Kauai Marriott Review
ROBERT T.
Oct 12 2017
We were a bit disappointed with the facilities. At check-in, the lobby was sweltering. Fans would help stir the air. Our room was nice but the carpet was frayed, the couch appeared soiled/tired, the A/C grates (fresh air return and air output were filthy as well as the filter), and our tub/shower diverter didn't work properly so water pressure was a bit low plus water poured out of the tub filler which then couldn't drain completely while showering. The engineer quickly changed the filter for the A/C which helped us get cold air to our room but when he wiped down the vent cover, dust flew into the room in big chunks. We had to wait until housekeeping returned in the morning to get it cleaned which meant less than great air quality the first day. When the engineer came back for the tub/shower diverter problem he said he had to wait to fix it when the room was vacant. As a long-time REALTOR, and owner of multiple properties, I found that to be a pretty weak excuse. Most diverter valves can be changed out by removing the plate at the faucet handle. I could understand if he said he needed a day or two to get the part, but not doing anything at all wasn't acceptable. Yes, the front desk offered to move our room but we were traveling with friends and we both were fully unpacked. Moving would have been a huge inconvenience. The hotel is definitely showing signs of wear and deferred maintenance. The jacuzzi's had missing tiles and the grout and tiles were dirty. All in all, not the best experience we've had at a Marriott. My husband and I both traveled extensively, domestically and internationally, for business so we had much to compare it to. It was sad to find this hotel was in need of updating. The frayed carpet in our room was a huge sign that things were being put-off too long. I do want to put in a good word for your housekeeping staff, especially Maritise (hope I'm spelling her name correctly) and the wait staff at Kukui's was also very friendly and terrific.

Everything was great except these few minor things. The prices for food and drinks were more then expected. Drinks were twice if not three times the price on the mainland and the food was twice. not only at the hotel but everywhere. The adventure activities were fairly price and well worth it. Our room was to be pool view. it sort of was. we were on the first floor and able to walk right out to the pool but there was a restroom and towel building directly in front of our room. not much of a view.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Hotel. The pool was awesome, the views are stunning, it has a very nice beach area and you are walking distance to additional restaurants and shopping. There were a few things that could have been better...whoever design the rooms, please put a door on the toilet area! The bathroom door is a slider and doesn't give much privacy. Also we found out the day we were leaving that there is a back parking lot just a few steps from our room. Wish we knew that...for days we parked in the main parking lot and it was an exhaustive long walk! Also, keep in mind that nothing is for free in Kauai...we paid for parking, internet, cabana seating at the pool...nothing is included as a guest, so be prepared. We also found some wonderful local vendors at the hotel, which we bought jewelry, flip flops and original paintings. It was great to support the locals. When we arrived at our hotel on a Friday, we had to wait for our room to be ready. At 4:00 they notified us it was ready and we settled into our room. Afterwards we had been recommended by the front desk to go to Kukui's for dinner as they were having a buffet. We went down and asked to be seated and we were told they didn't have any openings and the next available reservation was at 8:45. Mind you this is a open restaurant and we could see that over 50% of the tables were vacant. I asked her if they could do anything, we just had a 6 hour flight and checked in late to our room...she completely brushed us off and said absolutely not then began to help the people that walked up behind us. That didn't start our trip very well...but overall we loved our vacation and can't wait to go back. But we won't be dining there!

Our room was a garden view, still you can see the pool and ocean from the room. The room came with a small fridge. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the hotel, the housekeeping staff did a great job on our room, and overall hotel staff were the most professional, helpful, and friendly we have encountered in our travels. We were very happy with our choice. The pool is kept at a consistent warm temperature and was very clean. The ocean is right outside the hotel, so very easy access, and actually plenty of shady areas for when you need a sun break. It was an overall great experience.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Marriott Resort, and both times the trip was excellent. The staff was very helpful especially when we asked to stay for the "linger longer" option. We did not have to leave until 6:00 pm, and we did not have to change rooms, so it made a very relaxing day knowing that we had a place to stay as our flight did not leave until 8:45 pm. The entire staff during our stay was fabulous.

Fun for the family

The 1 bedroom unit had plenty of room for our family. The Murphy bed was comfortable for the kids and easy to put away each day. The room would be better with a full kitchen, but we knew it was limited when we booked. Grills were available for use and cleaned thoroughly every day. The pool was very large and the kiddie pool was perfect for the non-swimmers with shallow water and a small water slide. 3 of the 5 hot tubs were only accessible by swimming in the pool to them, which was frustrating. On rainy days they had activities available for use with the family. The beach was never crowded and the waves were not very large because of the inlet. The views from our ocean-view room were great. We took advantage of Bali Hai Photography's complimentary sitting fees for resort guests. He was able to manage the tricky personalities of our young boys that only wanted to play in the sand and water! We recently received our pictures and they look great. After check-out, the hospitality room had lockers for valuables and a shower to use before heading to the airport (although more than one shower would have made for less waiting.) The bell desk allowed us to access our checked bags as often as we wanted. The location was very close to the airport and allowed was "central" to the island activities to the north and south. The resort food and drinks were too expensive, but cheaper options are available nearby (or if you make your own). The Kalapaki Beach Hut was a great option with reasonable prices and good food... and just a short walk from the resort.

Don't expect to be helped by the staff.

Our room is nice but overall the staff,especially at the restaurants are awful! Expect to treated like you're an inconvenience to them. Nobody will tell you things and then expect that you should know them. For example sunday breakfast you need a reservation but it's not posted anywhere and nobody tells you. I won't ever go back and unless you're into rude staff you shouldn't either!

Beautiful grounds and view!

This resort is on a beautiful spot on the beach with nice mountain views as well. There is a walkway along the beach to restaurants/bars and a few little shops. Duke's Kauai is here as well. Restaurants and bar associated with hotel were surprisingly excellent, especially the sushi bar which was very fresh and priced similar to what we pay on the main land. Huge pool and several hot tubs. Close to airport but never heard any airplanes and rarely saw them. Helicopter port is nearby though and they constantly fly over which is a bit annoying. The problem with this hotel is that it is very dated and needs a renovation of the rooms and the pool area. They were doing some work while we were there, but to what extent I do not know. Very difficult to get a good room with a nice view AND a King bed. You had to pick one or the other which was surprising because the resort was half empty as many people bailed on Kauai after the recent flooding. Parking charge is crazy high for no reason. I am not sure why at some Marriott resorts the parking is free but in Hawaii it is not. Anyway, overall we did have a nice time here and staff was great. If they upgrade the rooms I would have no issues recommending to others.

Beautiful Resort

We really enjoyed our time here. While their rooms are average or at least the one we stayed at was average, their pool area and property is beautiful. During their day you can relax by the pool, they also have a bar. Later at night they have really nice hot tubs and fire stations where you can stay warm. Their service is also great.

Stayed here with my wife and two kids and we were really happy with our choice. The hotel staff was really helpful and friendly. The hotel grounds were beautiful, the pools were amazing. We spent time in both pools and had a great time, our toddler really loved the kid pool. It has a slide and it’s only like a foot and a half deep, perfect for little kids. It’s close to the airport which I was kinda concerned about because of the noise, but you don’t really hear the planes. Overall I’d recommend this hotel and I wouldn’t mind staying here again
