We stayed here for 6 nights in March 2013 after spending 7 nights on Oahu and could not have been happier with our stay. We read all the reviews about there being few activities here, the resort being a bit off the beaten path, undesirable views of abandoned/unfinished buildings and the lack of reciprocity with Marriott Kauai Beach Club facilities (namely the pools and the beach chairs). We were pleasantly surprised that none of these items were a factor for us. We were not at all bothered by the close proximity of the airport or the helicopters that flew by the resort throughout the day. We actually enjoyed seeing the helicopters as we took a tour and enjoyed seeing the resort from above.
Upon arrival, we were greeted and treated wonderfully. Abigail at the front desk could not have been any more helpful or accommodating to us. There were 4 of us in our party and each of us were treated equally as great. She even went out of her way to advise us to check in at the front desk for chairs, mats and other beach items before purchasing any. Lucky for us, when we stopped in, she had plenty for us to use. This was a huge bonus so if you stay here, stop by the front desk and see what they have.
As MVC Owners, we had submitted our villa request prior to arrival and were not offered what we requested. When I expressed my dissatisfaction to Abigail, she assured me that this villa was wonderful and that she has never had a single complaint. She was absolutely right, we found the villa to be absolutely wonderful and we are now a fan of 1st floor units, especially if they are even half as nice as our unit (Building B1111). Our villa was conveniently located near the pool, the barbeque grills and had both an island and a mountain view. The villa was outstanding! It was the best villa we have ever had an owners and will now hold all other MVC resorts to higher standards!
The villa, the grounds, the location, the views and the staff at Marriott's Kauai Lagoons - Kalanipu'u were second to none. Everything about this resort exceeded our expectations. We have shared our experiences and pictures with family members and friends. We can't wait to see what becomes of this resort and look forward to returning in the future. Based on what we saw while we were there, this resort has the potential of becoming one of the Top 5 resorts on Kauai.
All rooms are ocean view so I don't think you can go wrong with any room.
