Beautiful property

Gorgeous property on a nice beach.
The drive through the Monkeypod trees to the entrance is beautiful. The hotel is very upscale but our room was very reasonably priced. There is a very nice pool and a good beach and the hotel offers equipment, boards and lessons - a lot to keep you busy. The surrounding restaurants and shops were
also great. It’s just a few minute drive to the airport but the local bay and mountains make you feel like you are far away from Lihue.

Such a beautiful vacation

Awesome vacation! So nice to really chill out. Check out the view from our room. They had a really great luau and service was top notch! You have to do a helicopter tour while your here best way to see the island.

Nice Hotel But Very Lacking

I was here for the Kauai Writers conference, and I really just wanted to hang out, relax, and not have to drive anywhere so I didn't want a rental car. Two years ago this conference was held at another Marriott--Courtyard Kaua'i at Coconut Beach.-it wasn't as fancy but the experience was magical. The beach went on for miles, and there was a grove of coconut trees, and walking on the beach was quiet and just lovely. The beach extended past other resorts, but it was completely quiet and shielded by the coconut trees--and set way back from the hotel properties. You could also see the sun rise over the ocean. Plus there were two shopping centers within walking distance, with two supermarkets and a natural foods market. So no need for a car or to eat at a restaurant every night, as there was also a microwave for client use. Plus they put out free coffee and tea at about 5am for those of us who went out to watch the sunrise and walk the beach, and it stayed out until the restaurant opened for breakfast.

But this hotel, while looking very posh and lovely in photos, was a real disappointment. It was huge, crowded and noisy. The beach was tiny, and in a bay and wasn't very attractive. Also with questionable cleanliness. You could walk the beach in about 5 minutes, and the boardwalk was noisy with restaurants right on it. No peaceful walks around here, not even early in the morning. The hills blocked the sunrise as well. There was nothing in walking distance, save for a little mall with an ABC store and some junk shops. Wanting you to eat in their overpriced restaurant, there was no "grab and go" which most hotels have (and I travel a lot for business and stay in high end hotels), just a little grill that served some breakfast foods but they made sure to close by 11 am. Their gift shop sold some packaged foods, and sandwiches (nothing I would want to eat), but didn't offer coffee or a microwave--so even if got something to go from a restaurant, I couldn't reheat it. They didn't have any cafe or place to get coffee after 11, except at the restaurant for $6 a cup--plain drip. Seriously.

While the landscaping was pretty, it was overdone--it was kind of like "Kauai Disneyland version." Very artificial looking and not like the natural environment. I wanted to relax in, write, attend my conference but I found this place stressful. Nowhere to walk around, no real beach to walk on, constant people and noise--even going out at 4:30 am to see the sunrise (which you couldn't), the boardwalk was noisy due to the restaurants getting food deliveries and workmen about, etc. I ended up going home a day early, as I was able to change my flight. I hope to be back in Kauai again, but will not be staying here. I also didn't sign up for the Kauai conference again because it will be held here, and thanks, but no thanks.
