This renovated beachfront bargain features small but functional rooms with slightly quirky, IKEA-style furnishings (curvy mirrors, square lamps), bright blue geometric-patterned rugs, and very compact bathrooms. No need to hole up in your room, though: The oceanview pool is inviting, while the oceanfront Lava Lava Beach Club serves three meals daily, with a full bar, indoor/outdoor seating, and nightly live entertainment. Swimming isn’t safe here, but children can splash in the rock-walled ocean pool in front of Lae Nani next door, and the Lydgate Beach ponds are just a short drive away. Yoga classes take place on the oceanfront lawn three mornings a week. Note: Request a second-floor room for more privacy (if you can carry your own bags), and a room not adjacent to the parking lot.
