Well it's been a couple of years since I visited the Hyatt Regency, but since I was reading other reviews for another trip I'm planning I decided to throw my two cents in.
My wife and I stayed in an Ocean view room in June of 2003 on our honeymoon. It was our first time to Hawaii and we loved it. We love how Kauai isn't as built up as the other islands. The resort was fabulous. We didn't have any problems with service or bugs or anything. The place is big and you do have to walk some, but if you can't handle a little walking just stay home and pout. Some of these people writing reviews would complain about anything. This place was perfect and I'd definately stay there again if I could ever afford it again. It is very pricey, but it was our honeymoon so who cares.
The breakfast at the hotel is very good and has a very large selection. I think it was pretty pricey, but it was included with our room so we didn't have to worry about it. You must get an ocean view room. There isn't anything better than waking up and seeing that view. The beach the property is located on is has very rough waves and I wouldn't recommend swimming in it too much. The man made beach is ok, but isn't really anything great. We didn't waste our time there. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful with lots of flowers and trees.
We like to do active things so we snorkeled a lot at Ke'e beach and did the long hiking trail that starts there. That has some great views. I wish we had time to do the whole trail. I think we went 2 miles in where there was a beach that had a pretty neat cave. We were pretty tired after that and it was getting hot. You better get there early to get a parking spot if you want to snorkel or hike there. We also took a kayaking tour up to a waterfall that was very neat. We had a guide that was very educated in all the flowers and trees, which I'm not all that interested in, but she made it interesting. We also took a boat tour around NaPali Coast and snorkeled and got to see some turtles. There is just a lot of things to do if you like to get out and do them. We aren't into all the shows and flash that the other islands may have so if you are you may want to go there.
Anyways, I hope that helped somebody. I can't remember every detail or spelling since it was 2 years ago, but it was an awesome trip.
