This is our family's first time to visit Kauai, HI. My brother-in-law booked this property because there were 10 of us traveling Kauai. When we first arrived at the property, our GPS indicated that we have arrived but we couldn't find the property. It turns out the property consists of Marriott Beach Resorts and Spa, the Golf Course and the Marriott's Kauai Lagoon. It's a very HUGE property indeed. After asking the valet at the Beach Resort, he directed us to continue to follow the road until it ends and sure enough, we found the place. Our first impression of Marriott Kauai Lagoon was a typical Courtyard by Marriott or Residences by Marriott. However, after we checked in, to my surprise....it's more like the Ritz Carlton Residences. My bro-in-law reserved the three bedroom villa and it was very spacious for a family of 10. They have high quality furnitures, well equipped kitchen, LCD TV in all three bedrooms, all rooms have its own bath or full bath, all king beds, spacious closet, two out of the three bedrooms have a GREAT VIEW of the ocean/beach/mountain. WONDERFUL terrace with plenty of seatings for dining out in the terrace or for just lounging on the terrace. AMAZING view from the terrace. One day we even saw a cruise ship disembarking the nearby port. The villa is also equipped with laundry room. Had we knew it earlier, we wouldn't have packed so many clothing!
The facility at Kauai Lagoon also included a well equipped gym and activity room next to the gym. The gym has a GREAT view as well and the equipments were well maintained and most looked brand new. The activity room is equipped with a Wii System, a projector and screen, with atleast 6 speakers, fooseball table, sectional sofas and a desktop computer. Also, they have a kid friendly pool and barbecue areas in which their staff cleans it every day!
All in all this facility is a great facility, well maintained and beautiful. I would definitely come back to this facility if we plan to visit Kauai again. Don't be fooled by the close proximity to Lihue Airport. You don't hear the jet at all when staying at this resort. You do hear the helicopters buzzing by every few minutes but all those are silenced by the wonderful property, AMAZING views and great company!
Thanks Marriott Kauai Lagoons for a very pleasant vacation!! To all the staffs...a job well done for keeping the facility as beautiful as it is and being friendly and pleasant at the same time!!!
