Got a package deal at Costo travel which includes airfare, hotel with ocean view, car rental and smith luau for 3! A little hesitate to book from this hotel because while I'm reading some bad reviews about the cleanliness, attitudes of employees, no free wifi at room and checking in on the first day! But we take a quality issue... More

Hotel was clean and beds were very comfortable. Not great access to the ocean and no swim beach. Pools were nice but closed early. Very close to the airport but no plane noise. Restaurant was okay - kind of pricey and didn't have a lot of fresh fruit like I had expected since we were in Hawaii! Concierge was very... More

We were flying to Kauai with friends from Oahu and didn't know where to stay. Of course, we looked to Tripadvisor :) after we looked at the reviews, Kauai Beach Resort looked like it met all of our desired criteria - close to the airport, on the water, private, bars, pools, waterfalls... And a great value! We found ourselves driving... More

Kauai Beach Resort is a bargain-priced, family-friendly hotel, with a convenient location. Situated about 5 minutes north of the airport, between Lihue and Kapaa, it provides a good starting point for driving explorations to both the north and south/southwest parts of the island. My girlfriend and I stayed for a weekend in October, in conjunction with some Friday work. The... More

We don't stay in a lot of resorts, but this one definitely impressed. The pool area is lovely and the location on the East side of the island is great. We would recommend getting a rental car, as it would be hard to get around without one. The food on the resort is quite expensive, but pretty convenient.

After staying at a different hotel on the island, this was a great reality check of what we do not want. Service was cold to non existence. Don't expect anyone to go over above unless you pay for additional service. Bottom line... Did not feel welcome... Felt it was more of a inconvience than a welcome to our resort!

We stayed here for three nights at the end of our honeymoon. It wasn't impressive. The pools were nice, but the beach is not swimmable. The room was clean enough and had a nice comfortable king bed.

Arrived at 13:05 room not ready. Guarantee is that rooms will be ready for check in by 15:00. Charged $16 a day to park rental car on hotel grounds. Breakfast buffet is normally $20 a day, but if you book in advance at reception time $15 per person per day. I discovered at checkout that I had been given a... More

We also had just left Maui after staying at the Hilton Grand Wailea there. So we knew this resort would not be on the same caliber.

We began our trip with KBR, after reading many reviews that it is pretty good for the room pricing. Our flight arrived early, so we pre-checked in at 10am. I didn't realize how tired and jet lagged we would be--just wanted to get a room. However, their check in policy is very strict and we were not given our room... More
