    This hotel is AMAZING - wow! Friendly staff, clean rooms, amazing bar, front desk and room service. I loved that the beach chairs were up on the grass so things didn't get too sandy. The beach is less than a 30 sec walk if you enjoy swimming in the beach. You can snorkle right there as well. The valet service was amazing - it was great that we could take towels off site when we wanted to visit other parts of the island. Their restaurant, Red Salt, was so delicious (but super pricey). We only ate there once (for our pocket's sake lol). Other than the price of the food and drinks (it was quite expensive even for Kauai), we were so happy with our choice to stay here! Rooms are quite a bit cheaper if you book on Expedia (or similar) versus their own website. I would definitely stay here again!

    Extremely clean and quiet resort. Limited amount of people so the pool, restaurant and resort was very spacious for everyone's enjoyment. The staff was exceptional in every aspect. Well worth the price and the oceanfront room was extraordinary. Thank you!

    Great boutique resort that is less crowded than other bigger resorts. Yes, compared to other bigger resorts they have less offering, but a great trade-off if you're looking for a more quiet and intimate setting. Will definitely stay here again!

    We really love the Koa Kea. Check-in is fast and efficient and we kept returning to Shayla for assistance throughout our stay since she was so helpful. The valet guys are friendly, with special mentions to Daniel, Alex and Mike for the tips on places to check out and for remembering our car and what we've been up to on our trip. It makes a big difference when we mention we are doing an ATV trip and the next day, Daniel asks us about it. These staff are really great at their jobs and add to the special touches we love about the hotel where you feel like a 'somebody' rather than a faceless wallet at a big-brand resort. The hotel itself is spotless and turn-down service is incredible here because they also do a quick clean up with turn down service so you never feel like you have to ask for more towels. The bed is super comfy other little touches that are very much appreciated include the free refreshing fruit juice in the lobby after a big hike or excursion, the complimentary sunset mai tais and midday smoothie samples that are handed out poolside, how helpful the front desk team was in booking activities and excursions and offering honest feedback on them, the absolutely perfect refreshing-but-not-cold temperature of the pool, the complimentary branded flip-flops in the hotel room, easy access to on-site laundry, the fact that the valet parking is included in the resort fee, that you are steps away from a stunning beach, and the overall perfect luxury boutique vibe!

    We loved that it is small and has a cozy feel about it. The location and grounds are lovely. The staff (especially the valets) were all welcoming and friendly. We were disappointed to have to pay the daily resort fee for our first night, even though we arrived after midnight. There is NO resort sign on the west side of the entry road (where most people would be looking if coming from the airport), so it was only after driving past it and doubling back that we managed to find it in the pitch black. We would love to go back to Koa Kea but, sadly, it won't be in our budget now that my husband has retired.
