“Great family resort”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We enjoyed our second stay at the Grand Hyatt. We traveled during Spring Break and it didn't seem too busy at all because of the size of this place. We sprung for the Club option, and was a bit disappointed this time around. The breakfast and appetizers were not as good and they do not have my Hawaiian drinks anymore. Service is still great, and the location is beautiful.Try to get a breakfast included package and go to the clubhouse instead of the busy buffet. If you have kids they'll love Club Hyatt. Greg, Tasha and Leilani are so great. My kids wanted to spend all their time there. You can get beach chairs, water and towels at the valet for freezy :) Aloha

Room Tip: Ocean view is amazing, poipu side is quiet, while shipwreck is on the party side with the pool close...

In April 2014 we spent a week at the Grand Hyatt in Poipu with our 4 children who range in age from senior in high school to first grade. All that I can say is that this resort was perfect for our family. The pools and Lagoon were spacious with plenty of seating in the sun or in the shade. The younger kids spend hours on the water slide while the older kids enjoyed the beach and the lagoon. Breakfasts were included in our room package...the buffet was phenomenal. Usually we ate so much that only a light snack was needed in the afternoon. The staff was very accommodating on days when we had plans to sail or beach away from the resort and provided containers to pack up our huge breakfasts. If you haven't been to Hawaii before, let me say that having visited all 5 islands, Kauai is our favorite for the most laid back atmosphere and incredible scenery. The Hyatt is everything you could hope for.

Fell in love with the Grand Hyatt, this place is incredible. If you are thinking about staying here, just book it already! The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are fantastic, but I can't keep from dreaming about the pools. The salt water lagoon was our favorite spot to swim, the pool is large enough that even when busy you can find a spot to call your own. The Grand Hyatt is a very special property. This is beyond anywhere else we've ever stayed, and if you look at my reviews, we've stayed in many places in Hawaii. Even several places on Kauai and the Grand Hyatt is our all-time favorite experience. We are forever spoiled, so sorry to all of the other properties that we visit in the future... you can't compete. The Grand Hyatt is able to be very luxurious and keep some old Hawaii charm, simply perfect.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai is way too big for my taste - like an apartment housing complex surrounding a golf course, that just happens to be on a beach. But, since there really are no boutique hotels on Kauai (and by boutique, I mean 30 rooms instead of 600 and an experience that can't be duplicated in 100 other locations), it's not a bad option for a short(ish) stay on the island.

Service is truly top notch, rooms are nice and clean - though walking 10 minutes to get to it... meh..., grounds are beautiful (albeit in a dated and overly-groomed golf course / DisneyWorld sort of way), restaurants are good but also dated, a bit stodgy and mostly overdone. It is obvious that this place was built with weddings, banquets and vacationing business-families in mind. But, in the end, the staff does an excellent job of making it feel like a small(er) and personal experience. Great front desk with a knack for conveying a super-relaxed but buttoned up feeling, helpful concierge services, restaurant and pool staff were excellent... It just works.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 5th floor club room, had a view of the ocean and found it to be very quiet. Would re...

Green Features: Not great to average for a hotel this size - obviously a ton of resources are dumped into the pool, golf course and grounds upkeep.

Like all of Hyatt"s premier hotels, this fabulous resort does not disappoint. From the lobby to the pool areas everything is designed and decorated with the finest finishes and materials. Great food options abound. Including several high end choices with gourmet menus. The staff was accommodating in every respect. This hotel certainly should be considered one of the finest hotels in all of Hawaii.

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hyatt for a business trip in March. The group was over 500 strong, and the resort handled the group superbly. Expansive grounds and building did not seem crowded. Lots of wildlife is visible within a short walk, seals, fish, whales and many turtles are a few hundred yards away. Pool is expansive and clean. Only draw back - drink and food prices are excessive. Location of the resort is close to Poipu restaurants and shopping as well as Lihue

Weather was a little rough with 35 mph wind gusts and red flag warnings the week we're there but the resort was great. We both had massages at the spa which were fantastic and the food was awesome at all of the restaurants on the resort. We will definately be staying here on our next trip. Beautiful flower and fauna throughout. A great vacation spot.
