Property is in a great location, convenient to everything. Pool is spacious, water is the perfect temperature, with ample chairs and clean beach towels.

The staff was super nice! The hotel room was super clean. My kids enjoyed the pool so much!

Property has a beautiful landscaping and amenities are great! The only thing they need to work on is rooms remodeling. They are a bit out of age.

Staff was nice and helpful

The property is beautiful! Rooms are clean and the public restrooms are always spotless! Great place to stay! We will be back!

Exceptional service, beautiful resort, great drinks, awesome pool!

It's so Hard to Begin or Pinpoint The whole Property was Immaculate!! The staff were Extremely Nice. We Had an Amazing time..Kauai is such a Beautiful Island...Super Green! Wish we could've stayed longer! So much to do and Enjoyed every moment we were there.. We would wake up and did not have to drive if we did not want to...The Beach was steps away... Or jump in pool if you want ..The Pool was Always warm! Wish we were still There!!

We had the best experience, with amazing views and great customer service! We would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Kauai.

Very pleasant staff . Lovely pool and area . Room was comfortable and TV worked well. Was concerned with renovation in the tower we stayed but ended up to me minimal disturbance. Drink and food service by the pool was a nice service .

Kauai Yoga on the Beach with Anya was the best part!!

This is a gorgeous hotel and the staff were extremely helpful. Gabby and Denny helped me to figure out the transportation piece given the limited transport on the island and were so lovely and gracious while doing so. I wish I had stayed longer.

Love the location, pool, beach, and the quietness of the entire facility.

It is overpriced big time. 5$ dollar water, 15$ cocktails. On any other island at the same level resort you get 10$ cocktails. Basically, they rip you off for everything like some motel6. Breakfast is terrible. Some Caribbean all-inclusive will beat it easily. Bright sides: Pool is awesome and heated (some old reviews were saying it is not heated) Duke's restaurant is great. They are really good at keeping your room clean

Beautiful location. Has everything you could want on vacation. Great food and wonderfully landscaping everywhere.

Loved the poolside ambiance and the staff Super friendly
