Great Beach near airport
rockedge, CA
Wed Feb 01 17:00:22 EST 2017
The grounds are immaculate and a very large and impressive pool. Plenty of activities to keep you engaged including a great golf course and hiking. Good restaurants close by. Overall a great experience, you really don't have to leave the resort.

Good Choice on Kauai

We lucked out on this place - right next to the airport with convenient shuttle through the golf course back to the hotel - lovely property, gardens, pool and right on the beach. Lots of interesting places to walk to. Easy car rental for day trips. The pool-side bar and restaurant were so good, that we rarely ate off-site. Happy hour is especially fun and the Friday and Saturday Dinner specials were great. Buffet breakfast was expensive, so may want to try off-site. The pool is very cool, so people tend to get in and out quickly. Our room had a view of the service entrance and noisy vehicles and beeps. We asked to move and they said they would let us know when something else was available, but they did not.

Almost perfect overall, but . . .

There is really nothing at all wrong with this big, beautiful, sprawling, resort that has everything you could ever want right on site, except the fact that it is big and sprawling and the pool, (as reported elsewhere,) is largely useless. The views are amazing, everywhere you turn, from the mountains to the beach to the ocean. And there are hidden gems here, everywhere. It is a massive property, and we explored it and were stunned by the beauty. The staff here is superb, and the restaurants are very good. There was not one single thing that stood out that was a bother. But, everywhere you go is a massive hike. The walk from our room to the well-hidden fitness room was a workout in itself. You could really build up an appetite walking to the restaurants, as well. And God forbid you do not valet your car. The parking lot is an even farther hike. We are not young, but we are fit, so none of this was a problem. If you cannot handle all the hiking, you might want to stay away. We are more interested in sunning than swimming, so it did not matter to us that the pool was always a bit too cold. You can tell just by looking. No one is ever in it. The room was very nice and had all we wanted. The views were stunning. Being in Lihue seemed weird, at first, because it is the main town and not really a resort area. But we really preferred it, because it was exactly in the middle of that long coast road. We could take one day trip west and north to Waimea Valley and all points in between, and we could take one north and east to Hanelei Bay and all points in between. This is the perfect place to stay, and we personally investigated many of the other resorts. It has a great location, for the reason I state. So, if you want to explore the whole island, and if you are fit, and do not care to swim very much, you really should stay here.

GREAT location, but the big, beautiful pool is useless

You can't beat this location. It's on a quiet bay, which kept the ocean swimming conditions calm even on a windy day with gusts up to 40mph. Decent surfing here too. It's also right by the airport (you hardly hear any airplane noise) and gives you convenient access to all areas of the island. The problem is, they have this enormous, beautiful pool that no one uses because it's ice cold. Apparently it's an ongoing issue and I felt like I was lied to by the hotel staff. One day the pool felt considerably warmer so I asked one of the pool guys about it and he said the heater was fixed. Well, according to a longtime MVC owner we talked to, the pool doesn't actually have a typical heater. They pump the water to some kind of generator to save money, which fails all the time. I can't verify if his story is completely accurate, but it's pretty obvious the pool temperature is an ongoing problem at this resort (and the other reviews here support this claim). At a minimum, the pool guy misled me and his response was rehearsed. The next day, the pool was cold again. We also had a small problem with a noisy ice maker. No big deal and they offered to give us a different room. The lady took my cell phone number to let us know when our new room would be ready, but we never heard back. Eventually I went to the front desk where a guy proceeded to argue with me about a message they left me. He said they don't call cell phone numbers (so why did the other lady ask for mine?) and that they left me a message in my room (there was no message in my room). It just seemed silly considering the message didn't really matter -- we just wanted to know if our room was ready. I'm usually not one to complain so I just told the guy to forget it and we kept our room. No reason to get stressed out on vacation. Overall, a nice, convenient resort, but the pool is a problem and apparently so is their customer service (at least in my experience).

Nice location, nice place, but average and somewhat dated

Maybe we were spoiled after just leaving the Andaz Maui in Wailea, but this was a nice hotel, just nice. A bit dated and average. Not to say that it didn't serve its purpose, it was a comfortable stay in a good location, no complaints, but that's it.
