Very good hotel in an excellent location right on the coast. Hotel provides a courtesy shuttle taxi/minibus to & from the airport – about 20 minutes journey time – which you arrange by calling the hotel when you have collected your luggage after your arrival flight. We had a Lagoon View Room with a balcony which was very nice with... More

The helpdesk are not helpful at all. They have a very rough, arrogant and have an unfriendly attitude. First they gave us a room with a big airconditioning system just outside of our window making noise continously. We had paid for a mountain view and the view of this room was only the dirty ugly noisy car park. We went... More

So this may not be the nicest hotel but it is nice. It's also a great deal, plus the location is great if you plan on exploring the island. The pool area is awesome and has two hot tubs for relaxing after kayaking or hiking nearby. We have stayed here both times we've come to kauai. We live on Oahu... More

Overall, it was a good hotel. This hotel is easy to find and near the airport. We checked in late, the front desk person said that our double beds were changed to a King size bed, it wasn't a big deal for us and we got our parking fee waived. When we got to our room the shower didn't work... More

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. A property like ours tends to enjoy very high occupancy during the peak travel periods and for this reason, we typically do not guarantee requested bed types. However, we are pleased that we were able to address your concerns promptly and satisfactorily. In our continuous endeavor to enhance guest experience,... More

We were totally impressed by it when we 1st arrived, the tree lined driveway, beautiful grounds, good room, nice pools. However, after we realized the beach was not suitable for swimming were a little disappointed and then after we visited the Marriott at Poipu beach, the Sheraton and the Grand Hyatt we definitely realized that there are much better options....

I landed at the Lihue airport and picked up my rental car from Hertz. The hotel was just about 10 mins. drive from the airport (all you had to do was make 2 turns on highway 56, Kuhio Highway) and you were right at the hotel! The hotel has a few large paved and covered parking lots where you can... More

We had a great experience at this hotel and really loved the staff. They were so friendly and it is a great location to see the island from. It didn't take long to commute to the north and south shore from this location. The pools and hot tubs were great. Food was good. The beach is nice to walk along... More

We stayed at the Kauai Beach Resort & Botique for four days between islands and loved every second. It's a beautiful resort with wonderful oceanfront room / views from everywhere.. Because it's smaller you will love the ease of doing just about everything on site. The first few minutes on the property we met a Long Island transplant named Elaine... More

This was our first trip to Kauai so I booked a package deal that included the Kauai Beach Resort for a 7 night stay. The location was centrally located, a few miles away from the airport. It was convenient being central so you don't have to drive all the way around the island to get to the other end. I... More

I spent six nights here. Overall my experience was positive although I'd like to highlight some pros and cons: The location is perfect as a start point to explore the island. The only thing I don't like is how dangerous is the access to the highway, specially South bound. I enjoyed the surroundings, the well-maintained gardens and the pools; it's... More
