Stayed one week at this hotel with wife and two kids age 9 and 6. Everyone enjoyed the hotel and especially the pool - a big flower-shaped pool with 4 ft depth, 5 adjacent hot tubs, and 5 animal-themed fountains. In the middle is an island for lounging accessible by a bridge. Spectacular setting in the Kalapaki Bay with mountain ridge overlooking. There's also a kiddie pool and water slide. Waitresses roam the pool to bring you food and drink. Also lounge on the lawn or beach on the bay and watch the surfers and paddle boards (or rent for yourself). Hotel towers look like 60's architecture but rooms are modern. Not just a family hotel - other hotel guests were young newlyweds, retirees, and intl travelers - but there is no adult-only pool.
When you get tired of the overpriced hotel food, there are other restaurants in the mall across the street and an ABC store for sundry items. Not much in Lihue but rent a car and drive southwest to Poipu/Waimea one day and north to Princeville/Hanalei another. Enterprise rental office is onsite at the hotel. You can decide by 9:30am each day if you want to keep the car for another day.
