While pictures of the resort are enticing, they are misleading. We traveled in mid-July at a time when the humidity was high. The resort has no AC in the rooms. The front desk has AC, the workout room has AC (areas where the staff work), but the guests must be content with floor fans. Sleep was a constant issue. It... More

If you like snorkeling and sunsets you cannot stay at a better place! It is truly the best location I have ever stayed on this island - and I have stayed many times on both sides! But I want to add about the staff- this IS a timeshare although some people are just renting from owners. That said unlike other... More

My mom has a timeshare here and I've been often. It never disappoints. This is not a huge resort! This is a "home away from home" sort of place. The units are large and comfortable. The décor is very Hawaiian and beautiful and clean. The main pool is really pretty (they have redone it since my last visit so I'm... More

Once we arrived at Lawai beach resort in Kauai we were originally given a room that the view of the beach was blocked by the beach house restaurant , Karanza the young lady at the front desk was able to move us to a nicer room with a beautiful view of the beach right above the pool, everyone at the...

Lawai Beach Resort is amazing. Beautiful and spacious rooms, all the comforts of home. This "timeshare" facility has more kitchen amenities than any other one we have stayed at, and that is a plus for me, we do a lot of our own cooking. It is well put together, oh also they have a washer and dryer in each room-sweet.... More

Amazing place to stay, the rooms are top notch, staff and service were exceptional. See Biba at the concierge desk before you book anything she is great and knows the island well. Location,Location,Location, my favorite part of this trip might be having coffee every morning watching the waves and hearing sounds of the ocean from our balcony. We also shared... More

What a delightful place to stay! Across the street from the ocean - a beautiful and exciting view of sails and surfers! - Clean, comfortable accommodations, furnished tastefully, lacking hardly anything at all - if you need something, they'll do their best to provide it for you! The grounds, beautifully landscaped, especially the pool and spa area! The staff, from... More

Clean, clean,clean! Everything is top notch and in great working order...we had a room with a view in the al'li building. ..it was above our expectations. We will definitely be coming back! The pool at the al'li building is the quiet pool...since we didn't have kiddos with us, we really appreciated the serenity. ..the pool was right below us and... More

We arrived for a one week stay and was immediately impressed by the cleanliness of the grounds. Our room (able to be accessed by elevator or stairs) was on the fourth floor. The first thing I noticed was that there was no A/C so it was quite stuffy in our room, but it didn't take long to realize that opening... More

We just spent a week here and in general found the rooms very noisy and musty. The views are nice but the bedrooms all face the parking lot. Above and beyond vehicles moving around early in the morning prior to 6:00am , there are loud noises and machine rumblings every hour on the hour from what seems like the laundry... More
