We stayed here one night on 8/19 due to having to reschedule our flight (mechanical issue delay would've caused us to miss our connecting flight so we rebooked the whole thing for the next day). We booked last minute around 8 in the evening. From the lady at reservations to Linda at shuttle scheduling to Jasmine at check in, we were treated so warmly and kindly, it made the frazzled airline experience bearable. We slept wonderfully in the comfortable bed and air-conditioned room. Every staff member we encountered on our walk around the grounds the next morning went out of his/her way to say Aloha or ask if we needed anything. We had an amazing breakfast at Naupaka Terrace, with a kind waiter who helped our excited daughter find the way to the koi feeding mid-breakfast. At check out, our questions were answered with a smile. We wished we would've stayed here for our entire trip, but will make sure we do so on our next adventure to the island! Mahalo, Kauai Beach Resort for your amazing hospitality!

Aloha,

Thank you so much for staying with us on a last minute reservation and sharing your feedback regarding your pleasurable experience. I'm delighted to hear that although you had a short stay and weren't able to take advantage of all of our amenities, that the amenities and people you were able to experience, exceeded your expectations. We wish you could've stayed longer, however, wish your return on your next Kauai Island escape.

Mahalo!

This is my first review as I am normally not picky w/ hotel rooms so this should show the extent of how negative this hotel experience was.

The first night we ate dinner at a restaurant and waited so long to receive our bill; our waiter legitimately disappeared. Trying to stay positive, because after all we are in Hawaii trying to have a special time, I walked up to the manager to get the bill. I paid for the bill, including tip, with cash, told the waiter I did not require any change, and we left. Later that evening, despite having a "Do Not Disturb" on my hotel room door, a woman came upstairs to my room to tell me I failed to pay my bill. I told the woman that there must be a misunderstanding; this is not even our bill (it was a completely different bill with food we did not order), and she said okay and went back downstairs to the restaurant. Later that evening, I received multiple calls from the restaurant insisting that I did not pay the bill. I referenced a couple dining to the right of us that watched me pay the bill, described my waiter to them in detail (they said there were no male waiters on staff even though we had a male waiter who was practically servicing half of the restaurant), and even described every single food item we ordered as well as the pricing of those food items we ordered to prove to them that the bill they are claiming we did not pay is not even ours . . . a few hours later after painful phone calls, the woman calls me back and says they are all set and figured out the problem. They did not even issue an apology for inconveniencing me and the time lost that evening nor did they even tell me the root of all the confusion. Annoying....but you know what, mistakes happen, and I can live with that.

The hiccup above is nothing compared to what happened to my girlfriend and I (as well as another couple) the following day when we were trying to head back to the airport at the end of our vacation to catch our flight. Part of what attracted us to this hotel is its free shuttle service to and from the airport, and because we did not have a rental car that day, we knew this would be of value to us. Unfortunately, and to no fault of the hotel's, there was a major accident on the main highway outside of the hotel which caused the road coming FROM the airport to be shut down. However, the road TO the airport was still open and we would have had no problem getting to the airport w/ the the help of the hotel shuttle service. The hotel already had a shuttle bus out in the traffic (coming FROM the airport after dropping off hotel guests) and it was stuck because it was on the side of the road the accident was on. Concierge had a second shuttle but refused to bring us to the airport because they didn't want their second shuttle bus to get stuck in the traffic on the way back from the airport. The concierge did go to management to get approval to release the second shuttle bus to bring my girlfriend and I, as well as another couple, to the airport but management denied the request and told us we are just going to have to call the airport and tell them we cannot make our flights and will just have to stay another night at the hotel. Management could have taken the second shuttle bus to the airport but refused to do so due to how it would inconvenience them on the way back to the hotel. They were willing to let multiple guests miss their flights instead. The hotel even had a rental car service at the hotel and could have provided us with a free rental that we could have dropped off at the airport so it wouldn't have to get stuck in traffic coming back. . . but nope, we got zero customer support. Basically felt like it was not their problem since we are already checked out and our bill to them was paid. Because missing our flights was not an option, my girlfriend and I as well as the other couple set off on foot in 85 degree heat with all of our luggage and walked / jogged the 3.5 miles to the airport to reach our flight in time. We really should be given a refund for our nightmare of a stay.

Thank you for your candid review of your less than desirable experience that you experienced at Kauai Beach Resort. I am not proud to hear of the experience that you had, for the lack of customer service in the restaurant and with the shuttle service. We would love to further discuss your experience with you, please contact us at 808-245-1955 and speak with the Manager on Duty.

We strive to provide memorable Guest experiences for all who come through our doors, and unfortunately failed on all levels, and therefore apologize to you for the lack of customer service.

Mahalo!

My husband and I stayed here for a week for our anniversary. Our gift from the hotel was a free dessert and 15% if we purchased two entrees at their restaurant. The food in the restaurant is just average, but it’s definitely overpriced. Maybe it’s because it’s on an island and it’s a resort, but we found better food away from the resort for the same price or cheaper.

Our room was cleanish. I say cleanish because it was clear the bathroom floor, toilet, and floor of the bathtub were cleaned. But the shower wall had obviously soap scum, mildew/mold. I brought it to the attention of hotel staff on our first morning. It was cleaned by that evening. On the second morning, I brought it to the attention of the front desk supervisor with pictures, and when we got back that evening, it was partially cleaned up. By that, I mean the pink soap scum was cleaned up but most of the mildew remained. The other issue was that our carpet had clearly seen better days. It was probably vacuumed regularly, but it was just worn out and dirty looking. The bed was comfortable and sheets were clean.

all staff members were very helpful and nice. The pool was nice, one pool was a bit green, but with as much rain as they had in recent weeks, it’s understandable.

The beach was nice, although not swimmable because there were so many Man-o-war washing up. Apparently that happens in the summer of the east shore.

Would I stay there again, maybe? I can’t say for sure. It’s not some place then I’m going to put high on my priority list if I returned.

It's a nice place, and relatively inexpensive. The staff was very nice. They wrre very polite when they approached us at the pool bc we didnt know we needed bracelets showing we were guests there. Cleanliness was not great, though.

This is a great resort for families or just a relaxing holiday if you're single. The staff is very nice & genuien as the Hawaiian people are as a whole.

This is more a Family resort or for Newlyweds.

You will need a car so plan a rental car in your budget. The hotel does offer to take you to nearby stores & venues but if you want to see the Island, you will need a car.

The beach is not one that you can layout on. It's ruggered, the tide comes in quick & changes frequently. Rip currents are the norm so keep away from the ocean. After all, you're in the middle of the Pacific ocean.

The hotel has several buildings & an array of activities are planned throughout the day.

The area of this hotel once belonged to
His Majesty King K•••••••••••••••••••••••••• (I would not dare try to spell it, or misspell it) so you may meet some Hawaiian Blue bloods. They compete every year in the traditional dance competition & have won a few times. HINT: MEN wear the flower in their hair on the Right side, WOMEN on the left. No worries, they will correct you.

Now about the CHICKENS!!!

There are wild chickens everywhere. They are treasured by the locals as a sign from their Gods. They run around the grounds freely. The hotel even has a shop w/merchandise about the CHICKENS.

They can be very aggressive if your having lunch/dinner at the pool bar. And get this, they EAT CHICKEN! We feed then pieces of chicken at lunch. Hahahaha

Your seashell ring is your Do Not Distrube sign if hanging on ur door. It's not to be worn as an accessory...hahahaha

The chambres are large w/individual balconies facing the ocean.

Enjoy!
