The staff was great. Seemed genuinely happy. From the front desk to the people in the restaurant. I like to be surrounded by happy people. Very refreshing, With all the tourists, I don't know how they do it.

The location was perfect for our trip because we were doing a little something in all areas of the island so it was a good halfway point. The hotel is beautiful, rooms were nice and clean. My only complaint would be the shower head was awful in our room but it was a very small annoyance. We used the laundry room too and it was convenient to our room. The restaurant was great, loved that it was on the beach, we ate there several times during our stay and all meals were good. The beach was convenient and the ocean was fun to play with waves, not good for kiddos though. Many stores and restaurants very close to hotel, some even within walking distance. Everyone we encountered was super friendly as well. Parking spaces were tiny but fine and they have free valet available. Definitely would stay here again!

The location of Kauai Shores is great! The staff is friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the beach provided the perfect place for amazing sunrise views every morning. Don't worry, the roosters will wake you in time to see it! In the evening, we watched the surfers catch waves. The restaurant on site has music in the afternoon and evening until 9:00. The food and drinks are a little pricey, but convenient. There are games on the lawn and morning yoga, and bikes to use on the trail that runs along the coast. Using the valet service is recommended, as the parking stalls for the hotel and restaurant are very small. Plus, the attendants are friendly and have tips on things to do and see around the island. We had a wonderful experience at Kauai Shores and I would love to stay here again!

This hotel was wonderful. It's location is perfect. We had a late flight and the receptionist was so very helpful. We took full advantage of the morning yoga and free bikes. We ate at Lava Lava twice. The rooms are very clean and the staff is so helpful. The value is great. If I had to pick something to upgrade I would say our mattress was a little lifeless. I would 100% book here again without hesitation.

Rate this a 5 out of 5- such a wonderful place, super nice staff, great location and fun game nights-we miss it already!! Great music and drinks at the LLBC, too. East shore location was very convenient for heading north or south for all kinds of day activities.

A cute, clean, quiet place to stay, right on the beach, centrally located. Friendly and responsive staff. We celebrated our 30th anniversary there and loved every minute. Be sure to visit the Coconut Marketplace right nextdoor (shops, restaurants, etc.) Would definitely recommend and go back!

We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the hotel as our resting place. Having a kitchen was nice, we liked the bike rental, and the pool was never too crowded. There aren’t too many quiet rooms on the property, but luckily it isn’t loud too late. Nothing was wrong with the stay, it just did not rise to a five star hotel.
