The Grand Hyatt Kauai is way too big for my taste - like an apartment housing complex surrounding a golf course, that just happens to be on a beach. But, since there really are no boutique hotels on Kauai (and by boutique, I mean 30 rooms instead of 600 and an experience that can't be duplicated in 100 other locations), it's not a bad option for a short(ish) stay on the island.
Service is truly top notch, rooms are nice and clean - though walking 10 minutes to get to it... meh..., grounds are beautiful (albeit in a dated and overly-groomed golf course / DisneyWorld sort of way), restaurants are good but also dated, a bit stodgy and mostly overdone. It is obvious that this place was built with weddings, banquets and vacationing business-families in mind. But, in the end, the staff does an excellent job of making it feel like a small(er) and personal experience. Great front desk with a knack for conveying a super-relaxed but buttoned up feeling, helpful concierge services, restaurant and pool staff were excellent... It just works.
