There wasn't much interaction with the staff while we were there, and all I heard was how wonderful they were in other reviews. The only thing that stands out about the staff was when they found out we were on our honeymoon they said they would send up wine or something and it never came but no big deal. The room was really nice and clean. The pool area was nice and the food choices at the hotel were a little pricey, but that was to be expected so just make sure you have coupons-especially for the shorebird or you pay $30 for breakfast buffet and with the coupon it was $21. (will never do another trip that isn't all inclusive) You are walking distance to a lot of other places to eat so you are not stuck there. It is a super busy place so I wouldn't rent a car because you walk and if you do an excursion they pick you up so don't waste the money. The beaches were, well, sad! I am a beach person and I was very dissapointed in the beaches. There was some construction going on Wikkiki beach so walking down to that area was out of the question and the beach in front of the Outrigger would not even be called a beach in my book. Wear water shoes if you plan on getting in the water because the rocks will cut you-just ask my husband!! It is a beautiful place, make sure to take a tour of the island so you don't miss out on the beauty of the place. You will enjoy it, just don't get your heart set on white beaches!
