The room was very nice, the entire staff was very friendly and the property itself was beautiful

What a welcoming staff. Every interaction we had was very pleasant. Very clean, comfortable beds and clean rooms. The setting at Lava Lava Beach Club was right on the beach and we had the opportunity to dine there for breakfast and dinner. The food was fantastic. I would highly recommend a stay here.

Beach, the staff was so friendly and polite and I enjoyed my stay

Nice location! Great food at lava lace beach club. Only downfall is parking is very tight

No AC in room, going in and out of the screens patios attracted a bug i didn't recognize that bit me and the bite site scared me because it swelled up terribly.

Nice Hotel with very nice athmosphere, nice rooms and a nice bar

The hotel is wonderful if you are on a tight budget. Great location! We only stayed for a few hours waiting for our flight. The front desk ladies were great, excellent customer service. Then we went to the restaurant for lunch and the service was just horrible, including the bar.

Our stay @ Kauai Shores Resort was great. The room and overall resort was excellent. The room was clean and the staff were friendly & helpful. The parking was crowded but this is a common problem though out Hawai’i. The Lava Lava Cafe on the premises was quite $$$.

It had a beautiful room and setting right on the beach. There was a great restaurant at the hotel and it extended onto the beach.

Right on the beach! Good price, good vibe. Great overall time on the east side!

The rooms were ok. A bit dated, but clean. The staff are very friendly.

Super convenient to Kapaa, has its own beach, pool and restaurant. The evening music at Lava Lava was so enjoyable.

Very nice, loved the vibe of the hotel. Staff was great. wonderful location. I will be back soon!

Ok hotel on the beach. Good for the price. Chairs on the beach.

Kauai Shores was wonderful. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. They have free valet parking! Lava Lava Beach Club is on property and you can walk to Coconut Marketplace! We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is small making every amenities convenient and the place cozy. Good location, closed to Kapaa which is a nice little town. Food at the Lava Lava Beach Club restaurant in the hotel was good and the restaurant seating is right on the beach. The age of the building makes it unique and charming and things for the most part are tidy and clean but some aspects do need to be updated a bit.
