Besides paying $500 + a night for your room- plan on paying extra for EVERYTHING!! Parking is $39 a day. The snorkeling in Rainbow Reef that they advertise on their commercials is an additional $25 for an adult. Children over the age of 9 are considered adults at the resort. I felt after paying the room rate, these things should be included.
Good location to Waimea Bay. Close to Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Teds Bakery, Haleiwa etc. It is a quite worn down backpackers place. Thin doors. Hard beds. No aircondition, fan or other commodities in room. No sink, no toilet in room. Fairly unclean.
The dorm I stayed in was didn't have a/c and I didnt expect it. Linens and a pillow were provided, happily unexpected. It is right on the main road but the road is SO QUIET at night and one of the German speaking women were outspoken enough to police the conversations from other cabins nearby to ensure quiet (everyone is different...get ready to experience folks who are different from yourself). Restauants, food trucks, grocery, beaches...all nearby and cool staff. Dude, love the no frills experience...encourages you to focus on the surf and the people...thanks! Ha! I always seemed to be looking for the property after dark and while I was unfamiliar with the area, I would pass it five times before successfully making the turn. I might suggest a solar light to illuminate the "Backpackers" and "Plantation Village" signs...else, no suggestions.
