    Nightmare at Sheraton Kauai

    Imagine our experience was your experience... You are misinformed at registration upon arrival, then spend hours waiting only to get a room not even close in quality to the deluxe oceanfront suite you paid for. (In fact, what you get is a made-over standard hotel room overlooking the pool vs. ocean, and one of your bath towels has shreds hanging from it.) You spend the evening hours trying to find an available suite at another Marriott property for the period of your stay, to no avail. Meanwhile, knowing your looking for an alternative, management elects to cancel your room after the first night, saying your travel agency requested cancellation. So, you spend more hours investigating and trying to resolve the matter, only to discover the Sheraton Kauai and not the travel agency initiated the cancellation and lied about it. After being busted, they say they'll relocate you to a better room, for which you wait hours again. You then pack and move to the new room only to find it does not have the queen beds you and your friend said you need, so you have to move back to the same room and unpack again. For all of your frustration which consumes nearly 28 hours, on top of $4,147 for your stay, you receive a $50 credit you must spend at the hotel that's failed you and lied to you, followed eventually by an email from its management that offers no apology, but instead tells you the trouble they caused you has been resolved for future patrons. Unless you are comfortable spending thousands of dollars being abused on vacation, avoid this hotel (which errantly calls itself a resort). Book instead at the Sheraton Coconut Beach Resort in Kauai. We stopped there before leaving the island and the suites (real, fabulous oceanfront suites) and amenities are outstanding, as was the customer service we received while touring there.

    Nice Resort and Location

    This hotel was pretty good. The views are great from the ocean view room we had. The pool has everything you need, not a lot of bells and whistles, but the pool staff at the activity desk was excellent and knew me by name after a couple days. Poolside food and drinks were pretty good and came from the adjacent Lava's restaurant. We were given daily free boogie board rentals with our Titanium Elite status, which was really nice. The Elite status breakfast offerings left a lot to be desired and were not that good; portions were small and offerings were basic. Location is great and right on the beach. We walked down the beach to see the sea turtles every night. We loved our stay here for the most part, but I'd stay up north near Princeville if I could do it again. The Luau at the resort was really well done and being at the same resort we are staying at was very convenient. The kids and I did a few of the activities included in the "resort fees" like water color painting and a few crafts. We liked the activities and crafts and enjoyed them. The pool gets pretty sandy by the end of the day, but it's cleaned thoroughly early every morning. The staff were all very friendly and the service was excellent.

    This resort is half time share half hotel. We stayed at the hotel. You are frequently asked to listen to the sales pitch. Very nice place. Great beach. Nice pool. Maybe a couple average places to eat. I would describe the place as very sleepy. You will be hard pressed to find anyone really working. It’s weird. No shopping. One little coffee shop. Open sometimes. Concierge desk staffed when the mood strikes them.

    Beautiful hotel on Poipu Beach

    My husband and I just spent a week here for our honeymoon. The hotel was everything we had hoped for, and then some. We had booked an ocean view room and were upgraded to a lovely corner suite with lots of space and perfect views, not just of the ocean but also the luau show which is performed twice a week. The room had all the usual amenities and was very comfortable. The WiFi was rather weak so I landed up just using data during my stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in Poipu, which is convenient to all destinations on Kauai. And guest parking is free. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or just wanting to enjoy a nice holiday on this beautiful island.
