talks from the vendors of optional outings. The resort offers many no- or low-cost things to participate in. We enjoyed the bingo night, the potluck dinner night, the free music, dancing, and mai tai nights, the free hula shows, and inexpensive crafts with coconut palm fronds. You can use the Internet free at the Pahio Sheerwater Resort, and all the activities at all four neighboring resorts in this Pahio group are included. That really expands your fun! We had a lower two-bedroom unit. It had four sets of sliding doors, each with its own patio, a Jenn Air range, and a separate bar with stools. They provided a set of four beach towels and straw mats and a foam cooler for the beach or pool area. Near the outdoor pool/waterfall is a nice big hot tub with a sand floor and its own waterfall. Very good maid service and a most accommodating staff.

The room was well stocked with more than the basics. The food market (quite pricey) is in Princeville and offers a discount to Pahio guests. The concierge was friendly and very helpful when planning activities. We took her suggestions and took in a luau and the sunset cruise around the NaPali coast (discounts if booking through her were helpful). They have a morning breakfast get-together where they invite various island tours to give a short presentation. We didn't use the golf course, but it looked lovely. They offer 15 minutes of free Internet service, nice to check your email on a daily basis.
You really need a car for this resort, as it's about 30 miles from Lahui airport. Check in is at the airport; we had our keys and directions before we picked up the car. This is certainly the prettiest island, and we took full advantage of all it had to offer. Check with RCI regarding the points required, as it was more than posted in the book. They have an RCI person on-site.

This time the second bedroom was equipped with twin beds and we didn't expect that since the first time we had two master bedrooms. We found the registration at the airport just great and once we were settled in went to the front desk to have all our questions answered in a friendly and quick way. When we arrived we found a lot of ants in the kitchen, and with just a phone call they arrived immediately to take care of the situation. The kitchen is very well equipped. The only thing we were lacking was a pizza pan which was delivered to our door within five minutes after our phone call to the front desk.
Although the weather was a disappointment the week we were there, we found plenty of places and things to do. The staff were very helpful in scheduling us with activities, and their poo-poo party is fantastic! A great way to meet people and good entertainment.
The resort grounds, the pool area with its natural setting, and the clubhouse (activities center) are beautiful. The Jacuzzi is private and romantic under the stars!
The entire Princeville area and the North shore are among the most beautiful areas I've ever seen. This is the actual paradise when thinking about Hawaii! Shopping was convenient, just about three minutes away in Princeville. We found that groceries were more expensive in Princeville, so many times we shopped at other locations on our way home.
