The staff were classy, especially Justin the sushi chef. Great sushi, very nice and quiet young man. He went out of his way to remember us and ask how the excursions were going on our honeymoon. The beach was private and nice, the facilities were great. Thanks for the bottle of champagne and nuts and sweet cards. Nice start to... More

We just returned (yesterday!) from this lovely hotel. It is personal, contemporary and gracious. Our room, which was on the side away from the Marriott, facing the ocean, the corner room on the third floor, was just the perfect location. The beds are so comfortable, the decorating soothing and tasteful. You are basically right on the beach, so sunsets from... More

My husband and I stayed here September 22 - September 30th. The hotel was just what we imagined! From our very first greeting throughout our stay every employee was extremely courteous and helpful in every way. I did a ton of research and this was the smallest hotel I could find on the island, roughly 100 bedrooms. Beautiful pool (perfect... More

This was our first visit back to Kauai in several years and we wanted a quiet place with great service. We got it, jackpot! This quiet, lovely spot had a staff that went the extra step. All employees were very friendly and would do what ever it took to make you comfortable. We asked for some extra pillows, done, no... More

Amazing property and service- everything that defines the aloha spirit wrapped in such a romantic and relaxing package! Our room & lanai were so perfect, and what a view!! It was also such a luxury to have the Red Salt restaurant on site that provided us with some terrific meals. Definitely 5 star on the Lobster Ravioli!!

A fantastic small resort with direct access to two beautiful beaches. The restaurant serves meals of a night time (the best meal we had in our five nights on Kauai so be sure to book a table as it is popular with both in-house guests and visitors. Breakfast was also very good with both a la carte and buffet options... More

Koa Kea was a really nice small hotel. The service was excellent. We had maid service twice a day. Free Valet. All of the staff was very polite and helpful. The restaurant was very good also. We had the filet and shrimp carbonara.

We had a very nice time at the Koa Kea on our honeymoon early this month. Koa Kea was small enough to feel very personal, with friendly staff who all recognized us and/or addressed us by name. The rooms were nicely appointed, and the location was great. Having perused all the hotels on Po'ipu Beach, we would return to the... More

We loved it so much that for my birthday he surprised me and we stayed there in October 2014 (this review will reflect the most recent October 2014 stay). This is my very first trip advisor review, i apologize if... More
