Our first impression, having arrived to our cabana late evening after a very long travel day, was not overly positive. The suite had a definite worn feel, a very strong smell of disinfectant, old dirty carpet and a noisy air conditioner.
The sunshine brightened things up a bit - although i wouldn't stay here again for the room.
The facilities are a big bonus, especially if you're traveling with kids. There's an awesome playground very close by, a big green field which is great for letting kids run around (or after the chickens) and a nice beach area. There's a toddler-friendly sheltered swim area and another for adults. The pools are also nice enough, though colder than swimming in the ocean, but the hot tub was handy for warming up.
The space along the coast is great for morning jogs/walks and leads to another cool kid structure (series of ramps/slides), called the bridge and more beautiful beach.
The hotel advertises "free pupus" for friday happy hour- don't expect too much. On our visit it was fried rice and spring rolls. The live music and outdoor patio was pleasant.
There are lots of roosters/chickens/chicks running around the property and we heard them through out the early morning/day (sometimes as early as 4am)- not sure if you'd hear them if you were staying in the hotel (as we were in a cabana). But there seem to be roosters everywhere in Kauai, so not sure you can avoid this.
