Upon checking in to our "Mountain View" room, I was very disappointed to see that the only view we really had was that of two DUMPSTERS and no mountains. (this area also appeared to be the designated smoking area...YUK).
The room itself was clean, and had a mini fridge (no microwave). Our room was a "king" but, the bed seemed smaller, I am 5'6" and was not 10" wider than I am tall. Maybe 1 or 2 inches... which isn't even a bed size.?!? It was comfortable and had enough pillows.
The pool area was very nice with a pool slide & a sand pool. There were 2 hot tubs which were nice (we even had one to ourselves one night). The beach is not good for swimming, however, it is great for walking and there were better areas on that walk if you want to swim. We walked every day for miles ! Wonderful !!
Some other things to be aware of: Happy Hour is set up in a strange and deceptive way. Happy hour is from 5-7, but there are different prices based on time. We ordered $5 wine at 5pm, not realizing once the clock hit 6pm, the special price stopped.
Also, as others have mentioned, parking is expensive, it was more than we had to pay at the Fairmont Kea Lani on Maui !! And the parking lot is HORRIBLE. It is the red dirt and if it is wet, your shoes and legs will be covered in this by the time you get to the hotel. There were also 2 "special" events in the 4 nights while we were there, which made finding a spot anywhere next to impossible.
The Wi-Fi is only free in the lobby area and the business center charges you 49 cents a minute and 99 cents a page ~ I have NEVER seen this before!!
The friendly staff & nice walking beach are the highlights of this resort.

Room Tip: Don't go with a mountain view in building 3

I am a Concierge at a resort in Arizona. I did quite a lot of research before booking this hotel. There were a few negative reviews but I went ahead and made the reservation. We thought it was great. We had a oceanfront room which was lovely.The valets were beyond friendly. Our cleaning lady Lilybeth was a jewel. Everyone greets you, every time they see you and make you feel welcome. The restaurant we ate at only once and it was average but a bit overpriced. The bar and happy hour good but need to add a well drink at a reduced price. Not everyone drinks beer and wine. Would not hesitate to book again. Oh we had bldg. 4. Its a longer walk but worth it.

Room Tip: Building 4 if possible.

I just stayed at the Kauai Beach Resort for my fifth time. Every time I have stayed here I have found myself regretting the fact that I was leaving so soon. This is a wonderful property and the Staff makes it all the more wonderful. The location is ideal for being able to see all of Kauai easily. It has beautiful grounds and a picturesque setting. The live entertainment is always high quality and has become something I look forward to during my stay. Overall, this is truly one of my favorite hotels in the islands. A great value and a great experience.

This was the nicest hotel of our 3 week trip through the Hawaiian islands. We had an Ocean Front room and enjoyed the sunrise many mornings during our 5 night stay. The grounds are beautiful from the tree lined entrance through to the spectacular pool area with waterfalls, hot tubs, etc. The ocean is really best for whale watching since the beach is not great for swimming. The location however is excellent being 5-10 minutes from the Airport at Lihue, and then located almost halfway up the Eastern coast between the attractions to the North and the beaches, Poipu etc to the South. The Resort is also very close to Kapa'a, a town to the North about 10 minits with stores, beaches, markets.
The staff were really nice and very helpful. The Spa staff are great and the yoga on the grounds excellent. Restaurants were good
The room was great and well cleaned by the cleaning staff. Had a really relaxing time and would recommend this Resort.

We stayed at the Kauai Beach Resort for 7 nights ending February 4, 2014. We had looked at pictures on the internet, but the resort was nicer than the pictures. Building and grounds were immaculately maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the food at all three places on the property, Naupaka Terrace, Shutters Bar, and the pool side bar & grill. The hotel is only ten minutes from Lihue airport and central to travel on the islands highways. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Kauai!
