Would stay here again
Kristin W (Vancouver, Canada)
the location of this hotel is fantastic as it is very central to the whole island and all the sites are only a short drive away. The hotel itself is quite nice, the lobby is beautiful as well as the pool area and hot tubs. The access to the beach out front is great too. The only downside was that the first room we walked into had a very strong odour of mildew or mould, like the humidity had got into the carpet or furniture. My husband has asthma and is quite sensitive to mildew so we asked to change rooms. The staff member at the front desk, who I can't remember his name, was excellent and very understanding. He got us a new room straight away and there were no problems with the second room. Would definitely stay here again.
Good Choice Among Many
joebbb (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Stayed 4 nights, 3 for vacation and one for a conference. Our room was well appointed and big enough. Beds were comfortable, and there was a small refrigerator that worked well and was not noisy. Big screen TV with many channels (but why would you go to Hawaii to watch TV?). Many rooms seem to have a view of the ocean - ours was more a of partial view, and at some distance, however, it was pleasant to sit out on the balcony, and catch the wonderful cool trade winds. There are some 4 swimming pools, a fitness center, a restaurant and a couple of bars. On Tuesday nights there is a musical show in the pool area. We got tickets for 2 Mai Tais when checking in, but we ended up watching from the room balcony. Staff was friendly and helpful. Be aware that like most better hotels on Kauai, there is a “resort fee” in addition to the room cost. It covers internet, parking and the “free drinks”. Just beyond the pools is the beach. It is not really a swimming beach due to rough currents and sharp coral, however, we did see one brave soul going in. This hotel is located not far from the airport and all of the east side attractions, such as the Lydgate Farms Chocolate Tour. Beware there always seems to be a lot of traffic going through Kapa’a. Staff was helpful and friendly. Spent some time in the bar with our group – when the live entertainment started, a hotel guest did a spontaneous Hula – it was quite fun.
Great staff and awesome pools
ido8all (New York City, New York)
Check-in at the hotel was awesome. Everyone were super warm and friendly . We got a room with a view of the pool and very close to the center of the resort (take in mind when booking a room that one with Mountain View can be on the other side of the resort). The pools were nice and the jacuzzis / hot rubs were exactly what we needed when it got cold. Beach- nice for a short walk, haven’t seen anyone getting in. Location- very close to the waterfall, in the center between the south east to north east, close to Kapaa. However, after staying on the island for 5 days, I’d probably choose to stay in Poipu which is warmer and has much more things to do. Bicycles- they don’t have bikes to rent but if you go but north to Kapaa (10 minutes), you can rent bikes and go on a beautiful bike trail . Coffee/ souvenirs- there’s a store inside the hotel that serves Starbucks coffee which was a great way to start the day. The staff there is awesome. Food- I wish they had more gluten free / dairy free options for breakfast . Outdoor activities- prices were higher than most places, so book it online * make sure to rent a car . Uber is super expensive there although the drivers are extremely nice and after couple days, you know most of them . Lol
Love Kauai Beach Resort!
Stubey (Seattle, Washington)
This was our second stay at KBR and definitely won’t be the last. The location can’t be beat, literally minutes from the airport and centrally located between Lihue and Kapaa, on a beautiful stretch of beach. Though not the newest nor fanciest resort, the grounds are beautiful and overall the property and rooms are very well maintained and a great value. We come to Kauai to relax and recharge and barely left the resort during either stay. For that, KBR is pretty perfect. We ate lunch at the pool bar and ordered room service for dinner and enjoyed all our meals. Nothing extraordinary but very tasty and satisfying.
Free stay from Alaska Airlines
Well our flight from Lihue to Seattle got cancelled and although not happy there are worst places then Kauai to get stuck in. Alaska put up at the Kauai Beach Resort and we were happy with it as the hotel is right on the water,has a nice lobby and good restaurants. The pool area is gorgeous and has a water slide so this is a great place for kids.
