Aloha Our bikes are beach cruisers they are just single speed bikes meant to ride around the local area and take in all the area has to offer. Mahalo

What amenities do you offer? Please be specific as I find this very important when I travel with my family and like to keep the children occupied? Do you offer Yoga every day or just how often? Is there an amenities fee? If so, how much is it per night and what do “we” get for it? Are your bikes single speed Crusiers or bikes with gears to make travelling easier and more enjoyable for people of varied ages and abilities? Do you have BBQS? I always enjoy getting to know other guests in the evening around the BBQ and sharing ideas! Being able to BBQ a nice steak at the end of the day is always a highlight of any vacation for us! What does the second pool look like? Please post a picture of the second pool! Is it safe to swim at the beach in front of the hotel or do you need to be a really good swimmer? Is it a smooth sandy beach? Do you have a Lifeguard? Will my children be safe in the pool or do they need to be attended at all times? How many Handicapped parking stalls do you have? Do your balconies offer any privacy or sound abatement from adjacent rooms? If anyone’s has stayed here and can answer these questions or post pictures, please do? I am particularly interested in seeing the second pool - thanks! What time does the music from your restaurant stop playing at night? If I have a room near the restaurant will it be noisy at night? Do you have elevators to accommodate elderly people or persons with disabilities? Is smoking permitted on site? I hope not! Will someone please post a picture of what the bathrooms look like? Is this a destination hotel where a family might like to spend a couple of weeks or is it more of a stopover hotel better suited to staying a few nights? The pictures look lovely but there aren’t enough of them. The location seems like it should be great!

There were two handicapped parking stalls behind the building close to the road. There were no elevators. The beach has coral and rocks with the sand.

Aloha, The beach right in front of the hotel has very strong tides at times, however if you walk along the beach a bit you will be able to find some safer places to swim.
