Quite nice hotel with good prices and usable location. Coral Reef is less than 10 miles from the Lihue airport, in Kapaa town. Many of markets, souvenir shops and supermarkets are close to the hotel. There are many different restaurants around as well. The beach is just 20-30 meters from the hotel. There is also really nice and long promenade... More

I shopped for rooms in Kapa'a that were economical, and the Hotel Coral Reef "Garden View" room was one of the best buys on the island. We went to Kaua'i to enjoy the outdoor experiences and just wanted a place to rest our heads at night. Although our room looked out onto a neighboring establishment's parking lot, it was separated...

Amazingly how one could find a room for such a reasonable price just few steps away from the ocean! We received an upgrade to ocean view unexpectedly, so could enjoy evenings at veranda overlooking at palm and beach. Just be careful: reefs are starting right at the shore, so take your rafting boots! Room is beautifully furnished. Only thing we... More

Stayed there for a long weekend in August. Doesn't look very impressive from the road, but lovely once you're there. The ocean front room was perfect - walk out the door, across the grass, and have our first morning coffee sitting on the beach with our feet in the water. The hotel is small - no giant "resort," but has... More

This was hotel #2 of our honeymoon trip to Hawaii. We rented it after reading the reviews. Ask for a room with a full view of the ocean. There are two buildings, one is parallel to the ocean and the other perpendicular (half a view). The room was clean, you could also open the bay windows completely, which made it... More

When i first got there I felt very welcome. The hotel was beautiful inside and out. My room was very comfortable and only 50 feet from the ocean. I was treated with respect and I will be definitely going back to stay there. The rate for the room was great and they had a small breakfast and coffee for the... More

This property is right on the beach and very small. The staff are guardedly helpful. The rooms are adequate size but seem small due to massive over sized furnishings. On our last night, we were awakened by a rustling in the room and a flick of the light revealed a small rat (NOT a large mouse!). Needless to say, that... More

One of my favorite hotels for the price. Regular rooms are nice. Everything you need in a room but a little small. Beds were comfortable. If you get an upgraded room overlooking to ocean it is ...

July 2014 This was my first time to beautiful kaua'i. I didn't know what to expect when I got here but I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel coral reef. From the outside it doesn't look like much and made me second guess my reservations. But once I saw the room all the second guessing went right... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is literally right in front of the beach. But, there are very large lawn between sandy beach and beach walk, and you will see beach, ocean, coconut trees, beyond the lawn. You can sit on the lawn, do yoga, or eat whatever you like. Also, the location is the north... More
