Sheraton Kauai Resort Review

The Sheraton's ocean-wing accommodations are so close to the water you can practically feel the spray of the surf as it hits the rocks below. The courtyard includes three inviting fire pits, each surrounded by a seating area, providing an intimate place for guests to interact. The new pool bar is a refreshing hang-out, but the real fun comes from renting a cabana, complete with a love seat, lounge chairs, side tables, a TV, and a ceiling fan. The hip RumFire restaurant at the resort has panoramic ocean views, and a business-like café offers Internet browsing all day long. The resort is right on the beach, but is also conveniently within walking distance of many restaurants in Poipu.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

The Sheraton Kauai Resort makes sure couples get hitched without a hitch at one of three outdoor venues, each featuring spectacular beach and ocean views. Try for rooms in the ocean wing, where you can practically feel the spray of the surf as it hits the rocks below. Three wedding packages and budget-planning tools make the preparations easy, and the flexibility to customize these packages allows you to make your special day especially yours.

    Stay here for a delightful experience

    This hotel was awesome. We enjoyed our seven night stay here immensely. The location can't be beat, the beach is amazing and the beds are super comfy. We saw a myriad of whales off the beach shore. The luau was very fun and the food was good. The pork was excellent. Breakast was very good and the view from the dining area is one that can't be beat. The only complaint is the pool bar closes at 5pm...what's up with that.

    Clean, but crowded

    My husband and I stayed here in Oct. 2006 for 5 nts, basically because we wanted to be at Poipu and in a smaller resort hotel. When checking in the front desk never asked if we wanted help with our bags, nor did they inform us the elevators were out. We had to drag our suitcases up 3 flights of stairs. The staff near the one non-working elevator, pointed us to another, which was also not working. Never once asking if we could use help.
    Once in the room, it was fine and clean and you could hear the waves crashing on the beach. The view was very nice.
    Overall the hotel felt extremely crowded especially at breakfast. At other island hotels, we never experienced a wait like this one. The breakfast, which was included in our package, was ok, but could use an omelet chef.
    The hotel is tired and in need of a renovation. I hope it happens soon.
    We will probably try a different hotel when visiting Kauai in the future.

    hmmm!

    This is the sort of hotel that I just don't quite get. I stayed two nights because of business reasons, I was already in the Islands, so it wasn't my main holiday destination. If I had come from a long way for my annual vacation I'm not sure I would have been too happy. The ocean room was freshly renovated and okay, staff are lovely and the beach is good. Everything else is rather ordinary at the price, so I rate it as kind of a mixed bag. Lacks charm and character and is a bit sprawling and tired looking. There is just nothing special about it to make you really want to return. Didn't hate it, didn't love it!
