Talk about great service!! This place meets so many of our sweet spots. They greet you by name. When we asked for anything, they accommodated us--even providing boxes, tape and scissors to send things home...and then they shipped it for us. The housekeeping was top notch too, with even considerate things like getting us ice and turning on music for... More

Just returned yesterday after a 4-night stay here. This hotel is obviously a renovated motel. We upgraded to an oceanfront room and are so glad that we did. The views of the surfers in the morning and evening were fun to watch, as were the sunsets. The pool is nice, but the temperature was quite warm, so not very refreshing.... More

We stayed at Koa Kea for 3 nights in August 2016 and it has been a wonderful experience. We reached Kauai at 10 in the morning and called the Koa Kea reception to enquire about an early checkin. When we arrived there around 11am the room was ready for us! The staff was attentive and very helpful. The valets were... More

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights on our honeymoon: 1. Perfect little luxury hotel for couples. Very expensive, but that's what filters out the noisy families. This spot is beautiful, classy, exotic. 2. They are not the most friendly hotel ever, but there are two sides to that coin - it offers couples the quiet seclusion that... More

We stayed here for part of our trip, which included Oahu and the Big Island. As our final stop, we were looking for a laid-back, adults-oriented resort. Bingo!! It was just what we were looking for. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We received complimentary champagne due to our special occasion. There are 2 big beaches adjacent to the... More

Shrimp, crab cakes in porcelain compartments - flavorful and light mango, ginger, wasabi reduction sauces. Delicious! Also crispy-edged won tons. First class. And quite the best Mai tai out of four different places. Very very nice staff there at Koa Kea.

We stayed at the resort Aug 21-25, having just stayed at the St. Regis in Princeville. Both my husband and I actually preferred the Koa Kea (in Poipu), in terms of service and location. Princeville is stunning, but it is pretty isolated and has a bit more rain. The Koa Kea is a boutique hotel, but does not skimp on... More

First the good - best valet staff ever. Fast, friendly, genuinely interested in their level of service. Thanks guys! Location is certainly good, beach was pretty nice if not the best for swimming. Nespresso machine was nice to have. I actually liked the partial ocean view because the balcony was much more private. Many ocean view rooms overlook the pool... More

We spent five days in a beautiful hotel, really recommended. We found good privacy, relax and kindness. Beautiful pool garden with umbrellas and sun beds and just some steps to find the amazing beach of Poipu. Exiting sunsets with a cocktail were a must in the evening. Just some notes about breakfast, really under expectations, and housekeeping, can be improved.... More
