Kauai Beach Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Expecting to have a nice relaxing time, we ended up sharing the adult Jacuzzi with unsupervised children! Food at their restaurant was horrible and very expensive. Will not return for another vacation.

Beautiful pools, beach right beyond the pools. Great restaurant in the hotel. Good price, affordable for kama'aina too! Only thing, when checking out I noticed a charge from restaurant that wasn't mine. Hotel fixed it right away but I can see how there could be mistakes made. Check your charges before you leave!! Otherwise was a great stay.

Not a good experience. Room had roaches, and the bathroom smelled horrible. Tried contacting customer service and still no response. Wouldn't recommend to anyone

The hotel and property were nice. Restaurant staff were not the happiest bunch. Within 15 minutes after arrival we headed to the pool bar and were met by a bartender who either didn't like his job or us or both. We had sat down to order a couple of drinks while waiting for our room. There were others at the bar but all had been served so we were being patient and gave the bartender some time to get to us. After about 5 or so minutes a couple of people sat at the end of the bar and the bartender walked past us and asked them what they wanted. My wife and I looked at each other and shook our heads. He then served their drinks. Maybe it was because they were native Hawaiian or maybe they were employees there but we sure felt second rate. So we signaled for the bartender to come order our drinks. My wife asked him if he could please wipe off the bar top as there were spilt drinks all over it. He said "well you could have sat anywhere around here but you chose to sit here where it was dirty". He wasn't smiling before, during or after anytime we sat there. Makes one wonder why someone choose their profession. Also, my wife and I think they should rename the place Kauai Community Resort as there were as many or more locals there using the pools and spa's as there were guests. Apparently it's the place to bring the family for free swimming. We had to wear wrist band but I think that was so the staff knew we weren't locals. Sorry but not coming back to this place.

The hotel was nicely renovated, the hotel staff was very friendly. Centrally located. Will stay at this hotel again.

This hotel is beautiful and comfortable. It definitely felt like a 4+ star hotel. Pools were great. A couple of minor problems were resolved quickly (e.g. - screen door had fallen off its track but was quickly re-installed). Maybe it's just the time of year (1st week in March), but it was surprising that the outdoor grill closed at 5:00 and the outdoor bar closed at 6:00. Would have made more use of those amenities had they been open later. Overall a very nice stay, with a great, friendly, accommodating staff.

We enjoyed our stay at Kauai Beach Resort. The room was comfortable, nicely appointed and clean. There was a small balcony which, in our case, looked toward the mountains. Unfortunately it was situated directly over the front entrance of the hotel which meant traffic and human noise at all hours. This was our only complaint. But I expect if one books through a discount service, one cannot expect the best available room. A note on the beach....it was wide and quite nice to walk upon but rocky beginning at the water's edge and extending offshore....so not good for swimming. However there were 3 swimming pools equipped with loungers and it was pleasant to relax under the palms. We quite enjoyed the restaurant and bar. The food was tasty and well prepared, and service was good. One thing to note, when considering this property, is the additional charges for parking and resort fees.... $18 and $12 for a total of $30 per day as of Feb 2017. Overall it was a good base from which to explore Kauai, and after 3 weeks of travel, provided a place to take a day or 2 off to relax and rest.

Nice facility with a pleasant and centrally located pool area. The beach is directly accessible however the red flag was up during our whole stay. The pool bar and housekeeping staff were very nice and helpful. Our experience with the staff at the reception and at the main restaurant was mixed. This is an area for improvement. Two evenings in a row a wedding was organized at the facility. The first one create no distraction, however the second one generated loud music until 10:00pm which is not acceptable. Furthermore we had received no advanced notice from the hotel to advise and apologize for the noise.

Great location very close to the airport. It was a bit big for my ideal hotel, but staff was helpful, and room and bed were very good. Wish we'd had time to use the beautiful pools.

Great value, excellent facilities, friendly staff, only missing piece is a swimmable beach.

It really does look like the pictures. I would absolutely stay here again. The only thing i didn't like was the food quality(breakfast not good) and the food selection in the restraint at the hotel. But it's on a beach, so if you love sea food it's great. The whole staff is great, really nice. The pools and waterfalls at the pool are incredible. Ooo for those who have never been to Hawaii, you don't get handed a flower lei at the airport. But the hotel proves the flowers and a nice guy shows you real quick how to make one on Wednesday mornings, pool side. I loved it.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, great food, amazing pool, right on the beach.

Good stay! Beach is beautiful and pools are clean. Night life could be a bit better.

My husband and I stayed here for a week long vacation. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The resort is close to the airport, but secluded enough to just get away and relax. There were lots of wonderful amenities, pools, restaurants, spa services, convenience store, car rentals, free airport shuttle, free DVD rentals, and more. Honestly the only thing I didn't like were the pillows in the room, and that was overwhelmed by everything else being awesome.

Nice resort though no restaurant here. Our group had 7 condos total. Ours was same price, but lacking in basic kitchen amenities. Suggest choosing another unit than #1557

We stayed at a higher end, more expensive hotel a few nights before , which you would expect texceptional service, but I have to say that the staff at Kauai Beach Resort showed more "aloha". From Valet to Shave Ice shack, everyone was very friendly. The only suggestion I would have is to either have pool service for guest, be it food or beverage. If not, then provide cold water in a cooler or allow guest to bring their own.

Very clean hotel with a beautiful pool. Mountain view ground floor room was magical. I loved the view and privacy of patio and sounds. Some of the hotel needed a bit of refreshing but it did not take away from experience. At the time we were there they were redoing the entrance. Bed was good but not excellent. The hotel was very clean. I would and do recommend this resort!

it was a fantastic place to stay! we will be returning!

The hotel picks you up at no charge with a shuttle from the airport. The staff is very nice. The place is absolutely beautiful. The pool is great and the hotel is just feet away from the ocean. The chickens were interesting to see everywhere at Kauai and made for funny stories. The food was okay at their main restaurant, the dessert we had was delicious! (Mango Cobbler) We were on our honeymoon so they gave us a free bottle of champagne when we dined at the restaurant that we were able to take back to our room since we didn't finish it. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Overall had an amazing experience in Kauai, would 100% recommend to stay here.

The oceanfront room and the beautiful beach made our stay at Kauai Beach Resort a memorable one. The most outstanding feature for us was the incredible (the BEST ever) kiddie pool. It is the one of three pools closest to the ocean and is completely sandy inside the pool and out. Our two-year-old reveled with the bucket and shovel provided by the resort as we sipped mai tais and shave ice and enjoyed the truly delicious grilled fish sandwiches at poolside. We had booked one night at the resort to be near the airport. We were wowed by our experience at Kauai Beach Resort and will definitely make it a larger part of our stay next time.
