The resort is located in a park-like setting with stunning views. The decor is pleasant, the staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed at a three-room unit with lovely views of the harbor. Unfortunately, our unit also faced the entrance into the underground garage and the daily noise from delivery trucks backing down the driveway (BEEP--BEEP-BEEP) or the truly mind-numbing noise of refrigerator trucks running their engines for extended periods of time was decidedly not conducive to enjoying your balcony. Adding to this avoidable noise pollution was the regular noise of helicopters who (sometimes in less than 5-minute intervals) would fly directly overhead. The resort is located very close to Lihue airport--planes land and depart with high frequency during the day, and the noise is especially acute at the lovely pools facing the ocean. Mercifully, if you keep your balcony doors or windows closed, you will not hear these noises. But if you are looking for a tranquil resort experience using the outdoor spaces, at the very least ask for a unit far away from the delivery truck route.

We went for a long walk from a nearby hotel and ended up at the entrance to the lobby with a breathtaking view over 2 cascading infinity pools looking over the ocean with the the Ninini Point lighthouse. We then asked for more info and a week later stayed for 4 days. Absolutely fabulous. The quality, warmth has us committed to coming back.

Quiet, nicely furnished, clean, friendly stuff and great food! The only downside is no direct beach access but beautiful views. There is a beach in front of the Marriott. Nicer beaches require driving. Would stay at Timbers again.

We stayed in a three-bedroom residence with 3 couples and had an amazing week. The property is lovely, but your Timbers staff is a big reason why. From all the front desk staff, both day and night, to Brian, Cliff, Chad in the gym, Mica in the restaurant and pool, RJ making omelets, and of course, farmer Cody (and his co-worker Samuel who we met when we didn’t have enough lettuce for dinner one night) . They are the secret sauce to making your place somewhere you want to come back to. We rode bikes several times around the property, which was enjoyable after those big breakfasts. But perhaps the most memorable part of our stay, including activities around the island, was the visit to the Timbers farm. We ended up with an almost two hour tour (probably because we asked so many questions) that left us wowed and in awe of taking an abandoned golf course and turning it into an organic farm, where you can take the produce back to your residence and cook it up into an amazing dinner as we did several evenings. Farmer Cody was so enthusiastic about organic, self sustainable farming and the way he tries to grow and cultivate his crops on Kauai-he’s truly a gem! The lettuce, radishes, carrots and assorted herbs tasted unlike any farmers market produce we have ever had. We dined at the farm to table dinner afterward at the restaurant and we were so excited to see some of the produce we’d seen in the field a day earlier on the menu that night. Thank you so much for a memorable stay!

The property is beautiful with pools overlooking the ocean. The rooms are modern and large and housekeeping is great. The GM, Kevin, is doing a great job with the property and the staff. A few of the front desk people were exceptional. Everyone is very friendly.

Our 2 bedroom unit was incredibly tastefully decorated, well organized and extremely comfortable. The infinity pool was so inviting and relaxing. We enjoyed every minute spent in the actual unit and actually wished we had had more free time to spend there!

You. An not go wrong here. Place is huge rooms have great detail, views are perfect. Go take some bikes and swing by the farm on property. Staff friendly and you will want to come back. Whales from room and pool, even a jet show at airport. Don’t let airport complaints play a role, you hardly notice.

I rarely write reviews but felt I need to warn people who are looking for a quiet Hawaiian vacation that this hotel is very loud due to the proximity to the airport and both planes and helicopters taking off frequently (sometimes a few an hour, sometimes it feels like every few minutes). The rooms are wonderful, great layout, great views, and its a beautiful property right at the water with gorgeous views everywhere you look, but it was really disappointing how loud it was and for that reason alone we will not return.

Our time at the Timbers Kauai was the trip of a lifetime. We are travel snobs -- and we left the Timbers wowed! Our experience began before we landed in Kauai. Michele on the Timbers team worked with us to make sure everything was waiting for us after a long day of travel. At check-in, we were greeted with a tropical cocktail which set the vibe for our entire 11-day stay. Our Maliula suite was spectacular, with phenomenal views, plush beds, bathrooms to die for and a decked out kitchen. We spent all our time on the lanai which had stunning views. The pool may be the best we've ever experienced - two infinity pools that look out on breathtaking vistas of the Pacific. We ate many meals at Hualani’s, with farm-to-table dishes that were phenomenal. By the 2nd day, the service team felt like family. The concierge arranged for a bike to be delivered upon our arrival. The bike trails around the farm were a delight, and the fitness center was handy on the occasional rainy day. The resort does a great job of offering luxary service in a warm, comfortable (not stuffy) manner.

Yesterday, on my birthday, I received the most amazing service from the staff at Timbers. I want to particularly acknowledge Kaylee at Hualani's who offered fantastic wine and meal suggestions. The food was amazing and the property is beautiful, but Kaylee made the night the most special. I truly appreciate people like her who go the extra mile to help create a memorable experience. I would also like to say a special thank you to Mel at the front desk who also provided superb service! I will definitely return to Timbers when I come back to Kauai!
