Stayed here for one week and was pleasantly surprised. Asked for a beachfront unit not on the ground floor and got a ground floor unit one back from the beach and a fifteen minute lecture on how all units should be built on the beach. There are quite a few with no views and set on the main highway so be prepared to be disappointed. Apart from that, it was very central with heaps of eating houses within a short walk. Beach was small as are most in Hawaii. Tiny pool. 4 stars was generous, but if I was going back to Kauai I would stay here again.

Good location, within walking distance to many facilities and a minute from the beach. Staff are good, immediately respond to things that need to be fixed. Bad layout of bedroom, faces south and has no air conditioning, is therefore really hot. Bed is very uncomfortable, queen size is not adequate for tall people. Would have been better to have a unit that is by the ocean or right behind it. Our complex was closer to the main road and more noisy.

This is walking distance to downtown Kapaa. Plenty of shops and great restaurants. Right next door is Ono Family Restaurant that has great breakfast choices at a reasonable price. Kountry Kitchen is another excellent restaurant a few blocks away.
Right in front of Pono Kai is 5 mile plus cement walkway all along the beach with beautiful views and suitable for walking or biking.

Room tip: Incredible views of the ocean.

My boyfriend and I were traveling around Kauai hiking and camping along the way. We wanted to spend a little more for a nice comfy night in a nice place. The place we rented was very run down. The toilet and bath would hardly drain, the ice maker in the fridge did not work. The pool was closed due to lack of staffing. We were very disappointed since we paid an upwards of almost $400 a night. However, the agency who we booked through did provide a partial refund.

Stayed at Pono Kai Resort for one week. First stop of a 13 day vacation with my husband. At check in, we were greeted with a smile by Kemi. Check in was quick and easy. Our reservation was for a one bedroom unit. Kemi upgraded us to a newly renovated two bedroom loft unit with a view of the pool and garden. Our unit was in H building and we were okay with it. The resort is in a great location if you like being within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. However, you may want to rent a car to see the island.
