How to Get There
After getting engaged at hanakapiai falls earlier, this was the last hotel on our trip. We arrived after spending the day hiking, and really needed a nice shower. Instead the water was luke warm at best and then when we went to dry off the towels were dirty. (See photo). Then they made us wait in the room for new towels and the engineer to come fix the water. The engineer told us they are having problems with the water throughout the hotel and it couldn't be fixed, so instead of just telling us that in the first place we waited over 30 minutes for no reason. Normally I don't check the sheets, but because of the gross towels I decided to look and found dried blood stains on the sheets as well. Absolutely disgusting! We requested a new room and they moved us to a spot right by the parking lot where there was ongoing construction in the room directly below us. Although the staff was apologetic about the situation they only offered to waive the hotel fee, which apparently they were doing for everyone since there wasn't hot water in most of the rooms. We thought this was supposed to be a 5 star resort, but I have had nicer showers and cleaner rooms at a motel 6. I would never return to this hotel, nor would I recommend anyone stay here.
We chose this hotel for our wedding anniversary and were very happy. Perfect spot, beautiful scenery, great location. The hotel is a bit 'tired' and dated but did not deter from our experience. Super friendly staff
We were a little apprehensive in staying here after reading some of the reviews, but after speaking to the hotel we decided to keep the reservation. I am glad we did, it is true the hotel is a little worn out and some of the service is a little slow, but everyone is very nice and honestly we learned while staying in Kauai everything is a little slower and on island time. The location is second to none, with spectacular views of Hanalei Bay and evening sunsets. The food in the restaurants was excellent and I did not think the prices were outrageous when comparing them to other restaurants in Hanalei or earlier in the week while staying at the Ritz Carlton in Maui. One of the mangers Kayla added a nice personal touch to our stay and Jodie on the concierge team did an excellent job working through multiple itinerary changes with us.
Overall a great stay.
