We looked at almost every hotel/resort on Kauai before we decided on the Coral Reef Resort...we are so happy with our choice! George, Ronda and Kapua were so welcoming and friendly - they made us feel like house guests! If you want peace and quiet with a comfortable atmosphere AND don't want to fight the crowds (i.e. packed elevators and lobbies) then this is the place for you. We spent our honeymoon here - 10 night of pure relaxation and a mere 100 ft. to the beach - again, no crowds. A plus...walking distance to shops and restaurants (local food too!).
An extra plus...the best shaved ice from Hee Fat General store.
FYI - we stayed on the 2nd floor in one of their king suites with a jacuzzi tub and ocean front view/balcony...beach towels, chairs and coolers are complimentary and you can rent a bike for $5 a day! Continental breakfast was good - lots of fresh fruit, specially blended juice by George and a variety of pastries!
Again, if you are looking for peace and quiet we highly recommend the Coral Reef Resort...we'll definitely be back!
