“Great property, bad murphy bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This property is one of the gems of the island. The grounds are fantastic, the restaurants are wonderful, and the the staff is helpful. I do have a quibble. This property has been converted for timeshare, and is primarily for that purpose. The murphy bed in our room was by far, the worst sleeping experience I have ever had outside of camping trips where I slept on the ground. It was so bed, my wife and I went to Wal-Mart, and bought and queen size inflatable air mattress to put on top of the bed just so we could get some sleep. That added about $20.00 a night to the cost of the room. At $2500 for a week, this is a good deal, but I did expect that I could use the the bed, as that IS what the room is for.....sleeping.

Room Tip: You won't be disappointed in this property, just the murphy beds.

My sincere thanks to Bill Countryman and his staff for creating a warm hospitable stay on our very special occasion. The little touches were much appreciated, and we will be returning soon to further enjoy the amenities and bright smiles.
Mahalo,

Very beautiful gardens all around this property. A beautiful koi pond with lots of large koi. A nene and a swan that will eat out of your hand. A very large pool that is right next to the ocean. This is truely a slice of heaven. This is my second time staying here and I will be back in the future.

Needed some real time off just to veg out and this certainly was the place. From the desk people the to rest of the staff they couldn't do more for us. This was our 40th anniversary and a bottle of champagne and strawberries were waiting in our room. Nice touch :) Rooms were typical Marriott. We did have them bring up a microwave (our unit was not a timeshare) so we made breakfast and the frig held enough for snacks as well. When you get there, ask the bell captain if anyone left any beach chairs. If you plan on touring other beaches (the one there is a protected harbor...no waves be great for other activities) you'll want to bring a chair. People go to K-mart, buy the chairs and leave them for others. We bought an umbrella and left that for others. If you're in the building by the pool, there is a "public" parking lot right behind the building. Tight parking but if you get a stop it will save on the 10 minute walk to the other main lot. In the morning they have an a'la' carte set-up at the upstairs bar overlooking the pool. Best deal is buy the $32/32 oz cup for coffee. You get free refills all week...coffee, tea and soft drinks at the ALC and all other bars all day. At $5.50 for a 16 oz cup of coffee and $3 for a soda...do the math. We actually had appetizers at the bar for dinner if we were at the hotel and it was delicious and more than filling. There are several nice eateries next to the hotel or a short ride away. If you are touring, go to Bubba's Burgers...there are three and they are all great. If you are playing golf, the course at the hotel is fabulous but there are also several in the area at 1/3 the price. Call the hotel to make tee times. Spa services are very good but the spa has no usual stuff like a steam and sauna. The gym which is not attached to the spa is better then most including a separate exercise and yoga room. Good equipment. Don't be concerned that the property is near the airport. Never saw or heard a plane plus it's only a 3 minute drive. Many prefer Princeville to the north or Pop'oi to the south but this is right in the middle so going to explore either is convenient. Definitely would consider a return.

Room Tip: If you book a pool room view, be sure it is above the 6th floor (which is actually the 20th floor...

We own a time share here and just stayed the week. The remodel has done wonders for the rooms, and although they are still working on the rooms it has few side affects. The Marriott restaurant has improved a lot as they are offering more choices through their menu. The grounds are as always nice, and the pool is outstanding. The service of the folks who work there is impeccable.

Thanks for a great stay

We used the resort as a hotel. The activities desk helped us with choosing the right excursions off property. We enjoyed the beautiful landscaping throughout the resort. The pool is the largest I have ever seen and is shaped in such a way that you felt like the pool was your own. The beach was wonderful and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance.

It was a great way to stay in Kauai.

I've stayed at this resort 3x -- 1x in the timeshare, 2x in hotel. The rooms come in various sizes. The suites are very nice with 1-2 bedrooms, and/or a wallbed (Murphy bed) in the living room. All beds, including the wallbed, are very comfortable. Kitchenette is small, with sink, microwave, small fridge, and dishwasher. No stove/oven. However there are plenty of excellent restaurants both at the resort or nearby. Everything is in walking distance. Hotel also provides a free shuttle to airport, which is just a few miles away (but there is no noise from planes, despite nearness of airport). Resort is located right on ocean, with beautiful views, nice beach, and nicely landscaped gardens. Resort pool is nice size, circular, not too deep, and has numerous (4?) hot tubs.
Service: When I booked my reservation online, I was asked my room preference. This was followed up with a personal email from a Marriott rep, confirming my request. They gave me exactly what I requested. And when I arrived on site, this representative contacted me twice more to confirm my satisfaction and offer any additional assistance. Nice customer service touch, Marriott! Keep it up!
