A very nice hotel with a beautiful location on the ocean in south Kauai. Service was very good and I would definitely consider coming back, but would like to make those considering this hotel aware of just a few things:
- The beach is excellent for swimming, not great for body boarding, surfing, snorkling or for children. The waves are generally not big but break very close to shore. Children need to be supervised and swimming is about the only water activity that works. You can rent bodyboards for $15 dollars a day but the waves don't work on the beach here for them.
- Shade is a huge issue. There are no umbrellas or trees to speak of on the beach - therefore you are exposed to constant sun. If you want, you can rent a $45 per day cabana which is really just two wooden lawn chairs with a bit of a tent awning over it. Otherwise you would need to have your own umbrella. There are lawn chairs in the pool area nearby, but limited umbrellas there - hard to find shade.
- As other travelers have noted, the rooms are not very sound proof. If you are a light sleeper, this could be an issue. Bring earplugs.
Overall, the resort is clean and has a very relaxed atmosphere. Food is not cheap, but is well prepared. Great sunsets, often see whales and a lot of pluses.
If you are coming for a great beach and water sports - I would recommend elsewhere. Otherwise, a very good choice.
