Not enough words can describe the lovely time my wife and I had on our 10 day stay for our honeymoon. Neither of us had ever been to Hawaii let alone Kauai, and from the minute we arrived at 10PM the valet was already calling us by our names and showed us nothing but absolute class. Every employee went out... More

We booked this property after extensive research for our babymoon. We wanted to stay somewhere that was quiet and intimate and this fit the bill. The location in Poipu was wonderful and easy to get to many restaurants, shops, etc. The property, itself, was tasteful and modern. No shortage of chairs, easy access to a very small beach (and big... More

From start to finish, our stay at Koa Kea Hotel & Resort was amazing. The location of the hotel is perfect, in the heart of Poipu Beach on Kauai. I booked through IPrefer and I highly recommend the website. Upon arrival, we were greeted enthusiastically and brought to the front desk for check-in. We were there to celebrate my birthday,...

We stayed In a ocean front room at the 2nd floor for four nights. A guest relations stuff gave us good advices against our asking and requests in advance. There was nothing but the ocean what we wanted . And there was a great Hawaiian hospitality.

OMG ! What a fantastic hotel! Stay four nights in an ocean front room. What a spectacular view! We could see whales from our Lanai. But most impressive was the service we received. Every employee met us with a smile and were extremely polite. The room was beautiful . I will definitely be staying in this hotel again. We sprang... More

The property is very compact; all buildings are 3 stories. Valet parking, very good breakfast package, "free WiFi" (more on that later). The room was nicely decorated with sand, seashells, and coral. The room was equipped with a small fridge and an espresso maker. Bed was very comfortable and sleep quality was excellent. It was turned down every evening. There... More

I stayed here in mid February and quite enjoyed the hotel and location. When I booked this hotel, I couldn't decide between Koa Kea and the Grand Hyatt down the street for my husband and I. Koa Kea won, but, I had to see for myself if I made the right decision so we drove down to the Grand Hyatt... More
