Fabulous view of the entrance to the bay and the volcanic hills on the other side! Top quality unit with a large lanaii (sp?) ( porch) much larger than others we have stayed in. On the "be cautious" side... although the welcoming documents state Marriott Kauai Lagoons... this description does not appear anywhere on any signs.. Instead, the key word... More

It's hard to not have a beautiful location in Hawaii and this property does not disappoint with some of its views but that's where the positives end for this place. First off this is a timeshare property and I traded to get here from the mainland. There's a few things you need to know about the property. First, if you... More

Thank you for your feedback, Gordon. As we are a Vacation Club, we do not operate as a normal Marriott hotel.

We truly enjoyed our two bedroom, two bath condo with a view of the Pacific and the mountains. Marriott has thought of everything. If you think you need it, it is already there; Fully equipped kitchen, luxurious bedding, large bathrooms with island scented toiletries, comfortable lanai furniture-we ate outdoors most meals. We took full advantage of the resort activities and... More

The proximity of the pool to the timeshare units is great as we had a handicapped individual with us. The parking right outside your door is also a plus. Views of the Ocean and the golf course , depending on location of your room, are stunning. The yoga/ water aerobics instructor was wonderful. Usually stay @ the beach club and... More

A great place to stay to completely relax. Room and view of the ocean were exactly what we needed. The pool was a great place to relax and get a little sun. Staff kept the grounds, pool & grills(used them & fire pit a couple of times) immaculate. Our time there went by way too quickly.
