We had breakfast here (we’re staying in one of the cabins), and my husband said it reminds him of the days from the Navy Mess Hall: standard fare and large portions (“filling yet unsatisfied”). Order at the center counter and they’ll yell out your order...More

I, being a totally disabled war veteran, qualify to stay at this camp. I had family visiting and I called, Mona answered, and I asked if I can get the veteran's rate for my entire family--with three cottages. Oh, yes, so I booked and paid....More

The food was mediocre, but what really sold me was the service. Everyone was friendly and the bartender, Keanu, at the Lava Lounge was great. This was our first stop during our big Hawaiian vacation and I would say it was very worth going.
