For being part of the resort bubble, they made the 3 day quarantine pretty awesome.

Wish we picked a different place. Overall, great location, easy check in, parking ample, clean overall. However, room was insanely humid, everything was wet the entire stay. Staff was less than interested in helping, sheets/comforter not great, laundry machine (1 that wasn't out of order) barely worked, TV barely worked/no channels. We don't usually watch TV in hotels but it was very rainy for most of our trip so we found ourselves getting food truck dinners and a bottle of wine in the room... would have been nice to have Netflix login ability, movie channel, or AT LEAST a guide that said what was on TV. To be fair, under different (non-Covid) circumstances, perhaps it would be different but I will still chose a different hotel next time we are in Kauai.

Quarantine hotel without any kitchen supplies at all. Bring your own fork and bowl!

Check-in was very fast and easy. We had a corner room right next to the pool, and not far off from the pool is Lydgate Beach and Kamalani Playground.

The location and friendly staff, clean rooms we will stay here again!

We stayed in one of the cottages and found it perfect for our family. Traveling with a toddler is hard and being in this type of room made it easy to keep her entertained. No walking through halls and using elevators, just step outside. One of the best beaches for kids is less than a 5 minute walk away - protected cove for kids and another for adults. Good snorkling too! Staff is very helpful and responsive. We had an air conditioner conk out on us and they immediately came and replaced it. Overall I would definitely stay here again! Mahalo!

The beach is not part of the property. The beach is actually a state park. So everyone on the island has access. There are continuous buses that bus people to the beach from other resorts and parts of the island. Plus a million local families. All of this horrible crowds the beach. The state park has a pavilion right in front of the ocean few rooms so locals have parties and loud music till late into the night. The Mamahune bar closes at 8pm! Pretty inconvenient to get a drink after 8. I got a call to my room from scam artists claiming they needed my credit card again because the hotels system lost it. I went to the front desk to confirm it was a scam, 3 minutes later I got an automated text claiming to “refrain from bothering the front desk about the scam”. Air conditioner broke the first night. They tried to fix and made us wait all night to see if it was fixed which it wasn’t No accommodations or concessions made to apologize. No explanation of charges or deposit charged to my credit card when checking in.

It was great! Beautiful views, great room, would definitely go back! 🌴🌺🍍

I liked the location and the tiki bar. I didn’t how expensive breakfast was and felt that it should have been included in the price of the stay.

Everything from the welcome greeting to the roosters and cute kitties you make friends with. It’s next to a great protected swim area, a nice state park for strolls and a tiki bar with yummy drinks. I suggest the drink called “dis lava is flowin”. Great breakfast buffet, amazing staff.

Room smelled moldy and musty. Black mold in air conditioner units that were rusted out. Door was torn up and cottages were back by trash dumpsters. Disappointed for the first time in a Hilton.

The hotel has a hospitality room for those who need to take a quick shower after their checkout - amazing! We were able to enjoy an afternoon by the pool and get ready for our flight!

Loved complimentary waters, Mai Tais, fruited water and cookies in the lobby. Liked tiki bar and restaurant onsite. Did NOT like luau Marriott that concierge sold us! It was horrible. Food only so-so. Cheesy show. We left before it was over. Extremely expensive for what you get! Very disappointed in the luau. Otherwise Hilton Garden Inn terrific. We have also stayed at the Hilton at Waikiki. It, too, was terrific hotel. Love Hiltons!

The location was great for us (about 10 minutes from the airport; easy enough to go either north or south), and it was lovely to be able to walk out to the beach in the morning and catch the sunrise.

Location near beach and state park . Central for island
