CRH - Pono Kai Resort, Kapaa
NO AIR CONDITIONING ! It was very hot
The unit was updated with granite countertops, new bathroom & kitchen fixtures BUT it had no A/C. There was a thermostat in the master BR & in never got below 85F even at night. I called the local rental co. & agent was helpful but there was no remaining unit with A/C at the resort. I understand that ceiling fans were listed in the amenities but I erroneously assumed that was in addition to A/C. The comfort was far less than what I've come to expect from I would actually recommend that you not list this unit unless a/c is added. I will return to this resort but through an owner based rental.

WARNING - None of these units have air.
We arrived and found a nice size 2 bedroom condo just as expected. The problem was that the rooms were warm. When I went to adjust the air conditioner temperature, I found that the rooms were not air conditioned. There were other units at Pono Kai. I called immediately to get moved to the air conditioned unit we expected, only to find the it was after the phones were on night service. We stayed in the unit overnight. The service didn't call us back at 8am as promised. When we called them, they stated that they didn't manage any air conditioned units. On our own, we found another facility that was wonderful at the same price. The CRH management did refund all but the one night with the cleaning fee rather than the policy 50% penalty. We still felt tricked in to staying there. Let me state that the Pono Kai Resort was nice and the staff at the resort were as great, but the booking was through a separate management service. I would not go back through the CRH Pono Kai. WARNING - None of their units have air conditioning.

Awesome stay
I love this resort! It's perfectly located, close to stores, restaurants and grocery stores. This is the 5th time we've stayed here and it's usually for about 15 days.

Pono Kai Resort , great for families.
This was a lovely relaxed holiday in a beautiful setting. We were fortunate enough to have a ground floor, ocean frontage apartment, which was a bonus. Well maintained site. Easy walking distance to town for shops and restaurants.
