“Kauai Relaxing”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

The Beach Resort was very nice, probably the best resort of our 3-island hop. I will end up rating the island low but, the resort high.

Rural, quiet, except for the roosters at daybreak, but it was 9 am at home when they started. The Resort had the best beds, worst coffee, and a very nice buffet. Pools are beautiful, beach is quiet. You will need a car to get around.

Wonderful hotel. Grounds are beatiful and the location was great for us. We wanted to see all of Kauai and this hotel was right in the middle of the highway. The only thing i didnt like was that the waters at the beach from this hotel was to dangerous to swim in.

Aloha and thank you for your review of the Kauai Beach Resort. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit with us and found our resort to be in a convenient location to all island activities. With respect to the ocean area fronting the resort, although this is a reef area and not recommended for swimming, there is a three-mile stretch of beach north of the resort that is suitable for swimming and strolling along. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future. Mahalo!

I will start with negatives, which are not many. Cellular service sucks. During are stay we went to lobby to use internet, but there cell service was down. We complained and they got us free internet to are rooms, which hardly ever worked. Avoid the car rental service there, super expensive. To park overnight is 16 bucks, which is typical in Hawaii. The pro's are the cleaning staff was terrific, and everybody is nice. We got a good deal, and the resort has nice watefalls and scenery. The rooms are good size. Yes we would return if we get a good deal.

This is a nice property, I wouldn't want to stay here for a week but it's a great option at this price at a location near the airport. The pools are fun and the grounds are kept clean, but this is not a 4 star resort like it's advertised in some places. With that said, it's far superior to the nearby Marriott Courtyard. If you are looking for a real resort experience, you can't go wrong with the Grand Hyatt in Poipu, it's simply magical. If you are on a tight budget this is a good place to stay. The beach is not swimmable but the pools are enough to keep you busy and happy.

This is an average plus hotel that is showing some wear and tear is some parts. It's strong points are it's central location that puts almost everything on the island at most a hour away and it's close proximity to Lihue and the airport. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We did not use the beach at the hotel (jelly fish warning sign posted and a little rocky) or any of the other facilities. Would consider staying there again.

We stayed here for 4 nights, and didnt have any issues. The front desk was friendly and approachable, the valet parkers out the front friendly (although we always parked ourselves), and the housekeeping friendly too. The resort facilities are pretty good, with the pools always buzzing, but not so much that you feel crowded, and the kids pool with slide always had a few adults giving the slide a go! The beach itself is not much to speak of - I was in no way tempted to go near the water, but the view out to sea is pretty good. The room was roomy enough and the shower was wonderful! Breakfast - which we had included - was good, although I would begrudge paying $25 for the buffet if it wasnt included. There was a fair selection which changed daily, and the service was very good. I would stay here again for the price.

This was our first time to Kauai and would definitely stay here again.

All of the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, going out of there way to say hello and make sure we had a good time.

The facilities were top class and maintained very well. Beautiful selection of pools so there is plenty of space for everyone, and a few options of spas. I also loved the waterslide and sitting by the fire pit at night. Free wifi in the lobby was great, and the massage at the day spa was fantastic but a little overpriced. It was also helpful having a little general store with a few bits and pieces.

Our package included a hire car and we made use of free valet parking every time we went. The service was great.

We didn't do any inclusive food which was a good move for us as it gave us options to try out a few places. The food was good and a decent selection, a little more than you would pay in restaurants, but of course it's convenient as it's right there.

We stayed in a 2 x double bed room and it was really nice with balcony, tv, mini fridge etc it had enough space and was perfect for us.

The location was also awesome as it had its own private beach, was on the road heading north for sight seeing, nice and close to the airport but without any noise.

Definitely recommend and would stay again!
