No, unfortunately there are no safes in the rooms. You can however give the front desk staff things you'd like to keep secure.

It's the beach at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club hotel. Ya, it's swimmable. And the hotel is about 1/3 price of the Marriott. It's my go to place when I'm in Kauai on business each year.

The flooding was on the other side of the island. The hotel is good to go, and still easy to get to, as it's near the airport.
