Laid back, secluded resort on the east side.
MARIA C.
Nov 21 2017
Laid back, seclude resort on the east side. Did not have to deal with noisy crowds, the "touristy" feel, or rowdiness. Clean, with hospitable accommodating staff. Beach has gorgeous sunrises, but not a swimming/snorkling beach due to the reef and waves. Pool is large and never felt crowded. Breakfast buffet was perfect! Omelette station with waffles and nutella.... yuuummm. Our stay was incredible and would definitely stay here again.

We liked the location (closest to airport!) and the hotel but only walked along the beach. The surf was very rough. There's a nasty coral reef!

I was disappointed in room location. We wanted and thought we paid for an outstanding view of ocean. What we got was first room on the end with a view of a roof. when we complained room two was farther away from lobby ( my wife is disabled and requested room close to lobby) and an even better view of a roof on the end again. We booked this five months in advance so we feel we should have gotten more what we ordered and paid for. We did not complain anymore because we thought the next room could only get worse.

It seemed like I read mixed reviews when we chose this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. I do want to caveat that we really only slept there and ate breakfast, as we were busy during the day, so we didn't stay by the pool. The hotel is clean, neat and all of the staff was very friendly. The breakfast had a good variety for those of us that want to eay healthy. I really appreciated that! The only thing I would have changed is the bar by the pool. It closes early, however there is a bar in the main building if you are interested. We are just accustomed to staying at resorts where you can hang by the pool bar in the evenings, so that you can be outside. We would stay at this location again and I would recommend the area. The hotel is located on the East side, which we preferred, because we drove the island more than once, so it was helpful to be somewhat centrally located.

The Kauai beach resort was large, well maintained and had nice staff on hand. I like the fact that it is close to Lihue Airport..most other large resorts are either at the South end or North end of the Island. The beach isn't the best for swimming, but it is nice to look at. Overall a nice hotel and decent value(when factoring Hawaii style prices).

We had a wonderful time at this resort. All the staff were excellent and really friendly. The rooms were nice. Great pool. We also like this hotel because it's in a central location for beach hopping on either side of the island.

"Our Hotel"
CHRISTIAN A.
Oct 06 2011
The reason we say Kauai Beach Resort is "Our Hotel", is because we have been a guest approximately nine (9) years in a row, except for one year. We made sure to return the following year, since we were not impressed with the other hotel. In addition, we send our staff to Kauai every two years, and of course, we have our staff stay at Kauai Beach Resort.

Everything was great with the hotel except for the air conditioning and beach. The air conditioning worked but not that well. We like it cold when we sleep and the air never really went below 70. They said all of the rooms are that way. We bought a fan for $17 and that combined with the 70 degrees made it feel comfortable. The beach bottom was rocky and shallow. We had a rental car and found much more beautiful beaches to spend time and swim on other parts of the island. Otherwise, everything else was great. The staff was very nice. The cleaning staff was awesome! The hotel is quiet and clean. It is also at a nice central location.

Beautiful Resort for Couples & Families/Relaxing for Singles.
universeho, Paris, France
Tue Aug 14 10:14:36 EDT 2018
This is a great resort for families or just a relaxing holiday if you're single. The staff is very nice & genuien as the Hawaiian people are as a whole. This is more a Family resort or for Newlyweds. You will need a car so plan a rental car in your budget. The hotel does offer to take you to nearby stores & venues but if you want to see the Island, you will need a car. The beach is not one that you can layout on. It's ruggered, the tide comes in quick & changes frequently. Rip currents are the norm so keep away from the ocean. After all, you're in the middle of the Pacific ocean. The hotel has several buildings & an array of activities are planned throughout the day. The area of this hotel once belonged to His Majesty King K•••••••••••••••••••••••••• (I would not dare try to spell it, or misspell it) so you may meet some Hawaiian Blue bloods. They compete every year in the traditional dance competition & have won a few times. HINT: MEN wear the flower in their hair on the Right side, WOMEN on the left. No worries, they will correct you. Now about the CHICKENS!!! There are wild chickens everywhere. They are treasured by the locals as a sign from their Gods. They run around the grounds freely. The hotel even has a shop w/merchandise about the CHICKENS. They can be very aggressive if your having lunch/dinner at the pool bar. And get this, they EAT CHICKEN! We feed then pieces of chicken at lunch. Hahahaha Your seashell ring is your Do Not Distrube sign if hanging on ur door. It's not to be worn as an accessory...hahahaha The chambres are large w/individual balconies facing the ocean. Enjoy!

Very comfortable, great facilities, but a bit tired. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is close to the airport and only a short drive to the coastal village of Kapaa where eateries and various small town facilities are worth a visit. The resort is a bit expensive in our opinion for food and drinks. We had a succulent filet mignon but it was about the size of a $1 coin. Would probably revisit but definitely eat out.

Ruined our Honeymoon, Treated us like criminals, do not go here or use Hotels.com
serenityarms, Snoqualmie, Washington

I will be sending this review out in every form and making PR release on this. They ruined our honeymoon, treated us like criminals and humiliated us. We paid via Hotels.com for a total of 4 days. We paid for the first day deciding if we wanted to stay her. Then paid for two more through Hotels.com (read their review on BBB this happens ALL the time). A manager named Rashel was helping us at first. We were enjoying first few days, then paid for an extra day as we had so much time ruined trying to working with hotel and Hotels.com to straighten this out. Then Rashel called us and said we needed to pay $500 since they couldn't locate the funds Hotels.com charged us and called security who not only made us leave the property but had a police officer escort us out. Humiliated us. Gave us 30 minutes to pay DOUBLE. Left us without a room the last day of our honeymoon, and we flew home that night changing our flight. DO NOT go to resort. The managers are deceitful and will ruin your special vacation. And Hotels.com will just pocket your money. Ruined the most special time of my life. I will be posting everywhere so people know not to go to this hotel. Also rooms are far removed from rest of island. You are stuck at their location with their high priced food with low selection.

4 star stay!

Pros: Beautiful property, great pools and hot tubs, free airport shuttle to use for the airport and to get to and from your car rental at the airport, great gift shop, amazing hair salon with a talented stylist Leonie, great breakfast options, dinner was good too, polite and helpful staff (Jeanette at Naupaka Terrance is the kindest and most helpful person I've ever met,she deserves a raise!! She's an exceptional employee!), happy hour options, shave ice, great housekeeping staff, pretty sunrise views, valet parking included in the resort rate and fun day activities. We loved the koi feeding, chickens running around,lots of birds and a perfect sea breeze everyday! Cons: The espresso machine was broken 5 out of the 8 days we were there (at both Naupaka terrace and the Island market coffee shop), the beach was littered with plastic/trash, lack of enough umbrellas around the pool, and the lunch options were lacking. Beach not suitable for swimming. We recommend having a rental car for atleast a few days to explore better lunch options and to see other parts of the island! Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Kauai Beach Resort!

Good location

I liked this place mostly because it was near the airport. I like watching the planes (the F22s were a highlight!) If you intend on staying around the hotel you'll be all right. However, there's no bus stop around. If you intend to sightsee, I'd recommend renting a car. You can do that from the hotel or the airport. The beach in front of the hotel is not very swim-able. It's rocky and plastic garbage strewn. If you've got kids, you're going to want to use the pools (there are 3). The rooms are a good size and the housekeepers very attentive. The breakfast buffet is worth the money, but watch out for the birds. They'll be after your food.
