This smaller resort has it all except high prices and the large crowds. Beautiful pool, wonderful beach (not for swimming however), Kids pool and water slide, gourmet restaurant, nice pool side in the day and in Shutters at night bar scene with nightly music. Right now every other Sunday they have a Jazz jam happening. And I mean "happening". Very... More

Location quiet, removed and inviting. Seaside location with lots of beachfront. Staff very helpful and courteous. Food good. Layed-back ambience. Not for the fast crowd, but great for those seeking asylum from mainland pressures and hustle.

This was our first trip to Kauai. The place we booked was at Islander on the beach witha private owner and it was so shabby and dirty I could not stay there. Knkwing we would not get our money back, and seeing that Kauai Beach resort had openings, we walked in and inquired. The pools are lovely and there is... More

First of all - to the people complaining of a resort fee - this is a very very standard thing these days at resorts - not sure why you are all so shocked. We booked a package deal and it was clearly stated before booking. It is $20/day and INCLUDES parking, wifi, towels etc etc... I also found the Wifi... More

Stayed here 3 years ago and noticed this time the hotel seems to have gone downhill since then. The grounds are still beautiful and carefully tended but the furnishings starting right in the lobby when you first enter are sadly in need of replacement or at the very least reupholstering. Our room was a large room just as before but... More

This was definitely a mixed experience for us. Three were good points and bad points to this resort. First the positives. Kauai Beach Resort is in a really good location. It's only about a 10 minute drive from the airport, which is really nice after a long plane ride. It's also about midway between the north shore and the Waimea... More

Almost Hawaiian dream land. Our third visit in as many years. It starts with being greeted with genuine Aloha spirit by a great entrance crew. It continues with a mostly--not always--pleasant reception. The lobby is already bright and cheerful and overlooking one of the most gorgeous sites on the Island. A beautifully landscaped, huge court yard with swaying palm trees... More

The staff are very nice, hotel is fancy. Nice swimming pool and jacuzzi. The parking is a little far, so you have to either do a valet (which is already included in the resort fee), or park and walk for 3 min.

Property have awesome landscaping and it's pleasure to walk around and enjoy the weather. Beach at the hotel is average but there's plenty of very nice beaches... More

We stayed in January again, our 3rd time at this hotel, and had a wonderful vacation again. The pool and spa areas, rooms, and the rest of the grounds are well maintained and cared for. The sounds of the ocean and the views are excellent, the bar has entertainment nightly, and the staff pleasant and eager to please. On Tuesdays,... More
