This resort is really a treasure. Plenty of space to swim and a gorgeous property. Shipwreck beach is one of those beaches with perfect snorkeling some days and perfect surfing conditions other days so it was a treat to be in this location. The pool area is massive with a lazy river feel to it and some hot tubs. For my taste it was a bit cold some days in November and I wish there were sections that were deeper so I could dive and more properly swim. The resort is massive and not an inch of it is wasted. That being said with some rooms this means a 10-20 min walk to the room. After awhile here I found myself feeling like I needed to pack for the day when I left my room to go to the pool. Security is on top of the situation here and they were courteous when checking in on us while we swam at late hours. Make sure to bring your id. The lobby is gorgeous and lets in plenty of light. Never seen anything quite like it. Stevenson’s library is a treasure of a bar. After our first time there we went basically every time we could. Friendly bartenders and unusual but tasty/inspired drinks made it really memorable. Even if I am not a guest here going forward I will have to stop by. We also did their thanksgiving meal which was tasty and fairly filling even though I eat a lot. They did a good job preparing the traditional foods while adding a bit of a twist. The service/servers did seem a bit overwhelmed as we felt forgotten on a few occasions. Location wise the hotel is a moderate walk from Poipu beach which is a popular snorkeling spot with some nice places to grab a bite to eat. The drive to the roads that connect it to the rest of Kauai are a bit long and the location certainly adds some travel time to some destinations like the north shore. Read less

Even with COVID restrictions and slightly reduced WoH perks in place, this is an absolutely incredible resort and the only place I'd want to stay in Kauai. The staff is exceptional, they go to every length to ensure your safety and health on the property, and it's the ideal location as a launchpad for adventures around the island or just lounging… Read more

My wife and I extended our trip on Kauai for three nights after staying in Princeville for a a week at an "Open View" Air BnB. The $160/night difference we paid to have an Ocean View King Room at the Grand Hyatt, coupled with incredible grounds and amazingly attentive staff - it was absolutely worth every penny in comparison!
