December honeymooners

We enjoyed staying here, but the rooms were average and even though we booked a double room online (only option through hotels.com) we weren't upgraded or moved to a King despite saying we were on our honeymoon. You are offered two free mai-tai's every night of your stay at the bar which was a fun plus as well as a free 2 hour bike rental at a place nearby -- not walkable though. Parking + resort fee was combined which was nice and no need for valet. The hotel location is on the beach but no one swims, it's just really windy and choppy (at least for December). We went to a different side of the island and it was sunny and calm swimming weather. The pools weren't anything special but they had a jacuzzi which is all we really cared about at night. The town of Kapa'a is really close by (via car) and it had yummy breakfast spots and shopping. Overall good central spot to stay.

Wonderful Location, Excellent Property, Great Staff

I've been in Hilton's 5-star hotels, so I hesitate to ever rate a Garden Inn as a 5, which is why I've rated it a 4; however, I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. Excellent location. Lydig Park, Wailea State Park, Wailea Falls, Shops, Safeway, and places to eat are close by. 30-minute drive to Hanalei. 30-minute drive to Waimea Canyon, 10-minutes from airport. Wanda was at the desk when we checked in and she was wonderful! We were very early due to our flight, but our room was available, and she got us right in. Breakfast has very nice selection. Omelets, etc. cooked to order. Lots of local fresh fruit. The beautiful open-air foyer provides lots of wonderful inside/outside seating with a large bar and televisions for games. Free self-parking. Our room (2318) was an end room away from the elevator, spacious and well-appointed with a wonderful view of the beach. Plenty of room for luggage. Large desk for computer. Bathroom with tub. Hard to beat Hilton cleanliness and service.

Great Hotel, Staff and Location

First visit to Kauai and couldn’t be happier. The location was perfect for getting around the island. It is central and off the main highway. Our family stayed at a cottage (diamond upgrade) with a king bed in bedroom and a sofa bed in other room. Needed a cot since the boys are older teenagers. Didn’t leave a lot of room but we were off most of the time. Our business meeting went well and I must say JonAllen and the conference staff are very low key and little pressure like most hotels. Great to work with. All the staff from the front desk, restaurant, security were great and so nice! There is the state park which has a beach, camping, biking/hiking trails. Breakfast was great and service was fabulous.

My mother and I vacationed to Kauai for 2 weeks. I had an ocean view room. It was amazing to wake up to a fantastic view each morning (see pictures). My mom had a regular room and it was a bit larger than the ocean front. The room is pretty basic (which is fine as I never really spent time in there). My only wish is that there had been a balcony. The window does open, which was nice. The hotel is open air. I loved it. There are 3 separate wings and then cottages as well. There isn’t a beach at the hotel but one is super close by. What sets this hotel apart is the staff. Wanda at the front desk is amazing. I utilized the message feature on the app to ensure my mom and I were in close proximity of each other. Wanda responded right away BEFORE I even checked in. She remembered both myself and my mom and addressed us by name. We had breakfast at the hotel daily (it was yummy) and the service was fantastic. Leroy treated my mom like a queen and Phil joked with us a ton. It was a great way to start each day. Nita was my housekeeper. I travel a lot for Work and she easily is in the top 2 of my favorite housekeepers ever. She would leave me a note each day! I did have a couple of small problems during my stay, however, they were handled quickly and professionally. I even had a treat and note left in my room. You can check out a beach mat and a cooler each day. This was fantastic for beach days! I can’t say enough good things about the staff here!! We have been home for a week and everyone knows about our experience and they want to visit just to meet Wanda, Nita, Leroy and Phil (along with many others that I didn’t catch the name).

A wonderful stay!

The HGI Wailua Bay was a great place to stay for our 1 week vacation. It's central so easy access to north or south of the island. I had read about some other reviews with parking and our only parking challenge happened on the night we arrived but we parked alongside the hotel on the way to the cottages where there were plenty of spaces. Other than that we had no parking issues. Upon our late night arrival, Cina greeted us with that warm Aloha spirit! Our room was on the second floor (part garden/part ocean view), had 2 queen size beds and a small foldout sofa. It also had a mini fridge, microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. The bathroom had a shower only, plenty of towels (they provided beach towels too) and was spacious enough for a couple. We were given two daily mai tai tickets for our 1 week stay, had access to a 2 hour (one time use) bike rental that was located about 5 minutes away, cooler and beach mats, fitness room, etc. There is a restaurant on site that does have some gluten free menu options and a lobby bar. There is live entertainment 2 nights a week and during the day they have a local artist in the lobby selling their goods. The hotel has two pool areas and a heated hot tub. There are not a lot of lounge chairs but that didn't seem to pose a problem for our stay as there was always room or at times it was just us by the pool area. We didn't find there to be a lot of disruptive noise while in our room, there was some rooster sounds but that didn't bother us. It was nice to open our window for our second floor room and breathe in that ocean air. The room also has blackout curtains and a semi-sheer curtain. This hotel does not have its own beach but Lydgate State Park is within 5 minute walking distance. There is also a really nice walking trail alongside the beach and they do have a lifeguard station. If you walk along the path you will find a very large walking castle that is fun for adults and not just kids! The beach area can have a lot of drift wood but hey, that's mother nature for you. The local community does their best for clean up and besides you're in a tropical location with blue sky and sunshine so just enjoy it! There are 2 swim/wadding areas that are enclosed with rocks that are great and safe to be in when enjoying the water. All in all this was a great place to stay! The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was clean and spacious, the hotel has a close beach near by and it's a central location on the island. My only recommendation is to add in safes to each room. For non US travellers who need to bring passports and other valuables it would provide some peace of mind to lock up those items securely. Having to take your valuables to the front desk just isn't the same.
