Kaanapali Beach Club or Hono Koa?

I can stay at either the Kaanapali Beach Club or the Hono Koa. We've stayed at KBC before and like its location. We would have scenic view unit. I know it's not a full kitchen, which is typically what we prefer. I know the pool is bigger and overall a fancier resort than the Hono Koa. Haven't stayed at the Hono Koa but I like that the resort is oceanfront. I don't know which 2BR unit we would have there but it is a Sat check-in. Does that mean that it will be an ocean view or ocean front unit? Like that it's a full kitchen and has a w/d.

I know we have some owners here of both and would love some feedback / input.

We stayed at both in September 2018. A week at each back to back. Hono Koa is ocean front. No beach or beach access at that time. Full kitchen at Hono Koa but no AC and very small pool. Hono Koa is also showing it age. At the time KBC had almost no beach. Do not think we would stay at Hono Koa again.
