We enjoyed five days of comfort and tranquillity in this beautiful hotel, where the service was superb and the room was immaculate in terms of comfort, cleanliness and quality. As I-prefer members we were delighted to receive a complimentary upgrade to partial ocean view, and we had the package that included breakfast and 50 dollars food & drink credit each day. This really helped towards the (expensive) meal we had at Red Salt on our last evening, which was delicious. The entrees at breakfast were cooked to order and were wonderful (the lemon-pineapple soufflé pancakes were exquisite!), however we felt the continental buffet was rather limited, as was the lunchtime menu by the pool.
We appreciated NOT having to fight over sunbeds as in so many larger hotels, but the pool was very small and if there were more than three other couples it was quite difficult to actually swim without bumping into each other!
We would fully recommend a drive to Waimea Canyon - this was truly spectacular - and we also took a flight around the island through 'Wings over Kauai', which again provided amazing views of this stunning island.
Back to the hotel itself: we had no regrets over choosing this hotel - it was as luxurious and lovely as described in most of these reviews, and the service could not be topped - but it was very pricey and perhaps lacked some of the facilities you would expect in a luxury, 5* hotel. In future we would probably want a bit more for our money, but still a wonderful place!
