Sheraton Kauai Resort
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Poipu
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Sheraton on Poipu Beach is not a mega resort. It's not too big, not too small, it's just right! We have stayed there several times and will stay again.

However we have always had an oceanfront room, my review might be different if we had been across the street in the garden view buildings.

This is overall a great resort. The location (about 30 minutes south of the airport - without the construction that happened over the July 4 when I was there, taking the main road down to one lane) is great in Poipu with everything you need at the resort. And if you need Starbucks as many do there is one in walking distance. There is a grocery store and tourist shopping, shaved ice, about a 5 minute drive away.
Rum Fire was a very nice restaurant with friendly staff but it felt overpriced for what you get. It's really the only place to hang out in the evenings nearby if you want nighttime cocktails. Lava's outside was casual with better food. I recommend the morning brunch, but watch out for the very aggressive birds who have no problem going for your plate. If you are a Starwood Gold or higher you can get 10% off on food at either restaurant.
The rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds and black out curtains. It was nice to have laundry and ice/vending nearby. I appreciated that there was a refrigerator in the room.
The cell service (AT&T) throughout the resort was horrible. Wifi was spotty by the pool - they could use a booster out here. The pool staff was very attentive which was great. Poolside cabana rental (they call it something different) with sofa and tv is COMPLETELY worth the money if you have a group - not overpriced like Vegas.
There is a beach right in front which is great if you don't want to use the pool. They could use more umbrellas, if you don't want to be in the sun by the pool there is limited coverage.

We spent 5 days at the Sheraton Kauai and had a great stay thanks to the beautiful grounds and an amazing staff. The beaches right in front of our hotel were great. We were close to shopping/restaurants. But the experience was memorable because of the incredible staff here. From our check-in with Betty, to the maintenance guys, maid staff, and waitresses at the restaurants, everyone greeted us with a smile and made us feel very welcome. Aloha was everywhere at the Sheraton. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We stayed on this property in July 2014 for five nights. It is our third visit to this hotel and we were put into an ocean view room as before which offers a great up close view of the ocean just outside your lanai.

The hotel did not disappoint us. Staff were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable about everything. The hotel has a great feeling of casual sophistication which makes it a very relaxing place to stay. The property in our opinion is just right size wise with all amenities close at hand and has a wonderful sandy sloping beach in a classic Hawaiian tropical setting.

We tried all the restaurants on the property and all offered very good selections with Rum Fire having a particularly inventive menu and food presentation. We would not hesitate to come back here again and is one of our favourite hotels in the world.

Room Tip: If possible choose an ocean view on the second or third floor. Definitely worth the extra to listen...

Honeymoon - Hawaii- Kauai - Poipu beach : Sheraton. We absolutely loved the whole experience.
Beautiful resort, awesome beach right next to the resort. Being our honeymoon we got a complementary champagne . We really enjoyed the open air luau and dinner. Lots of stuff that can be done in poipu beach. Over all, i could not have asked for more.
Tip: Flaunt if you are newly wed, and get lots of perks. :)

I've stayed at this hotel twice within the past three years. The experience here, from check-in to check-out was wonderful. The staff is so accommodating, they help you figure out what to do, how to relax, places to eat, etc. The pool is incredible and the ocean views are truly amazing. You can sit on your lanai in the morning and watch the whales spray out in the ocean (when they are there). There are breathtaking views from all over the property. The landscaping around the grounds feels like you are at a botanical gardens. I would recommend this property to anyone!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for an ocean view room. You won't regret it.
