Husband and I stayed here when visiting Kauai. It was spring break and prices reflected the time of year - around $250/night for our ocean view room with two queen beds. The hotel has parking which is limited but you can do valet at no cost to you (tips welcome) if you can’t

We stayed here in Feb 2018 traveling via Costco.Travel. Found accommodations clean and staff helpful and friendly. Location right on the beach was perfect and we would strongly recommend an ocean view room. Hotel is centrally located on the island and make it easy to travel

Very good experience for 1 night before going to our Princeville Time Share for the rest of the week. Pools were nice, hot tub excellent and walking onto beach from the restaurant was so easy. Nice, modern decor--full of light and simplicity. Restaurant was good--chef's

Had a great time! Everything we needed was there or super close by. Loved, Lava Lava Beach Club and that we were steps from the beach. Would definitely stay again. Though the pigeons are a bit of a nuisance at breakfast time overall our stay was great!

Kauai Shores was everything we expected and lots more. We require an accessible room and they gave us one that was well situated, close to the pool, beach and restaurant. The room itself was fully accessible and comfortable. Even the pool is accessible. The staff get full points

What amenities do you offer? Please be specific as I find this very important when I travel with my family and like to keep the children occupied? Do you offer Yoga every day or just how often? Is there an amenities fee? If so, how much is it per night and what do “we” get for it? Are your bikes single speed Crusiers or bikes with gears to make travelling easier and more enjoyable for people of varied ages and abilities? Do you have BBQS? I always enjoy getting to know other guests in the evening around the BBQ and sharing ideas! Being able to BBQ a nice steak at the end of the day is always a highlight of any vacation for us! What does the second pool look like? Please post a picture of the second pool! Is it safe to swim at the beach in front of the hotel or do you need to be a really good swimmer? Is it a smooth sandy beach? Do you have a Lifeguard? Will my children be safe in the pool or do they need to be attended at all times? How many Handicapped parking stalls do you have? Do your balconies offer any privacy or sound abatement from adjacent rooms? If anyone’s has stayed here and can answer these questions or post pictures, please do? I am particularly interested in seeing the second pool - thanks! What time does the music from your restaurant stop playing at night? If I have a room near the restaurant will it be noisy at night? Do you have elevators to accommodate elderly people or persons with disabilities? Is smoking permitted on site? I hope not! Will someone please post a picture of what the bathrooms look like? Is this a destination hotel where a family might like to spend a couple of weeks or is it more of a stopover hotel better suited to staying a few nights? The pictures look lovely but there aren’t enough of them. The location seems like it should be great!
It’s pretty hard to answer your questions in this format. Almost all your answers can be found on their website. They don’t do Yoga everyday, it’s a a schedule posted for your convince. I didn’t see any BBQ’s but the lobby restaurant was very enjoyable with live music. No resort fee separate. Pretty sure parking also was included. Limited parking spots. Location is great. Hotel is great “smaller” type hotel. The building itself is more like motel style.

"Ask for one with pool view"
"No true ocean view rooms due to property orientation, but some partial view rooms."
"2nd Floor with pool view is best."
"There is some noise from the hot tub, might want rooms further from this."
"Back of property buildings are near the parking lots and noisy"
