My husband and I were generously treated toa weeks stay at the Beach Boy Resort about 8 years ago. We fell in love, so much so that even though we said "no" during the presentation, we went back to the office the morning we were due to leave and asked for the rep that did our presentation. We bought in that morning and have been back nearly every year since. Only missed 2 years because once we sent our kids for their honeymoon and then one year we wanted to try the big island. Kauai remains our happy place! We are still great friends with the rep too, even though she no longer works there.
We love the rooms, whether ocean view or garden. It doesn't matter which end of the building your on, the beach is only a few steps away! Our son enjoyed sleeping in the hammocks at night. I sleep better than I do at home with the sound of the ocean crashing on the shore, and I wake up happier with the ocean sounds and the hawaiian coffe watching the sun rise.
The staff there make us feel like royalty every single time we go and never hesitate to accomodate any and every need promptly!
We are taking some different friends this year (end of May) and can hardly wait. The ONLY bad thing about this island or this resort is 'going home' at the end of the vacation. We love taking people that have never been and we find new adventures each time we go. If I could only bring my dogs I would never leave!
The resort restaraunt is the only 5 star one on the island. It can be pricey but is well worth the splurge. The food is fabulously delicious, the chef is very accomodating and tthe service is impeccable.
