After extensive research, I decided on the Koa Kea as the hotel for our honeymoon...and I was not disappointed. This is the perfect location for any honeymooner or couple traveling without children. The staff was beyond friendly! The Valet's knew our names from the moment we stepped out of the car! Everybody working there is so friendly, which is refreshing... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Koa Kea for our honeymoon. We were so impressed by all of the wonderful amenities, beautiful surroundings, and fabulous staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would return in a heartbeat. The facilities were clean and the service was top notch. A totally different experience than the other resorts you may stay...

The Koa Kea Hotel is a small getaway location in Kauai. We were honeymooning and it was perfect for our needs. It is sandwiched between two larger resorts and we almost missed the turn upon arrival. Due to location there is only valet parking available but it is included in your "resort fee." The valets were all wonderful. We enjoyed... More

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary here. In fact, we renewed our vows on Shipwrecked Beach in Poi'pu. This hotel was perfect for us. A resort hotel but with a much more intimate feel. Upon arrival the hotel sent flowers and champagne to our room. Wow. We had an oceanfront room (not ocean view) on the second floor. You cannot... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here with my husband and friends. The hotel was beautiful, very clean, and the staff was extremely friendly and always willing to help you out. The rooms were a perfect size and very modern looking. The property was nice and quiet and did not have many children. I enjoyed the deal we had with breakfast... More

I for one enjoyed the stay here. Yes, it is an old property that has been done up (and sometimes it shows), but it's small with not a gazzilion people there. The grounds are immaculate. Our room was a little on the dark side, but was spacious enough for the two of us. The bed was fantastic. Service from the... More

We came for a week long vacation in celebration of my husbands50th birthday. We booked over three months in advance of what we thought was a FULL ocean view. When we arrived at the hotel the room it was a huge disappointment we got partial ocean view and it was on the ground floor and we felt very exposed as... More

This hotel describes itself as a boutique ocean view hotel. It's in a really lovely setting but it's a mini resort, it doesn't have the luxury feeling or uniqueness of a boutique. Saying that, we had a great time there. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the concierge service is great and the place is very peaceful. Although you... More

Boutique hotel on the beach at Poipu. Great staff, beautiful views and the most comfortable bed we have experienced in quite some time. Restaurant was vg, as well. No self parking but valet was included.
