Discover Poipu Beach's newest playground at the 391-room Sheraton Kauai Resort. A $16 million revitalization has brought new energy to the guest experience at this 20-acre retreat. A modern, refurbished entry leads to the beautifully landscaped open-air Ocean Courtyard lounge. Adorned with tiki torches and six conversation areas - three with fire pits - it's the perfect spot for cocktails under the stars.

Sheraton Kauai Resort's 391 rooms, including its 11 suites, are housed in eight buildings no higher than a mature coconut tree. Grouped together in three different locations, the room categories are identified according to their primary view: Garden Wing, Ocean Wing, and Beach Wing.

The expanded, multi-level pool sits just above the beach and is lined with eight private cabanas equipped with chaise lounges, a flat-screen TV, and ceiling fan. Lava's on Poipu Beach, the resort's new open-air restaurant and beach bar, is just steps away from the pool and ocean. Rum Fire is the island's newest hot spot, serving up nearly 180-degree ocean views from all 240 seats. The innovative Rum Fire menu features Hawaiian cuisine with global influences.

Kauai is a wonderland of outdoor activity and adventure, and Sheraton Kauai Resort serves as your base camp. Naturally, given the perfect oceanfront location, you will find unlimited beach activities right outside your door. Scuba and snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and beach cabanas are available at the Activity Center adjacent to the Ocean Pool. The resort offers two swimming pools: a brand new oceanfront pool and a tranquil garden pool. You also have access to a fitness center and a news/internet library. Excellent shopping and numerous local attractions are within walking distance.

Best Hotel in Kuaui with the worst restaurant (Rumfire)
DAVID E.
Sep 04 2017
You just can not get a better Hotel/Resort from the check in, conceire Roxy was the best, Maid service, to the breakfast buffet, Rental car agent and the Valet { they were great}. This Hotel was on point everyday of our vacation. We loved it and will be back!! The Restaurant lacked pizzaz! Food was mediocre at best it just wasn't what you would expect from an SPG hotel!

This was one of many packages that we have booked through Apple vacations. I was a travel agent and use Apple for 23 years personally. This, by far was the worst resort that I have been too. The trip began with a delay in our flights which we totally understand. Unfortunately during the flights been delayed our luggage was lost. After two days without our luggage, and the girl at the front desk when we checked in Who just didn't care that we have been trying to get there for the past 36 hours. She informed us the room that we had rented (because we couldn't make it to the hotel the night prior because of the flight delay) was given to another couple. I explained that I had contacted via email the concierge four times and they knew that we would not be making it at night because our flight was canceled. Unfortunately she did not care and gave us a room with two double beds's. (King room was requested) after we complained the next morning they didn't move us to a much better room with a king size bed. I was not happy with the resort altogether, especially with it being a Sheraton, the rooms were small outdated, the air conditioning kept going out, the TV reception kept going out. And with no change of clothes we were pretty much stuck in a room until her like it's arrived. At 3 o'clock the day after we arrived I contacted United because we still had not received our luggage. They stated they located the luggage in Los Angeles and we would be receiving our luggage by 9 PM that night. By 4 o'clock the next day we still have not received our luggage and I again called United. The very helpful woman on the phone explained that it was delivered to the Sheraton at 9:23 the night prior. I called down to the bell desk to ask if they had our luggage the gentleman on the phone said he had no idea, but he would go look in the storage area and see if it was there. 30 minutes later a knock on the door and the Bellman was there with our two bags. I threw my hands up in the air and said yes we can finally go to the beach ha ha Ha , Thank you so much for bringing it finally! His reply was nothing he turned around and walked away, no apology for keeping our luggage for an additional 13 hours, no apology for us having to stay in our hotel and wasting yet another day on our vacation that should've started three days prior , no I'm sorry no thank you, no bringing the luggage into my room, he just turned and walked away. My Faith in the Sheraton, and Apple vacations was lost at that moment.

Nice but used to be better.

Eight years ago we had an excellent experience at the Sheraton Kauai so we chose them again. It is still nice--clean,comfortable beds/rooms but they have cut back on the extras. All-inclusive breakfast used to be lavish and outstanding (lots of variety,gourmet/fine dining quality), now it is more like you would find at a good travel hotel.Internet connection is poor (even w/ extra router);we needed to address an office emergency and what should have taken 10 min on-line took several hours. Staff was friendly and housekeeping was responsive to requests for more soap, towels, etc. Next time we go to Kauai we will probably try different accommodations.

I will never use Apple Vacations or return to this hotel

Upon arrival to the hotel, I was informed I did not have a reservation by the front desk staff. The FD manager was summoned, and he was extremely rude. The FD manager did not greet me but instead responded to the FD clerk by saying, "What is the problem here?" I was then told that my reservation had been cancelled two days after booking by an Apple rep, which came as a complete surprise to me. I had received all travel documents in the mail, and the $4200 charge for the trip was on my credit card. I was informed they would provide a room for just one night. I had just travelled 14 hours by plane and was exhausted. The front desk manager was again rude and said, "We will be in touch with your travel agent in the morning, and I suggest you do the same. I called AV as soon as they opened and was informed my reservation had not been cancelled by AV. When I went to the front desk the next morning, I was told that the package that was offered via the AV website was no longer available and should have been informed this by AV. The FD staff was again rude and said I could continue to stay at the hotel. Neither the hotel nor AV apologized to me. I was treated so poorly I will never use AV or return to this hotel.

We spent the 1st week of February at the Sheraton Kauai Resort. From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt special. Everyone was polite and seemed sincerely happy to help us with any question or request. My only negative would be that the walls are thin, but since we had quiet neighbors, it wasn't a big problem. The food is good at Lava's and RumFire and reasonably priced. The staff at both are great (especially James at RumFire). We generally don't return to the same areas because there is so much of the world to see, but we'd consider going back to the Sheraton. We didn't want to leave.

Wonderful resort stay!

Our recent stay here was fantastic! The property looks rather basic from the outside, yet once inside the beauty of Kauai and the warmth & friendliness of its people shines throughout! Rooms are spacious & amenities are pleasant. Restaurant offerings are decent - ate mostly at Lava’s and from the Link cafe. Food tasted great and service was friendly. (Did not eat at RumFire - too pricey for us.). Mahalo Sheraton Kauai!

So far so good

Was really worried based on a few of the reviews I read, but checked in yesterday and so far my expectations have been exceeded. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the construction and that we are staying in a garden room. The room it's self is newly renovated and clean but it is a budget room, and that's ok I only plan on sleeping in it. The construction is present but not a distraction. The ocean pool is beautiful, unfortunately the garden pool is closed. The staff so far has been fabulous, we have dined poolside at Lavas and ate dinner at Rum Fire. I preferred Lavas but my wife was partial to Rum Fire. I strongly recommend you become an SPG member before arriving it comes with a few free perks. Don't let the negative reviews scare you off. I will update if something changes.

Construction going on

I don’t know if winter is just the time for remodeling or if we just came at a bad time but close to 50% of the ocean view rooms appeared to be under construction. Add that to the hotel side of the resort construction across the street and you lose a lot of the resort ‘feel’. While we had a good time here, it did not meet the standards of a resort in my opinion. At the pool area, I loved that flags were attached to the back of the lounge chairs so you could indicate you needed bar service (food/drink).

Fantastic 6 night stay

The Hotel and staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. This Hotel on Poipu beach has beautiful views and walkways along the ocean, where you can often see whales jumping in the distance, and a further walk to the State park Poipu beach you will always see turtles and monk seals resting on the beach, pretty cool! Breakfast at the Lava restaurant was very good, convenient to have a nice breakfast and start the day on a full stomach. The RumFire resto has delicious food, great staff and amazing views and had a promo for a free bottle of wine to starwoods members if you order a main !! At check-in the folks were extremely helpful and accommodating despite being full. We had a nice room with 2 doubles and 2 wash basins- very helpful with 4 people sharing the bathroom. The pool is near the ocean and also has a hot tub that can fit about 10 people. I would highly recommend this hotel for families (our children our teenagers that like to tan and snorkel, so I cannot vouch for kid activities) and couples.
