Kappa Shores isn't fancy, nor does it pretend to be. The rooms are clean and comfortably furnished. If you want 4 star quality, and a swimming beach outside your door - KS is not the place. If you want plenty of space, and ocean views that will remind you that you are in a tropical paradise, KS is a good... More

Our Family of 4 stayed 1 week at Kapaa Shores in March 2013 - we booked through our Vacation International Timeshare. Great location, close to Safeway for grocery shopping, close to tons of restaurants, close to the bike path along the beach - very central on the Island of Kauai. The suite had renovated bathrooms, very clean, we did have... More

This is our second time here and we have a middle floor unit looking out to the ocean. Suite is well laid out but unfortunate the bedrooms have to face the parking lot. If there are only two of you use the Murphy bed and listen to ocean waves instead as it faces yard and ocean. Doves come and visit... More

I have been to Hawaii 8 times now... we stayed here in May of 2013. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, but I was amazed! We stayed on the second floor and had an AWESOME view of the ocean. The grounds are beautiful and kept up well. Yes... it is an older condo, but I... More

Stay booked as a Diamond timeshare referral. Avoid like the plague. Photos/description misleading. Old, out of date. Exterior dirty. Entry way dirty with lots of bird poop. Interior furniture old/uncomfortable. Bathmat looked like original from when location first built. No beach to speak of. Bedroom window faced parking lot. Wakened by garbage truck lights/alarms at 4:00 a.m. Supposed to stay... More

Stayed here for it's centrally located convenience but won't be returning. Had a second floor unit (201) and there seemed to be an elephant or two in the third floor unit. This started around 6am and lasted until midnight a couple times. The walls for your neighbor next door must be uninsulated and only 3 inches thick. Could hear their... More

This is an older condo, but is fairly well kept up. The furnishings were older, but still in great shape and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc. that allowed you to cook and serve up to six folks, but if you are going to do a lot of cooking, be prepared to... More

My husband and I just returned from Kauai. We booked a one bedroom at Kapa'a Shores Resort through Diamond Resorts. This is not a Diamond Resort but this resort is contracted through Diamond. The Diamond Resort in Poipu was full. After I booked the trip I started reading all the bad comments and was worried about what we were going... More

Very disappointed, again used my timeshare and was not impressed. The room was outdated and musty and by the way is smoke free in case they do not tell yoiu that before you book, which they did not tell us and my husband is a smoker. The pool is very small, the grills that they have, well there is only... More
