What really surprise me about this property is the fact that since the property is in very close proximity to the Lihue Airport, which is super convenient, you CANNOT hear any of the planes landing or helicopters flying overhead when you're inside the hotel room. From poolside, the noise from the planes landing are very, very minimal. Actually, I enjoyed watching the planes land while lounging at the pool! It is definitely a pleasant and peaceful experience while staying at the resort. Breathe taking views of Ninini Point, Nawiliwili Bay, and the nearby Ha'upu Mountain Range. They've been in operation for a year now and staff is still learning the quirks of operating this facility. My only complaint was the fact that the jacuzzi setting was very hot (max). I really felt like a lobster in a boiling pot... That same sentiment was shared among all of us users during that time we where in the jacuzzi.

We just finished a week long stay here and all of us thought the place was stunning. Our 3 bedroom condo on the 4th floor overlooked the pool and ocean. The food and service were all top notch. The staff is also very friendly and helpful with any need. The only negative is that it is under the flight plan for the helicopter tour companies that come by frequently. It bothered me a bit the first day but I got used to it (it didn't bother the rest of the family but if you are sensitive to noise it may bother you). We will be back and highly recommend this place for vacation on the beautiful island of Kauai.

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.
