“Impressive, Half-Constructed Resort, Not on the Beach”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Wyndham Hotels is currently managing the Koloa Landing resort project that is approximately 50% complete. Each building features four units on each of four floors (16 units per building), that are privately owned and rented out via Wyndham. The units are new, very large, and beautiful. We stayed in a ground floor, 3 bedroom unit, that was approximately 2,700 square feet in size. Granite, stainless steel, and dark wood abound. The master bathroom was large enough to throw a party in. Every unit has very large lanais/porches, that feature a dining table and many lounge chairs, and multi-panel, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, that all slide into a wall closet, opening up one or two sides of your main living area to the outdoors (our slide-away openings were 16 and 26 feet wide!). Its like bringing a big part of Kauai into your condominium when open.

The southern perimeter/gate of the resort is located approximately 100 yards from the ocean. The development is set back from the ocean, and is on a gradual uphill slope, providing the elevation to see over the line of homes and small street that are in-between the ocean and the resort. There is not much of a "beach", or sand at the shore. Lots of large black rocks, that provide a nice photo setting. There is no room to layout, or relax at the ocean at this spot, nor is there an easy spot to get into the water to snorkel. That said, we walked the 5-8 minutes through the resort, and down the cul-de-sac street, to the beach to watch the sunset every night. Its a popular little area for this, with a half-dozen locals in cars pulled over to the side of the road to take it all in. There are two beaches that are 10-15 walks from the Wyndam, or a half-dozen within a 5 minute drive. While I normally consider myself a "beach person", enjoying morning walks, sailing, snorkeling, swimming with the kids, I was fine with being "off the beach" at the Wyndham. The quality and space and relaxation at the Koloa Landing was a nice offset at the end of the day from the busy-ness at the beach.

The main pool are is nice, our kids aged 10 to 16 had just enough to keep them busy and engaged there. The pool and the resort area is well landscaped, despite being half-finished. There are two industrial sized gas-grills at the pool area open for all to use. We utilized them every night. Note there are numerous chickens (and roosters) roaming around the grounds by the pool, and a few wild cats, that give the place a very local, low key vibe.

If you are looking for a Beachfront, luxury hotel with multiple restaurants and staff following in your footsteps, this is NOT for you.

If you like to cook in a kitchen fit for a king, supply your own food and beverages, enjoy high-end quality living quarters, and are relatively self-sufficient, this place is for you. I neglected to mention, the prices are very competitive.

Know there is a Costco near the Kauai airport that has excellent local fresh fish as well as the usual items.

Review: We cannot say enough about this gorgeous condo. We have stayed in many over the years but none like this one. It was spotless! It had all the amenities you would want, even spices, honey, you name it and it was provided. The condo itself was beautifully decorated and perfectly situated. The lanai, which we spent every morning, some afternoons and every evening on, was spacious and the furniture comfortable. It looked right over the main pool which was gorgeous at night with the Tiki torches and all the lights. The resort itself is perfect for couples with children -- 2 pools, one for adults only and one "fun" one for everyone else! It is also great for just couples as we are! The resort staff is friendly and accommodating as was the management company -- Kristen Greene was a pleasure to deal with -- very efficient! I could go on and on but it would just be redundant! There would be no hesitation on our part to stay at this resort again and especially this condo. No one would be disappointed renting this condo.
Our unit was on the 4th floor (top floor) with private elevators -- room 3-403

I give 4 stars only because of this. We stayed 7 days here and booked through Priceline and paid up front. A few days later and by the end of the stay there were $850 worth of charges on our account. Come to find out there were resort fees that we didn't know about. We were told 3 different things by the front desk. By the end of it, the "holding" fees were returned back to our account. We were told Ocean View but they have a giant green fence up due to some land that they are going to develope. Luckily, we were on the 2nd floor so we didn't have to look at it. The Koloa Landing is nice and we enjoyed it. I would stay here again now that I kind of know what to expect.
