This resort really is quite lovely, but... there are a few things which I wish I had known before traveling. First of all, it's really close to the airport, and seemed to be somewhat far from all the activities around the island. You pretty much need to rent a car in order to get around, unless you book activities that...

We purchased a time share here the first year they were available. We come every year and have always had a wonderful time. Service is great, food is good. Cafe Portofino is the best. We go here at least twice every year and have never had a bad meal. I sure do not agree with Christie's reviews. She does not...

The property and rooms are well kept up and clean, however the staff is not great. Twice reported a light out in bathroom, it was never changed. Also we had 3 reservations we combined and the front desk did not combine our keys so we had get our keys changed several times, which they told us on the last day...

Murphy bed was pointless, like sleeping on grandma's pullout couch. Very uncomfortable. And the resulting couch was also very uncomfortable, too low and shallow to be ergonomically useful. The resort grounds were lovely, but pay more for a real, stationary bed. You've come all this way, you might as well sleep in peace. Unfortunately, there was black mold growing on...

We were totally surprised what was hidden beyond the unassuming exterior of this time share / hotel Marriott. After descending 3 stories down the escalator you emerge into tropical paradise with koi ponds and huge works of arts. After passing through the open lobby with large marble pillars and an antique outrigger canoe you are transported to a pool and...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom with Lani for a full week. This is a beautiful resort with tons of artwork, Asian sculptures, koi ponds and lush landscaping. We're perfectly happy just hanging out at the resort all day. Technically we covered the entire island in 2 days. We did want to go fishing, but the rip tides were too...

Just returned from a week at the Marriott Kauai Resort. We always are treated with the Aloha spirit. The grounds were exceptional. Our room was in the Hau pu tower with a pool view. We were located on the ground floor which gave us access to the pool and beach from our lanai. It worked very well for us. The...

We returned to this Kauai Marriott property after six years and it continues to evolve into a beautiful piece of paradise. Originally called the Kauai Surf Hotel from 1961-1974, the property next became a Westin for many years. The Iniki hurricane of 1992 forced most all the Kauai hotels to completely renovate and this spot was rebuilt and purchased by...

I can't say enough good things about the Kauai Marriott. Having just come from the somewhat cheesy Maui Ocean Club, where my Platinum status seemed to be irrelevant, it was nice to be warmly greeted with several gifts and an upgrade to ocean view. The grounds are immaculate. You pass a large koi pond on the way to the lobby....

“Ask for a higher floor room, that way there are less mosquitos and you can get a good view of the ocean. Also not next to the elevator.”
