I tend to take stellar reviews with a grain of salt. I had been given the name of Surfjack by colleagues who had stayed there a couple months before, and after reading all the reviews I booked two nights starting a 10 day Hawaii vacation. To put it mildly, this hotel is amazing! From the moment I walked in after an 11 hour flight having the front desk great me an an Aloha spirit and having a cocktail at Mahina & Sons, it was such good energy. The room (a 1 bedroom) was perfect, great size, loved the bathroom amenities and the entire vibe of the room was peaceful and modern. Used their complimentary bikes to explore the neighborhood, lounged by the pool with a cocktail and had a lovely dinner at Mahina's. The entire staff that I interacted with, from bell hop to front desk, to restaurant and housekeeping all greeted me with a smile and an positivity that is very rarely seen in this day and age. If you have a chance, stay here. You won't regret it. Loved the infused lime or orange water in the lobby as well.
