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

The staff and resort was spectacular. Tamara who checked us in was so helpful and added a few extra touches that really set this stay apart from others. She sent us a welcome note and gift to our room. Such a slender surprise when we came back from dinner.

The pool was great. There is a pathway and then the beach. The property is a quick drive from the airport ( not so close it's a problem) and to dining and shopping. It is also a central spot to the whole island so you can pick a day to explore each driveable area like Wimea Canyon, Wailua falls and Princeville.

We absolutely loved staying at the Kauai Marriott! Our first time ever in Kauai and we were very impressed with our stay! Beyond satisfied!

Great pool and bay location. Checked in at noon. Didn’t get a room until after 4. Their listed checkin time is 4pm, but there was a suggestion we’d get the first room setup in that 500 room group.

Everyone was very kind and helpful. The property was gorgeous and the food and drinks were delicious. Very unique location in my opinion. Have in the swimming pool so close to the ocean. So much fun!

Incredible resort! Great staff, close to the airport, close to good eating, warm pool, great rooms. They even have a special bathroom/changing area for guests to use while waiting for their flight. Our flight was at night, but we had to check out that morning. They gave us a special key to access the bathroom/changing area, which allowed us to use the pool and go to the beach that afternoon. The bathroom/changing area had free lockers and a shower that was the same quality as the showers in the guest rooms (not like showers at the YMCA). Everything about this resort was amazing.

Beach and pool are easily accessible. Beautiful scenery and very clean and well kept facilities.

I rate this all smiley faces, and it deserves that - this resort was fantastic. Sitting right on the beach with an AMAZING pool and a fantastic kiddie pool. The staff were super nice, we were always met with a "mahalo" or "aloha", and in general - my wife, myself, and our 2 children (4 and 6) really enjoyed ourselves here.
