Kauai Marriott Resort on Kalapaki Beach Review

An elaborate tropical garden, waterfalls right off the lobby, Greek statues and columns, and an enormous 26,000-square-foot swimming pool characterize the grand—and grandiose—scale of this resort on Kalapaki Beach, which looks out at the dramatic Haupu Ridge. This resort has it all: dining, shopping, a spa, golf, tennis, and water activities of all kinds. A $50 million upgrade was completed in 2010. Rooms have tropical decor, and most have expansive ocean views. It's comfortable and convenient with free airport shuttle service.

    We loved the Mariott in Lihue!!

    We have just returned from our wonderful trip to Kauai. We divided our time between Lihue and the north shore. While in Lihue we stayed at the Mariott. When we pulled up to the hotel it didn't look like much. But when we went down the escalator toward the lobby we thought we had entered paradise. We were greeted by a koi pond and an incredible garden with waterfalls. We proceeded into the lobby and discovered the friendly service and attention to detail from the staff.

    Our room was a pool view with a partial ocean view. Our view was partially obstructed by the palm trees but it was still good. The room itself was nice and very comfortable but nothing special.

    The grounds and landscaping of the hotel were outstanding and the pool was the nicest I've ever seen. The beach looked good with the mountains surrounding the bay, however the water wasn't as clear as what we saw on other parts of the island and not good for snorkelling. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and service was excellent.

    Overall it was a great stay and there is no question we will stay there again.
