""Great Hotel for Everyone""
This hotel, besides having just about everything you need on site,including beach access and an outstanding pool/ spa area, also is in walking distance of shops, restaurants, and is centrally located to either drive to the North Shore area or the South Shore. We have been to Kauai probably 10 times, and we will no longer be renting a condo, as we have […] done before. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Honeymoon Venue!"
We booked this resort for our honeymoon and were very pleased from the very beginning! The grounds were beautiful, the pool and hot tubs were amazing, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. These words don't really begin to adequately describe our over all impression and experiene.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great staff! The bathroom in our room could use a door for privacy.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for a Honeymoon or any vacation!"
Just got back from honeymooning at the Kauai Marriott Resort - it was AWESOME! The hotel is nice and clean, great staff, GREAT pool. It was never too crowded to find a lounge chair by the pool - not too many young kids, wonderful pool/beach chairs and towels. Location of the hotel is awesome too - right between the awesome beaches and towns on the south […] shore and the fun activities and beaches on the east and north shores. Great restaurants within walking distance as well (Dukes, Beach Hut, Kalpaki Joe's, etc). Friendly pool-side grill staff as well. Would definitely go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel and grounds, nice beach. We had a terrific view of bay, even though we only paid for garden view! Lovely pool with 5 hot tubs. Nice restaurants. Good central location. No complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
This Mariott Beach and Resort was a great place to stay. The pool is huge and beautiful with the beach right next to it. The resort is pretty big, but it didn't seem like there was a lot of people there when we were there (Sept). One thing to note is that the parking fee is included in with the resort fee. So, even though the website shows a parking […] fee, the fee is actually included in with the resort fee. No need to get valet parking, we were actually able to park in the back of the resort right by our room. Outside of the on restaurant in the hotel, there are 3-4 right next to the hotel.

"Great for couples"
The staff is great and very accommodating! Definitely a great place for couples and people looking to relax. Don't go if you are looking to party or meet anyone single under the age of 50. It was very clean and they've made it quite a beautiful place to spend time.Genuine Expedia guest review
While we staying in Marriott hotel, between Sep.12 10pm ~ Sep.13 6am the whole hotel water shut down ... Actually next morning which is 13th, we had to wake up 5:30am to prepair to go to Golf by 7:30am. we really got hard time that morning...can you imagine that with out water?! I couldn't believe that big hotel like Marriott doing such thing as whole […] place water shut down... Other than that over all we likeed it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected!"
Friendly staff, nice rooms. Excellent pool and resturants. Central location, nice beachGenuine Expedia guest review
very relaxing, great location & beautiful poolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband really enjoyed staying at this resort. We had an ocean view room on the 5th floor. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Our room came with the breakfast buffet, which was good for a buffet and definatly enough food to get us started for the day. We especially loved the pool area and the waterslide! We will definatly stay […] again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to perfect!"
The best place to stay in Kauai for a worry free holiday. The atmosphere is low key, and the proximity of the pool to the beach just can't be beat. Many rooms have gorgeous views and the staff is pleasant but not intrusive. The location just south of the airport might make you concerned about noise from air traffic but it's amazingly quiet. The only […] air traffic you hear is the helicopter tour helos that fly over the hotel on their way south. The location is also great for reaching other parts of the island. It's a short drive south to Poipu, though a longer (but enjoyable) drive to the North Shore (Princeville) and really not that far to the West Side. The beach is usually uncrowded and always clean. Because Kalapaki Beach (the hotel beach) is on protected Nawiliwili Bay the surf is family friendly and very mild. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Surpassed all expectations!"
My wife and I had decided we needed a vacation and so decided to visit Hawaii. We read the guest reviews on the Kauai Marriott Resort and were mainly impressed about the comments on customer service. The reality greatly surpassed the expectations. Everybody was super nice, friendly and helpful. We stayed at the resort for a total of 8 nights and we […] are already planning for a return trip in a couple of years. Fantastic experience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort centrally located in Kauai"
Great location if you plan to drive around the island and sight see. There is a direct entrance to the resort from Lihue airport and a complimentary airport shuttle runs frequently. Grounds were beautifully maintained. Pool is large and there are multiple hot tubs so you have personal space. Plenty of loungers around the pool and facing Kalapaki Beach. […] Gym had sufficient cardio equipment and weight machines. Staff was friendly and service meets Marriott standards. There are local restaurants within walking distance of the resort which is nice if you want to take a break from resort food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok but will go some were else next time"
Ground level floors smell of mold and mildue. Had to have technicians in our room three times for Internet and tv repairs. Pool was terrific.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First Time to Kauai"
Everything was fabulous except they kept only leaving towels for 1 when both my husband and I were checked in. We also had to ask the second night for more shampoo and conditioner and lotion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for family"
I was pretty pleased with overall experience with this hotel, except for the followings. I booked a "standard" room initially. The room was facing the rear of hotel with constant background motor running noise of some sort, no balcony, and quite small. Also, the part of bathroom that contained toilet was so small that I could not close the bathroom […] door without the door bumping into my legs. After spending a night, we decided to upgrade to the partial ocean view, which made our vacation experience so much more pleasant. Overall, the rooms are pretty clean with modern furnitures/decor. The pool is magnificent (heated water that you can comfortably swim in the evening) with about 5 hot zacuzzi pools. There is a separate swimming pool for little kids with a mini water slide. This hotel is a family friendly resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
You name it and this resort had it. The swimming pool was great. The beach area was excellent. The food choices on site and walking distance off site were outstanding (Avoid Portifino's however).Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel has been beautifully remodeled. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ready to go back!!!!!"
Whether you want to just relax or go venture out, the options are all available here.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a great time, pool is awesome and liked having the linger option except that it was a little expensive. The Internet option was confusing but overall it was a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just visit the beach area"
Wanted to experience another hotel stay from our last one which was great. I'm sorry to say that the Marriott would not be my choice again. It felt sterile and didn't give you that warm Hawaii feeling. Their pool was lacking umbrellas, chairs beyond chairs but not an umbrella around and even with the rain the sun was pretty strong. I do need to say […] that all their staff was great though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Watch out for the secret $25 fee."
This is a nice resort with a really good staff. However, don't book on Expedia if you want to get any Marriott reward points. Due to Marriott's obscure rules and Expedia, you won't get any. Also, the Kauai Marriott charges you a hidden resort fee of $25 per day which they say is mandatory. If you can find a nice place to stay which doesn't charge this […] fee, stay there. PS. There is a really good, authentic Thai restaurant in the shopping center across the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staff friendly hotel experience"
We had a great time for a seven night stay with four teenagers. The difference here that was apparent as soon as we arrived, was the friendliest and helpfulness of the hotel staff. The food and beverage staff especially was so nice and would ask us everyday how we were doing, took interest in and asked about our family every day, and gave us great tips […] and suggestions on what, and how to do things most effectively and efficiently on the island. I miss them all already! Mele and Kurt were so nice and helpful to us. Beautiful large pool, very clean. We enjoyed having Dukes just around the corner on the beach walk. It was great having equipment rentals right there on the beach for paddle board. Great beach and short grass interface for lounging along the beachfront. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for all AGES!"
We are a retired couple, first trip to Kauai and wanted to experience various areas of the island. The hotel is located in a bay on east side (not a full-on ocean view, but nice!) and neutral to all areas of island - north, south, east, west. It is a very nice property and as compared to several other hotels we considered, did not feel it to be overpriced. […] The staff was excellent, always courteous and room clean. We LOVED the huge swimming pool and it never felt crowded even with the many children....and it provided plenty of lounge chairs! The hotel has a neatly manicured grass area with palm trees and lounge chairs in front of the beach. PERFECT for enjoying the amenities of the beach without actually being in the sand!! Food/drinks on property pricey, but to be expected in Hawaii. There are grocery stores nearby to bring in food/drinks for your room since there is a small refrigerator provided. If there was a downside, we didn't feel town of Lihue offered many restaurants but we found a short drive to beach towns five miles north or south filled our need. A great hotel for relaxing as well as enjoying the many activities offered on the island!! Overall, we would rate our experience a 4.7. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great time in Kauai"
Fantastic hotel, would definitely go back. The grounds and the pool are beautiful. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The food a bit pricey but good quality and fresh tasting. The beach is very clean and safe to swim. The golf course is gorgeous. I already miss Kauai and the Marriott.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and loved our stay at the Kauai Marriott. The location was great and the service was outstanding. Our room was comfortable and loved sitting on the patio listening to the ocean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best pool by far"
There is absolutely no staff available to answer any questions. Hotel needs an activity director to inform guest on things happening at the hotel . There is no Hawaiin themed ambiance or music playing to give you that Hawaiin feel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay, close to everything"
Hotel was great. Staff was fine. Only critique I would give is that the beach area needed to be kept up: empty glasses, old lime and lemon rinds, cigarette butts. Also, I would have thought that they would re-line up the chairs every day, and most days they were left in the same position as the day before. Also, was a little suprised at how early the […] bar closed: 10pm? Really? To get a nightcap? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel if you're looking for mediocrity!"
I have stayed at several Marriott hotels in the past, but even with the multi-million dollar renovations done to this property, it still looks like a 3-4 star hotel that has seen better days. Great for one-night stay (maybe), but not for a week-long, relaxing vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice Hotel. Spend the extra on Oceanview or partial Oceanview. Love the location,and the pool access to the beach. Nice restaurants. Bathroom is tiny.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was beautiful and clean. The room was perfect. Nice bathroom and shower. Bed was wonderfully comfortable. View from balcony of partial ocean view room was gorgeous! Only minus about this hotel would be the cost of the meals and drinks. Mixed drinks in small plastic cups by the pool were about $12 each. Breakfast buffet was $30 each. Food was great […] though. Loved Duke's Barefoot Canoe Bar Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the pool was amazing. The gulf course is just beautiful. We loved the Location, the hotel is not far from the north side or west side of the island. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was looking out to a wall...very small, not what i expect from a marriott. grounds were beautiful and pool with great service and drinks at pool. when we wanted ice though it was only on every second floor and had to really hunt for it.Genuine Expedia guest review
A killer pool. Actually it is so desirable they require you get an armband to be allowed in. The hotel is beautiful. The architecture leaves you wanting more if you are very particular; however, most will feel one is in paradise. The sushi restaurant is top notch, so don't bother driving into town, as is Duke's Restaurant. People who stay at other hotels […] and locals actually come to eat at Duke's. And on top of it all no entre with salad bar included is more than $30. The drinks are very reasonable too. The only surprise was an additional $25/day "resort fee" due at booking that covered parking, WIFI, and two "free" Mai Tai's. A recommended stay. Looking forward to staying there again.

"Kauai Marriott condo/ Subpar Housekeeping Service"
The front desk is courteous and responds to our call (AC not working) promptly. The room has a spectacular view. However the daily housekeeping service is not AWFUL. Cookstop, microwave, floors are not cleaned. There are visible food crumbs on cookstop and in the microwave that are left there until WE cleaned it ourselves. They don't even tidy up the […] family room. Pillows are left all over on the floor. They did not pick up the pillows and place them back on sofa. We even did our dishes everyday and did not leave any dishes in the sink at all. It was very disappointing especially this room is part of the Ritz-Carlton vacation destination club. Also there is NO beach access from the hotel. You have to drive to the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I have enjoyed staying at this hotel on several occasions. The recent renovations have refreshed everything, keeping the elegant structure looking and feeling new. I ate at the restaurant, but the food is over priced and merely so-so for the most part. The snack shop by the pool serves tasty sandwiches and fresh vegetables for lunch, and it has a small-but-nice […] selection of draft beers. I sometimes wonder how so many large koi can thrive in the koi pond, which is actually a fairly extensive "lazy river" that meanders in the central area of the property. Juvenile guests love feeding the koi almost as much as the adult guests enjoy watching the fish swarm during feeding time! The hotel staff is clearly well-trained. The rooms are simply hotel rooms, but the bathrooms are fairly spacious and the television in my room had good picture quality. The bedding is absolutely wonderful, silky soft, and cozy. And, of course, any one will tell you that this is the best pool on the island!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A MUST For First Timers (or Honeymooners)"
If this is your first time on Kauai, you should definitely try to stay here. We booked our ocean view room on Expedia and it was not only reasonably priced but came with some of the most breathtaking views I've ever seen in my life. Everything on the resort is just beautifully crafted and the vibe is so positive and relaxed. That said, if this is *not* […] your first time on Kauai or if you are looking to spend more of your time outside of the room than in, then there are definitely cheaper alternatives out there. The memories we made there are truly once-in-a-lifetime and completely unforgettable. Our only regret when we left was that we couldn't stay longer. Oh, and the check-in was a little bit of a hassle. The 'Elite' side was not clearly marked and while the check-in lines get a bit congested, the Elite side is rarely serving more than one person. And we, being of the lowly 'regular' class of people were asked by a rather bristly patron to move to the back of the storage class line with the rest of the untouchables. The only thing designating this as the 'Elite' line was a rather inconspicuous mat. I get it, you want your Elite customers to feel appreciated but in practice it just makes you look wildly inefficient having one line five or six groups deep and another line practically empty. Oh! One last thing! DO be nice to the island kittens that live near Kahili tower. They're total sweethearts We will miss them almost as much as the island itself. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great stay at kuaia marriot resort."
Beautiful hotel, great for families, easy to relax, close to restaurants if you don't want to eat at the hotel. Free tennis with loaner rackets (can of balls rour dollars). Great chinese food place about 1.5 miles from the hotel at 4252 rice (street the hotel is on). Dishes are 8 or so dollars and the place is packed with locals indicating the food […] is good. Went there twice within 5 five days. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We chose this hotel for our trip to Kauai because the property looked amazing....and it didn't disappoint! The pool/grounds area was amazing....the gardens, koi pond and lobby were also very nice. We had a standard non-view room and we were still very happy with it. The Kalapaki Grill served delicious poolside food/drinks and we loved that the beach […] was merely steps away! We also took part in the morning fish feeding since we traveled with our 3 year old. I would definitely recommend this hotel because it is beautiful and just has a great atmosphere. It's also so convenient that it's right near the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
THIS HOTEL WAS "AMAZING". IT EXCEEDED ALL OF OUR EXPECTATIONS. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND. RESTAURANT PRICES ALITTLE HIGH, BUT OVERALL VERY VERY GOOD. THE POOL IS FABULOUS, AND GREAT CUZ U CAN SWIM AT NIGHT UNTIL 10PM. tHE HOTEL IS CENTRALLY LOCATED TO ALL DAILY EXCURSIONS.Genuine Expedia guest review
