Comfortable stay

Me and my wife stayed here for our 17th wedding anniversary and could not be happier other than parking. The hotel and employees were awesome but assigned parking would have made things better. I was not the most comfortable using the valet service because there are times when I wanted to go somewhere late and couldn’t because I valet my car. Still a 5 star review because that would not keep me from staying here again.

Great location and convenient to both sides of the island.

A well located property that has been renovated quite well. Very clean and the amenities were more than sufficient for a short stay. The Lava Lava club is a bonus. Thanks for a great stay Kauai Shores.

My wife and I stayed at Kauai Shores hotel last week. It is a great property! The staff was nice and the valet is complimentary which is a huge savings if you stay multiple days . the hotel is located near downtown Kapaa and the airport. Very easy access to the waterfalls, canyon, and hiking trails. Side note for the island: everything shuts down around 9:30 p.m. so its nice and quiet late night. really enjoyed the vibe. No issues with the room, service, the cleanliness, anything. Recommend this property to anyone.

Good place to stay

Enjoyed our time at Kauai Shores. This place is relative to the price you pay. Whilst not the fanciest resort i have ever stayed at, it has what you need and was perfect for our 3 night stay before we picked up our car to explore the rest of Kauai. Everything you need is within walking distance of the resort. Good clean accommodation and enjoyed the food from the Lava Lava Beach club.

My wife and I went to Kaua'i for a much needed vacation with another couple and stayed here at Kaua'i Shores.I have to say this place was beautiful.I loved the landscape of the hotel and the bright colors. The beach was very close to our room.The staff always made us feel welcomed.I loved the free valet ,our room wasn't too far from it .It made carrying our stuff from our daily excursions easier back to our room.It was also nice having the Lava Lava Beach Club on the property for the times you didn't want to go out to eat or to go have a drink. There is nothing like eating right on the beach watching and hearing the waves . We will definitely be back .This place is 15 minutes from the airport and is also perfectly located for those who want to go and see the island.It is like in the middle of all the great must see and do things of Kaua'i.
