This hotel gets high marks for a reason. The service is excellent all around, the quality of the rooms and rest of the facility are excellent and the cost is reasonable. This is not a full blown resort like the Hyatt or Sheraton so if that's what you are looking for, don't waste your time here and become disappointed. The...

We stayed here for a week over Thanksgiving. We selected Koa Kea because of the high ratings on Trip Advisor, and were not at all disappointed with the customer service. Every person you encounter, from the valet to front desk, restaurant or pool staff was friendly and accommodating. No matter what we asked - from recommendations for restaurants or local...

After reading several great reviews, decided to stay at the Koa Kea for part of our Hawaii vacation. The Koa Kea did not disappoint! Absolutely the most romantic and relaxing hotel of the 3 we stayed in (Hyatt- Kauai & Hyatt in Maui were the other 2). The staff was so friendly, attentive and remembered our names for our entire...

After staying at the Koa Kea Resort a second time this November, I was so pleased with my stay, I felt compelled to submit another review. The Koa Kea Hotel and Resort was every bit as charming and terrific as it was a year and a half ago, when we first stayed here. The customer service is unparalleled. Everyone, from...

Exceptional service in an adult atmosphere. We only saw 2 or 3 children during our 7 night stay and they were quiet and very well behaved. The hotel was only busy Saturday and Sunday otherwise very quiet in the room and all over the hotel grounds. Breakfast was terrific and dinner at Red Salt was very good.

I decided to stay at this property because several places have rated it as the best in Hawaii and perhaps the world. What a piece of perfection on Kauai. This is the place to stay if you visit the island. Expectations were high and I was not dissapointed from arrival to depature, the service and attention to detail was excellent!...

Adorable boutIque hotel. Service was excellent and daily breakfast package with daily resort credit took away the guilt of ordering all those coconut mojitos at the pool bar. Bed was divine and double shower heads a real treat. Loved watching sunsets from the lawn and snorkeling right off the beach was like being in an aquarium. Would recommend to any...
