A well run facility
This property is very old but the maintenance of the property is good. We had two problems with our room (slow drawing sink and a tv that quit working). Both were attended to very promptly. The property is very big and easy to get lost.
A lovely resort!
This property is stunningly beautiful! We had a wonderful relaxing time here and really enjoyed this Marriott. There was nothing to complain about here! Rooms were great, staff was great, scenery was just beautiful. This is a definite yes!
Last leg of 10 day vacation and clearly the best location of our trip. The Marriott spared no expense in making this a luxury resort with beautiful pools, beach access and comfortable room. Just the perfect place to relax or use as a base to see the sites.
We booked a room here at the last minute when we arrived in Kauai too late to drive to our reserved hotel. The front desk was really helpful in reserving a room for us and sending the shuttle to pick us up at the airport, which happened within only few minutes because the hotel is so close to the Lihue airport. The hotel itself is stunning beautiful -- gorgeous gardens, entryway, walkways and lobby. The front desk staff was great. The pool are is amazing to see. The basic king room we booked was attractive and comfortable. The entire staff was nice. The resort itself is really nice, though being in the town of Lihue (which is convenient but not very charming) has its pros and cons. Overall, this appears to be a very nice resort for a Kauai stay.
WORST HOTEL EVER - SAVE YOUR MONEY!
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at and the staff was no better. I was in a "Premiere Ocean View" room which was the only good about this stay- the view! My room was awful, I got physically ill in that room! It was moldy and swampy, it smelled like old wet laundry/mold, the floors were wet from that nasty swampy feeling, the walls were filthy, the sliding door didn't even open properly. My clothes were damp from just sitting out. I contacted the front desk about the moldy/swampy issue and they were no help. This felt like the forgotten room that no one used unless they had to. Nobody from the front desk or maintenance offered to come see what was wrong. They wanted to move me to a room with no view which I declined because I already paid a ridiculous amount for this view and then they finally find a room with the same view (which it was not, it was overlooking a roof) and take it upon themselves to put in a room with 2 beds. This is a romantic birthday week trip, why would you move me without notifying me! I spent half my birthday at the front desk complaining, moving my own bags, waiting on housekeeping, such a waste! So I paid all this money to basically stay in a MOTEL! I reached out after my stay and the staff was still no help. I am so upset that my Hawaii vacation ended this way! Honest opinion STAY AWAY! Spend your hard earned money somewhere else!!!
