    Great setting, needs renovation

    The location and outside property is truly outstanding. The rooms and public spaces are very worn and in need of renovation. One of the elevators in our wing was broken throughout our stay so we used the stairs instead. It looks like the stairwells are never cleaned and were last painted when the hotel was first built.

    The Grand Hyatt Kauai is simple a magical property. While the physical property is spectacular and beautifully designed with unparalleled sight lines of the ocean from every vantage point, it is the hotel staff that puts this property over the top. Can’t wait until we return.

    Family Vacation - Thanksgiving 2023

    Wonderful place to stay. The Hyatt on Kauai is one of my favorite spots to go. The hotel and rooms are beautiful. The staff is wonderful and you are greeted throughout your stay. The pools, lagoon and waterslide are favorite for the kids and the rest of the family. Restaurants onsite are fantastic. Tidepools being my favorite and Stevinsons coming in second. The only waring I will give is that the Luau is not great. The food and staff are wonderful but the entertainment is poor. Find another one or go just for the food and drinks.

    Awesome family vacation

    This was our kids first time to our favorite island. They had a blast at the resort. We were all blown away at the attentiveness of the staff. It was our daughter’s 7th birthday and the staff went out of their way to make her feel special. We can’t thank you enough for helping create a core memory for us and the kids. We are looking forward to our return to the resort!

    A comfortable stay with gorgeous views

    First time visiting the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Received excellent reviews so we decided to stay there. Upon arrival the view from the reception area is stunning! Easy check in. A bit of a walk to our room as the resort is expansive but upon arrival at our room the sun was setting and the view was spectacular. The grounds are beautiful and we could take in most of it from out balcony. Listening to the crashing of the waves on the shore was soothing. The pools were fantastic and we had very little trouble getting chairs around the pool. The room was comfortable and the TV was huge! The only things bad about the room were 1) no microwave, 2) the tile in the bathroom and showers were dated and the grout in the tile was really dirty and aged. Really needs updating. All the carpets in the main areas are also somewhat dated. Lastly, the buffet at Llima Terrace was good but overpriced. Overall the stay was very good and we likely will stay again when visiting Kaui.
