          Is this a kid friendly hotel? It looks as though all the rooms are single rooms (no suites) and I'm wondering how it would be to stay here with a small very active toddler (18 mo old). Mahalo!

          I think it would be fine. The pool doesn't have a fence, so if you go out there you'd have to keep an eye on him. Otherwise, I think it would not be problematic. Nice grounds.
