We are 2 active 80yr olds. We have stayed at the Reef 6 times all in different units. We usually stay for 5 or 6 wks. This time 6 wks. This unit is close to the lower parking lot and very handy for taking items to the unit. The approximatry to the lot does get noisy at times though. The unit is clean and beautifully decorated. This shows pride of ownership.The owners are very good to deal with. Most folks come to Hawaii for 1 or 2 weeks & are busy all of the time. We have seen most there is to see & do, many times over. There IS so much that a person would want to see or do. At our ages, we love to play golf, relax, watch the surfers & sunsets & enjoy our 1 martini a day. (plastic glasses) We love to have that around 4:30 or 5 at a table by the pool. Then a dip in the pool & jacuzzi. A few times we were in the pool & or jacuzzi when it rained, hard. What a life that is. We love to sit on the lanai and enjoy the people. The lanai is close to the BBQ area and it does put you on display to everyone walking by. We found most folks nice and talked to a lot of them as they passed by. A local hawaiian group had a wonderful BBQ with many adults & children. We enjoyed watching them have fun. The man that was doing most of the cooking brought a large plate of their food to us for "pupus" We loved it & printed large letters on a board saying "Mahalo" and held it up for them to see. The walk to town is a short walk & we did it every morning. If you don't have a car, it is great as you can get to most everything by walking. There are so many great places to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
We played golf 12 times & enjoyed it every time. If you golf, be sure to buy the "Golf Card" before leaving home. It saves you.
This unit has most everything you will need to have fun. snorkel gear & etc. The king bed is very comfortable. We were concerned that there were no king pillows. The NEW shower is a real piece of work. Hazel now wants to put the same thing in our house. It will have to wait as we want to come back again. Everything you will need in the kitchen is there. We did have to buy most all of our condiments etc for cooking since NONE were left. We left PLENTY. We hooked into WIFI easily. That was a plus. Over all, a great stay. We would consider staying here again. Carol took care of us from the start & she made it Sooo easy. Don't be afraid to do it. Mahalo until next time.
Tourists without a Car,
