We really enjoyed the Kauai Beach Villas. Our 2-bedroom (D14) was much better than expected. The unit was clean, well-maintained, and very spacious. I liked the layout, which had a separate hallway for each bedroom. The kitchen was very well equipped. We were delighted to see a coffee grinder and even a rice cooker.
The unit did smell of smoke when we entered, but we did not notice it once we were settled in. D14 is a ground floor unit. We didn't use our outdoor table much because the chickens, ducks, and geese left such a mess. The air conditioners did not look bad from the inside but they weren't very reliable (stopped working if you kept them on "cool" too long), so the should be updated. Finally, be aware that the concierge will try to get you to go to a timeshare presentation and that the "free breakfast" is really for getting you to sign up and pay for extra activities.
I have no complaint about the grounds, they were lovely. We enjoyed walking along the beach. Good place to look at the stars at night. The resort next door was happy to invite us to use their pool facilities (although we did not take advantage of the offer).
All in all, we would certainly stay there again, although I would also try Poipu Beach. We traveled all over, so the location of Kauai Beach Villas was very convenient. When we went to the Princeville area, it seemed too busy--too many condos. Another RCI resort we saw in Kapaa was close to a swimming beach but didn't have the lovely grounds we had.
Wireless Internet worked well in some rooms and not in others.
