    Heaven on the Beach

    We put together a last minute trip to Kauai. I saw the great reviews this hotel received and was not disappointed! The setting on the beach is gorgeous!! The staff was very nice. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Great value and location.

    Very nice location - easy access to any parts of the island within an hour. Hotel is Ron the ocean and the beach is swimmable. The downside are the outdated bathrooms and loud wall mounted AC.

    Kauai shores stay

    The staff at this hotel are excellent. Responsive, friendly, cheerful. I just can’t say enough good things about them. The hotel was recently renovated and is nice and clean. There are no frills, it’s not a fancy place but has a nice pool and is in a great location next to the ocean. Plenty of options to eat and shop nearby. I’d 100% stay here again.

    May 2021

    Glad to see the hospitality industry coming out of covid lockdowns. The hotel did a fine job with cleaning service. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were meticulous. The beach area could use some cleaning. But I’m not sure if they’re allowed to clean up Driftwood and beach fire remnants.

    Good place

    I have stayed there a few times. They are taking better and better care of the place each time we visit. It is also walking distance to a cute mall with good walk up food. It is also on the beach. More importantly, the staff is helpful. And I think it is affordable and clean for Kauai.

    Couldnt Have Been Happier!

    Beautiful grounds and amazing service. Room was perfect for the quick business trip or something a bit longer. Will definitely be coming back.

    A solid, well priced option in a great location

    Stayed at the hotel shortly after it reopened in November and it was exactly what I needed - simple room, nice grounds and amenities, good internet (had to wfh a couple days), and a very friendly staff. Also love the location as it a great jump off point for either the north or south shore depending on the weather or mood of the day; and there are restaurants and a good market within walking distance. It is not the fanciest hotel by any stretch, but that is reflected in the price, which is hard to beat. I originally booked a three night stay, but because some friends have changed their plans, I have rebooked for another 3 nights - very happy to be going back and I recommend to others.

    Literally footsteps from the ocean!

    The hotel and staff were amazing, especially during this bogus Covid-19 paranoia!
