The Koa Kea offers a beautiful property and peaceful open atmosphere. Despite it being “spring break” week, the resort was filled with mostly adults and there was always a nice spot open by the pool. The oceanfront suites have the best patio view imaginable and the room was well

Greeted with leis upon our arrival, we felt pampered as soon as we set foot inside! The staff was generous and warm and the guests were as friendly! We treated ourselves to an oceanside cabana massage and were not disappointed. The best massage of our lives! The food at Red Salt

There is no privacy on the first floors if you have your doors open. But you have grass access and essentially more room. There is also less ocean view from the first floor level. It is trade off. I would stay on the first floor if I had kids. Otherwise upstairs. I hope this helps.
