Families, couples and other travelers will find the Marriott Waiohai Beach Club to be a wonderful location located in one of the best areas of Kauai and the Hawaiian Islands. We have been coming to the Waiohai since 2003 when Marriott opened the first phases of the timeshare. The staff was and continues to be the very best in the Marriott timeshare chain (in my opinion) and their hospitality, consideration and friendliness set the bar for the rest of the Marriott units to chase (again, in my opinion and we own at 3 different Marriotts). Troy Lazaro, who runs their new fitness program is one of the top 2 Marriott employees I have encountered in over 35 years of travel (vacation/business) and his enthusiasm and talents are gifts he shares with the guests that spend time at the resort.
Much has been written about the property itself and the pool, beach areas and complex are first-rate. There is no pressure to attend a timeshare presentation...pretty much just an offer that is easily declined. We had a ground floor unit that looked out onto the "garden" area and made for easy access to the grills, pools and hot-tubs. During a two week stay we made 2 requests to the front desk for a cutting board and a new pot (handle broke). Both calls were answered promptly, the items brought within 10 minutes and there were follow-up calls to ensure we had received what we requested. The unit was not ready at the 4:00 check-in...slight delay to 4:30 and without asking for anything the check-in staff offered 4 drink coupons for our party...we were fine with that.
The one area that could be updated is the kitchen/kitchen utensil area. Functional cookware and utensils but cheap knives (a constant that we find in timeshares...no matter who manages them); a small teflon pan (a 12 inch would be better) and very dated silverware/plates/glasses. Nothing bad here, just little things.
There are numerous activities on the property for all ages that are offered and run by a very dedicated staff. The fitness activities were complimentary and very few activities involved a fee. They even offer a DVD kiosk with free rentals (limited selection, but enough given that you are in Hawaii). It's close to everything on the south end of the island and most importantly, it's in the "sunny" area of Kauai. An excellent property and staff!
