This was a last minute reservation as I thought I had another night in a condo we own and I booked my flight for a day later. This was also during the 24 hour period the entire island was without internet/cable. This created a lot of issues all over not just at the KBR. I called to make a reservation and they said the internet was down and to try and make the reservation online. My spouse in CA was able to do that for me. I checked in ok, it was a little slow because of the internet issues. I went to my room (it was about 7:30 pm) and the do not disturb sign was on...my bad...I thought housekeeping had just left it on there. I opened the door and there was an older couple getting ready for bed. Obviously we were both surprised and embarrassed. I went back to the front desk and told them what happened...they gave me a slight upgrade. The room was clean and a little outdated. I went to sleep and at 10:30 pm was woken to a couple opening the door, turning on the lights and speaking in another language. WHAT!!!??? I didn't learn the lock lesson after I barged in on guests and here it is happening to me! They left with many apologies, but really how does this happen twice! The next morning I went to the front desk again and they said they had 18 cases of already occupied rooms being given out. Craziness! All I got was an apology. I doubt that I would recommend someone staying here even for a night. I would like to write it up to the internet issue but I'm not so sure. So that is my cautionary tale for you...put your inside night latch on that door! And can we just work the darn resort fees into the nightly rate? Was here for one night and didn't use any of the amenities. Also, know this is not on a swimmable beach. Go down to Poipu and do it all! Read less

A beautiful place to stay with amazing swimming pools and hot tubs! Much cheaper than the Marriott and ALMOST as nice! It just had a few problems like the parking lot was small and fills up quickly if you stay out late.

This was my family's second time here and it left us wanting. We loved it the first time and wanted to return.

This was my family's second time here and it left us wanting. We loved it the first time and wanted to return. The first day, the pool and bar staff were not very friendly and quite honestly a little rude. We did check in early and the rooms were not ready, no problem, however we never received a call when they were and we had to return to the desk on our own hours later to find out that they were. The cleanliness in the rooms was definitely lacking this time. The second day was better and my kids really enjoy the pool and waterslide. The valet and bell service are outstanding there. In my opinion the check in staff was not as friendly. Read less

Kauai Beach Resort is very close to Lihue. It's right on the beach. There is an amazing tree tunnel of giant fig trees leading to the resort. They host a music and dance show every Tuesday evening. Sunrises are astounding.
