The facilities are beautiful, the Lava Lava beach club bar was great. Too bad it closes at 10 pm every night... The complimentary yoga clases are great, they have a...

The Kauai Shores is the best place for vacation from families (locals & tourists alike), pleasure to business because of the convenient location, as well as the awesome staff from check-in, grounds & housekeeping. You feel as if you're in a plantation villa of a boutique venue away from home. The renovation is retro & the rooms are clean. This...

Friendly and helpful staff. This hotell is a bit too big to get that cozy feeling overall but the bar and lounge area is really nice and a chill Place to hang out. Morning yoga class by the beach was included in the price twice a week which was really nice.
