My wife and I stayed at the Granvrio for our first 3 nights and then came down to the Kanoa for our last 4 nights, and boy was that the right choice! The Granvrio is in Garapan and has a great location, but Kanoa blows it out of the water! The pool has two free water slides, and I'm not... More

We have stayed here twice, which I thought I had reviewed the place.... The reviews about the hard beds are accurate, but we like a firm mattress so it was no problem.

Two types of rooms: standard and tower deluxe - stayed both due to booking sites unavailability. Room sizes were OK but the cleaning status was not perfect. Could find trashes under the bed.

I spent a week at Kanoa, the firmest most back and neck aching week ever. The resort itself is decent. The lobby is spacious and the beach is ok.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Leisure.Comfort.Kanoa Nestled on Saipan's finest stretch of white, sandy beach, the Kanoa Resort Saipan offers the best of both worlds with a comfortable, tropical ambience that transports the soul to pure relaxation, yet equally stimulates with its proximity to the area's vibrant shopping and entertainment. Beautiful surroundings combined with a friendly 'Hafa Adai' service have made Kanoa Resort Saipan a truly unique resort hotel with local flavor and hospitality. All 224 guest rooms offer pleasing comfort and most feature breathtaking ocean views, bringing glimpses of sea and sand. Décor is warm yet refined, naturally complementing the setting. Rooms in the Emerald Tower offer a spacious setting, with one of the largest room sizes on island. Located just steps from the beach, two pools span half the length of the hotel and boasts rich blue "lagoon-like" waters and numerous relaxing lounges. The festive-hued waterslides also add a spark of fun and excitement to the landscape. The resort's gorgeous beachfront is continually regarded as one of Saipan's best and is lined with colorful umbrellas along the sand. Various dining options include the Isla Cafe & Terrace and the oceanfront Barefoot Beach BBQ with a tropical island show featuring local dancers performing traditional and Polynesian dances. The hotel's 330 square meters of meeting and function space can accommodate groups up to 200 guests and offers numerous function capabilities. This area is conveniently located in its own section of the resort. Children may enjoy fun in the sun at the resort's Kids Fun Zone. Activities include a poolside playroom, bouncy house, and interactive games. ... more   less
