“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We just returned from 9 nights at this resort (on hyatt points) and as someone who's spent over 300 nights in the past 2 years this is the probably the nicest hotel I've been able to stay in. The service is great, the best I've seen at a hyatt including the park hyatt i've stayed at. The pool and grounds are fantastic, the only drawback might be the beach is not fit for swimming, but they have a saltwater lagoon available.

We had dinner on my birthday at the tidepools and it was absolutely fantastic, don't miss that fabulous chocolate desert! As a Hyatt Diamond member we had access to the club lounge which had a fantastic breakfast and treats throughout the day, In the evening they had a great salad and some sort of finger food all of which were very good. As in a number of the Hyatt's I stay in, dinner is really not needed. We attended the luau, which because of Rain was indoors. Honestly, I've been to another one on the island which I thought was better but the food was great and if you wanted to lose your mind on maitais you certainly could. The show was good, but as I say I think the other one is better.

Our room was on the pool and it might have been nice to be on an upper floor but that's a trade off between convenience and the grander ocean view. One point I would make is that I thought the beds were a bit too soft, but that's perhaps a personal taste.

Overall, this hotel is great and I'm giving it an enthusiastic thumbs up! Booking again for 2015

There is nothing wrong I can say about this resort. They have got everything taken care of for you. Beautiful comfortable room. Great, friendly service. Amazing and fun pool. Beautiful beach front. You will do nothing but relax here. The Spa is fantastic. My husband and I had a couples massage in the outdoor cabanas. I highly recommend it. It was beyond relaxing to feel the fresh hawaiian breezes and listen to the waterfalls as your being massaged.The food at all venues was great. Already planning our next vacation here!

This was the second hotel in our Tauck tour of Hawaii. Gorgeous! Very comfortable beds, beautiful property! Very clean and the staff was very friendly. If you can't walk far distances, be sure and ask for closer rooms, Because the property is so spread out and you may have to walk a distance to and from your room to other parts of the hotel. Nice pools laid out amongst the gorgeous landscaping.

We just got back from Kauai and LOVED this Hyatt property. The grounds are INCREDIBLE, as were the pools, rooms and service. Plenty of activities for everyone- you will not be bored here! The ONLY negative (and I am digging here) is that although the beach that fronts the property is pretty - it is not suitable for children or any novice swimmers for that matter - very rough currents big waves and a rock bottom make for potential disasters. They are NOT kidding when they tell you this beach should only be used by surfers and boogie boarders- we saw SEVERAL GROWN MEN (ahem) with slings and abrasions who failed to enjoy the beach. This is a large property so you do not feel crowded when they are full. No fights for pool chairs, towels and no nickel and diming for the extra's - like bottled water (2 bottles each day are free for guests). If you go to Kauai in the Winter months, do NOT stay north or you will likely get rained out- A LOT- stay down south at the Hyatt and have a wonderful and relaxing SUNNY time!

The staff at the hotel were always very friendly. They greeted my husband and I with leis. Room service was quick and precise. It was clean, family friendly and located in a beautiful area of the island. Particular things we loved... The departure lounge was a huge help as we didn't leave the island til 11:00pm so we were able to play on the beach and at the pools all day, then being able to shower before our long plane ride home. We loved the scents of the shampoo, conditioner and lotion... It was really good quality. The llima breakfast buffet has a big choice of foods that were quality.
The only negatives we found at this hotel.. The pool was pretty cold. It wasn't even fun to swim in most of the time unless it was super hot outside. Also, the beach front it's located on is pretty rough and little kids aren't safe to swim there at the hotel. The prices of the food at the hotel are outrageous which I guess is to be expected at a nice Hawaiian hotel. We had a wonderful time at the grand Hyatt and would go back for sure if we go to kauai again. We had a pleasant experience overall.

What a gorgeous resort! The service was awesome...staff was friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet every morning with tons to choose from. Greek yogurt with granola and pineapple...delicious! We attended the Luau one evening that was spectacular! It rained a ton on the island so they had to have the Luau indoors, but that didn't stop the fire dancer! The show was incredible! Hula girls were so fun to watch! The resort had cute shops with lots of variety.

We played a few holes on the PGA golf course, took advantage of the tennis courts that came along with the resort fee, laid by the pool and slid down the giant water slide at least 20 times. Great hotel!

Room Tip: Splurge for the ocean view room.
