We have had a timeshare here since 1995 and just love it. We come every year. The grounds and view are beautiful. Rooms are very nice. Good service. It is located close to everything. We love Dukes restaurant, Cafe Portofino and Kalapaki Grill.

This place has a lot going for it. Friendly staff, close to the airport, but not too close, Great pools and an OK gym. But if you want to eat off the resort, you have to get your car out. The beach is beautiful, but not for swimming. If you have never been to Kauai, get ready for chickens. They... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights to attend a wedding and was not disappointed. Location: Within minutes from the airport (6 miles) and extremely close to town for restaurants and local grocery stores. Parking: You can either valet or park yourself. I didn't valet and even if there wasn't a spot close to the entrance, you'll end up... More

Beautiful property and room. Enjoyed relaxing here at the end of the day. Centrally located if you plan on exploring the island and going to a different location each day. Furthest drives will be about an hour and a half to destination, but you will have this no matter where you stay, depending on your home base. If you are... More

We visited this resort in Summer time. It has a beach and bunch of pools and slides for kids and kiddy pool. We tried their breakfast the first morning and it was good. Room was clean and comfortable. Concierge was very helpful. They have a complimentary Valet parking which was nice. They had resort activities as well which residents can... More

Hotel is very run down. Reception is particularly snobby and difficult! Not what one would expect at a "resort." Beach is dirty and too dangerous to swim. On the positive side: Pool is nice; cleaning staff/restaurant staff are pleasant.

Pros: Housekeeping does a great job cleaning and organizing the room. Toiletries are restocked daily. DVD and game rental. Grounds are kept clean. Hotel staff are polite and courteous. Cons: PAPER THIN WALLS. You can hear people's conversation in the hallway as they walk by. You'll hear the occupants next door. You'll hear the guest in their rooms as you... More

We expected more on the arrival to be welcomed after our long journey from England, it was disappointing to say the least. A welcomed drink would have been nice and a happier receptionist! Our room was average, nothing special. Clean and just enough storage for three people. Around the pool was lovely apart from a lack of shade, more unbrellas... More

We stayed at the Kauai beach resort for 4 days in the month of August 2016. The resort is really nice. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. It was pretty noisy in the rooms though. You could hear your neighbours if they were speaking loudly and you could hear everyone in the corridor outside your room. Also if the... More
