As soon as we arrived at Koa Kea, 22 hours after leaving the East Coast, the staff took great care to get us through check in quickly and comfortably. Two valets took our car (unpacking everything quickly) and had our reservation pulled up when we went inside. Those small details, after a long day of difficult travel, made us fall...

Koa Kea is a fantastic place to stay! The staff is incredibly friendly and really want to help you have a great time. The valet staff were open with recommendations and directions and always had our car ready quickly. Front desk was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful! We were in room 210, above the front desk/restaurant area with an ocean...

If you want...impeccable service, awesome food, modern rooms, and a quiet atmosphere...then this is your destination. If you want...a party, great place for multiple kids, or to meet the opposite sex at your destination...then this is not the place for you. My fiance and I felt as though the Koa Kea was a vacation retreat within the retreats. Perfect for...

I was staying at a previous resort ( the point of poipu) and halfway through my trip I transferred to Koa kea. This was such a great decision. The service is impeccable. I was traveling solo so they put me on the top floor with a secure hallway. They also extended my checkout time to 2 pm free of charge...

My husband and I stayed at the Koa Kea for 4 nights for our honeymoon. We started in Waikiki for 2 nights and then made it to Kauai to stay at the Koa Kea. The Koa Kea and Kauai in general were a breath of fresh air coming from Oahu. We were pleasantly surprised by the personal attention and service...

I am accustomed to staying at the best places I can find when I travel. This place did not disappoint. That said, the rooms themselves are what I would call "average". But everything else is well above average or outstanding. We had an ocean FRONT room on the third floor overlooking Poipu Beach. The room is so close to the...

Totally rebuilt, this hotel is tastefully refurnished. The place in poipu is a good alternative in south Kauai. Certainly to visit this part of island, normally more sunny. The hotel is not too large ( not really the boutique hotel but not to far when you see the big one s in hawaai. The room are nice too, confortable. The...

I agree with some reviewers that say this property is a very nice place but should charge less, the prices they charge are for 5 star hotel and this hotel is still behind those, the property is in very good condition but the rooms are very small and the bathroom is also small and quite uncomfortable, they only give you...

I reluctantly booked the koa kea for our honeymoon because most resorts are super crowded and make you feel like a tourist. After reading the reviews for the koa kea and some arm twisting from my wife I decided to try it and I'm very glad I did. From the moment we pulled our rented jeep up to the front...

No children on this trip, so we wanted a quiet, oceanfront hotel. This fits the bill perfectly. All the kids were next door at the Marriott, and we were so thankful we weren't sharing our vacation with them ;) Beautiful grounds and hotel has been remodeled after last hurricane. Very Hawaiian modern. We had an oceanfront room-excellent choice at this...
