“Laid back relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Kapaa is definitely not Princeville, and that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Laid back town and a laid back resort style condo. Our unit featured 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and had laundry facilities in room. Nice view off the lanai, rock beach out front with sand beaches at either end. Nice pool, and a great restaurant right across the street. Weber bbqs on site, so we used them to a great result. Safeway an easy walk about 2 blocks away. Nothing not to like about this property, unless you require 5 star accomodations. The bed was comfortable enough that I slept pretty well even with that damn rooster crowing all night!

Room Tip: Apparently not all rooms have in room laundry service, ask for it when making your reservation!

Kapa'a is central Eastside-easy drives to the rest of Kaua'i. WM-Kapa'a is just south of town center, and at the south end of the gorgeous four-mile seaside walkway. Kapa'a is not upscale like Princeville or Poipu, but access is great to them and everything else.

WM-Kapa'a is right on the shore...every room has a view. There is no swimmable beach, but see access above. Laying on the expansive lawn is A+.

This WM is established:been here a while. Rooms are smallish (but every room has that view!] A bit worn at the edges, but very well maintained. THE amenity is its location.

We like Kapa'a because it is roughly central, has all the shopping, is next to the walkway, and has the view. Simple, and gorgeous.

Aloha Peter,

One of the things we take pride in is the fantastic beach view from our units. We’re glad you enjoyed this view and found our location convenient to area shopping and the walkway. It sounds like you had a great vacation. We look forward to your next visit!

Spent a week at this property and everyone went above and beyond to make our stay great! Kudos to all at Kapaa Shores! Everything was taken care of and we were not disappointed one bit! Not the same treatment for our next week in Kona!

As WM owners for 12 years, we have stayed at many WM properties and have experienced quite a range of facilities. This one is just OK and if not for the great location on the shore, we would rate it lower. There were no in-room laundry facilities and we had to pay to use the central facilities, which were not very high quality. The unit interior was OK but fixtures were outdated and worn. We decided to look past the facilities and enjoy the view.

Room Tip: Make sure you get an ocean front suite

I got in late after the office closed but check in was handled in a quick and efficient manner. Went to the office the next day and I was greeted by friendly helpful staff. One bedroom unit very nice. Unit location had a great ocean view. Centrally located, close to everything that I needed. Will definitely come back. Full kitchens allow you to cut costs by eating in sometimes. We ate breakfast in and most other meals at the many options available in the area. This is "homey" living vs lap of luxury but provides a restful convenient place to enjoy all that Kauai has to offer.

Room Tip: Ocean view a must

We are not overly particular about our condos as long as they have the amenities we have come to expect from our Worldmark ownership. We like having a washer/dryer/kitchen and comfortable bed; beyond that we don't require much as we are off going and doing all day long. We loved our location, the view from our room and the sound of the ocean each night. If you are looking for something "fancy" this is not it, but it more than met our needs and wants. We were able to walk to everything in Kapaa we wanted to see and do and it was conveniently located to both North and South Shores. Though there were only two of us we liked being in the two bedroom unit because of the third floor location. It would not be good for someone who has trouble with stairs. We definitely plan to stay here again.

We booked last minute to celebrate our 10 year anniversary using my family's bonus time. The resort is located close to a few good restaurants and shopping places (Safeway, Starbucks, Lemongrass Grill, Shrimp Station to name a few). The view is breathtaking - absolutely amazing. Front desk staff was friendly but unlike other resorts, there was no concierge to help plan activities. The beach on the grounds is essentially inaccessable; very rocky, signs advising not to enter. Pool and hot tub were very nice and usually empty. The room was just okay; we had a two bedroom suite and the full size bed was not comfortable. No AC, which would have been SUPER nice, but after visiting many places it seemed like very few stores/restaurants/etc had AC. No ocean view from upstairs loft but the windows were open and ocean sound was nice. The room was clean enough, and it's really handy having the washer and dryer in the room. I don't think it's uncommon on the island, but we had three lizzards in our room. They were harmless but something we weren't used to! The only vending machines on the property were for soda, so for quick snacks it was a walk to Safeway - and I say walk because traffic pulling out of the resort is steady. Luckily, Kauai drivers seemed very nice and would yield to pedestrians.

I didn't think the mediocre reviews would matter too much since afterall, we'd be in paradise, who would stay in their room?! Turns out we did, as my husband was sick the first and last full day we were on the island. I feel like we could have gotten a better value for our money. It wasn't bad, it wasn't fantastic, it was just okay.
