We LOVED the Hotel Coral Reef. The room was perfect with a gorgous ocean view. The staff were friendly and helpful. The coffee in the office was stupendous and the pool was great too. It is a perfect location for exploring the entire island as it is in the middle of the North and South shores. Tons of good places to eat nearby and liked it because it is much smaller than most other hotels - hence no crowds. It is a perfect location to relax, unwind and enjoy all Kauai has to offer.
