Wonderful property. Our third visit at the Sheraton and our seventh to Kauai. Amazing food and service by ALL staff, but special gratitude to Micah at the front desk. He truly went above and beyond to accommodate us. Thank you, Micah!! You are amazing and we can’t wait to come back next year!!
Let me first start off by saying I personally work for a travel management company and the overall customer service to F&B to housekeeping was amazing! I’m a tough critic when it comes to writing reviews and the Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach did not disappoint. Intro: 10/10 I booked the Costco Travel deal because it included the room/tax, upgraded ocean view room, waived $32 resort fee, and a car rental. The upgraded ocean view was the most important to me because when you request room types at the front desk remember it’s a “request” not a guarantee. Check-In: 10/10 Upon arriving to the hotel, a young gentleman greeted us and unloaded our luggage along with our entire Costco purchase. I requested an early check-in via mobile app and when I got to the hotel guess what?! It wasn’t ready at 2pm… so instead of complaining I tipped the front desk agent $10 bucks let her know I wanted the 4th floor corner room and I’ll wait until check-in time. I headed to the bar near the pool had one drink and about 30 minutes later they called me saying the room was ready. Front desk authorized $300 for the security deposit which I thought was cheap compared to my hotel its $500. I called the Bell desk, and the same guy came to drop off our luggage about 10-minutes later. Housekeeping: 11/10 When I got to the room I did my own personal housekeeping inspection, and she exceeded all my expectations. I wish I remembered her name because we interacted almost daily since I usually decline housekeeping service, and I never had a problem getting anything I needed (friendly suggestion, please tip your housekeeper at the end of c/o these individuals literally go above and beyond to pick up after you). I stood in room 474 for about a week and let me tell you it had the perfect view of the pool and ocean. My husband and I ate at the restaurant almost daily for breakfast and dinner, and the food was delicious. One thing to note is the TV connection was terrible, nothing to major to complain about since I brought my own fire stick tv to stream shows and movies. Amenities: 10/10 We utilized almost all the amenities at the hotel and had no major complaints about the rental gear/bikes. We became friends quickly with the bell desk because we saw them every morning when we rented the beach gear which was a huge plus since it made our lounging by beach even better. Just a suggestion, I would rent your gear as early as possible in the morning to ensure you get what you wanted (i.e. beach chairs, beach mat & umbrella). Also, I forgot to mention I really appreciated the washer/dryer on my floor near the ice machine since my hiking clothes were so muddy. Construction: 10/10 I saw the construction going on but I never heard it, maybe it was because of where my room was located? Local Area/Things to do/Places to Eat: 10/10 -Costco: Stock up on your booze, H2O and snacks -Longs Drugs/CVS: Same parking lot as the hotel, they have everything you need. Stocked up on more snacks, sim card for my GoPro, and laundry detergent since my hiking gear was muddy. -Helicopter Tour w/Jurassic Falls -Scuba Diving -Luau (shout out to Uncle Willy) -Rented a Jeep: Drove North, South, East, West -Restaurants within walking distance or quick bike ride: Monicos Taqueria (taquitos were fire), McDonalds (barf), Pono Market (bomb pork/poke great for lunch), Hukilau Lanai (great for dinner), coconut marketplace (shopping/farmers market).…
Our 3rd time staying here. They upgraded the girl and the grounds. The AC was a work in progress. We would go again. Front desk was accommodating. Lots of restaurants close by l. Tip car rental was not available but Turo is ok.
I got food poisoning at this hotel and was sick for 4 days and the manager would never even speak with me or help in any way. The housekeeping staff did their best and were very nice. According to UBER driver, they hire people last minute for busy times and do not train staff properly in food handling. Would avoid this hotel at all costs, as very poorly managed.
Book the ocean front rooms if you can. Great hospitality and service from Michael!! He was very helpful with suggestions and help with transportation. Service at the restaurant was a little slow due to staffing but the staff on duty really hustled.
