A beautiful resort with amazing location and views. Had a great stay and relaxing vacation there, the only thing we were disappointed in- was the Pools are not heated at all! Couldn’t use the pool because they were too cold unfortunately. I guess they don’t heat them . Despite that, we had a wonderful time there.

Hotel's Favorite
We recently stayed at the Grand Hyatt for 6 days and 5 nights on our trip to Kauai and it was one of the nicer experiences we had ever had at a hotel. First off, we typically only use the hotel during our vacation as a place to rest but this was truly a resort in which I felt we should have stayed on the property more and simply relaxed. First, a quick summary of the property: It is HUGE. We had access to the Grand Club, which we used frequently but our room was on the other side of the resort. I feel we got our 10k steps in just by going to the club a couple times a day! Valet was speedy and efficient. Check in was very pleasant and we actually arrived earlier than standard check in (4PM). We asked for both an upgrade and/or early check in. Unfortunately the hotel was booked so no upgrade and our room wasn't quite ready but they gave us a key to access the Grand Club as well as four drink vouchers to use around the pool.. Of course, we had 2 boys, so the wife and I took their drink tickets and then bought their drinks in cash separately! Once we got to our room, even though it was a standard room, it actually was quite spacious with a large bathroom and a balcony. In addition, once nice tough that I don't see often enough, especially with hotels with a nice pool or beach access - a clothes line that spanned the space above the tub so we could hang out suits to dry. Pool/beach wise, there are so many pools and access to the beach that I never felt it was too crowded. The main pool areas would be the saltwater lagoon, which is pretty large and where our boys spend the majority of there time. There's a main pool with 2 jacuzzis easily accessible. There is a lazy river, which was VERY lazy in the sense that I felt like it barely moved. A water slide, where people of all ages enjoyed it immensely. Protip - it closes at 6PM but basically between 5-6pm there is no wait. And also access to Shipwreck Beach which has a pretty strong rip tide so I would say you should be careful but it was fun for the boys to play on the beach and have the waves splash them. All the pools were also services by an excellent wait staff for both food and drinks. There are a few options to eat and drink on property and initially I didn't think we took advantage but in writing out trip review, it turns out that we pretty much tried everywhere once. At Stevenson's we were told there were known for their Martini's so the wife ordered one. I opted for a flight of whiskey. She thought the martini was decent but not spectacular. For my flight, they were out of one of the three so they gave me extra of the other two. The vibe itself was great, not too loud, and if you were fortunate, I felt like a seat on the outdoor balcony/patio would have been great. We didn't order any food but the menu certainly looked appetizing. For Tidepool, we ended up heading over and planned to order drinks at the bar and grab an open seat if one became available. It wasn't packed but there weren't any seats initially but after getting our drinks, a couple seats at the bar opened up. We then ordered another round plus a scallop appetizer, which was very tasty. I would like to add that several folks we had talked to mentioned Tidepool to eat at (both from the helicopter tour and tubing) even though they didn't know where we are staying. As mentioned, we also ate at Seaview Terrace for dinner as a family one night and to be honest, for a fancy hotel, the food was surprisingly reasonably priced and very tasty (this is part of my comment about I thought the food was comparable to Beach House but maybe a third of the cost? Granted, you don't get the selection of fresh fish but I'm talking just about how we enjoyed our food). My wife ordered the lobster roll and she really enjoyed it. And this in addition to live music, which I believe is every evening. A very nice and relaxing way to wind the day down. We did order food when we were at the pool and in addition to the standard pool type food (chicken tenders, hot dogs, etc), they also had a few choices that had the hawaiian flair. We tried both a poke bowl and the kalua nachos and both were very good. Note that we ordered food through one of the waitstaff as we reserved a bungalow for the day we spent at the pool and the service was great. I would like to mention that when we were at the pool and not at the bungalow, we received equally great service for the team in taking our orders. The day we left, because it was a noon flight and 5 hours, I was afraid the boys would get hungry so I did take them to the breakfast buffet at Ilima Terrace. I found the pricing to be very interesting as it was $41 for adults but the cost for the kids was $1/per year which meant $8 and $10 for us. I found that was incredibly flexible because buffets are typically wasted on kids. There was a huge omelet station which I found interesting as typically at buffets, there's always a huge line but when we went, I was always the first or second one in line. The buffet had a decent variety and also some interesting fresh juice combinations. There is also a Luau on site which we did not partake in that occurs I believe on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Pro-tip, it seems you can basically watch the show for free from the edge of the grass. I don't think most people would stay for the whole thing but I saw plenty of families watch for 5 or so minutes and move on. Great way to advertise! I mentioned the Grand Club and it was a very solid option, particularly for families in which the breakfast was more than acceptable and a great way to start off the day. They had afternoon snack, then a light dinner as well, followed by a dessert hour. The menu has one main item that changes daily so it does mix it up a bit. The staff was very friendly and must have consistently worked there because I saw a few times where they greeted guests from previous visits. Also, the a/c was on and a great place to cool down, although in the morning/evening, the outdoor seating was quite pleasant. All in all, would we go back? I feel like it is best summarized by the discussion my wife and I had about Kauai in general. Did we have a good time and would we go back to Kauai? And the answer is yes, it was fun and yes we would go back. However, it wasn't so exciting that we wouldn't mind visiting other places before making our way back. And the fact that we were at a VERY nice hotel had a big impact and would be a factor on if we came back or not.

Wonderful staff and facilities! Great for kids and adults alike. Lei making was a lot of fun at the cultural center. The pool water was initially chilly but was fine after going in. Water slide was perfect for my 6 year old.

Stayed here for 6 nights during President’s Day week with my husband and our two kids. The resort is great. Gorgeous, well maintained grounds, very clean room with awesome daily housekeeping, great food options onsite and great location- hiking trails next to the resort, caves and private breaches to explore next to resort, next to Poipu beach for great snorkeling and see turtle viewing, tons of restaurants and shopping onsite and near by at old town Koloa and the newer shopping centers down the road. The pools are fabulous, we loved the huge slide, the many wandering pools and the giant salt water lagoon. Fantastic food and drink service poolside. I loved the coffee shop onsite where you can order from your phone, that was a bonus. Loved the easy parking at the self parking lot. Loved the room key wristbands. Highly recommend. Only areas I noted for improvement- better pricing at the spa, a manicure was $100 (so I passed on spa services), be prepared to spend $200 a day on resort taxes and fees, pricing on food/ cocktails was reasonable, but they didn’t have a traditional pina colada- the only one offered was made with ice cream, which was a huge bummer since it’s Hawaii- all ladies want a pina coloda on their island vacation, but definitely not with ice cream that’s gross, ended up having skinny margaritas and Kona beers. That’s it, those are really the only complaints I have for the whole resort, honestly this is a great resort, highly recommend, lived up to the hype. Everyone in family had a great time. Thank you!

Beautiful location and grounds but this is where it ends. Absolutely not a 5 star hotel as advertised. Coffee maker was broken, had to ask housing to replace toilet paper (!), shampoo, body wash, change our sheets etc several times during the stay. Mold on the bathroom ceiling. Broken tile in the bathroom. The room was worn out. Reserved a room with a partial ocean view, so we could hear the ocean, however every night there was loud music playing on the main terrace, one night, there were two competing bands near each other on the grounds! Staff doesn't care about non smoking policies/laws. We had someone smoke on the balcony next to us several nights in a row, called in to complain, were told that they'll send out security. Nothing changed. People still smoking. Couldn't enjoy our balcony due to people smoking on the grounds and loud music. Also people vaping, smoking cigars by the beach and cigarettes on the parking lot. Multiple cigarettes butts by the pools. Also housekeeping threw away my sons' medicine! Hotel did find it later and apologized with a gift basket. But I still , DO NOT RECOMMEND, overpriced, poor service, old rooms, multiple people smoking on the premises.
