My wife and I booked part 1 of our Hawaiian honeymoon at the Koa Kea. We stayed 5 nights at the hotel and loved every minute of it. The grounds were quiet, clean, beautiful and not crowded, the pool was smaller but sufficient, the whirlpool was great, the ocean view was amazing and close. We never had to worry about rushing to find a poolside chair as it was never really crowded. The service at the poolside bar and activity/rental desk was great. The poolside food & drinks were very good. The location of the resort might be the best spot overall on the island. Renting a car is a must though as there is lots to see and do in Kauai. Poipu is a great location that's close to shops and restaurants, along with a great beach area (soft sand) within a minute on both sides of the resort. To the right is a much nicer beach and was not nearly as crowded. You can surf, swim and snorkel at the same beach. The Red Salt restaurant was perfect. We had a breakfast deal included and it was awesome. Hot entrees plus a mini buffet area. The restaurant has a beautiful layout with a nice view. Valet parking was free and the staff were very friendly, helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and the beds were extremely comfy. The room had a nice little balcony, the bathroom was nice with large showers with 2 shower heads. We had a partial ocean view room which was more than enough. Overall this was one of, if not the best hotel we've ever stayed in. We wanted a quieter hotel and thats what we got. Fyi - there were mainly adults/couples at the resort, very few kids which was perfect for us. Once again Mahalo to the staff and hotel for a memorable honeymoon! We will recommend you and hopefully return for a future anniversary.
