My husband and I went to Kauai for our anniversary. We stayed at the Marriott through their timeshare promotion package.
First, the resort grounds are very pretty and tropical and the rooms are very nice also. The restaurants, Dukes in particular was very good and had a nice romantic view of the ocean. But beware, have a reservation even if it means calling an hour before hand. They give the best tables to the people with reservations and there could be a long wait for a table otherwise. Portifinos is good too but seemed expensive for pasta. We ate a couple times at the Beach Hut Restaurant off the property. It is basically a fast food counter and not much to look at, but the food is very good, especially the french toast for breakfast. The prices are about half the price as the Marriott and it serves the same food.
The pool area was huge and very nice, chairs were always available. The beach was nice too, but the water was very rough so we did not swim off the beach, but is was pretty at night with the tiki torches lit up along the walkway.
The main problems with this resort to me was the parking lot was a long way away from the hotel, but they provided shuttle service if you wanted to wait for it. They also had valet parking, but you had to pay extra for it. They seemed to nickel and dime you for everything there. Pretty much everything cost extra. No free water exercise classes or free internet access in their business center. Only one day of free coffee in the room. Parking was extra. The person we went through to book this trip gave us an upgrade to an oceanview room for our anniversary so needless to say I arrived at the hotel expecting a wonderful oceanview room. I was extremely disappointed to find that our view consisted of a huge tree, (not a palm tree), and the back of the building a long way from the beach or water. I called and complained, but they would not give us a different room. They said to try the next morning and they still would not give us a different room, so we stayed in this horrible room for five nights. I felt like I had been betrayed. The hotel insisted that it was an oceanview room. We had considered adding two more nights there but are glad we did not pay full price for an oceanview to get this very bad room. So beware that this hotel does not accurately classify their rooms.
