I've been using RCI for about 10 years now and have been to quite a few of the Hawaiian resorts. I think you have to have reasonable expectations when using RCI. In my experience a nice property is really more average or middle of the road vs a traditional non-timeshare resort. The bad ones can be really bad - downright disgusting. This was definitely one of the nicer RCI exchangeable properties I've stayed at.
We had a party of 6, requested an upgrade from a 2 to a 3 bedroom which they were able to do for a very reasonable fee. The unit itself was very spacious and modern enough. All 3 bedrooms had their own private bathroom. Beds were comfy. The deck was good size - it wrapped around the back and side of the unit with 3 sliding glass doors for easy access. Kitchen was equipped well enough. We used both the rice maker and blender that was provided.
My 2 kids really enjoyed the pool. One end had a sandy entrance that they thought was really cool. Both the hot tub and pool area had waterfalls. Plenty of chairs & lounge chairs. We didn't use them but there were numerous grills in the area. Also worth noting- due to the construction only one of the pools were open and that never was a problem for us. Maybe because we mostly hit the beaches and left the resort during the day? Either way, it never felt cramped or crowded at the pool or hot tub.
If you are looking for an alright place to call home base while you're out exploring & enjoying Kauai, I'd say this place is very doable. It's not luxurious. If you want a resort that you don't feel the need to leave, head down the road to St. Regis or the Westin. But I could stay here again.
