Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   A gentle boutique oasis away from the hustle & bustle in a secluded plantation setting on the beach. No other property can compare to this intimate and relaxing experience with the comforts at your fingertips of nearby convenience. Or stay in with a beach Restaurant or barbecue at the grill. Great for the first time get-away or family outings to the best island to visit, the Garden Island; where locals still hold the Hawaii charm of Kauai "aloha," as well as the Kauai Shores' staff. Great reflection of the management and exceptional training to provide warm and friendly service. Visit and stay because this is truly old Hawaii.🌺

Review:   Had to change rooms after the first night, super loud AC, front door wouldn't close all the way. Rooms were below average, but super nice grounds and nice beach access. If you bring kids ask about the beach next door. We found it just a little too late. Location is good too. Easy access different parts of the Island and the outdoor mall next door is nice

Review:   Not a fancy hotel but very clean and comfortable. Comfy bed and good A/C. Block out blinds too if you would like to sleep in one day, although with so many outdoor activities on Kauai I would recommend to go out there, which brings me to my next point. This hotel is perfectly located on the island, and it's just under 1.5hrs to the furthest point of either side of Kauai. Enjoy your stay!

Review:   This place is great! Right next to the beach and a shopping center. The rooms are clean and vibrant. Each room has its own lanai. The amenities include: 2 pools, free bikes to borrow, yoga classes most days, a jacuzzi spa, AIR CONDITIONING, coin operated washers and dryers, free valet or self park, lawn games, and a delicious beach front restaurant. The only downside to this place may just be an issue on this island in general; the water pressure is horrible. The hot water goes from burning to tepid quickly when the water pressure dips so if you don't want a cold shower, skip the cold all together. Overall, this is a great spot. Make sure you drive 5 minutes from this place to Lydgate Beach Park for the best and easiest snorkeling on the island!

Review:   Great location on the islands regardless of what you decide to do that day. Friendly staff. The bed was comfortable to sleep in. And the hotel restaurant, Lava Lava Beach Club, was a really great place to eat breakfast in the morning. One day we had dinner there as well, that was also excellent. Aside from that, didn't spend too much time in the hotel.
