I've never noticed mozzies around the hotel, pool or beach, but I can't speak for the golf course.

Which Marriot are you speaking of. The Waiohai, or the Marriot in Lihue.

Probaby does not make much difference, we go to kalapaki beach, as well as dukes canoe club, and have not notices any mosquitos.

Same for the Waiohai. Seems like the resorts do a heck of good job in their pest control.

in fact, we seldom ever get a mosquito bite, and generally that will be very infrequent on our hiking trials. Usually, if I do get bitten, the itching calms down very quickly, and has not been a problem like the no-seeums in the caribbean.

No worries....you should be just fine.

11 of us there Christmas week- zero bites.

I had a bottle of spray from home, just in case. Didn't need it.

Buy some chicken spray, however :^)

This subject always puzzles me when it comes up. Can honestly say I've never had an issue with mosquitoes, in over 35 years, of travelling to Kauai. Maybe if I spent more time up in the wet and thickly forested areas I might. But along the coastal areas, with the stiff trade winds, no. It's just never been an issue for me or those I'm with.

We've never noticed mosquito's in Kauai either. Probably because we stick to the areas along the coast. Now, put me at my grandparents home in Minn. and I am covered with bites, no matter what I tried.

I definitely saw an increase in them when I was there in December. My son got bit at Dukes, our condo, other restaurants and the hikes he did. Bring the little packs of towelettes and if you are prone I'd use it.

I'd suggest using spray early morning and at dinner time outside if you're prone. I find it helpful to avoid any lotion with a scent, or of course perfume or cologne. Some of the tanning products are quite fragrant, too.

pzp, we are from farm country here more or less. There are plenty of chickens. The wife and I still managed to take probably 30 pictures of Kauai's official bird :^)
