My husband and I stayed in OPOP with our 3 year old son in May 2013. It truly was paradise! The location was ideal for our low-key getaway. After spending a week in Waikiki, we were ready for less touristy, busy city environment and more quiet beaches and local digs. Punulu'u was a great location.
This listing was very accurate and the property was great. It was clean and well-maintained for the age of the development, and the only thing I wish we could change was the location of the trash bins. The mess from that location and the occasional smell if people left the doors open was a minor nuisance, but security was pretty quick to close down the trash bins.
The on-site manager was a great resource for us. We took our time touring the island on our way over and he was very flexible with our arrival time. He gave us an efficient walk through and was available for our very early morning departure with no issue.
We enjoyed walking down the highway to the local market and getting ice creams. We toured the Polynesian Cultural Center that is not too far away, and headed down to Kailua a few times. The location was truly ideal.
I've recommended this property to several friends and will definitely continue to do so in the future.
