“This place is a dump!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

The place is very outdated & rundown! The decor is ugly and uncomfortable. We got a 2 bedroom & it's only on the 3rd floor with no elevator & the main bedroom is a loft with a half wall so no privacy. There is no air conditioning and is very stuffy even with the lanai door open. We have a couple of people who are disabled and there is no accessibility.I wouldn't want to stay here again!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

My Family and I stayed here for a week through our timeshare. After reading a few reviews, I called a few days before we arrived to insure we could stay in a upstairs unit.

Grounds and Location
This place is right on the beach! Yes, you can't play at the beach due to the coral reef but the view is amazing. Pool was great and the hot tub was nice for evening dips. The bbq area is also a great plus but get there early as the grills get packed. It's located off the main Highway- Kauai has one "Main Highway" which is more of a road for us mainlanders. There is a few places to eat close by and a Safeway about a block away.

Staff and Services
Checking in and Checking out were easy and the staff was pretty attentive. Needed more towels and pillows, got them within 10 minutes. They gave us suggestions on dining and were very nice during our stay.

Inside the Unit
The decor is dated, think pastels in the 1980's...needs a facelift. It's off the main street so it can be noisy at times. I could see this being an issue for those very warm Hawaiian nights, also the bedrooms are located right next to the walkways. The unit was clean and pretty spacious, had everything we needed. The bathroom was a very nice size, water pressure could have been stronger. Couch needs to be replaced, just old and not very comfortable.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request to stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

Plus side: comfortable bed, ocean and sunrise view, clean swimming pool and jacuzzi, expected amenities
Minus side: too close to road - very noisy,especially when trying to sleep, and parking lot light shone brightly into bedroom
Coral, rock beach

This unit is old, and getting quite shabby, but the general location is convenient

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

We stayed 6 days at Kapaa Shores. We were in a upstairs unit. With loft. Had a view if the pool and partial ocean. The two kids had a blast in the pool and beaches. Though you can't play in the beach on the property due to the coral reef. There are plenty of beaches a short drive or walk away. The decor is mid 90s but in good shape, the master tv could use a flat screen updating. But who's there to watch tv anyways. The washer/dryer was a lifesaver. It was a great stay and we usualy had the pool to ourselves or with few others. Our favorite activity at night was to take the kids toad hunting with flashlights! They loved it and the toads were big and plentiful! A great location just across the street from Starbucks, Safeway, the best ice cream I have ever had next to the Panda Express by Safeway. Hope to visit again soon!

Tile floors and thin walls made the stay here awful. You could hear conversations, shower use and people walking on the floor above at all hours. I won't be back.

My husband and I, his brother and wife stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath rental in Building C. The sunrise from our balcony were incredible. Waves lulled us to sleep every night. We saw whales while we grilled dinner. The grounds are well kept as well as other common areas (pool, BBQ grills). Pool/spa closing times were enforced.

Front desk service great to average depending whatgirls were on. The room was great we had a 2 bedroom. The loft bedroom can carry noise though if someone is asleep in the loungs on the foldout.Location is central and close to grocery stores. It has a pool and spa and nice ocean view, and owners room w ith a computer. I liked best the pool. What I liked least was the traffic noise which was bad up till about 11pm and started about 6.30AM. Bring earplugs if you sleep light!
