    We are here now. We are enjoying the beautiful island of Kauai - everything is beautiful and the green is just so green and amazing .. however, our stay is 1-2 stars at the most. If you like people to follow thru, this is not your place to stay. If you'd like people to care about your concerns, don't come here. I'll give you 4 situations that we found ourselves in and front desk couldn't care less... Friday around 11am walked to front desk and asked about a possible upgrade - truth is, room is very small and even though they say ocean view, it's mostly pool view and not much of an ocean ... I was told that they will check availability and someone will call me with options... no one called back so I called (this time) Saturday - front desk start looking while trying to help other guest, asked for my phone number, promised a call, Sunday night, no call came through. Also, Saturday night around 5:45pm stopped by front desk on our way to dinner and requested 4 regular towels for our bathroom. Was told sure no problem. Returned to the hotel at 9pm, no towels. Left hotel for a tour at 6:15am this morning (Sunday), stopped at front desk, asked again for 4 bath towels, was told sure no problem. We got back to the hotel at 2pm (came back from an ATV tour, super dusty and dirty). Room was not done yet which was no problem but still no towels... took a shower anyway and used blue towels that we haven't exchanged yet since Thursday and stopped to the front desk and was kind of mad about the entire situation. Was asked about my last name only to be told that they don't have a reservation under my name They looked bothered that I wanted to talk to them- 3 people there... came back into the room at 5pm, we have the towels... I guess you have to ask now and maybe in 24 hours your request will be granted.. still waiting on the call about cost to upgrade ... lastly, if you are interested in getting anything by the pool, don't bother waiting on the waitress serving around.. it will take you a while. You are better off going to the bar and getting it yourself... we will not be back...

    Complete And Utter Dump

    This place was a complete and utter dump. This used to be an Aqua Aston property and was completely misrepresented to me at the time of advanced reservation. The rooms are filthy, insect ridden and in decay with damaged walls and rusty door frames. The beds are not comfortable. The bathrooms are in rough shape as well and the tile grout is filthy. The pools are slimy and dirty. No beach to swim at either. The management doesn’t care about any room issues either and will not work with you whatsoever. We left after one night because of a late arrival from the airport.

    So far absolutely amazing!

    Just got here, the resort definitely looks way better than the pictures online, super friendly staff and the room has an ocean view, nice restaurants and super convenient store inside the resort. Pools are great and just a few steps from the beach.

    Relaxing and beautiful KBR

    Stayed here in July 2019 for about 8 nights, in a deluxe ocean/pool view room. We were very happy with our view, and the room was large and comfortable, and clean. We did run into some bumps in the road due to a power outage on the island, which was not the hotel's fault, but caused some inconveniences. The first night we discovered a wet rug in our closet, but the staff responded quickly, found the leak, removed the wet carpet, and it was replaced the next day. Also there were some water issues, I think related to the power outage, because it cleared up quickly. I did find the bathroom was not completely clean and the carpet dirty when we checked in, but I think this could have been due to the power outage, and it was also quickly remedied. The staff was polite and responsive to all of our requests or concerns. The pools are beautiful, and I loved the waterfalls, but I have a strong suggestion that at least ONE of the many pools is designated ADULTS ONLY, and the same for one of the jacuzzis. The pool nearest the beach has the water slide and there were many kids there, but they took over almost every pool. As a pediatric nurse I found it disconcerting how many parents were not closely observing their children in these pools, waterfalls, and jacuzzis, but that's not the hotel's fault. However allowing adults without children to have ONE quiet pool area would be a big bonus! I noticed the Hyatt property does this, and KBR could easily do it and make a lot of people happy. I thought the workout room was fine, it's clean, and didn't expect anything huge. And you're in Kauai, you don't need to spend all your time in a gym. The small spa is nice, it mainly just offers massages and facials, and has a dry sauna. The staff there is friendly and quite good. We enjoyed the cute gift shop and being able to grab coffee and a bite there....although they need to accept chip cards there, I do believe my debit card info was stolen due to the swipe machine in the shop. They are separate from the hotel. We liked the firepit but never really sat out there because we were always tired after long days exploring the island and wanted to chill out in our room. Our BIGGEST complaint and feedback for management is to FIX the entertainment system related to watching movies. There is no movie channel for the hotel, there's a very NON-user-friendly system to link up your Amazon or Netflix account to the TV. Sounds like it would be cool but it's not. There's NO instructions in the room to do this, and it is not intuitive, not in any way. The remote to control it is just ridiculous. We had to call the staff nightly to come help us with trying to log on and find a movie. KBR, just get a regular movie channel like every other hotel in the world, and charge for rentals if needed. Because the current system is unusable. Much of the hotel has been upgraded and remodeled, but they really need to replace the flourescent overhead lights in the hallways, and they should have ice machines on EVERY floor. I found it annoying to have to walk so far for ice, and some machines were not working. On the positive side we liked having a refrigerator we could use in the room, and the safe. Overall I liked the hotel, the location is great, the value is great, and I would stay there again. Oh, and I enjoyed the beach, it's lovely to walk on, it's just not a swimming beach, but much of Kauai is not for swimming.

    Really disappointing

    Our family stayed here an left after one night. The beach is not safe to go in the water, the pools were full of garbage and slime, the slide was not working, the pool area was dirty and crowded, the beds were okay but the sheets were cheap and scratchy, the wifi was poor, the service was slow and poor, the workout area was worn, dirty and not all the equipment worked. Then to top it off extra charges showed up on our card and after several calls and several promises that someone will return our call to fix the charges it still has not been addressed. The lobby was pretty and the location was okay, otherwise, wow, I haven't had a stay this bad ever.
