This is a beautiful resort on the beach, and easily reached by car from the airport. We loved every aspect of this resort. Everyone on the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay here on a future trip to Kauai.

Loved the location, cleanliness, staff were all amazing. Only thing I didn't like, but can't really help, is the cost of food and drinks... pretty expensive.

The lodgings were comfortable and conveniently located. The staff was helpful and friendly. We were especially impressed that they had a hospitality suite we could use the evening after we checked out, so that we could take a shower before catching the red-eye flight that night. We would stay here again. It was hard to leave at the end of our stay.

Directly on the beach, boutique resort with brand new high end rooms and experience. The best of the resorts in the area, especially if you don't have kids and are looking for a nice relaxing stay but still close to the beach path.

Beautiful! The staff was so nice and very helpful and our room was comfortable and clean!

We experienced wonderful, friendly service at this attractive, comfortable, and quiet resort located in a beautiful part of Kauai. Dinner at onsite Red Salt was excellent; breakfast was good. The room was on the small side, but nicely designed. We would stay here again.

Part of the problem may have been that being older than 60 they put us in a handicap room. So there were lots of grab bars in the bathroom but no towel bars. So we were forced to use these to hang towels. Sink area had 2 inches around sink to put stuff and no shelves or pother landing zones. The closet only had a low hanging bar. So I had no place to hang my dresses. We should have asked for a different room, We are normal people why stick us with this inferior room we didn't need or ask for.

I love everything here. I wish I can stay there a little longer. The bed is very comfortable and the is very clean. There is no microwave in the room and they brought one to our room. Nothing to complain here, the staff the room the service that they provide was above and beyond.

The Ko’a Kea is a lovely hotel with a very attentive staff, a wonderful restaurant and gorgeous views. The pool and spa are a great size. The bar staff around the pool are Always available and helpful. We loved it and we will go back.....soon.

We had a lovely time at the Koa Kea. The staff was very helpful and the room very cozy. The amenities were excellent!

Amazing hotel experience. Staff was very welcoming. The pool/beach area was beautiful. The room was clean and artfully decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Overall, really great experience. Would definitely stay here again.

What an amazing place. There is a nice little beach behind the hotel and a larger beach a short walk away. The hotel is also walking distance from several shops and great restaurants. The staff is second to none and they go out of their way to make sure you're happy. Also, there weren't any kids there during our stay which made for a quiet and relaxing experience.

The staff went above and beyond to make me feel pampered (I'm not used to being pampered)

I'm ready to go back. Every day was perfect. Close to the beach and great staff

Amazing hotel! Most comfortable bed on the island.

The hotel staff were incredible from the check in staff to the valet parking staff. The room was nice and very clean. The location is great and the hotel had mostly adults which was what we were looking for. My main complaints: The garden view lanai had no privacy in that is was open to the people in the rooms on each side of us. This was disappointing. The other comment I have was the price of the drinks. Coming from San Francisco we very familiar with pricey dinners/drinks but $17.00 for a coconut mojito seemed excessive compared to other bars in walking distance from the hotel which served same type of drink for around $12.50-14.00. Again, the bartender was exceptional but the prices seems inflated beyond the areas price point for drinks. The resort fee of $26.00 was annoying but that seems to be the norm on the island. Overall I would stay there again but wanted to give a balanced honest review.

This was the best experience I've ever had at any hotel. The staff was so incredibly kind and helpful throughout the entire trip. When I wanted to ship a few items I purchased to my home instead of carrying them on the flight, they helped facilitate everything and ensured my things were safe. The hotel room was spotless, spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Great view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. I'll come back here many, many more times.

Other than spotty wi-fi, this hotel/resort was perfect.

Hotel restaurant was fabulous! The hotel service was top notch. Very romantic and quiet. My husband and I our counting the days until our next visit!!
