Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time on the island. It was a pleasure to stay at the Hilton Resort, the service was top-notch all around (the friendly clerks, concierge, wait staff, etc.). We were able to explore the island in its entirety in just 6 days with never a dull moment. Thank you, Jutikadevi, and expect us back soon!

More than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

The resort was absolutely beautiful and more than we expected from the listing online. The first evening we arrived, we were treated to complimentary mai tais and a hula show near the pool. The resort also offered various classes and workshops, including complimentary yoga, sunrise activities, kids activities and complimentary scuba/snorkel activities in the pool. The facilities were beautiful, including the pool area, hot tub, landscaping, lobby, and more.

There was a great little souvenir gift shop that also had a full espresso bar/coffee shop, which took care of my morning caffeine fix. The ocean is a very short distance away, which made mornings spectacular.

Absolutely wonderful location and resort. The room was cozy, had two mini fridges, large and beautiful bathroom, plenty of outlets, towels, beauty products and more. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

My granddaughter and I stayed at the resort in March of 2015. It was the very best vacation ever! I want to come back and stay longer next time. 2 weeks wasn't enough of this beautiful place. We rented a car for a few days to check out other parts of the island. Easy to get around with very friendly locals. The beaches are unbelievably clean and beautiful. I can't wait to visit again!

This is a 4 to 5 star hotel.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful hotel. Nice pool. There are two twin beds. This room was actually not cleaned upon arrival. We were placed in another room and moved into the correct room the following day. This was a minor inconvenience. The owner of the room more than made up for this by generously stocking the fridge with a large assortment of ice tea, bottled water, chocolates, cookies. We were impressed. We would stay with this vrbo again. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and reasonable. We received $5 off coupons upon check in. Weight room was good for a hotel. Dumb bells up to 55lbs, elliptical, stair climbers, treadmills, and some other equipment.

Owner's Response: Kelly, Thank you for your review. Very sorry about the delay in getting you to the right room. Recently I had my long term cleaners move back to Oregon, and did not have the right replacements initially, I have since replaced this cleaner with new personnel, to ensure that These kinds of things never happen again. I made sure to tell them, to keep the room as immaculate as possible, and that rooms needs to be cleaned by 3pm, on every checkout. Thank you very much for your patience, during your stay. Appreciate it very much.

lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Resort very nice. Good amenities. Unit lacked some promised items. Owner did not respond until it was time for us to leave. Sounds like change of housekeeping crew as the problem. Sleeps five but very crowded for more than 2 or 3 people. If housekeeping resolved very good price for a couple or family with 1 or 2 young children.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, I apologize very much for the mix up with not having tea and addiitonal free snacks during your stay. I responded immediately as soon as I saw your email. I asked the new cleaners, taking care of the room to ensure that every guests will have enough free snacks in the room. The new cleaners did not know about this, it was not intended on our part in anyway to portray a different picuture than what you experienced. So sorry about not having tea and additional snacks available for your stay.

Lihue resort

  • 2 of 5

The resort is very nice, clean and staff friendly. Our room was not an oceanfront though. In fact it overlooked a rooftop and parking lot. The room was average. Nice but not really like a privately owned condo. We would stay again but only in one of the resort rooms.

Owner's Response: Well, I am glad you wrote this, so that I can exactly let other's viewing your review exactly how different my home is for others who also want to make it their home. First and foremost, I have always wanted to make sure that Paradise is affordable for everyone, and want to make sure, that I maximize everything possible for guests who choose to stay in my home and make it their home to. The room does have beautiful mountain views as well as beautifull views of the palm tree and it is one of the most private rooms, as it is not easy for others to look into the room from the outside. There are no parking lot views from the room. Hotel is oceanfront, and as soon as you open the door with a few steps, the magnificent ocean views are there, room While the hotel rents it out for $145++ taxes, my rental rates are from $91- $99!! I offer all these amenities in my room that no other hotel room at the resort offers: 1. Professional Cleaning Crew, who care for the room to keep it immaculate and clean. 2. Free wifi, with limited data usage. 2. 400- 500 thread designer brand bedding, towels. 3. Free Chocolates, Snacks, Cookies, Free Bottled Water 4. Big Size Refrigerator and Freezer 5. Microwave 6. Hot Water Boiler 7. Spa Kit And you are just steps and minutes away from the ocean, and all the fun in the oceanfront Resort~
