“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stayed 10 days in this hotel. It was clean, new looking, excellent service and had a nice scenic view. Only thing is this hotel is very busy. It was totally booked so you could imagine how many people were there. Waiting for the elevator took forever. Other than that, the hotel is excellent.

One of the most comfortable hotels we've stayed at since the Hotel George in D.C.--and we travel a fair amount. It was also one of the most strikingly beautiful. Our colleagues became violently ill though, having fish at the grill by the pool. We also ate there a few times, and had no problems. So, who knows, she could have eaten something else that was tainted before she arrived. If we return to Kauai, we will definitely stay here. Lots of great restaurants all around and on site. Some shopping is walking distance. The unusually large and beautiful pool in view of the ocean is paradise.

Room Tip: We didn't have a premium-view room, but still had a great view of the ocean and no noise. The gr...

We just returned from staying at Marriott Kauai Resort. We arrived and the their shuttle was there shortly, took us through a back road that is absolutely gorgeous!! beautiful trees, cute rusters walking all over, inmmaculate gardens!! Bellmen were very helpful, explaining where we would go to check in, helpful with our luggage. Receptionist was fast and very nice. Special thanks to CHAD (concergie) he explained us how to take a bus to get a pizza at a restaurant that we had heard of, BRICK OVEN PIZZA, and another time helped me with a phone call, he is an excellent employee and person!!! We got a comfortable room but because we were EXCHANGE from timeshare, we got garden view, ground floor, hidden in a corner, I was afraid to sit in my patio because I didn't know what was going to crawl out of the bushes!!!We requested second floor, at least, but it was very full, and for all the seven nights that we were getting we had a terrific price per night, so we understood and enjoyed our room very much. It was very roomy, we had two full bathrooms, two big screen T.V.'s and it was a one bedroom with living room, kitchennette, etc. Very clean, very nice bed!!! Crispy sheets!! The whole place is beautiful!!! Very clean!!! You can tell that it has its years but over all is very nice!! Very nice gym!!! Always found a machine and plenty of room to work out!! Portofino, Dukes, KuKui's very good restaurants, every meal was great!!! I got up early to go for walks on the beach or around the property, beach, etc. and the employees that I encounter always greeted me with a smile!!! Always asking if I need it anything!!! The airport is two miles away and YOU CAN'T HEAR THE PLANES!!!! I am a young person very good hearing, the only thing that you hear sometimes is the rusters, sometimes loud!! Nothing to bother so much.....Overall, a very nice vacation!!!

Room Tip: Request high floor rooms!!!

Five day stay. Beautiful pool and beach area. Enjoyed adjoining area with restaurants outside of hotel. Helpful staff, nice room. Only negative comment is that this is an older property which has been renovated. Could use interior repainting. Good central location.

Stayed five days. Impeccable service. They honored an early check-in request. One morning I walked one lap around the lobby, looking for the morning newspaper. An employee noticed I was trying to find something, stopped his vacuum walked across the room and asked me if he could help me. Everyone at this hotel smiles when they help you. Even the bellhops after we tell them we are self-parking.

Forget the amazing setting, relaxing pool area and beach and walking access to off-property services, the service was what really stuck out. In five days only had one complaint, the line at the front desk took me 10 minutes just to get a dead room key re-programmed.

Oh, and Ronnie singing the hits of the 50's and sixties on Fridays and Saturday out by the pool bar=Awesome!

This resort was amazing. The pool was just magnificent. The beach was just as good. I forgot the name of the tower we stayed in but it was the first left once you got down the escalator. It had an amazing view. They first put us in a room where I saw more of the pool then the ocean when I had paid for an ocean view room. After moving us to our Real ocean view room I was pleased and impressed by the beauty of this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Amazing Staff overall. The only reason im not giving this hotel a 5 star is because the rooms need to be more up to date and there was a little bathroom odor while we stayed there. It is not cheap to stay here so for the amount of money paid I expected a little more out the rooms, but everything else about this hotel was definitely 5 stars! Would love to stay again.

Beautiful hotel and an amazing pool area, unmatched anywhere in the Islands.

Delays at front desk because of insufficient staff...so prepare to wait.

In our building, one of two elevators was out-of-service the entire 4 days we were there. There seemed to be a very slow pace set and accepted by management. Very unusual for a high qualify Marriott.
