A cozy and beautiful hotel in best place for exploring the island. Nice rooms with good space and ocean view. Very friendly and helpful owner. More or less in the middle between north shore and waimea and 15 minutes from the airport. Breakfast could be more than just refreshments but still a good way to start the day. We loved... More

Wonderful boutique hotel right on the water. We loved it and could not bring ourselves to leave. We were there for 8 nights (9days). Oceanfront rooms either at ground level opening to a grassy area and the beach, or 2nd floor with a balcony. Great king sized bed. Perfect location for exploring. Twenty to 30 minutes to the Northshore (we... More

nice, unfenced location directly at the beach with a breathtaking sunrise. Accommodation "Kauai-style" - a little bit "shabby" but o.k., nice rooms with smallll fridge, ice service, microwave, coffee mate, AC,TV an WIFI. Room service (cleaning) should be optimized - vacuum cleaner seems to be broken since weeks, floor really dirty. Breakfast simple but o.k. Staff at the hotel very... More

My gf & I had our 1st visit to Kauai and we stayed at the Hotel Coral Reef between Christmas and New Years. We loved Kauai and will return and when we do, we’ll stay at the Hotel Coral Reef again. Positives: Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Everyone we dealt with had the “Aloha” spirit and treated us like... More

Luxurious well appointed room overlooking the water. So picturesque that another guest threw a hammock between the palm trees. Nicely decorated. Large and comfortable plush bed. Great wifi. Only 10 min from Lihue Airport, so a nice stay before heading to the North side. The staff were very friendly and accommodated an early check-in.

We have stayed at Hotel Coral Reef for 4 years now. We always stay there when we first arrive as it is relatively close to the airport and on our way to the north where we always stay. The rooms are lovely but they are showing some wear. I hope they keep them up! Because the views are beautiful and... More

We have stayed here three times (twice in April-May of 2014 and once before that.). The lovely, well decorated room, furnished with a solid and comfortable bed as well as a having a great view out to the Kapa'a path and the ocean was convenient and quiet. We enjoyed having a place to sit just outside our unit and people... More

What a great way to spend your nights and mornings by sitting on the patio and being right in front of the ocean. Loved the views & the location of the beachfront rooms. Definitely worth it to be right on the ocean, along the beach walk. Super close to the main part of town, easy walk. The Front Desk host... More

Loved our stay here. Was great to have a beachfront room at a reasonable price. We had an upstairs, ocean view room at the end of the building - was clean if a little old fashioned. The cycle path was perfect for our daily run and there are tons of restaurants nearby. Yes, the morning refreshments are limited but they... More
