We had four nights recently at the Luana Inn. It was a lovely place to stay. Quiet with beautiful tropical gardens and lovely views overlooking the swimming pool. Erin and Ken are wonderful hosts and cannot do enough for you to make everything pleasant. The breakfast each morning was different and delicious.

We arrived mid morning to drop our cases off before going on a snorkel trip. We were surprised to find several millipedes crawling across our room but Ken advised it had not been cleaned so we assumed it would be OK when we returned. When we did get back, the doors had been left wide open and there were millipedes... More

Erin and Ken are the epitome of gracious host. They were always attentive to our every need. Provided use with a blender when we chose to make our own smoothies with local fruits.

We just got back after spending 7 nights at the Luana Inn and we could not be happier with our stay. We went with our two adult daughters and had the two poolside rooms....you cannot beat the view from them and we never had any problems with noise from other guests.
