I have been pleasantly surprised how nicely run and managed this timeshare resort is. Located across from a nice small snorkeling beach, LBR is a very nice place to stay. Our unit overlooks the Banyon Pool and the surf break across the street. We can hear the watrfalls of the pool but also a lot of children playing in the... More

We stayed at this resort for a week. Extremely clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. Lots of activities for families. We played mini golf and tennis. The resort had 3 pools with hot tubs that were sparking clean. Across a not too busy street is a wonderful snorkeling beach. Units have full kitchens and comforts of... More

I was a little apprehensive about staying here, only because I've seen some crazy timeshare properties, but my husband and I loved this property. We came here to celebrate out 25th anniversary. I called ahead to make sure they knew about our celebration and that we would like an ocean view, if possible. The unit we had was over the... More

We have been coming to this resort for 6 years. We would NEVER think of going to another resort!! The units are well done, very clean and well furnished with a nice kitchen that has a good supply of equipment (e.g. knives, bowls). The front desk (Angel, Susan and all others) are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. They always have... More

Very nice - nothing over the top - but very comfortable. Three pools, nice staff (go Bibba!), lots of opportunities provided for guests to explore on the island. Beach is right across the road, restaurants nearby. Shopping is walking distance. Great location. Great accommodations.

We did an Interval International exchange to LBR. We weren't sure what to expect, but it got good reviews, so we thought we'd give it a try. Much to our surprise, every room is an ocean front room with beach right across the street. We had a 1st floor room which is actually raised about 3 feet above the ground... More

You have to know Kauai to understand one of the best things about this resort. It is on the Southwest side of the island, near Poipu. This is the "dry" side of the island. The highest point on the island has either the first or second greatest rainfall in the world, yet the rainfall at Poipu is only about 15... More

Place is located in a beautiful spot. Beach is so close you can walk to snorkel or watch beautiful sunset. People in reception area were very good and helpful. Parking is not a problem. Kitchen, living room and bedroom were well equipped. No bugs. The floor tiles felt sticky under bare feet. This is the only negative thing ji can... More
