“Fantastic vacation in Kauai”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We stayed at this resort at the end of March/beginning of April of this year, thru RCI, so we just got back.. We loved the Kauai Beach Villas. The condo and grounds were well maintained with a very nice quiet balcony. We loved the location, being on the East side of the island. It was convenient to shopping and both the North and South sides of the island. However, the staff really helped make this a wonderful vacation. They were so helpful with assistance in arranging activities and suggestions about things we wanted to experience. Thanks Vicki and everyone else. We would highly recommend this property

Room Tip: All rooms are good, especially ones next to the grills.

We are Wyndham owners. I realize these resorts were acquired from the Pahio Resorts. It is nowhere near the quality we usually experience at other Wyndham resorts. I was glad to see improvements were being made while we were there. I'm trusting that it will be brought up to the usual WVR standards. I would not recommend this resort to anyone who has mobility problems. There are no elevators. My parents joined us. They had a one bedroom unit on the third floor. We were charged $50 for a missing card key. This is the first and only time that's ever happened. We were pleased to see coolers in the room. AC is in the bedrooms only so you'll have to crank them up if you want to feel it out in the living room. Grounds are nice. Location is great. Close to everything but far enough away to be restful. Roosters run rampant on the island. They add a country feel to the resort. They can be quite entertaining to watch. For the most part our stay was pleasant. If we go again, we will probably not take my parents unless we can be guaranteed a floor unit.

Room Tip: No elevators, if you or your guests have mobility issues, be sure to ask for a ground unit before re...

The location of this resort on the East side is the best thing about it. It's near the airport and easy to access all the wonderful things to do on the island. It is also on a beach, and although it's not a swimming beach, it's perfect for whale and sunrise watching.

Our unit was a 1 bedroom in building G and was on the ocean, a nice surprise, since we hadn't expected it. The unit was comfortable except for the living room furniture. As others have stated it is outdated and uncomfortable. The resort is being remodeled, but apparently they hadn't gotten to our unit yet. The only other complaint I had was that the WIFI kept cutting out.

The grounds are beautiful and impeccably maintained. The front desk is welcoming and helpful. We are Wyndham owners and declined to hear the sales pitch and get the tour. We didn't want to waste any of our precious time on the island. They didn't pressure us.

We enjoyed every day of our explorations, but would most recommend the Limahuli Botanical Garden on the north side of the island (if you're into nature), and Captain Andy's sunset dinner cruise of the Napali coast. Both were well worth the money. We saw whales and dolphins on the cruise. We also rented bikes in Kapaa, and rode along a wonderful bike bath that goes along the coast. I miss the island already!

Room Tip: If you are a Wyndham owner, it's worth the extra points to get an ocean view room and see that b...

We stayed at the Kauai Beach Villas, #D11, this March. What a great experience! Kauai Beach Villas is located right next door to Kauai Beach resort. So addition to the pool and hot tub at the Villas, you have full use of the Resort’s three pools and hot tubs. We spent a few sunny days at the pool with the kids, stopping to eat lunch at the poolside grill.

The Villas are about five minutes south of the airport, which was great after a long flight with two children. The location is perfect for exploring all that Kauai has to offer. Drive 35 minutes south, and you’re in sunny Poipu. Drive 45 minutes north and you’re exploring lush Princeville.

The condo itself was very comfortable for us (three adults and two children): Two bedrooms (each with AC and flat screen TVs), two full bathrooms, a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, and lanais off the living room and each bedroom. The living room had a flat screen tv and blu-ray player, so we were able to stream Netflix and Hulu. There was even a small variety of kids DVDs and family movies. It may not have been ocean front, but we had a great view of the freshwater lagoon and the beautiful grounds.

We will definitely come back to Kauai Beach Villas and stay in unit #D11.

Room Tip: D11 had a great view of the freshwater lagoon.

We did a RCI exchange and were assigned a villa in the G Building on the ocean. Fabulous, listening to the waves right now enjoying sundowners. Great 2 bed units, good resort pool, villa hot tub and great walks going south for as long as you want....for us around 90 minutes minutes return. It exceeded our expectations. Would return in a heartbeat!

We stayed here through a timeshare exchange with RCI. We were a bit disappointed not to have an oceanfront room, but otherwise our one bedroom unit was very comfortable. Spacious, with a well equipped kitchen and a washer / dryer unit. Our balcony faced the mountains and a landscaped lagoon area. When my husband reported the ice maker was not working, it was replaced within 15 minutes.
We booked a couple of excursions with guest services, and everyone there was extremely helpful and friendly.
As others have noted, there is an adjoining full service hotel. There's live entertainment in the lounge, Shutters. The hotel pool areas and grounds are beautiful, though we didn't utilize them. There is a beach bar, which has a limited menu. We enjoyed a drink there while enjoying the ocean.
I found this a very pleasant, comfortable place to stay. There was much offered that we did not take advantage of, since we were out exploring Kauai.

Units in building are under major renovations. Local dirt bike track in operation on weekends. Very noisy! Nice location though . Rental company did respond to our noise complaint and moved the compressor to the far side of the adjacent building , although this was helpful it still didn't give us the atmosphere we were looking for.

Room Tip: Avoid this location this year.
