    Great family hotel

    We stayed for 4 nights in 2 rooms near the pool & beach which was very convenient. Rooms were nice, clean and spacious. We were on the first floor and there were roosters every day making lots of noise when the sun came up. There are lots of wild chickens in Kauai and you see them everywhere. They are very loud! Gym was also very clean and modern with a separate room for cardio. The pool is huge with fountains and 5 hot tubs. The beach area is a bit small, but you can walk directly to a few shops and casual restaurants. The biggest issue we had was breakfast. The restaurant where they serve breakfast is incredibly slow and you need to wait a long time for a table. We had to go out to breakfast every morning which was very inconvenient and not good at all. They did have washers and dryers in 1 building which was good for us because we were very muddy from hiking and needed to wash our clothes. There have alot of corporate space for meetings, and there are time share buildings as well. The hotel is 5 minutes from airport.

    Perfect location!

    Just finished a 5 night stay at this hotel and my husband and I enjoyed every second! The hotel itself is beautiful, although some of the rooms could use some small updating. The hotel has events and activities every day, so if we wanted to stay around the hotel, we'd still be plenty entertained. The staff was all wonderful as well. We called and emailed ahead of time to ask for recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We were sent multiple lists of recommended activities and restaurants, some that the hotel could even set up for us. Tanya also sent us an email with recommendations for our anniversary dinner (which we took and it was amazing), and she made she our trip was extra special. The pool is amazing and also has multiple hot tubs surrounding it. The beach is located off of a bay, so the water still has waves, but is much milder for swimming or learning to surf. We also went to the spa while we were there, and it was AMAZING. The hotel is in a great location to springboard out to the multiple activities around the area. I was initially concerned about hearing planes as it is so close to the airport, but there was no issue with flight noise. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for helping us make our first anniversary so memorable!

    A Wonderful Retreat in Paradise

    This Marriott is exquisite! Our rooms, we had two, both had great views of the pool and ocean. We didn’t spend any time at the pool; but it was beautiful to look at. We spent a lot of time at the ocean, which was only steps away from the resort. The rest of the time we spent exploring Kauai with our rented Jeep. I must say that after exploring Kauai all day, it was a pleasure to return home to this very comfortable Marriott resort to rest.

    Nice but outdated

    This Marriott was the typical beautiful Island hotel, with beautiful views, friendly hard working employees and good food. However, the rooms are very outdated. Our room had carpeting that looked and felt dirty. The outlets were basically extension chords that were overloaded. For example, the small refrigerator, microwave and the coffee maker were all on one extension chord and when I turned on the coffee maker it tripped the chord. So we ended up putting the coffee maker on the bed stand to use the extension chord there. Also there was a small loveseat couch that was very old and sunk down in the middle when you sat on it. The Marriott should definitely put some money into maintaining and upgrading these rooms. We will probably not return to this hotel.
