We arrived on Sunday 12 August 2012 after a long problomatic journey of canceled flights, lost luggage to be met by the night security guard who could not have been more helpful, directing me to a car parking space and then giving us the key and directions for our room (117) ground floor in the Hawai'i block.

The room was spacious (two double beds) and a small kitchen area with coffee maker, kettle and microwave (coffee was replinished daily) and approrpiate crockery etc. A large bathroom with bath and a shower over the bath and a safe provided free of charge and access to patio area which led to the gardens and the beautiful white beach although it is not recommended to enter the sea due to strong tides.

The hotel gardens were beautiful full of orchids and very well maintained. You will see chickens roaming the grounds which you will find are a feature all over Kauai. The hotel pool is not the largest but there are plenty of sunbeds and parasols and the view of the ocean is beautiful. There is a pool bar which is staffed by a very pleasent young man who was always willing to help carry drinks back to your sunbed for you. Around the pool there are a number barbecues available for you to use and at dusk the gas lights are lit around the pool.

As I mentioned our luggage was lost by the airline and the receptionist was helpful in dirceting us to the nearest wal-mart for our emergency purchases. The location of the hotel was ideal as it was a central location there are numerous resturants near by the only thing I would say is that the resturants all seem to close quite early, but in all the resturants we ate in the menus were varied and reasonably priced. I would recommend Eggberts for breakfast very friendly staff and tasty food.

Our bags arrived at the hotel whilst we were out at a resturant and the security guard took delivery of them for us. Before we left the hotel we used the guest laundry the dvd rental machine was also to be found here. There was wi-fi available in the rooms with a code from reception however we had problem's connecting. There are PC's available in reception for a small charge.

All in all a very comfortable relaxing stay in a really beautiful place.

I was here about a year ago, so I can't vouch for the most current status of the hotel, but having been to few other hotels in Kauai, this was one of the cleaner, more comfortable hotels to stay in while traveling around Kauai.
The location was also in that it's in the middle of the island so OK access to both the north side and the south side with the Waimea Canyon.
The rooms were decorated Hawaiian style and yet quite modern, and the furniture looked quite new (I think they may have recently renovated).
Although the beach linked to the hotel didn't look quite so accessible (but then again neither my husband nor I are strongest of swimmers), we enjoyed relaxing at the hotel pool, especially the jacuzzi in the evenings.
Overall a great experience, and would definitely stay there again when visiting Kauai.

This was my first experience renting a private condo, and it was our honeymoon so my expectations were high for a memorable trip. This place was perfect for our trip! We had an ocean front unit on the third floor and the view was outstanding, and we were able to sleep with the door open listening to the sounds of the ocean. Amazing. It's a studio with a kitchenette, air conditioning & balcony. We found the amenities to be great for our one week stay, we didn't miss a full kitchen, the place is well kept and clean and the location of this hotel was perfect as it is in the middle of east coast making the north/south coasts easily accessible. We used the hot tub & pool and walked along the beach and spotted turtles. It's not really a swimming beach though we did see some brave the ocean every day. Having the Coconut Markteplace next door was great for daily shopping needs (beer/wine/water/snacks), as well as the farmers market for fresh fruit - a must!! We highly recommend this place and will definitely be back!! The resort grounds are very well kept, tiki torches and flowers were beautiful. Other than check-in we had no interaction with the staff so can't speak to that but check-in was a breeze, never had trouble finding parking and were really impressed with our week overall. Booking with Garden Island Properties was super easy, communication was great and the prices were definitely right. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Third floor, ocean front, in one of the buildings closest to the ocean - a must. We had a view that...

This was an Anniversary trip for us. The staff, the room and our wireless connection were all fantastic and I highly recommend this hotel and area if you are planning to visit Kauai. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the eastern shoreline of Kauai and we were so close to the water (maybe 30 meters) we felt to be part of the ocean. There is food available close by but we shopped at the Safeway supermarket in Kapaa (5 minutes away) and used the in room microwave and refridgerator. Saved a ton of money not eating out for every meal. This hotel is centrally located and it is easy to go on tours, luaus or take your car on driving trips.

Room Tip: The east facing buildings (we were in room 253) are great.

We stayed in the Lana'i building and had a view of part of the pool bar and part of the ocean. Room was clean and AC kept it cool. Grounds were very pretty and clean. Bed was not very comfortable and hard.

We stayed here for one night prior to our rental home becoming available. The hotel was right on the beach and we had an ocean view room which was lovely. I would have no problem staying longer here had we not rented a home. The pool and bar area always had people around, seemed to be a good gathering place. The hotel is close to Coconut Marketplace with a few restaurants and shops. Along the coast is a paved walkway, very nice for moonlight walks along the beach.
