We had a great stay at the Kauai Lagoons. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The lanais were big and provided a great place to relax day or night. The lanai doors open up the entire span of the doorway and this made it feel more like an open-air room rather than a clostrophobic balcony in other places we have stayed.
The rooms had all you could ask for from a walk-in closet in the master bedroom to the "soft" close drawers and cabinets. Everything was up-to-date and show no sign of wear & tear. There was plenty of places to store things - so much storage I actually did not see my luggage from the moment we unpacked.
The pool was nice for us and our toddler to enjoy but we decided to venture out to the many beaches on the island. There are shallow sections for the young ones to play in and a small slide. There is a 3 mile walk/run path on the property for those who fancy a jog, run, or walk.
The only recommendation we made to the staff was for them to look into adding a playground for the children onsite. This would help keep them busy outside of the pool.
Proximity to the airport was not a bother for us and at times you forget that you are close to it.
Positives - Many. The staff were ultra friendly. The location and grounds were nice. The bed was very comfortable and I found the whole place quite relaxing.
Negatives - Leaving....I did not want to leave this place and look forward to returning.
