    Just the whole ambiance. It's like an upscale Polynesian. I love the little frogs on the walkway in. I love the elephants in the lobby. The rooms are very nice. I've had nothing but impeccable service from everyone there. I love the little water taxi.

    Portofino was nice too but our water taxi driver couldn't park the boat to save his life. I swear that has colored the whole experience for me

    Hi there Nicki! I didnt know you stayed at the HRH. Unfortunately for us we were there during those four awful days of rain so that didnt help. I did find the rooms totally unexciting - yes, bland would be a good word.Chipped furniture seems to be a problem then! RPR on the other hand is just luxurious. It has a lovely Polynesian feel to it and is peaceful and quiet. The Islands dining room is a wonderful venue for a snack or buffet breakfast. I love the place!

    Do you have AA (AAA in the US)? remember you can get good deals using them. You have to call them directly to get it though.

    That's another thing we didn't like about HRH the food choices, ended up just having coffee and pastries for breakfast.
    Think we'll be trying RPR next time, I've heard so many good reports on it :)

    We've only had breakfast at the Islands but it was quite nice. In busier times, they have a buffet. And you can also order from the menu.
