To be fair, we got a great rate at the Sheraton Kauai Resort and as a result, ended up in a room very far from the beach with no view. We were close to the second pool, which was barely used and somewhat hidden away. There's nothing special about the second pool, few sun bathing chairs and no food/drink service - but good place to bring your own beverages and have a quick dip.
The beach-side pool, Lava Lounge and beach are the best parts of the Sheraton Kauai Resort. At times the pool can be busy, tough to get sun-bathing chairs, and the pool-area can be busy with families/kids. The Lava Lounge serves food and beverages around the pool, service can be slow during busier days, food is not great, but happy hour (3-5 p.m.) is well-priced for a snack and drinks. The beach in front of the Sheraton is probably one of the best in Kaua'i too, less rocky and gentler waves.
There was nothing special about our room, and from what I gathered, rooms in the front buildings with views were much nicer and more modern. Still, the room was clean and well kept, so we can't complain about that given our deal.
The Sheraton is also in a good location and you could probably survive without a car. There's two shopping/restaurant centers/malls within walking distance, along with long stretch of beach with a number of nearby hotels to check out if you get bored at the Sheraton. Additionally, you can easily walk into Koala, for more shops, restaurants and grocery store, meaning you can get everything you need. Not sure about the activities surrounding the resort though, that might take some more research.
