I was lucky enough to have a renovated room so I have to say the accommodations were very nice. Big closet, lots of room with chairs to lounge in. I liked the fact that the tv station stays where I let it and doesn't go to some hotel advertisement. Fridge in the room was nice to have. Coffee and tea...

Firstly this is not a 5 star resort , the rooms are good , bathrooms are dated but they were upgrading some rooms whilst we were there. However in regards to value for money it is exceptional value. Great pool area , good restaurant and bar area and close to the airport and town . Shuttle buses to the airport,...

The ground were nice the food was good, and the staff was excellent! The staff was the best part of the hotel: thoughtful, kind, and went out of their way for us. They welcomed us on our honeymoon with a bottle of champagne. Good location next to airport.

Overall, the facility was clean, the staff were friendly, and the pools were beautiful. However, the facility is run down. The elevator was out of service more than once in a single weekend and the wall paper in our room was peeling off. On the plus side, our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large....

Like most reviews here - there are positives and negatives. The Good: 1) Customer Service 2) Elaborate Pool with water slide and water falls 3) Location to North/South activities 4) Towel Cards (I actually like this because it prevents people from using up all the towels needlessly) The Bad: 1) Location - apart from the above mentioned positive, otherwise, this...

Our experience of check in was very poor with a member of staff emphasising additional charges of Resort fee and local taxes that are not headlined and in fact differed from those on booking.com. Pool towel cards are issued with a high charge threat if these or the towels are not returned on check out. On exchange of the towel...

Stayed here one week in July, It is a very nice hotel. Centrally located so it is convenient wherever you go. I had dinner in the dining room twice and the food and service were excellent. The hotel is big so keep in mind that the parking lot is also big and you have to walk accordingly. The pool is...

This resort is gorgeous with all its waterfalls, pools and tiki torches lit in the evening, however, if you want to go swim in the ocean or lay in the sun here, this is not the place for you. It is too rocky and the beach is very narrow. You will need to drive about 3 miles to the closest...

We booked this hotel knowing we only had 2 nights in Kauai which meant we just wanted somewhere with a good location and didn't care too much for the facilities as we were planning to be out and about all day.
