How to Get There
We stayed here 9 years ago and when deciding to visit Kauai again chose to give this resort a second chance. Not much has changed in 9 years, the pool is great the beach is fun and the decor is the same (asian inspired). None the less it was a clean and fun place for my family to stay.
We had two connecting rooms on the sixth floor and one of them was a handicap room. Because we wanted connecting rooms we didn't complain and accepted the room. What I found odd during our stay was why would someone with mobility issues want to be on the sixth floor? If there was a fire or emergency and the elevators weren't available how would you get to safety? Also, none of the doors would open easily. The door to the bathroom took some strength as did the door to the Lanai. Our connecting room had a much easier door to open for both the bathroom and the lanai. The shower head in our room (2110) was a handheld one that didn't stay on the stand so it was difficult to shower. My husband actually got one of my daughters hair bands and "fixed" it so we could wash our hair without the shower head dancing on the way down the pole. No we didn't mention this to management because we didn't stay in the room much and didn't want to move once we were settled in.
Also, you have to be careful with the towels. Apparently people were stealing them so you are given towel cards and they are worth $25 if you lose one. Each card gives you two towels so its kinda a hassle. I must admit this is the first time having to do this so I'll assume there is a reason for the inconvenience of having to guard your towels and card. The towels are efficient but not worth $25.
The staff seemed friendly but I didn't get the Aloha vibe that I've received in other resorts in Hawaii. I wouldn't say they hated their job but it was just a job for them and due to the resorts layout you really don't interact with them much.
I would stay here again due to the location and beach. It wouldn't be my first choice and if I was having mobility issues I would make sure I wasn't in the room we had unless you have brute strength to open doors and a way to escape during an emergency. Seriously I'm still puzzled why this room was on the sixth floor and not the first. It was clean and comfortable and honestly we didn't stay at the resort much.
The staff at the resort go above an beyond to make your stay an absolute joy. The pool is fantastic and the grounds are breathtaking. Only 4 stars because of two things. The rooms, hallways, and elevators are tired. Drastically need upgraded. Weird thing, I think, you are not allowed to take the beach chairs on the beach. If I’m at the beach I want to sit on the beach not on a grassy knoll. They say it’s because the beach is public. All beaches in Hawaii are public. Don’t get it, however it was a great stay.
four night stay with my wife and daughter nice cozy beach and a variety a restaurants on sight and nearby within walking distance. Staff is very helpful and the only marriott related problem I had was with the room size. Also very awkward sliding door to bathroom ! Nice golf within walking distance and free shuttle to airport. Pool service was good as was the pool itself and the beach. Serious problem with TRIPMASTERS who booked our package. They mispriced our room and then told the hotel to collect the additional $200 from us at check in. We appealed and TRIPMASTER committed to reviewing within 4-6 weeks ! DISHONEST !
