Reviewed 12 September 2014

The Kauai Beach Resort is worth considering if you get a low rate, but we probably wouldn't stay again. The best feature is the nice pool area and pleasant grounds and lobby. We booked a garden view room, and we faced the hotel driveway (some noise at night). The room was fairly small and run-down, with peeling wallpaper, very scratched...

A nice surprise to receive an upgrade to an ocean view room. 10 minutes to the airport and 45 minutes (traffic permitting) to anywhere else on the island. Pleasant room. Our package included parking otherwise it's $17/day.

Hotel is well located for the airport, Lihue and Kapa'a if you have a car. The hotel is clean but could do with some renovations to keep it up to standard. Our patio doors only opened and closed with a struggle and the room needed re-decorating as did some of the public areas. The gardens and pools were well maintained....

The room was comfortable, with a desk and a chaise lounge, as well as a coffee maker, mini fridg and the other standard mod cons. We did not like extra charges, however. Internet in the room was $12 or so. To print our boarding passes was extra, to use the business center computer was an extra charge. Fortunately using the...

Once again suckered in by good prices. Beach is unusable, resort pool which is only redeeming quality is under construction indefinitely , whole family here no children's pool no slide no shallow beach pool. Rooms are outdated with no views. Learned why resorts submit rooms to Travel zoo

My wife and I travel quite often. We were pleasantly surprised how nice and inclusive this resort was. Not that it was a "all inclusive resort" but it had everything one needed to just stay and relax. It will definitely be one of our top choices next trip to the best island in Hawaii.

I've stayed here twice; many years ago and had a wonderful experience and then over labor day weekend. My friends liked our rooms and the property but the service was either really poor or good. It made such an impact that I would not recommend it. For those who want details: Valet who told us that shuttle ran until 12am;...

Great location at a reasonable price! The view in the morning from the beach was amazing! The beach is a little rocky and you can't swim in it. I would recommend bringing river shoes.

This is the second time we've stayed at this resort. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean, great views of the beach and pools and it's close to the main city. They also have three large pools. One has a slide and you can't beat the beach location!!
