Our readers say: This "drop-dead gorgeous, low-key resort," where the grounds are speckled with waterfalls, gardens, streams, and ponds, is on a cliff overlooking a bay. Rooms have private lanais overlooking the gardens or the Pacific and are done in tropical colors, with headboards that have pineapple motifs. Perched above Hulopo‘e Bay, Fresco specializes in contemporary Italian with ingredients supplied by local fishermen and farmers. While "the food is disappointing," staff are not only "helpful and courteous, they’re just plain nice." Pool attendants supply Evian spritzes and chilled towels.
