Kauai Shores is a great hotel for any visit to Kauai

The staff at Kauai Shores is very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, the room was clean and well kept. Additionally, the entire staff was incredibly friendly. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who visits the island of Kauai.

Could be much improved

Rooms on picture website are dreiging. Room was greasy,doors and everything sticky.Could use a good painting and cleaning. Also hard to charge your phone and the outlet in bathroom was loose.Beds hard and blankets to short. Staff at lobby not really friendly. Pool very small.Beach could be egalized. Restaurant lava beach not so good. Food looks good but the food was tasteless and expensive.Only the chili Fries with happy hour tasted really good. Cocktails where tastefull. Location was very good. Coconut mall close for dropping. Abc store has fresh food and sandwiches and wraps. Tasted better then the restaurant. Pay a little bit more for a better hotel. We visited a few hotels for lunch with tours and the difference was to big.

Great except no room service

I thought the experience was great! I loved being right on the beach, the pool and grounds were clean, we appreciated the activities (sandbag throw, free bike rentals, yoga, hot tub), and the free water, and a great restaurant. The only downfall was that we never got room service. I know I was billed for it, but I never received it. That was the only thing that took a 5 star experience to a 4.

Looks like tin sheds

Our rooms were supposed to have sea views,but we were at the back of the property with no inkling of the sea.we were next to the rubbish tip so very noisy,especially early morning with carts being driven in and out constantly.the food was ok but very expensive,and place extremely noisy.

We loved staying at Kauai Shores! Our room overlooking the beach, garden, and pool was wonderful. We could hear the nightly live music from the hotel's Lava Lava Beach Club just across the lawn from our room. The staff was exceptional. The only reason that I didn't give them a 5 star rating is because the common areas were worn and dated. However, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND this quaint hotel on the beach to everyone!
