    Perfect location

    The hotel is on the beach, has a restaurant on the beach and has two pools. By which to relax. A short walk to the coconut marketplace will get you everything you need. I will return as soon as I am able.

    Everything you need.

    From the moment we arrived the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our room was just steps away from the "Lava Lava Beach Club" restaurant which is one of the highest rated eating establishments on the island. The atmosphere is casual, our room was clean and fresh, the staff were great and the beach is right there. I would highly recommend Kauai Shores Hotel.

    Accommodating, kind, and thoughtful hospitality next to the beach

    This property has 2 swimming pools, a hot tub, and fronts the beach. When you sit down to eat delicious specialties at the restaurant you are literally facing the bluest ocean water. Staff bends over backwards to anticipate and meet your needs. Live music and hula dancing are presented in the evenings. Rooms are comfortable and clean with separate patios. My family enjoyed everythimg. The only reason I didn’t give this hotel 5 out of 5 stars is that they don’t offer room service. G

    Beach is at your door

    On a short walk passed the pool and hot tub, you are taken away to a beautiful beach. Full service restaurant next to beach, so some bubbly is ready for your walk down the orange sandy bay. Our room was well prepped and comfortable. There was a little bit wall damage in room but I spent very little time in there, so no biggy. A/C and fan worked great in concert. Was real quiet for sleepy time. The grounds were very well kept and everyone was real nice. A little strange parking wise but valet was super easy and helpful. Oh, and a free bike rental to boot! If you're looking for something with the newest trends and fashions, this aint it. Don't get me wrong, the rooms are very well decorated and comfortable, and a good deal for the money, just not out of the box new. Definitely stay here again!!
