Excellent but pricey

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

The biggest issue with the Kea Lani is the price. If you're ready to spend several hundred USD per night, please read on, otherwise, safe money and time.

Your welcome at the Kea Lani does of course come with the trimmings:
Welcome drink while you check in as well as a Lei. The attitude at check in has varied over several stays from outright friendly and warm to rather short and business like.

Most suites have the same generous layout. The main price difference lies in the view. You can choose between Parking Lot view (however this is called officially), Garden View (the side towards the ocean, but you don't see it :-( and ocean view.
I'd say it's worth the extra money to select ocean view - or I'd rather say it's not worth going to the Kea Lani and end up seeing just greenery.

Suites are decorated mostly in white and this goes well with the fresh ocean breezes and the famous Hawaiian climate.
There's a complete entertainment center with a large TV in the Living Room and another TV in the Bedroom. A small Kitchenette consists of a refrigerator, microwave and a sink. Not really a Kitchen, but fine for mixing drinks for sunset.

The garden is well kept and spacious. We never had a problem finding an empty chair.
Polo Beach is "small but great". Small in size, but great for swimming. Both Pools are nice and pleasant too.

Restaurants are pricey and the selection somewhat limited. Food quality was good, but not outstanding.

On the annoying side, there's a charge for more or less everything you do at the Kea Lani.
Certainly the work of a very clever analyst who smartly found out that there was some extra money to be milked from the tourists.

The result is that I can't really recommend the Kea Lani anymore.
The room rates are rather astronomical now, but if this still doesn't buy you lunch, then it's just too much.

Unique Quality: Great suites with space to spare.
