Concierge.com's insider take:

Opened in 2006, this 190-room condo resort on the beach in Kapaa, a budget-friendly local's town on the east coast with a slightly bohemian vibe, is remarkable. There are studios and one-bedrooms available here, but for the same price as a standard hotel room in Poipu you get a two-bedroom, three-bath unit with trendy Indonesian decor, a washer-dryer, and a kitchen fitted with a Sub-Zero fridge and a Wolf convection oven. (A supermarket is within walking distance.) The wind makes the ocean here a good spot for kite surfing, but the water is too rough for swimming: The resort makes up for that with a huge, heated, therapeutic soft-water river pool (the water flows from an upper to a lower level and is pumped back up), with flumed water slides and three sand-bottomed whirlpool spas. All of this adds up to a surprisingly sophisticated blend of comfort and luxury that appeals to families and honeymooners alike (although lovers may want to request the oceanfront units away from the pool for more privacy).
