  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Nice decor, ac was not noisy, well located, gorgeous beach view. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that the sheets get cleaned but i am pretty sure the bed cover doesn’t. It wasn’t stained or anything but it’s big and fancy, and no blankets underneath other than sheets. So we slept in sheets only and had the ac working very low.

    The property has a great location right beside the ocean but the building itself was rundown. The rooms, especially the bathrooms, could use some updating. The toilet in our room continuously flushed so we had to keep fixing it everytime we used it.

    Great staff and lovely continental breakfast every morning. Pool was great - not overheated, so perfect for Canadians. Bikes available for use were a little worse for wear. Hotel under renovation and the newer part looked better than the main building where check-in occurred. There was security lighting that kept going on and off during the night which bothered us.

    Good place-not as pictured.Read to know what u get

    This place is a good value, but many things in the ad are simply misleading. We stayed 3 nights and the pool was closed all 4 days. We asked at the desk and got a shrug. Pool area looked beautiful but I talked to a couple locals and it sounds like this is not an uncommon occurrence at the hotel. The location is great- walking distance to little downtown, a lot of restaurants, and sits right on the water. And very close to the little picturesque river that flows into the ocean. Just don’t expect a bike ride to any of it- yes they have free bikes to take, but it’s 2 for the entire property. So be early and lucky if you daydreaming about that sunset ride on the beach. The grounds are a mess- garbage everywhere, they even left full garbage bags outside for several days after changing out the bags. Office was strange and cluttered and on check in the woman was more interested in the fact I had extended the reservation a night 2-3 months before than in answering my questions about the area and the hotel. While I think this place has a lot of potential I think it needs some maintenance, simply cleaning up the property to mitigate the mess of the homeless/tent population that seem to prefer this part of Kapa’a. In contrast to this is the rooms that, while dated, were particularly clean and beds were very comfortable. Overall a good place, though I wouldn’t call it a resort like their website. Lots of natural beauty everywhere on Kauai- lots here too.

    They gave us the wrong code for the room then gave my an attitude about having to give me another one. We were tired from our trip and had to wait outside our door for 10 minutes.

    It has a great location. Open view of Pacific Ocean and the beach is in front of the hotel. As the hotel name indicates, there are corals and nice to snorkel right in front of the hotel. We stayed 5 days and 4 nights.During this time, our room was not cleaned at all . We had to go and ask for shampoo and conditioner.
