This resort property used to be the Westin. It still retains many of the original Oriental sculptures throughout the grounds, but it is not as lavish as it used to be before the hurricane and change of ownership. Some nice landscaping. It has a very large circular swimming pool, and is on a swimmable beach. Some good waves for boogie-boarding. The beach is on a harbour shared with a harbour, so the water is not as clear as some other Kauai beaches. Rooms are spacious, but not as soundproof as I would like, especially for corridor noise. And the rooms have a smoke detector with a bothersome light directly above the bed.
I like its central location on the island, and prefer it to other hotels on the east coast. Great for a couple of days finishing up a vacation on Kauai; the airport is only a short drive away. For longer stays, I recommend the Poipu area, and the Grand Hyatt Resort in particular. Weather in Lihue is usually good, but Poipu is even more reliable.
