    The Kauai Marriott Resort is a very large property with immaculate grounds, The pool, ponds and the beach are stunning. The bedroom was a fairly good size and the king size bed very comfortable.

    Gorgeous property and landscaping. Fun pool. Beautiful beachfront. Great access to various nearby, delicious restaurants. Dated room but clean and awesome view. Friendly staff. Construction going on during the day, which made for a noisy time near the hot tubs.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Parking difficult for some towers- have to compete with local beach traffic, Directions to room unclear and provided maps not helpful, Beach just OK, no screens on balcony room doors so cannot hear ocean without mosquitos coming in, breakfast decent but very expensive, no wifi in some towers

    Good service, cleanliness and appearance. Very helpful and kind staff. Only issue is the fridge in the room could be updated to something modern that doesn't make any noise. This would help ensure a better night's sleep.

    Beautiful hotel, amazing pools and the staff was really friendly! Good location in the island, close by to a lot of things, and a short drive from the airport. The beach when we went had sticks and logs all over the beach and throuout the water. We did arive after a big storm (Hurricane Lane) so that may be why, but the water and the beach was the only downside to this trip.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The property itself was great. Most things were closed due to COVID-19, which was very understandable, and the places that were open were fantastic. The only complaint that my wife and I had during our stay was that our room was not cleaned/restocked once. We had to continue to call the front desk for more coffee and cups. Asked once for more beach and shower towels, but only ever got beach towels. Ended up using those to shower and just got more down by the pool every time we went down. Not sure if there was a policy that I needed to do to get the room cleaned or not, but there was nothing communicated on check-in.
