If you're going to Kauai, you'll want to stay here. Book the room, then come back and finish the review. Go ahead, I'll wait...
Ko'a Kea is what you hope for from every hotel. Calm and quiet, very clean, modern and sophisticated. They do room service in the morning and turn-down service in the evening. Every night my new wife and I came back to a room with the radio on quietly playing Hawaiian music and a fresh bottle of water chilling on ice. Because it was our honeymoon, they even sent a bottle of champagne to us on our first night with a little card. Do I need to say more?
The location of the hotel is really ideal; it's a 2-minute walk to the famous (and kid-friendly (and good snorkeling)) Poipu beach. The fact that it's not ON said beach is what makes the difference though. You can relax on the hotel lawn that faces the ocean and not hear kids screaming and parents screaming at their kids to stop screaming...
Finally, the Red Salt restaurant in the hotel is amazing. If you can get a deal with breakfast everyday, there's no reason to eat anywhere else. Also, they've got sushi nights in the lobby from Tuesday through... Friday?... I'd highly recommend that as well. That was the best night we spent there.
