My in-laws are in Hawaii Kai. They are happy there. The staff members are very nice. My father-in-law loves it. He loves the food. In fact, he gained all his weight back from the nursing facility he was stuck at. Even though he has Alzheimer's, he is happy there. They have a van that takes them all over the place, and he loves to be in the van. He doesn't care where they go; he just loves driving around. My mother-in-law has a nurse's aide that comes in to help him bathe. They're pretty independent. My in-laws go to their doctors' appointments together. They schedule it with the van. The only days they can't make doctors' appointments is on Wednesdays because that's the day the van gets tuned up.

I visited Hawaii Kai, and I liked it. It was excellent, well-maintained, and attractive. They showed me a 1-bedroom. It has enough room, was attractive, and well-maintained. They handed me an activity chart, they have transportation to medical appointments, shopping, and they have card games. They were in the midst of construction in the lobby.

Hawaii Kai is as good as it can be. They have one apartment that has the best view that's wonderful. The marketing director was wonderful, very friendly, and helpful. They provide a change of linens every Friday and clean once a week, too. We ate lunch there, and the food was great. The wait staff was very professional and very good.

My husband and I went to Hawaii Kai and it was nice. I'm trying to make arrangements so that my mother-in-law can go and see what her reaction is. The person that assisted me was very nice and very helpful. She took us all around to different places. They had a studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments. They had activities for the residents and most of these people were independent. The dining area was very nice. When I went to see the place, they had an activity going on. They had someone explaining how to pack up if you wanted to move, and they would assist in all the packing. We had food with this particular group, and it was very good. Everything was good.

My mother moved into Hawaii Kai last June. It was our first choice. I knew about this place from a long time ago and it's great. However, they promised something, and when it was time to do it, they didn't do it. Every week, I had to go over there to remind them. The problem got resolved though, so it is all good now. Everything was great except that little wrinkle that we had to go through. I like the openness of the community when you enter the place; it's really pretty, it's clean, huge, and open. They have fountains, and the dining room is very nice. They serve adequate, good food. There are a wide variety of activities that residents can partake in, from games to puzzles and classes, and there's a workout room too. It's very diverse.

We had a very good experience at Hawaii Kai, and we all liked it. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Every question that we asked, they had an answer for us. We were very satisfied. We looked at a clean one-bedroom. We were very pleased. They had a bingo session going on at that time.

My friend has a very good comfy two-bedroom in Hawaii Kai. The food and the dining room are good. Everybody talks to one another. They go on outings and take them out shopping.

I visited Hawaii Kai and thought it was very nice. It did not have availability, and I thought it was a little too big for our friend. However, the apartments were very nice, clean, and spacious. The staff was very informative and showed me around. I spent a whole lot of time there. I did not eat any of the food, but the dining area was very nice, clean, and pleasant.
