I simply have to respond to the few people who post negative reviews of this property due to its not being a huge, overdone, glitzy resort. First, each person's definition of 5-star is different so I understand if you consider that type of place the ultimate in luxury and comfort and alone worthy of a 5-star rating. However, it is extremely clear from the numerous detailed reviews that Koa Kea is a small, intimate resort boasting understated elegance and exemplary service. If you choose to stay here expecting Disneyland on the Pacific you are bound to be disappointed (but really have nobody to blame but yourself because all the information is here to make an educated decision).
Having said that, I have just returned from my third glorious stay here and am happy to say it just gets better and better. Our oceanfront room was lovely as always, immaculately clean with first-class amenities. A noisy air conditioner was fixed immediately.
Breakfast is delicious and if you are a breakfast eater I highly recommend choosing the package with it included. It is well worth it -- my husband tries one of everything and I get consistently perfect poached eggs (which are difficult to do).
I had a wonderful massage at the spa. Again, not a re-creation of a Grecian bath, just a nice, comfortable, quiet spa with an exceptional massage therapist.
The pool and bar are perfect for adults -- serene atmosphere, comfy lounges and great drinks! You can swim and snorkel steps away in front of the hotel or a little further walk at Poipu beach.
Every single member of the staff is kind, courteous, helpful and happy. True Hawaiian hospitality.
I hope this review helps each vacationer choose the property that meets their individual desires and expectations. If you value service and luxury in an understated intimate environment, Koa Kea is it.
