We got two adjoining rooms (one of my wife an I, and one for our kids). The location and grounds for this resort on the east side of Kauai are amazing!!! It's only about 5-10 minutes from the Lihue airport, and the resort offers a free airport and Kaapa shopping shuttle if you don't get a rental car for your... More

We had a very enjoyable time at this resort. When we arrived, I requested a change from a mountain view room to an ocean or partial ocean view which was granted. All of our interactions with the staff (front desk, restaurants, pool, bar) were all good. With pools, it is a nice place for families to go. The actual beach... More

My husband and 2 teenaged kids were with us on this vacation. This was our 4th stay at this hotel in the last 15 years, it was under different management the first 2 times. I booked a mountain/garden room in January, 7 months ago. it was for 7 nights, which I had done all previous bookings. When we checked in... More

We stayed at Kauai Beach Resort for 7 wonderful nights. The staff was remarkable. The place is gorgeous and the beach views are beautiful. I would return here anytime. The restaurant is good and not terribly expensive compared to other restaurants on the island. Our experience here was amazing!

Dirty room at check in, switched to a musty room, front desk basically told me to "deal" with it and would not upgrade me. It was late and surely no more guests would be checking in that night and they had rooms. The staff was supposed to move our belongings to the third room I was sent to, but failed... More

If you have children, this is the place to take your kids. I think it is more kid oriented, than adults. Most of the numerous pools only stand at 3 feet deep. This is why I say it is a resort designed only for families. If you are a couple looking for romance. . . find a quiet beach, perhaps.... More

It's hard to beat the location, amenities and value of the Kauai Beach Resort. I have seen a few somewhat negative reviews based on the condition of the resort, but blame that more on parents who let their children run wild -- it can be hard for staff to keep up with damage to landscape, etc. (I kindly asked some...

This was a great family location close to the airport. The shuttle was fast she picked us up in five minutes after we called. The pools were amazing with the waterfalls, the kids swam for hours! We lived the staff at the outdoor bar and all the food we tried was really good. The breakfast buffet is with the price... More

We spent 4 night here, the grounds are beautiful but the rooms could use to be updated. We had an ocean view room, nice but not great. The entire staff was great, check in was easy and the valet service is quick. Breakfast was fine but there are many better diner options nearby. The pool bar was nice and the... More
