“Back again to Kauai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We can't stay away long from Kauai and Kapa'a. We managed to survive 10 days in the Hawaiian winter as one night it plummeted to 58 degrees Fahrenheit! Really?? It was just a tad chillier at home in Canada.
Once again the staff at this SVC resort went above and beyond the call of duty.
Landscaping was immaculate...however I did notice a lack of chickens this time. I'll be honest I enjoy them but I don't have to put up with them 365 days a year.

This is our second vacation at the Beachboy. We had enjoyed our first visit about 5 years ago, though that was for only a few days. This time we were there for a full two weeks.

The apartment was spacious, very well appointed and very clean. There was no sign of wear and chipping from any of the contents from furniture to crockery, one of my pet hates! The grounds have been kept in fantastic condition by an army of gardeners seen out hard artwork first thing each morning. Quite amazing. All staff we encountered were very professional and friendly as well as being eager to please. We didn't get to go to the restaurant, it was on our list of "must does" but we didn't book far enough ahead.

Just one little moan, there was no outside light on the balcony making it impossible to enjoy an evening meal and listen to the sea crashing a few yards away.

We will return!

We stayed here for four nights in Dec. 2012. For the price (we paid $164/per night) we weren't sure what to expect. What a pleasant surprise! Our two bedroom, two bath garden view villa with an island decor was very clean and nicely laid out. The bedrooms are on opposite ends of each other with the living area and kitchen between them. One bedroom and the living room had sliding glass doors leading out to a large balcony, while the master bedroom had its own private balcony. The kitchen had plenty of countertop space and was well stocked. We also had a stackable washer/dryer behind folding doors in one of the bathrooms. Although our room was called 'garden view' we had an ocean view from our balcony and could hear the waves crashing on shore.

This resort is exactly the type of place we love staying at while in Hawaii. It's spread out and not overwhelmingly large which allows for a peaceful, island experience. The grounds are well kept with winding sidewalks that connect the buildings to each other. Gently swaying on one of their hammocks between two palm trees while the sun warms you and the ocean slides up the sand just feet away...paradise.

We didn't use the pool but sat by it a couple of times. Nice free form design with a small waterfall and a kiddie pool alongside. The hot tub sits up on a small hill, allowing you to see the ocean while soaking. Another nice feature is an area of tables, grills and fire pits which are lit each evening.

The beach area is narrow and steep, but georgeous! Beautiful sunrises, driftwood, lava ledges and even the occasional monk-seal snoozing on the beach.

The resort is directly behind the open air Coconut Marketplace. It's a quick walk across a quiet street to do a little shopping or eat a delicious breakfast at Eggbert's while a rainbow forms over the mountains. They also have a farmer's market in the parking lot on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Great place to get locally grown fruits and veggies.

Pros: Clean, quiet, great room layout, centrally located for sightseeing, feet from the ocean's edge, six miles from airport.

Cons: Non swimable beach, traffic congestion on the only main 'highway' in front of resort (obviously not the resort's fault, but be aware especially in the afternoon hours).

Room Tip: The buildings are long and narrow, running east to west. The oceanFRONT rooms are on the east end...

This review focuses on excellent customer service throughout the resort, but in particular by Tasha the concierge and Thomas in marketing. We met both of them when we came to our room to find that the previous occupants had not yet moved out and were nowhere to be found. Both worked beyond their regular work day and gave us personal cell and email addresses to make certain we could call them with any questions we had. I might add that this was on a Friday night. We were given dining vouchers and special rates on activities because of the inconvenience. When the couple did return to their room, Thomas made sure that a special housekeeping crew was called back to prepare the room for us. Neither Tasha nor Thomas was responsible for the glitch, but their customer service was outstanding.

KCBBGM, General Manager at Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy, responded to this review, January 24, 2013
Mahalo for the positive comments about customer service. So often we focus on the negative and report the bad experiences we encounter. There are so many times that our Concierge team works hard to make a guest's stay GREAT! It is part of their job to ask people to go on a time share tour but that is not the only thing they do. They really are focused on making everyone's stay a great one even if that guest is not staying at the Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy. Just to be clear the issue the guest encountered was not one here at the Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy but a neighboring property. Our concierge team worked with contacts they had at the neighboring property to help the guest resolve their challenges.

We stayed at the Kauai Coast Resort for 8 days in 2012, but didn't get around to writing a review until now. We loved our stay and would definitely go back again! The staff was wonderful and treated us and everyone in our group (25 people) great! We were actually married on the grounds here with our reception at the Hukilau Lanai on-site. From my first initial contact with the staff (late 2011) to the moment we left, we felt at home here. My only complaint was with booking our group rate with their corporate office out of AZ...the booking manager was not always prompt. No disrespect to the staff on-site as they were wonderful. Yes, there are no elevators, but that didn't matter to us. If you must have a ground floor, just call ahead of time to try to get one. The room was great and bed super comfortable (I'm considering contacting them as we are shopping for a new bed to find out what theirs were). Even though they didn't come and clean everyday (because we had the "green rate"), they did replenish any towels and take out the trash everyday. We could call the front desk for anything we needed and they would be there within minutes. We took advantage of the pool and hot tub everyday and night - the grounds at and around the pool were beautiful. We had a welcome barbeque for everyone on the first night everyone arrived and one of the few grill areas worked great for this. The pool bar and snack area was handy and service great! After a day or two, we began mixing drinks in our room after getting groceries and would drink those at the pool to save a little money. Outside of our reception, we ate at the Hukilau Lanai on two separate occasions which was delicious...a must eat place on the island! When we go back to Hawaii to celebrate and anniversary in the upcoming years, we will definitely go back to the Kauai Coast Resort!

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so if you require a ground floor, call ahead of time.

Check-in and check-out were handled in a very timely manner. Staff was very friendly and attentive. We stayed in the Ali'i building on the second floor in a one bedroom condo. The unit was very clean, with a fully stocked kitchen. Our unit faced north overlooking the large vacant field towards the Courtyard by Marriott with a partial ocean view. Great area to walk along the coast, we enjoyed watching the locals fish on the weekend.
We liked the size of the resort, not to small and not to large. Guests can enjoy lounging along the resort's coastline and in the evening the lounging can continue in the new fire pit area.
Certainly doesn't hurt to have the number one restaurant in Kauai on property, The Hukilau Lanai.
If traffic is a concern and you are heading north there is a by-pass just to the left as you exit the resort, this drops you at the north end of Kapaa.
We did not experience the Concierge concerns expressed in other reviews. We did listen to the pitch and in return recieved $100 off our Rainbow Kayak Tour, which was excellent.

Room Tip: Our room in the Ali'i building on the 2nd floor was very quiet.
