    Great location and property

    This resort is fantastic for families. Situated on the coast, it has a large pool and beach access. Lots for kids to do and it’s really nice and spread out, so you don’t feel it’s crowded. We are here when it’s sold out. They were very kind and accommodating when we requested a room upgrade- great views. Groceries and lots of restaurants just steps away. Very helpful staff. Highly recommend!

    Nice Marriott Benefits

    As Titanium Lifetime we were upgraded to a high floor ocean view room, received breakfast buffet vouchers for our 6 day stay and 2 unlimited refill cups were waiting for us in our room:) Huge perks as the breakfast buffet is worth about 35.00 and cups worth 37.00. Room for sure is outdated....can you say popcorn ceilings? But the view and balcony certainly make up for it. We are in the Kahili Tower, which is a great location. The walk to pool area is very convenient. We did not find parking to be a problem either and not a bad walk to our room. Beach and pool are both amazing. Pool is big enough that it never seems crowded and beach has just the right amount of surf to play in. I like that the chairs are on the grass so you dont get all sandy. They also serve drinks on the beach!! Ate at Dukes twice now, once upstairs and once down below. Food and view are amazing. We went at happy hour with live music then dinner at 4:45 when they open. Time to explore the rest of the island.

    Excellent customer service

    We booked this resort through Costco travel and were not disappointed. The resort is older, but still quite grand and very clean. The pool Is beautiful and kids there went wild for swimming. The most impressive thing to us was the level of customer service at this place. Every single employee of this resort greeted us and acted with kindness. (We went to the North Shore Oahu the following week and we greatly missed the culture of kindness and hospitality that we experienced in Kauai). We upgraded our package to include the daily breakfast buffet. It is worth every penny. The food was fresh and had a large variety to choose from every day. There are a ton of on site amenities. The concierge was very helpful. Overall, we were very impressed with the service and recommend this resort to anyone looking for a beautiful relaxing time.

    Great family destination

    We stayed at the Kauai Marriott Resort as part of a two week trip to Kauai and really enjoyed this leg of our stay. We had reserved an ocean view suite, but were informed that our room was unavailable due to construction. We got upgraded to a top floor ocean view suite due to the situation and our Marriott status which was very nice. The kids really enjoyed the pool, the beach, the hot tubs, and the many games spread around the property. You can spend numerous days at the hotel without ever getting bored or stir crazy. There is so much to do and numerous restaurants on property or within walking distance. Stay here and enjoy!

    Top stay in Kauai

    We stayed at three resorts in Kauai in May19 all 4star or 5star all were great but if we came back more than likely we would stay at the Marriot as it really does tick all the boxes .For a start you can get by with out a car plenty of restaurants and shops with in a easy safe walk so you are not limited to eating at the resorts all the time and you can have a drink with dinner and walk home .The food options at the resort are very good and not overpriced also the pool is great situated right near the beach which at the time of our stay had some fun surf .Errol from the beach boys hire fixed me up with a great board at the time ,thanks. pretty much everything about this resort is good from check in to check out ,by the way we had a high floor oceanfront so good best elevators with hardly any waiting time I have encountered. We will be back hopefully.
