“You gotta stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Staff are unbelievable!
Options for dining are good.
Rooms in the main tower (where check in is - FABULOUS. Especially facing the ocean).
You need a car at this location - cannot easily walk anywhere.
No swimming directly out front but the pools are nice (but very, very cold?)
Views are fabulous. truly.
Rooms are comfortable and clean.
Service around the pool and at the pool lounge is GREAT.
Service in the hotel lounge/resaurant is GREAT. Entertainment is awesome.
We will be back and recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Main tower - facing ocean. Superb!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

The weather, when we arrived, was very windy and cool. We found it was only really windy on that side of the island. It was a change of pace from the busy island of Oahu and the resort was beautiful. One of the hot tubs was broke so you had to wait in line to get in the other one. The room was a little musty and the pillows were flat but otherwise the room was excellent. The staff was ready to help at a moments notice. The free shuttle to the airport and free Wi-Fi in the lobby was a very nice touch not seen anywhere else. If you don't have a rental you are screwed. Nobody delivers food and you are in the middle of nowhere. The resort did have good deals with on-sight rentals.

I had a very enjoyable spring get away from Seattle's rain. I can't complain about anything here. We had problems with internet connection and they gave it to us for free. The staff are so very friendly and helpful. I loved having the valet service-worth every penny! : ) As a previous reviewer commented on the weather, yes, the south island is a different experience entirely if you need to escape rain. I personally loved the north island the most-(Hanalei). The resort offers good food, a great jewelry shop of items that are reasonably priced and hand made by a local artisan. They have a reasonable workout area, executive center, and other souvenir shop that has some essentials if needed. Although we did not get to use their spa, it would be something I may do on a return trip. Yes, I would stay here again, in a heartbeat. I loved our room overlooking their beautifully landscaped lagoon, and we had views of the mountains in the back and a sliver of the ocean in sight as well. We had weather that was cooperative April 8-14. You will love their staff, their location-(super convenient), and their grounds. I own a vacation club membership, and found this resort outside of our club, very much to my delight, the rates are so reasonable! : ) The only are of improvement that I could see was that the rooms need some redecorating-some weather/water damage on the wall covering behind the wooden window shutters that cover the lanai sliding doors. But that is about it, all the comforts otherwise.

Room Tip: I would try to get a lagoon view with the a partial ocean view. Great value and variety.

This place was so nice to arrive to. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The Expedia expert was amazing as our travel agent screwed up a booking and she tried to fix it. Pools were lovely and the room was nice also. It's close to lots and is right on the beach

Love Kauai for the layer back living. One thing to mention is how abstract the weather is from one side of the island to the other. If your feeling done with the rain and lush vegetation, head feast toward the for HOT HOT weather and NO RAIN. totally abstract to the rest of the island. Kauai beach resort is very clean and great value. Don't be scared by the value. It really is a nice place and centrally located. Enjoy.

The hotel is really a 2.75 Star. Staff is excellent but ... Liue is not the best location for good weather. The south at Poipu or north to Princeville has more sun and warmer temps. The hotel - Kauai Beach Resort - is dated,even though the reviews say it was remodeled in 2007 - that was 8 years ago. (Most hotels are remodeled every 7 years.)
The cost is less here and the bar food is good. Rent a car at the airport and see the island, visit other beaches during the day and enjoy the fact you are saving a little while enjoying Kauai.

Stayed there for four nights. It's centrally located between north and south coasts, and is close to the airport. Staff were very friendly, rooms were great, pool areas were nice & relaxing, breakfast was yummy.
One night there were blackouts, but the staff were super helpful & nice. They upgraded our room and allowed us a very late checkout on our last night so we could relax before our red eye flight.
The prices are very reasonable, especially on Priceline. It's not the fanciest place in the world, but it's everything we needed and more.
