When we stayed here it was the only hotel on the island in our price range that had any vacancies, but I am so glad we did stay here. After the first night we decided to book again for the next night because it was such a good combination of price point, location, and quality. The staff were very friendly...

I would recommend this charming hotel to anybody coming to Kauai. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff must be the friendliest on the island. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. It is centrally located making it easy to explore both the west and the north side of the island.

This is a funky little place but we enjoyed it. Centrally located so that you could easily explore the north end or the south end of the island, easy drive to grocery stores etc., and the price was right. Friendly staff, free beach toys/supplies for either walking to the beach in front of the Marriott or heading to PoiPu (look...

Hi, thanks so much for staying with us sounds like you had a great vacation. We try to keep our rooms at a good price, and provide our guests loads of extras to add to the value. It does help when guests book direct with and not a booking agent. The price is identical for the room, but we pay...

Mahalo for your review of our 2 bedroom condo option at the hotel. We have remodeled these condominiums which are well located for the use of the pool area and views of the beach. Many of our guests stop by the hotel lobby in the morning for morning snacks and beach gear, as they walk over to Kalapaki Beach. Having...

I needed to fill in 1 night in between my timeshare stays so I chose this based on price and location. I was surprised to find that the accommodations were very comfortable. I had a great sleep and found all of the atmosphere of water fountain and colorful paintings gave it an island feel. The staff was very pleasant. It's...
