We spent two weeks in Kauai, the first week at the Marriott property at Poipu Beach and our second week over Christmas at the Beach Club.
We much preferred Poipu Beach Marriott, but were also happy with The Beach Club.
It is a larger property, so you we felt we were with the "masses" for most of the time. While we had beach/poolside chairs each day, it was busy. We are Owners and requested and paid for an Ocean View. We were a bit disappointed having a full view of the rooftop, just over the lobby and partial ocean views. The small kitchen facilities were great, blender, microwave, mini-fridge etc. We were in a Suite and only had our room tidied once over the 7 day stay. They would come in daily and take the garbage out, but really should also have been checking/changing towels. We are a family of four and we had to ask several time for new towels and extra toilet paper. These are small details, but should be handled better. The food on site is very good, but expensive. The ocean is great for swimming, boogie boarding and paddling. It is not good for snorkelling. Small boardwalk that takes you to various other restaurants, which is very convenient, so no need to drive. Dukes was great, they have a different menu for upstairs and a different one for downstairs. Both were worth the visit. We also went to Portifino, as we heard it was excellent. Honestly, it was nothing special. They were busy, and the service was poor, food quality was mid-Italian. If you like a larger resort atmosphere you will not be disappointed. If you like a smaller more intimate location, with a few walking choices for beaches, great snorkelling and a bit more of a surf, then try the Poipu location (which is known as the sunniest part of the Island). The rooms were also nicer and larger, but no on-site restaurants, except for the pool bar. We will visit Kauai again, I preferred it to Maui. Lots to see and explore. Enjoy.
