We enjoyed our staycation lounging next to the pool. The wait staff was prompt and the food and drinks were delicious. We felt like we were out in the country, but were 5 minutes from anything we could want. The beach out front was beautiful, great for long walks. My baby enjoyed the sand bottom keiki pool; my husband and I enjoyed it, because our child was having a blast! Thank you KBR!

Aloha C&K, When our children have a great time, it does help our holiday and I'm glad you all enjoyed. While our beach is not swimmable, the walking is great, and the four pools including a sand bottom pool is great for the family. Mahalo for the great ratings and comments and we look forward to you staying with us again Grant Grant S James General Manager

As it was 10 years ago, our stay was wonderful!

Pros: We love the big hotel with a small hotel feel. Responsiveness of staff to any question or concern was greatly appreciated,as was their friendlessness.
Cons: The printer in the business center was not working, and was only hooked up to the non-functioning computer. The Saturday night buffet was not worth $
Location: everything!! Rent a car.
We love the private uncrowded beach for our daily walk,

Room experience

When we arrived in our room there were obvious issues that the room had not been cleaned well. We brought this up with our housekeeper and she took care of the problems. The wallpaper was coming apart at the seems and coming off in many areas. It looked quite old. I know we got a good deal on the room but wasn't expecting this. The bed was awesome!!!! We loved the pools and the dining was great. We would come again!

Aloha and Mahalo for spending your vacation at Kaua'i Beach Resort!

4 out of 5

Pleasant stay for a good price

Pros: The pools, shave ice bar, location, complementary DVD rental and very friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Lower daily parking fees, since guests have no other option. Include more complimentary hula shows, once daily maybe for incoming guest arrivals.
Location: Centrally located between everything, but you will need your own transportation to leave the grounds of the resort.
We went with this hotel because it was reasonable and had good reviews. The facilities were good and all encompassing. It is older and could use some updating, but very clean and very friendly staff, especially all the front desk staff. Pool area was huge with a variety of options (Including a sand bottom and salt water version). We will return.

OVERALL, DISAPPOINTING, ROACHES!

Pros: Soft pillows
Cons: Spray for roaches. If a guest's plane is later in day, allow accomadation for a late check-in.
Location: GOOD LOCAL BEACH
Room was small for the price. Was supposed to have a King bed, plus a pullout for 3rd guest, (which we paid extra). Instead, got 2 doubles. Roaches in the room. Wouldn't allow us to check in until after 3:30 P.M. Refused to let us have late check-out by 1 hour. When told of roaches, reply: "Do you want us to spray the room now?" ( At this point, we had 3 hours left!) Charges Extra money for parking that's 1/4 mile away. Charged full rate for 20 hrs. We feel like we were "nickeled & dimed" to death over taxes, etc. This is the first hotel in 35 years of staying in Hawaii that I have not felt the ALOHA FEELING. Overall, disappointed.

Aloha Vicki, Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences you experienced during your recent stay. All of our guest rooms are the standard size which would not allow for a pullout sleeper sofa that is only located in our pool or ocean suites. As for any late check-outs, unfortunately with the high occupancy levels we were not able to extend for an additional hour. The state and transient taxes are unavoidable - I'm sorry that you felt you were nickel and dimed. Again we mahalo you for sharing your mana'o. Me ke Aloha Pumehana, jodi

Kauai Beach resort

Fantastic hotel centrally located on the island. Great for families. Many of the island locals stay here. They say it has the best pool of all the resorts. The room was newly renovated and beautiful. Highly recommend
