On the beach

The hotel is on the beach which is nice. The hotel's "resort fees are a bit ridiculous. They are over $20 a day and I am not sure what you get for the money. There is a small pool. A hot tub that didn't work well and that was it. The rooms are on the larger side. No restaurant on the property. There are some int he little shopping center that is adjacent. The grounds are pretty. They tell you that they up grade rooms if they are available and give you a box of chocolate. That didn't happen for me. But over all it is an OK place to stay.

Located right next to Coconut Market Place, this facility is right on the beach. Simple but ample, we found it advantageous to stay here. The resort provides a daily allowance for a gourmet coffee, mango lemonade or exotic tea via a boutique coffee shop practically on the premise. We found that an enjoyable 1 minute walking trip daily from our room. Right next to the parking lot, we found Sleeping Giant Grill, a reasonably priced healthy and tasty fresh menu keep them busy with residents, a bar and lounge providing breakfast as well and live entertainment at night. Walking across the parking lot is the Coconut Market Place where we went to ABC, market, shops. Next door on the beach is a popular restaurant and club Lava Lava Beach Club which is 45 seconds walk from our room (breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dinner). We also tried other 4-5 Star eateries in Kapaa within walking distance but my wife preferred to go in the car to save time. Before booking, we read the reviews of the location. However you will have to stay here to really appreciate its superb convenient. The beach is stunningly beautiful. Like other beaches nearby, you have to realize shallow old corals, reefs and rocks, surfs and currents can be hazardous. It is not a good swimming beach. For beach walk you can get moderate exercise around here going north and back. Like other parts of Kauai you will find abundant roosters. They are colourful, beautiful and strong. We were shocked to see how high they can jump, launching into flights into trees. Their circadian rhythm seems in disarray. You can hear them crowing around the clock. On vacation we found that funny and unexpected. Some guests are not happy being awakened times at night. This however occurs everywhere on the island. As an environment factor, we do not count it against the Islander. We applaud the resort for being non-smoking,allowing it only in specific designated areas. It is much appreciated by non-smokers and those sensitive to second hand smoke. We did however experience some second hand smoke from guests who violate the policy, tempted to report a few times to the manager. Perhaps more emphasis can be posted in rooms and public areas by the resort.

Perfect location!

A perfect location right on the beach. If you can get a room facing the beach, even better. However.....no restaurant on site but Lava Lava Beach club just a very short walk is open for breakfast, lunch and tea.....all on the beach! Other eating options also available close but off site. Resort pool very small so not great for a bunch of kids but enough to relax with a beer or wine by the pool. Outside bar available by the pool. Rooms comfortable and clean. A great spot off the main road. And fantastic to be able to walk along the beach. Don't expect Waikiki kind of busyness....more a relaxed "Do your own thing" kind of location.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. First of all it’s obvious that they cater to the traveler who is staying for the season, not the people coming for a short stay. We’ve come to realize that there are very few new hotels here in Kauai, so our hotel exterior looks like many others. However it’s when you step in to the room that the true time warp starts. The decor has not changed since 1982, the same goes for the mattress and pillows, I don’t think they could have been harder. The front desk staff add nothing to the hotel. We needed a sewing kit because my bathing suit broke, nope not one at the front desk. We asked for restaurant recommendations, they sent us to a chain and told us to look on trip advisor. It seems like the pool bar area is popular but we didn’t use it. The room needs to be cleaned well, it was gross to see dirt in the corners in the bathroom and around the front door. The shampoo and soap were unusable because of the heavy scent. The little kitchen is useful for making breakfast and light lunch, it would be difficult to make a meal. There are bbq’s available. The saving grace for this hotel is the location, it’s pretty centrally located, close to the airport. The beach is totally open, very few guests use it. The beach does have a coral reef line so you can’t use a boogie board but there are times when the water is calm that you can snorkel and see many fish. It’s very quiet here, we appreciated that. To sum it up, it was on ok hotel in a great location.

Affordable and in a great spot

This was one of the most affordable hotels we could find on Kauai in March. It was a pretty hotel, perhaps a little dated but that didn't matter. We were looking to stay in Kapaa for the convenience of being able to drive North or South in not too much time. We didn't spend a whole lot of time at the hotel but we did hang around the pool a couple of afternoons. The coffee shop next to the hotel (in the parking lot) is great, especially if you aren't the biggest fan of 'American' coffee. There was also a convenient snorkel hire in the parking lot and a good little bar.
