My husband and I visited Kauai Beach resort for the month of February, 2020. We were assigned a room which was located on the northern edge of the property away from the center of the activities. We like to BBQ some dinners and be nearer the ocean. We asked if we could change to a more central location and was told there would be a vacated unit in about a week but we should keep checking the front desk daily which we did. We were moved sooner and was much happier, closer to the BBQ grills and more accessible to the paths along the ocean. We were told the time we were to be moved and a young man came to help with our luggage.
KC is 53 years old and it shows in some ways but if anything needs attention/repairs, help is sent immediately. The units are clean and maid service comes every 4 days, changing bed linens on alternate cleaning cleaning days.
Most units have sliding glass doors in the bedroom and also on the living room/kitchen areas with a patio and table and 2 chairs.
Kitchens are fully equipped and if needed and available, extra supplies are delivered upon request.
Pool area is scenic and equipped with lawn chairs, umbrella tables, a bar and grills.
Many units are reserved by timeshare owners and occupancy is very high. Unlike other resorts, KC does not charge a daily “resort” tax. Suggestion: book a good time in advance.

Highly recommend this resort. The location of the resort is perfect. Beachfront with a nice pool, hot tub. There is multiple restaurants and shopping within a 2 minute walk! You can literally stay here and not have to drive anywhere if you prefer to stay and relax. There is a grocery store across the road, prices are high but they have most what you need. There is also a cheaper alternative, Safeway grocery store just a 2 minute drive. 1 beach front restaurant, Lava Lava Beach Club. Hukilau Lanai restaurant is right at resort and is absolutely amazing. You need to make reservations at least 2-3 weeks before your trip, I’d recommend making reservations when you book your trip so you can get the time you want! I had the fish and my husband had the Prime Rib, he said it was the best Prime Rib he had ever had. He had it 3 times during our trip! Meals are $25-45. We usually don’t spend this much on meals;however, it was so amazing we did 3 times! We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit. I was so pleasantly surprised how large it was! There is a nice kitchen. The resort is located in Kapaa which is on East side. This is the perfect location, you can easily drive to the North side or West side. Kapaa is a great location with a nice shopping and beaches area also. Downtown Kapaa is only a 5-7 minutes away. This will always be our choice place to when we visit Hawaii!

Check-in was quick and easy and they allowed us to check-in early which was great! The resort was very well maintained. The beach behind the resort was not swimmable but the staff told us about a nice beach within a 5-10 minute walk. There is an ABC store, shops, bike rentals, and restaurants right in front of the resort. The pool was heated so it was great for swimming and the jacuzzi had plenty of space! Overall great resort for a relaxing vacation!

Booked at this resort for 10 days mid July 2022. It was rated at 4.5 out of 5. After being at the resort for 30 minutes I quickly concluded that the favorable reports could only have been written by paid Wyndham employees. Checkin was fairly smooth..I provided my credit card for the usual deposit. I was then told I was being charged an additional 15 dollars for a tax I was not charged when the booking was made. We were also now told that there was no maid service.This is only done after checkout or every 10 days if you are staying longer. So be prepared to do your own cleaning, haul your garbage to bins set outside etc. We found our room at night ourself and found the key card would not unlock the door. Went back to the lobby and returned with security. After a lot of attempts he got the door to open.To test it he relocked again and again it took forever to unlock. We got inside and we're told that maintenance would come by. Inside we discovered we were in a 1 bedroom not a 2 bedroom we had booked. The resort was full so we could not move. Furnishing in the room are very dated and well worn. They should have been replaced 10 years ago and probably twice in that time. Maintenance showed up and could not get the door to open. We were told someone else would try the next day. Finally after two different maintenance people the lock was working the next afternoon. Lastly I booked a rental car through the hotel for 5 days. All was good and I paid at the hotel. Took an Uber to get the car a 32 dollar charge. I found out at the rental company that my rental was for 7 days, 2 days longer than I would be in Kauai. The rental company said they could not reverse any charges as that had to be done by the hotel. I took the care and went to the hotel.Here they told me that as I had the car nothing could be done The hotel rep did try to help but the Windham supervisor. said they could do nothing to reverse the 2 day charge even though they acknowledged their error. I told them I would even be happy with a hotel crrd but was told no. I have 3 more glorious days in this hell hole in paradise I can only guess what comes next

The ocean view is nice however that is where it ends. Upon checking in they ask that you book a “resort update “ appointment for the next day. This is not an update, it is a timeshare presentation for Wyndham. We stayed in the “Canoe” building which needs lots of TLC. The room had a musty smell, the furniture is dated, sofa needs cleaning, sofa bed mattress stained, the room could use a good cleaning and makeover. There are no housekeeping services of any kind offered until after day 10 so if your stay is 9 days or less you clean your room yourself including changing sheets and towels. We booked a rental vehicle through the resort. They booked us for 2 additional days after we leave and acknowledged that it was their error however refused to refund us for the extra days.

The concierge who was a women extremely unhelpful. She flat out told us a lie about booking a table at the Beach House Restaurant. She said she left me a message which I never received after checking my cell number and room number several times. She said all reservations were booked up the week of our stay at the Beach Boy. I called the Beach House restaurant personally and there were at least three available dates and times we could choose without any trouble. We booked a reservation via telephone without any trouble and the staff were quite confused because they said they never received a call from the Kauai Beach Boy Resort. After being Shell and Wyndham owners for many years, we have never been treated so poorly by the staff there. We had guests stay with us this time and it was quite embarrassing that we were treated so poorly. Albert checked us in at the resort and became argumentative when we asked why our room we requested as owners months ago was not available. He became quite obdurate, impatient, disrespectful to us when we checked in. We have stayed at this resort many times as owners and in good conscience can no longer recommend this resort as a nice resort to stay at. The rooms are beginning to show their age, there was dust and dirt on the furniture, in the kitchen, unclean bathrooms, and no sign of maid service during the week. We would like to state that the sales representative which we booked a sales update was very helpful and considerate. We are clearly disappointed and quite dismayed at the other representatives that proved a lack of respect and concern during our stay at the Beach Boy.

The front desk personnel, Albert, Elijian and I think her name is Rose made this trip extra special. They were always friendly and helpful, and we were there for 9 days.
The resort itself really needs some help. There is a lot of sloppy paint splatter in the room. The lighting in the bathrooms are horribly dim. Alot of rust and moister damage on wood cabinets. Housekeeping needs to consider cleaning out the dryer lint screen after some leaves and pull out the drawer at the bottom of the oven and clean. You may be surprised what you find...like a lot of dirt!!

Stayed here because I had Wyndham points. Seemed like a nice place based on the website. Experience was well below satisfactory. And it comes down to a tired (think 80s) resort that brings high pressure sales the moment you checkin. Forcing someone to sit down at a timeshare sales desk to get a parking pass is crazy. And then to be made to wait 25 minutes for that desk to finish with prior guest, after traveling ALL DAY, was infuriating.

Find any other non-Wyndham and you’ll be much happier.

Don't stay here. This place smells of mold and mildew, The smell was noted the first day, then after that my nose became accustomed to the smell. Upon returning home I had to replace several items. I washed, bleached, used Oxi Clean, Lysol and placed items in the sun and nothing I did could get rid of the smell. I have spent over $300 to replace my suitcase, makeup bags, air bed, collapsible ice chest and other items. It took four washings to get the smell out of my hair. It's a shame because it is in a nice area.

This is a clean well maintained resort. They do have restaurant that is sorta of pricey and only open 5 nights a week. However across the street is Coconut Market Place with some choices and the Kapaa district is just up he road. Well maintained grounds with many grills and a nice lanai with fire pits. Also a nice pool and hot tub. Sits on the ocean, but no swimming beach.

Is the beach at the Kauai Beachboy safe for swimming?
Answer from Jetsetpet
Paris, France129 contributions16 helpful votes
Before I booked our stay, it was my biggest question too. :) We stayed at the Beachboy for 3 weeks in April and swam each day. Yes, it's perfectly safe for swimming, but not always directly in front of the hotel only because there are some large rocks. It depends how calm the water is on any given day. Otherwise, just stroll about a minute down the coastal path and you'll find sandy spots to swim. We swam in front of the Lava Lava Beach Club without any issues, even on "rough" days. In April, there was no current to speak of. If you have young children, you could walk about a minute more to the end of the path where you'll find a keiki pool (a shallow pool in the ocean protected from waves for young children). If you look at the Beachboy on Google Maps using satellite, you'll see what I mean. We had a really wonderful stay at the Beachboy and recommend it without hesitation.
